Watching Bono 'dance' never ceases to crack me up.

Anybody photographed from that angle would look preggers.! He looks thin and trim to me btw these days...I think it is the angle.

Unsolicited advice: Here is a great picture taking tip. If you want to look thin and gorgeous in your photos ask the photographer to shoot looking down at you, like from a stool or ladder. Seriously, it works. 10 pds gone instantly! Poor Bono doesn't have that luxury when people take his picture from the crowd like that but I don't think he really gives a rats ass.

I thought when you shoot looking down at someone it makes them look squatty with short legs.

It's like when someone takes a photo of me sitting down - I instantly gain 50 pounds. Must be the way he's standing OR that is one hella food baby. Looks like they ate a huge gazelle before the show.

Just take a photo of someone after a lavish breakfast/lunch/dinner plus unflattering angle: Voilà.

Seriously: Bono is NOT slim, he's had a belly for years and years, no problem with that, sometimes it's just more obvious and I'm sure he doesn't exactly think about sucking his belly in when he's singing because that isn't very helpful when you need to take some deep breaths.

I don't know what you mean, I think Bono looks great in this pic!? Thanks for posting!! And I personally think some of these flippant comments about his weight are very rude, even if they're only meant as a joke!!

His t-shirt is hanging quite highly above his belt. That's what people mean. And how is it rude when it's just an observation? It's not like we're saying OMG BONO IS SO FAT WHAT A JACKASS.

We're simply observing that his t-shirt looks a bit funny this way. Could be the food, could be the photographers' angle, who cares, really. We're not judging him, we're not insulting him, we're simply observing him.

As long as he's happy, we're happy. And he's looking more healthy these days than he did on his heavy tour regime. Even if that means a couple more pounds.

True, no one's been calling him fat. The picture isn't doing him any favors and to be honest, Bono has put on a few pounds in recent years. I don't have a problem with it, as long as he's fine.

Yeah calling him pregnant is a joke since, he's like, a guy. And unless he has more working parts than we know - it's not possible. This coming from a person who like Bono has a little more to love but not fat. Because of something I wore on Christmas my own mom asked if I was pregnant!! I'm staying away from anything with high waisted bow from now on.

It's all about perception I suppose!? Actually it was the one comment about him being pregnant that really vexed me!! I mean, not only is that rude and obsurd, but it's also medically impossible!! But I guess that's just me?!?

I always think Bono looks great. I'm sure he doesn't think about "sucking it in" when he's singing, why would he? I watched him singing at close range many times and his tummy doesn't look like that picture- not that I would give a crap if it did, I was just pointing out the funny angle like GG said.

I love Bono more than I should, so you can all be assured that I will never have anything mean spirited to say about him

But that's exactly the joke. Saying he's pregnant when someone wonders what's up with his shirt.
usually when people ask what's up with someone's belly, it's a female. And the first thing people ALWAYS think of that female is "Oh, she must be pregnant". And now it's people wondering what's up with Bono's shirt. So the joke is to say he's pregnant, which is a perfectly acceptable excuse with any female, but in this case it's a male so entirely not possible. Which is funny.


Damn, jokes really get unfunny when you explain them.
