Hands off Bon Jovi’s Jersey

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY/ THURSDAY EXTRA -

Jon Bon Jovi (pic­tured) has ac­cused the pro­duc­ers of US re­al­ity TV show Jersey Shore of mis­rep­re­sent­ing his home state. The Bon Jovi front­man from New Jersey is no fan of the fly-on-the-wall show, which films lo­cals booz­ing in the streets and caus­ing fights. ‘‘It’s not my Jersey shore,’’ Bon Jovi says. ‘‘I was there way be­fore they were. We used to go down to the board­walk all the time when we were kids. That was a cool place. Peo­ple from New Jersey know that’s not what it’s like. I more re­sent that those shows cre­ate celebri­ties, that’s bad . . . it’s re­ally sad.’’
