Britney Snubs Bono's Kids
Pop princess Britney Spears snubbed rock legend Bono after a gig in Ireland last week, by refusing to meet his kids. The U2 frontman took his four children to Britney's sell-out concert in Dublin and they were desperate to meet the star backstage. But an insider tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Britney was having none of it. She just point-blank refused to meet them and they were very disappointed. She made some excuse about being too tired. It's ridiculous if she thinks she's too important to meet the offspring of a legend like Bono." However the singer was less evasive to some special guests - according to sources she welcomed former lover Colin Farrell and his pals backstage with open arms. The insider adds, "Some of Farrell's neighbors were there with their children and Britney had them ushered straight inside."

I am seriously disappointed in Bono. Exposing his children to such music??! :D Of all families in the world, I'd have thought his chilren were most likely to grow up with good taste.

No offence intended, of course... well, not much anyway.

thats what Bono gets for letting his kids listen to Britney! Ha ha I am just joking but it is a reminder that not every superstar is as cool as Bono and U2 with fan friendliness.

pft, Britney's a bitch, and how come they be listening to her music? I mean, doesn't Bono read its lyrics? ugh. I'm not gonna say what Bono should do, but I just disagree with him on that.
I always hated Bitchney.
And I'm Jordan's age...

makes sense to me, i mean, bono's no pop prince or princess, had he been like christina aguilara with her 3 or 4 illigitimate children (i'm guessing here, take the number of stars the girl has fucked, divide that by 200 and the answer = number of children..), the kids would have had no problem.

Okay it's kinda sad they listen to Britney, but I guess it's not a surprise since many kids do (and I remember the story of Edge dancing with Sian to BSB).

But Britney must have had something stuck up her b/c she and Bono have had a few interactions and you'd think she'd be nice to his kids...

What a snotty little bitch! Bono has more talent in his little finger than she'll ever have! Bono's kids are still relatively young, and their tastes will change when they get older. It's probably just a phase. Besides, after what she did, they're probably no longer fans.

Good for Bono

I'm just glad Bono embraces their interests and took them, rathering than running away and screaming like most parents would. It's nice to have parents who support your music taste and take you to concerts, even if they don't share the same tastes (like my mom took me to all those popmart and elevation shows without ever complaining)

Shame on Britney Spears for turning anyone away, not just "Bono's daughters". Younger people idolize her and the least she could do is recognize those who brought her to a level of fame like this...Bono's children probably have another chance to meet her, but not some of the other youngsters she's done that to.

Well, if she didn't let anybody's kids backstage I would understand, but I'd favor Bono over Colin Farrel any day. Of course that's just me.

In defence of Britney (which is a shock coming from me), I have to let everyone know that there is something really messed up with her. She broke down in tears a few weeks ago. She is running a few gallons less than full if you get my drift. It won't be long before she buys a ranch and a monkey. . .
