There was nothing ordinary about that performance, and we LOVED it!
U2 took the stage at the 2014 Oscars to perform their nominated song Ordinary Love from Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom!
The irish rockers certainly didn't disappoint either as Bono reminded us that he has a voice most of us would kill to have!
Ch-ch-check out their awesome performance (above)!
U2 is too good to the world!
Not only have the musicians premiered their new song Invisible as a Super Bowl XLVIII ad, but they have also teamed up with Bono's foundation Red and Bank of America to donate $1 to the Global Fund for each iTunes download within 24 hours.
Oh and did we mention the download is free for the day too??!
The fundraiser is just one step the foundation is taking to FINALLY put a stop to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
Now THAT is true rock n' roll!
Ch-ch-check out the jam's debut (above)!!!
And CLICK HERE to get the tune in its full, FREE glory!
This is a GREAT idea!
It's been announced that U2 will debut their new single Invisible during a Super Bowl ad!
The commercial is sponsored by Bono’s foundation Red, as well as Bank of America who is donating $1 to the Global Fund for each iTunes download within 24 hours.
And that’s not the best news!
This single will be FREE!
The fundraiser has several focuses, but one is ending mother-to-child HIV transmission, and believe it or not, they say this can be done by next year, if they get the monies for it!
New music and you’re helping cure a disease? Count us in!
Bono talked about this “game changing influence,” and their partnership, which you can ch-ch-check out
The Queen has been dethroned!
Forbes just published another one of their power lists and the results are actually quite shocking!
They compiled 2014's most influential celebrities, but, unlike last year, they didn't put Oprah Winfrey at number one!
She was tops in 2K13, but this year the crown goes to Lincoln director Steven Spielberg!
We can't believe this is happening at the same time as her Oscar snub, too!
Aww!! Sadzies times two!!!
Forbes' explained themselves:
Uh oh! Looks like someone's out to get Bono!
And that someone is Amy Poehler's funny man boyfriend, Nick Kroll!
After Amy shocked the crowd with a Bono makeout-fest when she won for Best Actress in a TV Comedy at the Golden Globes, Nick took to his Twitter to issue an ominous warning to the U2 frontman!
So happy to see this!
U2 wins the Golden Globe for Best Original Song!
Bono and the boys wrote Ordinary Love for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the biopic about the life of Nelson Mandela. They of course talked about Mr. Mandela in their acceptance speech, explaining how their own relationship with the late leader influenced the song.
They also gave some love to Coldplay's Chris Martin, who apparently helped them write this tune!
The other nominees in the category were Let It Go, from Frozen, Atlas, from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Please Mr. Kennedy, from Inside Llewyn Davis, and Sweeter Than Fiction, from One Chance.
We lurvz us some Brad Pitt and Bono!!! And we're not alone…
Evidently the Church of Scientology were big fans of these big names too and reportedly tried to recruit BOTH of them to join the religion back in the day!
And they came pretty darn close too!
Brad studied Scientology in the early '90s while dating actress and long-time follower of the Church, Juliette Lewis. At that time, Pitt was involved in the "Purification Rundown" to try and kick a drug habit - a program Juliette claimed helped her overcome her own addictions.
It didn't take long for Brad to realize the religion (or Juliette) wasn't for him, but according to the niece of Church leader David Miscavige, the organization was determined to make him a member!
Jenna Miscavige Hill, who escaped from Scientology herself after 21 years inside, is now detailing what she says were plans drawn up by the Church to enlist Pitt and U2 frontman Bono! She says when it comes to recruiting new celebrity members, it's all about name recognition. Jenna explained:
