Bon Jovi just couldn't keep it bottled up any longer
It was just a matter of time before someone had a go at Justin Bieber; the petulant teenage star has been infuriating people with his antics for the past few months now. Bon Jovi decided to say what a lot of people were thinking with his rant.
Bon Jovi knows how to work the crowd, Bieber just does weird hand points, two hours late
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new,” the legendary rocker told London’s 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.” Jovi is, of course, referring to Bieber’s recent tardiness. He took to the stage two hours late on Monday night, and has a history for nonchalance when it comes to timekeeping. “Do it once, you can be forgiven,” explains Bon Jovi, who knows a thing or two about live performance. “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 a**hole. Go to f***in’ work!”
Bieber has attracted alot of negative press recently
Unfortunately, for Bieber anyway, it’s not just aging rockers getting on his back; he’s started to get boos from audiences, too. “I'm 19 years old, I think I'm doing a pretty good job,” he said to the naysayers on Sunday night as he was picking up his Milestone Award at the Billboard Music Awards.
