Totally Disgraceful......

Recommended Posts

No, Kris, youre not alone....knowing the paparazzi, honestly, bono "got caught in a picture that he cant get out of!"

 

I thank my college profs for forcing me to think critically...what is the source? are they reliable? what are the other sides of the story?

 

Those college papers I had to write were really difficult for me. Its so much easier and lazier to just accept rumor and gossip and speculation and heresay....

 

In a court of law, rumors, speculation, heresay-they are THROWN OUT!

so tell us what could be the other side of this story, spicy.... i do think it doesnt look good, but i'd like to hear another point of view here.

and please note: dirty-veg-pics are not allowed by this court!wink.gif

I mean, sure - one might want to think that Bono's hanging out with two young because his marriage with Ali is on a brink of a divorce.

 

But then again - it could just we as well be a picture from Bono's and his friends party, and they were just having a good time. Who hasn't been in a similar picture?

Well, honestly I think the photo makes him look like a desperate, perverted old man rather than a rock star . . . I mean maybe it's because I'm old (Bono's age, lol) too, but they look like little girls, not even women yet. Maybe it was all innocent, probably was, but perception is everything in the media. I could care less if he has a photo of he and Bush shaking hands, doesn't bother me in the least since Bush gave so much aid to Africa. Doesn't bother me either if he and Clinton are friends and pal around or that he gushed over Obama while playing at the inauguration. However, again, perception is everything and just because I don't care doesn't mean that it will play well on the public stage - it didn't and he has been laughed at for all of those things. I was glad to see the political speeches take a back seat to the music on 360 - those speeches went on and on at some of the Vertigo shows and I think that got kind of old. Like Surrenders said, everyone is aware at this point, so it can be toned down now. I don't like that Bono and U2 seem to be more known for aid than for their music. I get that Bono wants to use his position to bring about change and I find it admirable, but I think it's time to work more quietly behind the scenes to effect change and just be a band for awhile, lol. As far as ticket prices, cost of membership here, lack of exclusive content, and gifts . . . . . well, honestly, it could all use a bit of tweaking imo. Very irksome that it has all become so expensive and I would like to see something really special offered to their loyal fans. And why in the world can't we use our discount code on the vinyl?????

OMG I hate that picture and it is embarrassing.  I don't know the whole story behind that photo, but it just isn't a good thing to have out there.

 

It has become that when you mention U2 to people they immediately think of Bono and some of the people he's been linked to for his Africa cause, like Bush.  Even my husband, who's a real casual fan, brings up those Bono photo ops with Bush, eeeek.  I wish they'd tone down the rhetoric at concerts.  We all know where they stand and how to help if we're so inclined.  They don't have to try and make us 'aware' anymore, everyone is more then aware of the state of the world.  I'm not totally saying the old shut up and sing rant, a little blip about whatever is fine.  But the shows do seem to come to a screeching halt when the 'issues' are brought into it.  Springsteen usually makes a small public service announcement during his shows too, but that's it, then it's on with the show and his songs, like U2's, say it all.

 

 

I'll always be an obsessed U2 fan, I don't have any complaints about the music, other then making more of it and quit taking so long between albums, I'm not getting any younger and either are they.

 

i would love to see more cd's and less time between. but i also think that being pushed to bring out a new cd every couple of years has drained other bands/artists... you cant force inspiration, can you?Barbara it's not so much the only releasing a new album every 4-5 years it's the fact that they have got greedy with all the best of's deluxes different formats of albums and singles remixes and so on plus the deal with blackberry and apple i mean when i first got into this lot when Boy was released (yes i am that old) it was raw passionate music Bono singing Larry clattering the drums Adam banging away on his bass and Edge playing guitar like something i had never heard but now its all remixes and so on i would love for them to get back to what they do best putting out raw passionate inspiring music.

 

also the money i have dished out to be on this website is not worth it anymore not for the service you get....faulty website, an "exclusive" gift that i downloaded days after it firts started arriving and other issues.

 

The fact of the matter is that this has been on all day and as of yet no-one can come forward to tell me i am wrong on all this and to give good reasoning why.
