I like Bono, and I like U2, but I do wish he'd dial back the preaching about world issues by about 25% at his shows. It was kind of irritating to want to rock out and have to sit through a 10 minute piece on Burma.
I saw him on Jonathan Ross the other day, and he did admit that he's easy to take shots at because he can be "annoying." It's nice to see him have a sense of humor about the whole thing.
I'm torn about people like Bono and Angelina Jolie. I admire that they're using their celebrity for something substantial, but I also get tired of hearing about it. They're entertainers, so it would be lovely if they would just entertain every once in a while instead of "raising awareness" 24/7.
