Why Bono is Anoying

Thgis is about Bono from that site:

Why he might be annoying:

When asked what he thinks about current radio music, he said: 'It's so sweet. I feel that my teeth are rotting listening to the radio.'

He is arrogant and feels that his songs are much more important than others. (?)

He is a deluded egomaniac.

He admits to using illegal drugs. (?)

Why he might not be annoying:

His songs have messages.

He performs at multiple charity events (Live AIDS, Amnesty
International Rock Tour, etc.).

He covered the Beatles' 'Helter Skelter,' claiming he was taking it back from Charles Manson.

I have never heard of Bono admiting taking illegal drugs...
Corect me if i'm wrong...

Well, probably a lot of the people who voted there didn't know who Larry or Adam were... just as I am now voting "annoying" for some celebrities and I have no idea who they are.

I highly suspect that Bono takes a heap of illegal drugs. He does it to spite people who put him on a pedestal. And for the enjoyment of course.

(This is tongue in cheek).

Bono takes drugs for his Live AIDS (sic) performances.

I hate people who try to feel cool by joking on others. That site had Bono up back during the tour, and back then he was only 36% and we went on a 'no' voting spree to bring it down. I can't believe he's still up there and they've added the whole band!

We also have to consider that there are a lot of 'annoying' idiots on the internet who don't even know anything about the people listed who are going to go there and vote EVERYBODY annoying just for kicks and giggles, so the numbers are never going to be accurate on any of the 'nominees.'

About the drugs crap, I've never heard of him saying that and even if he did why is that annoying? Most rock stars are or have been big time drug abusers. Bono has never been known for that, he's never been arrested or put in rehab or anything. If Bono took a few puffs of pot or something big deal. Is anybody calling all the junkies and cokeheads 'annoying?' If that's all they can try to use against him they don't have much of a case!

Why should this even matter to anyone?

Memo to U2: Get that new album out so we can really talk about something!!!

"entitled to use their fanbase to dictate world policy?!?"


What's so wrong about reminding people where they're from?

LOL! I loved the quote about the radio music.

Oh yeah...I wonder where they got that "info" about drugs. I don't recall him ever saying U2's music is more important that other band's.
IMO it's "confident" , not arrogant.

Adam was the driving force? I thought Larry was that when he posted the sign in school. Looks older than he is? I don't think so.

How do they figure Larry is the least talented? Isn't he the only one with actual music education/school behind him? What's wrong with thanking pets anyway? Since when is he married?


My oh my, guess I have a lot to learn then.
