Justin Bieber has done his fair share of annoying fans in the past few months, what his late arrival at concerts combined with a whole host of other controversial antics. Fellow singer Jon Bon Jovi says it’s time for the X Factor mentor to grow up and treat his fans right…or risk becoming irrelevant as a musician.
Jon Bon Jovi is not pleased with Justin Bieber, as he made clear during a recent interview. According to Bon Jovi, the Biebs is definitely not the first teen idol to arrive late at concerts, nor will be be the last. The rocker explained that every generation of musicians includes at least one or two stars that make a habit of showing up well after their audiences.
But while it’s a persistent problem in the music industry, Bon Jovi insists that it doesn’t need to be…and that musicians pursuing this type of approach to their careers really don’t deserve the support they receive from their dedicated fans. “They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives.”
And in case Justin Bieber didn’t get the message loud and clear from the first part of Jon Bon Jovi’s interview, the singer decided to make it a bit more explicit. He explained that the Biebs would have been able to get away with being late once or twice, but that, at this point, he’s really crossed the line. And then, Bon Jovi ended the rant with the following little gem: “You’re an a**hole. Go to f***in’ work!”
