Without question, Justin Bieber is a little asshole, but sometimes it’s nice to hear it from other people besides me carving it into the side of a national monument. (Until tomorrow, Mr. Lincoln.) So here’s Jon Bon Jovi doing just that. Via Page Six:
In March, the 19-year-old teen heartthrob was met with a chorus of boos after he turned up nearly two hours late for his London O2 Arena concert.
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new,” Bon Jovi told the London Evening Standard.
“They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives,” the frontman said.
“Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back,” Bon Jovi continued. “Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an a–hole. Go to [bleepin’] work!”
Apparently, Bon Jovi missed the Maple Christ’s edict that “This bull should not be spoken of,” so I hope he enjoys spending the rest of eternity in polite Canadian hellfire.
“Begging your pardon, Mr. Bon Jovi, sir, but would you mind terribly if I stabbed you with a pitchfork now?”
“Not today, demon. I’m feeling a bit crampy.”
“Sorry to hear, sir. So just fresh water again then is it?”
“If you don’t mind.”
“Please, I insist.”
You goddamn socialist bastards, WHERE DOES IT END?
