Remember a couple of years ago when a U2 album that you absolutely did NOT want suddenly appeared on your iTunes?
Yeah, it was a pretty #ty time that we had all forgotten about as we tried desperately to erase it from our memories, but it turns out that U2 were gearing up to release another album which could have led to the same treatment. Fortunately though, we’ve got an unlikely saviour that means that this will – at the very least – be delayed by a fair few months. And that man is Donald Trump. The Edge explained the band’s decision to delay the release of their new album because of Donald Trump in a very lengthy statement that you can read below. It doesn’t really make any sense and pretty much implies that their music is the most important in the world:
I thought artists were meant to become less pretentious as they grew older, but I guess when you’re U2 things probably work the other way round. I mean he’s still calling himself The Edge after all these years so why not? Anyway the important thing to not lose sight of is that there won’t be any unwanted U2 albums appearing on our iPhones any time soon, so for that at least I’ve got to say thanks to Donald Trump. Thanks man.

I used words like "matter", substitute any word that triggers you if it makes you feel like you matter. Do you listen to U2?
Bono becomes the first man to win Woman of the Year award
When Glamour Magazine announced the Irish singer would be receiving an award at the annual event earlier this month, they admitted how in previous years they’d deliberately avoided including men. But in 2016, the magazine declared “when a major male rock star who could do anything at all with his life decides to focus on the rights of women and girls worldwide — well, all that’s worth celebrating. We’re proud to name that rock star, Bono, our first Man of the Year,” the statement read.
