fortheloveofthekillers:

Here are some great Bono comments on U2 haters from the past week.

Bono’s hater deflection strategy, it appears, is to answer with:

Feigned ignorance – “If people have a problem with the way we released the album, wouldn’t I have read something about it online?”

Rebellion – “That was kind of why you got into a band, to stir things up and annoy people. That’s the whole punk rock thing…the only thing that could have gone wrong would have been being ignored.”

Humble brags – “I just heard that 38 million people have listened to Songs of Innocence in the last 7 days, which is more people than anyone ever listened to The Joshua Tree. Now that doesn’t mean they’ve all loved it, but they’ve listened to it.”

Repudiation – “You know what it’s like in the blogosphere. The same people who used to write on toilet walls…these are the people who are now on the blogosphere. There’s a lot of haters, and they can try and drown out the lovers, but they’re not going to.”

Self-deprecation – “We get people might want to delete it, but believe me, no one has deleted more U2 songs over the last five years than U2.”

Resilience – “The people who are wincing and crying and getting upset, it’s kind of exciting…we don’t want our music to be boring.”

Found this on another social site. I remember as a kid a little puppet mouse on Ed Sullivan Show. Can anyone shed light on this photo shopped pic?

Was the puppet called Topo Gigio?
