Personally, I think people can bitch and moan about whatever they want... it's not as if someone is trolling a U2 community or something.

On a more important note I ♥ that icon.

I just think it's sad that nobody seems to know about what he's done to deserve the award.

Thanks, I made it myself ♥

Its only personal opinion. No point losing any sleep over it. Millions of people hate U2.

It's just sad that after all he's done, it doesn't seem like the average person even knows about it.

Thank you media, for focusing on Vicoden addicts and sluts instead of the good celebrities.

What the hell?! This makes me angry. The amount of ignornace put into that comment it just makes me so angry. EVERYONE in the world SHOULD BE PITCHING IN! It's not just Bono. He's pitching in too. I'm not going to get into this here. I'll rant my way to that stupid post...

Love & Peace
God bless

They're bitching that he hasn't done anything, but they don't even know.

Yeah, they all sit in judgement on their high horse, but what the fuck have they done to relieve third world debt or reduce the aids crisis??? I am willing to bet Nada. It is easier to go on about what everybody else is doing than actually do anything themselves. As a fledgling protester and campaigner in many causes, you have no idea how difficult raising awareness can be. It really makes you appreciate just how much Bono (and lets not forget Ali) have done. They are engaging world leaders and I cant even get Joe public to give a shit. I just find people like those assholes who always bitch about how its not enough and why they hould not have to help. Grrr. The way I see it? Actions speak louder than words, in the end, and they are all talk.

I love how they're all "HEY DON'T CALL BRITNEY SPEARS FAT!!" but it's okay to go off on a man who's done more for the planet than practically all celebrities put together.

What the fuck, man??

The f*** Bono diatribes irritate me.

Your icon, however, delights me. *thumbs up*

Eh, screw 'em. They're just a bunch of misanthrops who need someone else at which to direct their post-adolescent teen angst. Bono is a good hearted person who's spent his adult life trying to help others in the best ways he knows how. It's a hell of a lot more than they've ever done (and I know more than I've ever done, though I am a member of Amnesty International). Those people are probably just sitting on their asses complaining about everyone and everything but not doing a damn thing to initiate change.

You can dream
So dream out loud
And don't let the bastards
Grind you down

actually he has kinda a point. I mean yeah he's gone to Africa but I'm not sure I think he should get the fucking Noble Peace Prize. A lot of people have done more work in comparison with their station in life. And there also IS an irony about telling people to relieve debt while he sits in a mansion. I'm not saying its right or wrong just ironic.

Private citizens/businesses cannot donate money to relieve third world debt. The money either has to come from the country itself or the debt has to be waived. Its in the contract. Bono can't give his money to relieve debt. It would be illegal. And the reason why many think he should get the prize? Yeah lotsa people do lotsa things, but he is one of the only people to be apolitical and bipartisan about it. Most of the people helping also bring their political agenda to the table. nd in the last year or two he has stepped up his work, equaling many of the contributions not just in money, but in physical effort, of those who do this stuff for a living. He far more than just what you hear about or see on tv. bono just has no need to publicise it unless media interest would help. If you are only judging on what the news covers, you are only seeing a fraction of his contribution.

That is actually my motto in life. I have to remind myself of that little phrase every time I feel like exploding from frustration over something!

Oh well, some people just like to bitch about stuff.

Just a note, though: Reading some of your lovely responses on the 'ohnotheydidnt' community, my advice is to tune down the language and try to make more valid points. Its hard not to take it personal when someone disses your interests, and in this case, your favourite Rock Star, but these people spend their time mocking others, don't give them a reason to mock you.

Don't waste your energy on stuff like this.

I couldn't agree more. Just ignore them. They obviously just like to complain for the sake of complaining, so why humor them?
