Jon Bon Jovi - Jon Bon Jovi Too Busy For Tv Talent Shows

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has turned down a number of lucrative offers to judge a Tv talent show, insisting, "I already have a job."

The Bon Jovi frontman was rumoured to have been one of producers' favourites to replace Steven Tyler on the American Idol panel, but the star refused as he is too busy playing gigs.

He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I was offered all of them (the Tv talent contests) last year but it's not for me because I have a job - we're busy."

Bon Jovi admits he feels sorry for the wannabe stars who find overnight success on Tv, adding, "It's hard for the talent because they're thrust into a huge spotlight, then they win these things and they're expected to have a record that's on a par with the greats.

"I had 23 years to write my first record - I was able to develop a career in bars, I would never have won any of those contests. You see them there and they can hit the high note and then a year later they're a trivia question. It's a big ask of these kids."
