Bono will kiss the *** of any political leader that will let him speak in the spotlight. Also seeing how Bono is rich how much money does he donate?? Becuase i certainly dont remember him taking money from his own wallet and donating it like most stars do. Bono is a modern day mother theresa thats for sure.
A quick search found this:
$1000000 personally + $5000000 from the rest of the group and manager
Of course, he also donates a hell of a lot of time trying to convince governments (who have the power to change things) to give more aid to undeveloped nations.
That doesn't mean we should look up to him, but we shouldn't crap all over him without knowing what we're talking about, right?
