Bono Slams Critics Over Wealth
The singer, renowned for his humanitarian work in Africa to promote awareness of AIDS and poverty, insists he would be "crucified" if he ever handed over his own millions.
He says, "There is a sort of a Catholic guilt that comes with making a few bob.
"Was it Russell Simmons, the godfather of hip-hop who said, 'You can't help the poor if you are one'?
"I tell you what would be more insufferable - can you imagine if I publicly gave all my money away? They would just hang me from the gallows. They would just say, 'Get on the f**king donkey and this way to crucifixion.'"
