Diva Bon Jovi!

Who knew?

Apparently Jon Bon Jovi was fuming that he didn't make it on to the 2010 Forbes magazine Power 100 or the Musicians' Rich List!

A source reveals:

"Jon kicked up a huge fuss and got his people to complain. He couldn't understand why he didn't make the musicians list since Bon Jovi has been touring nonstop since February. Their contemporaries U2 and Bruce Springsteen were on the list. Even Britney Spears was No. 5, and she hasn't done anything this year."

Forbes confirmed Bon Jovi's people had complained and they explained:

"Forbes estimated each act's earnings between June 2009 and June 2010 and included revenue streams such as concert dates, merchandise sales, licensing fees, music sales, and publishing royalties. Bon Jovi didn't tour for eight of those months."

But a Bon Jovi rep refuted the reports saying, "That's ridiculous. Last year, the band took an eight-month break from touring, so there was no expectation that they would rank on this year's list. Next year, different story — their current tour is No. 1 in North America right now and No. 2 worldwide."

Oh, who cares?!

We all know you're rich anyway, Jon!

    NOT surprising. All he cares about theses days is money and being the #1 GROSSING (not ticket sales) tour. His fans can kiss his ass for all he cares.

IT'S NO SECRET FOR MOST ARTISTS, THE OLDER THEY GET THE LESS CASH THEY RAKE IN PER ANNUM CUZ THERE'S LESS DEMAND WHILST THEIR FAN BASE DWINDLES AWAY… SUCK IT UP. YOU THINK HE'S GAY LIKE PEREZ THE WAY HE'S BITCHING, LOLZ!!

    this is surprising to me considering the fact that he is actually one of the most sane and generous celebrities. he does amazing work for non-profit organizations and does a lot to give back right here in our own country (as opposed to those giving back by taking kids out of other countries…. )

    why do people always hate on bon jovi??? at least all the chairs at their concerts have people in them, unlike rihanna, lilith fair & other artists i can't think of right now b/c idk who else is on tour. he donates a lot of money to charities & he's very nice in person

    Jon is not a diva… not at all!

    It's just about being right.

    Actually… I would be bothered too if Snookie get's more attention being fat. And Britney being crazy. And they forget all about you when you've been working your ass of for decades!

    That's not being diva. That's just wanting to show the people what's true and right.

    And it's a strange and confusing way they calculate (or estimate) this nr anyway.



  16. 16

    Hmmm….=\



  17. 17

    I'm not denying that this happened but as others have said considering all the non-profit charity work he does, i find it hard to believe he would make as big of a fuss about this as you have reported. I do understand that if such artists as Britney are being acknowledged for doing practically nothing in the past year yet Bon Jovi whom especially this year have been touring their asses off do not get noted, I'm not surprised if he was a little ticked off. Nothing to do with being a "diva".



  18. 18

    Many people may not like their music, however, it appears that many more do. And, frankly, JBJ probably did more charitable work in the last 15 minutes than most people (including Pretzel) slagging him here have done in a lifetime.

    Mid life crisis? Nah…
    If they deserve to be in the pecking order, they should be. Anyone can make a list, and sometimes list makers aren't sticklers on research these days as long as the article makes deadline or air time is filled.



  20. 20

    you will ALWAYS be number on my list Jon! kep doing what you are doing and forget the one's that bring you down! bon jovi always!!!

    I´ve been a Bon Jovi fan since childhood until I listened to Bounce record …
    I think, as many of the old celebrities, he is trying to make money at the expense of recording lousy material as he´s been doing, and I remember, he did almost the impossible in order to have a wax doll at Madame Tussauds…

    And he is gay. John get out of the closet and start making great songs as you used to before.
