THISWEEKWE’RE UNFRIENDING . . . BONO
If we were ever invited round to Bono’s Killiney gaff for dinner, we now have a debate locked and loaded for him. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone , he said: “I think music has gotten very girly. And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment – and that’s not good.”
Girly. It’s hard to know what his definition of girly is. Is it sensitivity? Is it synths? Is it wearing high heels? But if he’s worried about girliness stepping in and taking the place of the angry, male voice in the charts, I suggest he prepares himself for a new type of rage. The fearless and boundless rage of girls and women that are finally having their say in a society that was built to silence them. Take that, Bono.
