U2 frontman Bono, in a new interview with India-based publisher, Rolling Stone India revealed some heavy praise for pop superstar Billie Ellish. Here, Bono reveals how he’s grateful that new artists today are able to break out without having to play a single show. Bono unloaded on terrible U2 album the other day: ‘i’m so sorry’.
Bono told the publication: “I mean some of them [new artists] are incredible. When you think about Billie Eilish and what she’s done with her brother Finneas [O’Connel] and they are just working at home and next thing you know, it’s world-class. But she’s cleverly, ouch, trying to figure out live… She knows what she’s doing. U2 singer Bono recently apologized for this horrible sexist remark.
Bono would continue, saying: “You can’t just be a creature of recording and I think to be real like Chance The Rapper or Billie, you have to get out there. You see if people really have the thing, whatever the thing is, and that’s where we find out live. You can’t hide, and the other thing is the top 10 memories people will have in their life often include a concert. Because I think there’s something about a communal experience, above a movie. Movies don’t turn up in people’s top 10 memories. I don’t know why. Because I think it’s the way the brain receives it. This is going to be our last show in Mumbai. We have no plans to do any more shows after that. So you know, it’s going to be a big moment. Bono called this U2 bandmate a ‘bad man’ in this recent awful video.
