Bono got a little carried away.....

Calling himself "the little lord Jesus" as he was leaving the stage at the end of 40?

I think he is the equivalent of a modern day prophet for sure....

But this really turns people off when he goes over the top.


Thoughts?

From our own interference crack news staff

[Q]40 (Bono introduces the band and calls himself "the little lord Jesus," and leaves the stage first. Then Adam, then Edge, then Larry ends with drum solo) [/Q]

Wasn't there so I can't really say much, but knowing a little bit of Bono's humor I would say it's tongue in cheek. A play on the persona that the media once gave him.

Am I the only one who has friends that are not big on the band because of Bono's slightly inflated ego?

I have a few that give me a hard time, but I can usually point out the ego of their own hero and they shut up.

My ex-wife and I had debates about who had the bigger ego Bono or Billy Corgan...had nothing to do with our divorce though. At least I don't think so...

A poor choice of words.

We need not fret as I'm sure it will be on his heart.
