Jon Bon Jovi has had enough of Justin Bieber’s crap.
If you missed his appearance at the Billboard Music Awards the other night, Bieber was booed by the audience and delivered a childish “I should be taken seriously!” speech to a crowd of legendary artists.
Bieber, who wore sunglasses throughout the ceremony, seemed like a five-year-old throwing a temper tantrum. Which Bon Jovi didn’t hesitate to point out.
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new,” the 51-year-old Bon Jovi told the newspaper during a tour stop in Vienna on the European leg of Bon Jovi’s Because We Can tour.
“They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives—or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives.”…
“Do it once, you can be forgiven,” the “Bad Medicine” singer said. “Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool—you’re an a–hole. Go to f–kin’ work!“
Bieber is king of the entitlement generation that assumes it deserves your respect simply because it exists and does what it wants to do. Enough already.
