Jon Bon Jovi‘s been touring for about eight gazillion years and he’s still raking in the money, so I think he knows a thing or two about hitting the road and keeping fans happy. That’s why, instead of speaking up urging Justin Bieber to stop being an asshole and a waste of space, he’s instead warning Baby Elvis against showing up late for his shows, because people don’t like waiting. Well, okay.
Jon Bon Jovi has branded Justin Bieber an “asshole” for emerging on stage two hours late for a concert at the O2 arena.
The 51-year-old rock singer, who has a reputation as one of the hardest-working men in music, claimed the teenage star risks alienating his fans if he continues to disappoint.
Bieber later blamed “technical issues” and claimed he was only 40 minutes late for the show in March.
Jon, speaking to the Standard in Vienna on the latest leg of the band’s Because We Can world tour, said: “Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new.
“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.
“Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an asshole. Go to f***in’ work!”
Well, I guess he did mention him being an asshole, after all. And while this is a definite symptom of asshole-ism, it’s certainly not the only one. That being said, one of my Top 5 pet peeves is sitting around waiting for people who can’t be bothered to show up to shit on time. I managed to get here, why couldn’t you? Take that tardy for the party bullshit elsewhere, ‘cos I’m not having it. I was raised to be five minutes early to shit – the world doesn’t wait for you, you know?
