Bono Pissed at the G8 Summit Signers.

Best line is when he speaks about Bush and Putin and how the world loves a good "Cock Fight".

Methinks this is not the best title for this thread in hind-sight...

I would have titled it "Bono angry at G8 Summit Signers"

all I can see now is Bono urinating at people and that is not good

Yesssssss! At long last, Bono is blasting Bush. Gotta love the angry/liberal/ranting Bono of the Zoo TV era. So much cooler than even-headed bipartisan Bono.

"Bono takes off his glasses" is the stupidest title I can think of for that video.

Meet Bono? I'm not interested, says Canada's PM

Meet Bono? I'm not interested, says Canada's PM

You can stop staring hopefully at that phone, Bono. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will not be calling.

The Irish rock star turned poverty activist met U.S. President George W. Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of a Group of Eight summit but was told Harper was too busy to talk to him.

Harper, a somewhat wooden figure regularly mocked for his lack of flair, told reporters on Thursday that meeting Bono was not a priority.

"I've got to say that meeting celebrities isn't kind of my shtick, that was the shtick of the previous guy," said Harper in a dig at his Liberal predecessor Paul Martin, who met Bono regularly.

"I hope we do it at some point but my principle focus in public policies is not kind of to meet celebrities," added the prime minister, a Conservative.

Activists say Canada is trying to block a deal to ensure that western nations live up to promises to boost aid to Africa.

For the record, though, Harper said he liked the music of Bono's band U2.

Good! I agree with Mr. Harper. The most important thing about Bono is the music, not the lobbying.

He already has a HUGE ego. It's okay if once in a while somebody shows no interest in meeting him. Keeps him in check!

Just for the record, I'm not saying anything about selling out. It's just refreshing to see somebody not show ANY interest in Bono when everywhere people are fawning over him like he is some God. Sure, he is trying to do his best for a great cause but he is only human!

As for the bitching about the music, if he wasn't so involved in politics, the mediocre music, bad production and delayed release dates won't be such an issue! And then there would be no bitching.

Who's fawning? And why would you give praise to someone who wants to ignore the problem and not do anything about Africa? Harper's a twat.

I think he didn't meet with him for political reasons - he didn't want some embarassing quote from Bono published about him not living up to promises or something.

Harper may be a twat. I don't know anything about him so I won't comment. I just found it refreshing that somebody was ignoring Bono.

But why? Why is that refreshing? Basically you are saying I'm glad someone doesn't want to help the problem.
