"HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY!" @ 05:24 pm

hapavox:
In a sense I'm very glad that Bono was supposedly turned down by the NFL in regards to the half-time show at the Superbowl. Seriously, I don't want to see him performing with Jennifer "J. Hoe" Lopez anywhere. His message and purpose for performing are clear but the idea of collaborating with the likes of her is just plain dumb. Quite frankly...I want Bono to DISAPPEAR mysteriously from the face of the media.....UNTIL THE NEW ALBUM COMES OUT!

How could he choose her to collaborate on "An American Prayer"?? It's quite ridiculous. Sometimes I don't know what's gotten into him. I'm sure The Edge, Adam, and Larry are also shaking their heads but are used to the whole shenanigans their frontman puts on every few years or so..

I understand why he does it... trying to bring down the barriers people make with music... hiphop, rock, metal, rap... people often define themselves by the music they listen to and he's always been about bringing people together from different points of view.... hell his own birth ws the result of such a thing so really it's been his way his entire life. It might make us wince sometimes with the choices he makes but they are always calculated business decisions... I admire him for that in the end, even if some of the things he does make me want to crawl under my bed and never come out.

The community will just get better once the NEW ALBUM is out and Bono stops galvanting around with the 'cool' people in the media.

It's really time to talk about the music...enough of this promoting stuff...let's get on with the music!

Technically, if you consider the charity single, "What's Going On?", as a collaboration between Beyonce and Bono with a million other people...then I guess the two have worked together. Plus, they were both onstage together at the South Africa World Aids Day Concert too last month.

They weren't just onstage together, they sang a duet.

You're 1 in a MILLION.

Just a bad decision to work with her altogether. Thank goodness the NFL made the right decision of not putting the two together.

Good idea. Seeing U2 live on television in that other Superbow backl in 2001/2002 was one strange sight. I'd never thought they'd play at an American sporting event in my lifetime.
