I've had a professional photographer as a close online friend for years now and he sent me his Jon Bon Jovi pics to check out. I have loved Jon since 'You Give Love A Bad Name' because he is a consummate artist. He was always in it for the love OF the art not the art of love (adoration from fans and/or the material things acquired from his creativity). So as I sat ooogling through the pics, I decided to see what info my all things actor/film site has on him - the great Internet Movie Database aka IMDb.com. I usually read the info linked in their bio and I found something I really can relate to no matter how long it's been since he said this very truthful statement. Plus, he named names. Read this:
"Some people just court celebrity for the sake of it. People like Tom Cruise. He was always a great actor, but I think the man's lost it, lost it. You won't ever catch me jumping up and down on Oprah going on about how I love this woman. And then others start feeding off it. Suddenly, Katie Holmes is on the covers of magazines. These people claim they hate the intrusion that fame brings but then they bring it on themselves by having huge entourages everywhere they go, attracting attention to themselves. It's a great fallacy. Another one's Paris Hilton. Famous for being infamous. And the people who should be getting the attention, people like Bob Dylan, aren't. It's sad."
And with that said and done, here's the 'song of the...'. Hope you enjoy the pics and the video to the fullest. I know I do!!
PS - I am acting this video complete with air guitar and swinging hair. I'm so glad you can't see me in my purple penguin pajamas. Now say that 3 x's really fast.
