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!
