Bono's shades

I'm not posting this on PLEBA because there'd be no question which option would win

Here's the question- how do you feel about Bono always wearing shades? Do you think it's a gimmic that has run its course and he needs to ditch them? Do you think they're cool? Do you think he'd look better, or more sincere, without them? A lot of non fans are fed up by Bono's shade wearing and call him arrogant and obnoxious for it and want to stomp on them. There are several ways to look at this, how would you describe your position?

(you don't have to post to vote!)

Bono needs to lose the shades, grow a beard, and start wearing hats.

I love his shades. I love him when he takes them off halfway through concerts so I can see his beautiful blues. But I do love his shades.

And though I'm a girl I love collecting his sunglasses! I love sunglasses, and he just finds the coolest ones. I am coveting the new D&G's....

And here I thought this poll was all about me.

Seriously, the shades are cool, but it wouldn't kill him to take them off once in a while so we can all get a look at those purty blue eyes.

I voted for reducing the wearage by 50%. I really miss seeing his fabulous blue eyes, yet I understand that Bono's shades are a part of him these days. I do have a question? Does Bono wear glasses because he needs to correct his vision or is he wearing them for fashion reasons?

Neither, I think. They're not prescription. A fan who got a chance to try them on said they most definitely aren't. Also, while they are indeed fashionable, Bono has said himself they act as a "shield", something for him to hide behind. This is for at least three reasons that he's mentioned: to hide the occasional redness of his eyes caused by allergies; to cut down on glare that sometimes triggers headaches; and, most especially, to act as a bit of a wall between his private self and the public persona. People see the glasses; they don't see him. He seems to like it this way.

Shades look on him and they are healthy! They protect eyes from UV radiation and prevent diseases consequential to such exposure and also early wrinkles, not only because of the sun but from squinting in a harsh light including on stage.

I never considered he might be wearing them for health reasons. If he is, by all means he should continue to wear them.

The sun, yes, of course. But I can't believe he'd be wearing them for health reasons INdoors though they have to be for show. Wearing them indoors GIVES me the headache, and it seems they'd impair his vision in the more dimly lit rooms.

And Bono does not have a mullet, THIS is a mullet!

Keep them, because they make him look younger. But I think he should go without every once and awhile, so we don't forget what his eyes look like!
