Someone gave me the link.
Oh, and I like U2. I'm not a lover or hater, but an in-betweener. Boy, Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby are records I couldn't bare to live without. But some days I do have enough of Bono's face.
Bono's a hypocrite? How so?
Pretty cool video, and song is okay. Not for me, but it's not terrible.
I think it's easy to call Bono a hypocrite, but we can't wait for pop stars to save the world, and he does spend a lot of his time, the most valuable commodity, trying to change things for the better. I think most of us, in his position, would spend our time doing things that weren't so worthwhile, whatever it is that turns you on personally.
Also, even though he is rich, the amount of difference he can make with his money is not even a percentage of the amount that average people can make if they direct their energy towards positive change.
I also get sick of Bono, and he's always been a little too dramatic for me. I've liked U2's music for a long time but they've never been a favorite. I can't really fault the way he lives though, as he does get a lot of attention directed in the right areas, and he does have access to people like George Bush, and actually seems to be heard. What he might think privately is a different thing; he knows how to play the game.
So I don't mind if anyone doesn't like him, but I don't think it's really fair to say he is a hypocrite.
