Just watched Hot Press Awards on TV....Bono was langers!!!

Man, he was sooo sooo pissed! Fair play to him, he was really funny too! Great show, they talked to Bono backstage too, and get this, he saw the video of Slane, so it EXISTS!!!!!!!! Hehe, seriously, I watched him talk about it, he was saying that it was an emotional day at Slane1, that they were keening, or something, which means bawling or lettin out sadness in public, and then he went on to Slane2, which he described as pure joy, a real ROCK SHOW!! He commented on how they filmed it, and the fact that he felt he would never watch it or get the chance to watch it, but the other day he got the video and he said it is incredible, yep, looks damn likely it'll be released!!!! But during Edge's acceptance speech he never mentioned it as was said here, maybe they cut it.

And on the new album, Edge was commenting on it, about the whole rock factor and Bono joined in sayin it was an exciting time, that the next album could be the best one, cos it was a real rock time now, with bands from Sweden(the Hives?) and New York(Strokes?) and places around the world, and that once again it was about the music, the message, and not that other bollocks.

Bono also screwed up presentin the Best International Live act, readin the winner before he had even read the nominees, he was so drunk! Radiohead got it, and he was very complementing.

He also went on about how great it was to get a night out seeing as he was stuck at home under nappies as the missus was off savin the world, and he screwed up when readin the auto queue as well, a barrel of laughs! Larry was funny too, twas a gas night and they looked like they had a ball, esepcially Bono, and here's to Slane2 DVD and a kick ass album!!!!

Oh yeah, for those of you in Britian, it's on BBC choice I think tomorrow, and also on Tv3 here in Ireland again tomorrow. (twas on BBC Northern Ireland tonight)

And you Americans, Ash who won the best album award are releasin said album, Free All Angels, in a few weeks over there, so watch out for it!!!!

The Frames and David Kitt also performed, more mighty Irish artists, it was definitely a damn fine showcase of Irish music!

Wow, thanks for the report! I was hoping one of the PLEBA girls would see it and tell me if Bono looked HOT! Well was he? You say he was drunk? Oh, no, not again! Thanks for the info. Is there somewhere we can see video or highlights of this online?

Is it just me, or do any other women here think the imagine of Bono changing "nappies" may be one of the sexiest things he's ever done?

I think this only counts if you're a mommy. Crzy4Bono?? Anyone??

OMG, do you think this means I want another baby?

What does nappy mean? I thought it meant frizzy hair!

BTW, I have babies, and I used to work in a day care center. Still I'm at a loss?

Will someone tell me if Bono looked hot?!

Haha, Like02, yer a sicko

And lol, ya, he said bollocks Cass, and langers is a word here to describe when you very drunk, langer means something completely different

Desire4Bono, ahem, Bono, well, he was very...shaky on the feet, he looked kinda tired the poor guy, but still happy! He wasn't wearin his shades either. Larry looked really freakily young when presentin Caroline Corr.

Other funny bits were when then drummer of Ash was acceptin an award, he said he was freaked out, but not half as freaked out as he was while Edge stared really weirdly at him durin their performance He shouted at Edge, "Wear some shades or something!!"

And Bono was very gracious when recievin the best male award sayin he was a bad singer, which the crowd responded with a dis-believin hush, and well, he went on to say he just sang from a great place, U2

I think Larry has a thing for Caroline too, he never shut up bout her, how great she was and how good she looked

And snow patrol, a small band here were backstage and gas when they said it was great just to be there and sayin in disbelief "Bono reaaalllly drinks!!" hehe

Diapers? I've never heard them called that.

Bono sure sounded- drunk. Thanks for the report anyway Lazyboy. You're a whole lot less lazy than those PLEBA girls. I thought they'd be right on this one!

Hell yeah! Bono can change nappies at my house any time!

No really, I think the idea of a man who gives a crap about the kids is indeed really sexy. Must be a mommy thing.

Peace

Hey Lazyboy I hate to ask such a dumb question but did Bono cut off all his hair? IT sure looks awful short in the few pics I've seen. How did it look to you?

Hey Lazy- did Bono have that twinkle in his eye like in the ISHFWIL clip shot in Las Vegas???? I relaly like the idea of Bono having a few drinks, he strikes me as a very jovial kind of merry person on the drink

I dunno Stormy, he had it under his army cap the whole time! I think he mighta had it off one time or so, backstage maybe, but ahem, I wasn't exactly spottin his hair, sorry Where's Maddie when ya need her?

And Oz, hehe, I think his "glint" was a bit further on than the one in ISHFWILF I think Bono is a bit self conscious nowadays when he goes up to make a speech, cos he has got such slaggin and goin overs from people and the press for his "borin" speeches, but when he realsied the crowd were right behind him and not bitter, he was a right oul laugh!

Um...like DUH!

Here's a baby. Someone says to change the nappy. What do you THINK it means? To change the baby's frizzy hair?

You don't have to know the exact vernacular of the Irish/English to figure out that one. For example, if someone said, "I hoovered the living room" I can assure you it doesn't mean they were floating above the room or that they put in a bunch of Hoover appliances.

*ends Desire4Bono mocking

All in fun! Luv ya!
