Jon Bon Jovi “furious” with Forbes: Kicks up “huge fuss”
HollywoodNews.com: Rocker Jon Bon Jovi was furious he failed to make two of the famed Forbes lists for musicians, according to a U.S report.
The Bon Jovi star was first left off the ‘Forbes Power 100 list’ of the world’s most powerful celebrities – lead by Oprah Winfrey – in June.
Then in July he was unimpressed when he failed to make it into the Forbes Musicians’ Rich List – topped by U2.
“Jon kicked up a huge fuss and got his people to complain,” an insider told the New York Post.
“He couldn’t understand why he didn’t make the musicians list since Bon Jovi has been touring non-stop since February. Their contemporaries U2 and Bruce Springsteen were on the list. Even Britney Spears was No. 5, and she hasn’t done anything this year.”
A representative for Bon Jovi denied he had ever complained about his omissions.
“That’s just so ridiculous. Last year, the band took an eight-month break from touring, so there was no expectation that they would rank on this year’s list. Next year, different story: their current tour is No. 1 in North America right now and No. 2 worldwide.”
