Will wait for news story so she doesn't think it's another of my conspiracies
NJ 101.5, which is scheduled to hold a parade and celebration for 2,900 of NJ's National Guard soldiers returning from Iraq on June 12, is calling for a boycott of Jon Bon Jovi.
The rocker, who rocked his home state last night for an exclusive fundraiser concert for the current NJ Governor's re-election campaign, declined to perform at the parade for the veterans due to a recording schedule conflict. The declined offer, coupled with the support of the unpopular governor, sparked the boycott.
NJ's current governor, Jon Corzine, is the Democratic incumbent for November's re-election bid. Corzine, a former executive with Goldman Sachs, is a multi-millionaire who used a good portion of his own personal wealth to win the governor's seat 4 years ago. Corzine has an approval rating in the state nearly equivalent to George W. Bush (about 20%). Vice President Joe Biden also spoke on Tuesday on behalf of Corzine, stating that his and "Barack's mission is to get Jon Corzine re-elected."
Jon Bon Jovi is saddling up his steel horse in an attempt to help out his old buddy Hilary Clinton.It’s alleged that Hilary Clinton amassed a debt of around $13.1 million in her unsuccessful attempt at becoming US President, of which she still owes $6.3 million and that’s where Jon Bon Jovi comes in.
The Bon Jovi frontman is to play a very intimate show at Town Hall on January 15th to help Clinton pay off some of those pesky lone-shark. With tickets ranging up to $1,000, Jon Bon’s help is sure to be very much appreciated

IMHO, this absolutely backs up what I already said. He has a scheduling conflict (when you are due in studio to record, you are talking 10's of thousands to reschedule.). He also supports a politician who is unpopular.
This is absolute propaganda, being used against the politician in question. Bon Jovi is just being used as bait.

Are you really surprised? REALLY??? Celebrities are and always have been worried about prestige and keeping their money and hobnobbing with the wealthy elite. No matter how well they play the bleeding heart...That's why they are good at what they do, they can convince people they really care when they just want to look good and win our appreciation and sell records. That much was evident to me when Metallica sued nabster...they are all greedy, selfish celebrities...period. What's worse is when they try to win our sympathy when they are in rehab and have their so called"Problems" which doesn't win my sympathy at all, hey at least they have the money to make their problems go away!
