Bono love, please

I normally can read Bono hate rants and giggle at the stupidity and the utter hypocrisy of the statements made by these ranters. In fact, reading Bono hate rants usually makes me happy and leaves me with a feeling of even more love, respect, and admiration for the man.

However, today I reached my limit of how much Bono hatred I can read. Something I read (and won't repeat because I don't want to give voice to ignorance and terrorism) upset me and I was left with a pit in my stomach.

So, please, join me in the Bono love. If you love him, comment. If you like him, comment. If you respect him, comment. If you agree with him, comment. If you admire him, comment.

Bono is pretty much my hero
Yes! Mine, too!

He makes my heart go light.
Aww, I'm with you, I usually laugh but at times it's too much, pathetic and just unnecessary. Considering he does more each month than the people haters probably admire would ever do in their whole life :p

I love him because... well, what's not to love, he's funny, talented and selfless to name but a few things :D
Most of the time what people say is just so incredibly untrue (or so true, in the cases where they say he's egotistical or pompous - HELL YEAH, he is! :D) that it makes me laugh.

When people threaten him or his family with violence because they don't like him, it ceases to be funny. Really quickly.
Nothing but love here. While some criticism is valid and necessary, most of the attacks aimed at Bono are cynical, hypocritical, uninformed, and mean-spirited.

He's been a wellspring of inspiration for millions, and a catalyst for hope for millions more.

And he is wicked funny.
It never ceases to amaze me just how funny he is! In a live song, he will spout out something that will have me cackling and I catch myself looking around my empty room to see if anyone else caught that witticism. Something about that Irish wit - must be in the soil.

PS - LOVE your name!

I love how he pokes fun at his imperfections at times when you really don't expect him to.

He is an egomaniac and insecure at the same time. That is a special talent.
I love Bono. I think I have a lot in common with him- therefore we would never be friends.

I love Bono. I think he's a beautiful man on the outside.

I love Bono. I think he's an even more beautiful man on the inside.

I adore Bono because he is so completely selfless it's disgusting.

And mostly, I love Bono because I hate cigarettes, but he looks DAMN good smoking one.
I am insanely jealous of Bono at times because he is who I want to be.

And yes! re: cigarettes.

Bono is what I can only hope to be like when I am older. I have a great respect for his music, his ideas, and his good works. Anyone who bashes the man is ignorant. Seriously.


He is also really really sexy. hehehe! Thanks for the pictures! lloooooooovvee it!
Sometimes a lyric will come out of his mouth that sends chills all over me - whether it's the first or the hundredth time I have heard it. I listen to his songs and think, "God, I wish I had written that!"

It's not just his words; he does things with his voice that just send me to another plane. Most of the songs on Wide Awake in America and The Unforgettable Fire have that ability. "Promenade" - when he sings "Roman candles, lightning, lights up the sky" my body takes on the same chemical properties as a pretzel.

Achtung Baby and Zooropa do things to my chemical make-up that are inexplicable in human terminology.

And I love the soft-spoken way he talks in interviews. It belies the crazy, open-mouthed Bono that he portrays in pictures.

Bono > love


The sexy that he is is just icing. But I think that he is made more sexy because of what he is like.

I love bono for all the hard work he does for his community and for africa - and he has a very sexy voice!
I love how, even when he is discussing the most serious matters, he can be silly as hell.
YAY! Let's all love Bono! He's awesome! He's one of the best song writers (or something like that) ever! A man who comes up with such amazing beautiful lyrics deserves boat loads of love!
♥♥♥Bono♥♥♥

Is that a good amount of Bono love? lol

Poor Bono, such a nice guy, I don't understand why some ppl hate him, I never heard of him doing anything bad so usually the hate is based on assumptions that he only does the Africa thing for marketing... Tsk tsk tsk at cynical ppl
That IS a lot of Bono Love! <3

But. . . if the only thing he ever did for Africa was marketing. . .HOW would that be a bad thing??

He is not asking people to give up THEIR money - just their votes. He is not asking people to fly to Africa and feed the poor - just to make more socially-conscious consumer choices. In short, he is asking nothing of the people that he hasn't given himself.

And those of us who know know that he has given SO SO much more than just his speeches and handshakes. He has been there with the people and touched many lives.

And he has touched our lives vicariously.
Bono love love love. He makes me go wheeeeeeeeeeee and bounce! ^__^
I usually say his name in triplicate: BONOBONOBONO!!
I love him because... i dont know... he is the person I would be if I were him. I think the world is hating on him because most people would rather hide behind their ignorance than own the fact that things like that can happen in this world. But thats ok, because he is not going to stop speaking out... and that is what makes him so great, he is the great anti-sell-out, because he does what his conscience tells him to, even if it hurts the band right now (and he knows that they can win back most fans (even more fans too) with another well-done record.
Bono has more political savvy than many of the political leaders of the world. He is a humanitarian that knows it is not about taking sides, it's about taking action. If you and I don't agree on the big issues, maybe if we agree on a small one, it's a step toward progress.

Bono has taught me so much just by being Bono. Talk about leading by example.
I was really happy to see this post because for a few days now I've felt really bad because I've read some very annoying shit too. I actually thought about making a post like this myself. :D I just can't understand why people hate him so much.

Bono is.. I can't find the right words. Pretty damn awesome? He's one of the best singers ever, I love his work for Africa and.. well, everything. :D
If people expended even 1/4 of the energy that they use hating Bono for doing something good or productive, the world would be a much nicer place.

Why it is usually funny? For every gripe that someone has against Bono -

(-He's too pompous! / He has a right to be!
-He can't sing! / Then why does he sell out arenas?
-He's a sell-out! / Yes! He routinely sells-out his concert venues!
-He needs to donate all his money to the poor! / Because a prerequisite for HELPING the poor is BECOMING one of them?
-He's an ass. / Sometimes, yes. It's part of his charm :D
-He needs to stop talking about the poor and sing. / Because all of those political figures are taking care of the issues? Because they are even AWARE of the issues?
-He moved his business to Scotland taking away money from his own country! / As any shrewd businessman would have. He has to have the money to be able to afford the "luxury" of all the world travel and "time off" that he takes in order to save the world. Try doing what he does with a 9 to 5, jackass.)

- there is an equal and opposite comeback, usually one that is so painfully obvious that it needs not even be spoken, so it is better to sit back, tight-lipped and grin as one of those who are in on the joke. The joke being that Bono is the shit and no one can ever achieve the status he has in his young years.

People offering to suckerpunch him doesn't even bother me, because whoever did that would be annihilated, either by the man himself or by one of the millions surrounding him that love him.

People implying that terrorist acts should be taken against him frightens and infuriates me.

i love bono b/c he keeps it real.
Bono is the most down-to-earth megalomaniac I have ever had the pleasure of being in the same room with (along with what? 30 thousand other people??)
I love Bono beacuse he is beautiful, talented, soulful, a poet, intelligent, caring compassionate, sweet, charming and honest.
BONO IS MY DOPPELGANGER
By the way, where did you get picture 1 and 8 from?
