U2 Singer Bono Humiliated By Daughter


Eve Hewson has just seemingly disrespected her father. Okay, maybe it’s not that deep, but she did turn down singing lessons from the famous rocker.

The reason for why she was gearing up for any sort of singing is because the actress is playing the lead role in a musical comedy-drama film, written and directed by John Carney. As the tale of the film goes, we see it set in Dublin as we follow single mother, Flora (Hewson) as she attempts to connect with her troubled teenage son Max (Orén Kinlan) through music.

Flora’s introduction to singing and songwriting is helped along by LA-based online guitar teacher Jeff (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who helps fuel her confidence.

Per Variety via NME, they asked about her singing scenes and if at all she had any fear about them, she said: “It was probably my biggest fear I’ve ever had, and it ended up being something I’m really proud of.”

Of course, then she was asked about her U2 father: “I’ve learned so much from him, in terms of life presence, stage presence. But I didn’t ask him for help. He offered, and I was like, ‘No thank you.’ He’s, like, a really good singer so I was like, ‘No, no, no.’ I grew up musical, so it was kind of natural for me. Being on stage, being the front person, I was kind of into it. I texted him [Bono] and I said, ‘I see why you like this, this is kind of fun.’”

Flora And Son premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival on January 22. After the film met a positive reception, Apple TV+ is reported (via Deadline) to have bought the streaming rights for “just under” $20million (£16.2million).

Circling back to Bono, it looks like fans can expect a new compilation ‘Songs Of Surrender’ – an album of “reimagined and re-recorded” songs from their back catalogue. The album is set to be released on March 17.
