Jon Bon Jovi - Jon Bon Jovi: There's always temptation

Picture:

Jon Bon Jovi admits there is always ''temptation'' to cheat on his wife.

The 'Always' hitmaker - who has children Stephanie, 19, Jesse James, 18, Jacob, 11, and Romeo, nine, with wife Dorothea - insists he is not a ''perfect'' husband, but he isn't interested in sleeping with anyone behind his spouse of 24 years' back.

He said: ''I have a wife who I adore, without her the cards would crumble. Every day there's temptation. I don't go looking for it either. Am I perfect? No. But do I aspire to finding a mistress somewhere? I really don't.''

Last November, Stephanie was found unconscious in her university dorm following a heroin overdose and the 51-year-old singer believes her plight to be more common than people realise because her generation are under so much ''pressure''.

He added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''There's a lot of pressure on this generation. They have a lot easier access to things than yours or my generation had.

''She was by no means sticking needles in her arms. But there's a lot of synthetic stuff in the world and a lot of temptation and access and pressures that just a generation ago you and I didn't know about.

''I wasn't aware of it, not because I'm not home but because it is a different world. Our world is far more relatable to our parents' world than the kids' world.

''There's many more pressures on kids - what is this college degree going to do for me, what am I going to be when I grow up, will I be able to accomplish things?''

And despite his rock star lifestyle, the Bon Jovi singer insists he has never taken drugs.

He said: ''I never did a thing. I didn't even do anything that could open the cover of the book. I was never attracted to it.''

Bon Jovi is a rare jewel--someone who is not only cool, but good inside as well. His passionate music seems to reflect the well-grounded person he is. How refreshing to hear someone admit they have temptations and are not perfect, but they do not seek ways to cheat on their wife, or do illicit drugs. What a blessing Dorothea has in him as a husband and father. The world needs more men like him. And what a great writer and singer too! Take heed..."men".
