Hello Hello!!


February 27th, 2009

oh snap, bono is finally tired of coldplay ripping off U2 @ 06:30 pm

_underwhelmed:

ROCK legend BONO stunned Radio 1 listeners yesterday by calling COLDPLAY singer CHRIS MARTIN a “w****r” live on air.

The U2 frontman also branded him “a cretin” and “dysfunctional” during a bizarre outburst.

Shocked DJ JO WHILEY asked the Sunday Bloody Sunday singer to apologise — and said sorry herself.

The Irish rocker, 48, blamed his language on it being “early” — even though it was nearly noon.

The shocking slip came when Bono and the band went on Live Lounge to chat between songs — and perform some of their own.

After playing Coldplay’s 2008 hit Viva La Vida, Jo, 43, reminded Bono he recently rated Chris, 31, alongside PAUL MCCARTNEY.

Bono, replied: “He’s a w****r.”

He then apologised, when asked, for swearing.

But he giggled: “Obviously he is a completely dysfunctional character and a cretin but he happens to be a genius melodist.”

The BBC last night apologised “for any offence caused”.

Well, he only apologised for swearing, not the actual anti-Chris Martin sentiment :)

It is a cuss, but it's not the kind used to be really malicious...

LMFAO!!! And as if I needed more proof as to why I love Bono! Chris is all B-man said and more... Hate Coldplay and their blatant musical rip offs. Wanna try and sound like U2 anymore boys.... Chris will never be a Bono, Coldplay will never be U2... they need to stop trying.

BTW Coldplay was tolly snubbed at the Brit awards... loved it.

Why all the hate? Listening to the interview, Bono was taking the piss. He goes on to call Coldplay 'a great band', and Chris 'a great soul'.

I'm disappointed, I thought u2 was better than this.

Obviously this is a total joke...as evidence by him saying "I'm joking".

If only he wasn't...

Man, could the article blow the interview out of proportion ANY more?? It was a conversational joke, not an "outburst", and Bono flooded CM with compliments in the same breath. Dramaticize much, The Sun?

YAY!!!!! I think the person interviewing them is a Coldplay fan, based on all the damned apologizing she was making them do! *rolls eyes*

CM really is a wanker. Thank god Bono finally said what we've all thought for ages ;)

Thank you guys for clearing up the "w****r" - all I could think was "wigger" and it was not making sense.

This news makes me happy. It proves I have been right all along. Sigh. Why couldn't Chris just be who he was like in his first few albums. He lost himself I think.
