Bono Teaches West Modesty

Hip-hip mogul KANYE WEST is being taught the art of modesty - by U2 frontman BONO.

However, the GOLD DIGGER star, who enjoys visiting record shops to buy his own CDs, remains supremely self-confident despite the Irish rocker's attempts to dent his arrogance.

He says, "(Bono) is teaching me to be nicer.

"(But) if someone else had made that album (THE COLLEGE DROPOUT) I would've bought it.

"I think my music is the greatest because I worked hard to get it that way."

a lot of artists. . . okay, a lot of HUMANITY could use a lesson in modesty and the gift of deference from Bono. he's got a way of valuing everyone that makes each of us feel like a million bucks, from the best to the least of us, with no pretention, no phonyness projected from him.occassionally i'll hear of a current artist who gives press to the preaching of Bono that they try to avoid. i feel saddened, almost ashamed, for them. i can't think of a finer mentor who has maintained his musical and personal and professional integrity with original bandmates and lifemates intact. a lot can be learned and gleaned from him. not just modesty and deference, but that's a good start. sammi fredenburg
