but, uhh, im no Bono follower at all and i have repeatedly read about his unfaithfulness over and over again just through happenstance
which given his high and mighty attitude concerning other matters just always struck me as a bit queer
(its likely the only reason i remember the repeated accusations of him being a philanderer in the 1st place )
but no it is has not been "proven beyond a reasonable doubt" that Bono is an an adulterous lech with a taste for girls 30 years younger than him
Bono's wife is beautiful, dunno know what she's doing with him though
I love U2's music, but they are human beings not saints.
Prepare to be disillusioned (and that's The Edge's mega-yacht that they're partying on): http://www.hollywoodgrind.com/bono-c...ls-in-bikinis/
As for the married thing... well... yawn. I am pretty sure Bono and his wife have an open relationship - she seems like a pretty strong lady and I am sure she knows whats up... he is in france for cryin out loud. I am not saying that I would want the pain of dating him - but if someone chooses that rough road of dating a married man - I really don't find it dissapointing that he chooses to go with other people... its not really that big of a deal... esp since I am sure his wife totally knows about it... open marriage... seems much easier than hiding if they want to be together and he also wants to hang out with other people or have mistresses or something. I just kinda feel bad for that girl - she looks like she is having fun - but I somehow guess that over a couple years seeing him (if thats the case) it could get a bit painful.
Anyway some of the tunes are pretty good to me... and he does try to give proper respect to Moz from what I have heard... thats a good thing.
oh and if that girl posted all that publicly she probably does not REALLY want to be relating with him anymore... I would think that kind of disclosure on facebook is pretty much saying (perhaps unconsciously) "I want out of this relating..."
Did Stipe then say he was misquoted, or has he pretty much gone with the gay definition?
If it's possible for us to imagine that Bono has an open relationship with his wife, is it not also possible for us to really strain our brains and imagine that maybe these photographs are perhaps innocent and that Bono's mistake was posing "theatrically" for a 19-year old girl's Facebook page?
No, I'm pretty sure he cheated on his wife, too. But try reading the article again starting with the assumption that this is a story fabricated on circumstantial evidence.
A crazy assumption, granted. I mean, it's not like a 19-year old with modeling and fashion industry ambitions would ever use a celebrity to generate publicity for herself, right?
Here is a transcript from a short interview Stipe did on MTV some years back.
Sexuality and desire are very fluid things and in a world that tends to think of things as one way or the other, there’s another and I fit into the Other.
Nobody wanted to hear that in 1994. People who define themselves as straight are challenged by it, because it challenges their ideas of their own sexuality. People who define themselves as gay or lesbian are upset by it because they went through quite a struggle to define themselves as gay or lesbian. So people didn’t really want to hear what I had to say which is, “I don’t fit into either one of those, I’m somewhere in the middle”. I don’t want to be labeled as bi-sexual because that’s just another label. Lets come up with some term that covers all the basics, that’s where the word “Queer” is a little more all encompassing.
& speaking of Bono's cheating ways, I recall stuff being written about him being with
Andrea Corr now when i read about that, i felt not only jealous of him
but well, i mean, who could blame
him really , but more than one other person(other than his wife) is a pattern folks
Sure worm, I said that I am sure his wife knows whats up. I am not suggesting that he is surely having a love or physical affair with this girl.
I was basically addressing the "worst case scenario assumption" that the article and the poster kind of points to.
I was reacting to the disappointment in those who stray from marital bonds and I was also offering my view on how I feel an older, more experienced, and powerful man should conduct himself if he is doing so with a very young woman... in my view and experience.
It is also experience that leads me to believe (personally) that there is no way that guy is holding that girls leg in that manner and not at least making out with her... (not Bono... the other dude.)
I really don't know or care if Bono cheats on his wife. I was just attracted the subject matter of powerful, committed in a long term relationship, charismatic, rich men getting involved with much younger women... I tend to chime in on subjects that I know a little something about. And thats all I'm gonna say about that. :|
Also remember... its often very easy to blame the young woman in all of this... perhaps too easy. careful with that! i'd say... she is a student... and at 19 I can't remember that kind of hustle.... it starts when you have to pay your school loans off... not while you are spending them.
Oh and my open relationship assumption is not just assumption... I am pretty sure I heard that somewhere - in one of the many articles or bits I have read about bono over the years.

oh and I am not really sure how it is... or if it is possible that his wife does not cheat on him. I sure as hell would... sorry bono... but he is no Moz in the looks and charms dept.
This should actually be about whether or not anyone can blame HER for cheating on him. I think he is 5ft 2 or something... jumping around with a megaphone. Fine for U2 or a concert or whatever... but gosh... get the girl a vacation with a basketball player please...
(and in case you wonder, worm... the basketball player bit is a joke... I don't assume sexual relations everywhere I look... quite the contrary usually I ((like most people)) project my own reality ((like it or not)) of such connections arising very rarely - like the 5th full moon in the 3rd eclipse on the winter solstice type shit... so don't assume I see relationship every time i see a photo of two people in a bathing suit... I was just addressing the implied if not stated.)

Personally I think they're somewhat damning. You're right about Bono's friend. There's more there than "Say cheese!"
I've also learned not to trust these kinds of photos in the current media environment.
I am just in from Carnegie and Moz looked DASHING and fantastic in his tux and the sound at Carnegie was very good... nice experience... hahah I don't have any energy for lil bono right now... It's a mystery to me why that girl would want to hook up with him anyways to be honest!
And worm, that girl probably IS a bitch... but I hate when people always blame the girl...
She is lame posting that on her facebook though... I'd say. Open relationship or not, Bono is a dad and his family and kids deserve a bit of respect and privacy despite the agreement (if any) concerning their marriage and affairs. I would not want pics of my dad or husband or even my part time lover doing that posted up on the internet...
So that girl...whether or not anything is her "fault..." she is pretty lame posting pics of herself partying with bono on facebook.
