Jon Bon Jovi recently got talking about fame and reality TV with Australia’s The Sunday Project (via Entertainment Tonight). And let’s just say Jon would rather wake up one morning with his hair in a feathered perm full of mousse and frosty box highlights than spend 60 seconds of his life watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Jon admitted that he’s not a fan of today’s famous-for-no-apparent-reason culture.
“I think it’s horrific that we live in that world and I can tell you I’ve never given 60 seconds of my life, ever, to one of those Housewives of Blah Blah and Kardashians. I don’t know their names, I’ve never watched 60 seconds of the show, it’s not for me. What’s gonna be in your autobiography? ‘I made a porno and guess what, I got famous.’ Fuck, sorry, I’ll pass. Go and write a book, paint a painting, act, study, sing, play write. Fame is a byproduct of writing a good song.”
First of all, be more specific, Jon. The Housewives of Bla Bla could literally apply to any series in the Real Housewives franchise, and it actually sounds like one with a really great reunion episode. Second, a talented adult performer makes a porno; Kim Kardashian made a sex tape. But it’s really too bad that Jon Bon Jovi doesn’t realize how much he has in common with Kim. Slippery When Wet is both the name of a Bon Jovi album and the sign they put out whenever Kim gets oiled up for a photo shoot. And I’m willing to bet that if any of Jon Bon Jovi’s middle-ages lady fans ever got their hands on a magic lamp or monkey’s paw, the first thing they’re wishing for is a porno starring Jon and Richie Sambora.
