Bliss for Bono @ 08:39 pm

I'm currently feelin: surprised !

Mum cut this small article out of the newspaper for me:


Bliss for Bono

As if his rock-star lifestyle wasn't complete, U2 frontman Bono looks set to buy a massive £8million yacht in Antibes in the South of France.

The 45-year-old superstar - who has a £5m mansion in posh Eze sur Mer, near Monaco - was impressed on a guided tour of "Bliss", the super-boat once owned by F1 driver Jacques Villeneuve.

Our mole in the Med says: "It sleeps 12 people, has a F1 simulator on board and Austin Powers-style circular spinning beds." Tough life, eh?



Talk about fandoms colliding crazily - I've been a Jacques Villeneuve fan for years longer than I've been a fan of U2, so the thought of Bono buying JV's yacht is blowing my mind a little. *g*
