Bono: U2 album was too clever for fans?

What a prick.

Bono has admitted that he is disappointed with the lack of success for U2's recent album.

No Line On The Horizon was a number one album, but single 'Get On Your Boots' peaked at number 12 in the single charts and 'I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight' only reached number 32.

According to The Mirror, Bono is unhappy that the band didn't "pull off the pop songs".

He explained: "We weren't really in that mindset and we felt that the album was kind of an almost extinct species, and we should approach it in totality and create a mood and a feeling, and a beginning, middle and end."

The frontman added that the record might have been too complex for fans.

"I suppose we've made a work that is a bit challenging for people who have grown up on a diet of popstars," he said.

Maybe it is because you're an overrated band, and people are sick and tired of your duplicity. Prancing around the world telling them to stop using energy that is better utilised in your private jets and elitist buddies' mansions. But no, they have such an inflated view of themselves that the 'fans' must be thick, unable to comprehend the higher power that is Bono.

No you creepy crawly scumbag. You're crap. Fuck off back to your tax haven and stop trying to tell the peasantry how to live. The only fucking reason you have had the attention you have had is because of your elite-agenda worship in the first place.
