Bon Jovi: Sitting on Jon's Face

BEST TITLE EVER!!!  Ah yes many of my Gutter Girl friends would like that.  But a woman actually had Jon's face tattooed on her butt and not she sits on he face....

Why wouldn't she have it tattooed on her Labia Majoria?  I mean the butt seems kind of mean...

For Jon Bon Jovi reaching people is a part of his job. But there must be a point when it comes to the millions of fans he meets on the road where he goes 'okay, alright, that's a little bit crazy'. Like getting a tattoo of Jon on your back?

An English lass named Lucy is one of Bon Jovi's biggest fans. And as you can see in the photo that Triple M's Byron Cooke found on her Twitter account, words are not enough to express her love for the Jov. Instead, she got a pictures of Jon's face inked on her back. If this doesn't faze Jon we'll be well impressed.

"Well I wouldn't have done it," says Jon. "But I can one-up you. I was backstage with the director of the movie Moonlight And Valentino that I did and he brought back his nanny and she says 'I'd like to show you a tattoo'.

"She starts to unbutton her drawers, and on her rear-end was a picture like that and she looked me in the eye and [said] 'I get to sit on your face every night'.

"I went 'Wow, nice to meet ya!' I haven't seen the director either since… there's a restraining order against both of them."

The English aren't the only ones keen to fly the Bon Jovi colours. Judging by our Bon Jovi's Biggest Fans photo gallery the Aussies also have a healthy and very passionate love for the Jov.

Bon Jovi: Bon Jovi Rock Star City

Jon & Russel Crowe together....  OH *swoon*!  I love Russell he's a great actor.  Go watch Gladiator a few times...  GUH!  The 2 of them together.  Sweet Merciful Hey-soos.

Jon Bon Jovi wears Souths jersey
The rocker returned onstage at Star City for an encore sporting a South Sydney Rabbitohs jersey

Star-studded ... Jon Bon Jovi with Russell Crowe at last night's concert.

JON Bon Jovi was the preacher at a rock and roll revival show last night relaunching Star City as one of Sydney's premiere entertainment venues.

With his spirit fingers punching the air, the frontman had the majority of the crowd on their feet for the band's entire 75 minute set - with the only exception being the older members of the celebrity-studded audience who needed to rest their legs.

It was a searing performance which rocked from the moment they took the stage and was greeted by the kind of screaming which would drown out a Justin Bieber crowd.

"This is not TV - get up out of your seats," Bon Jovi demanded, flashing that brilliant white smile.

You Give Love a Bad Name, It's my Life, Keep the Faith, Wanted Dead or Alive, Livin' on a Prayer and Bad Medicine prompted massive shout-a-longs from a crowd who knew every word.

Covers of Pretty Woman and Shout were extra bonuses in the hit-laden set.

Souths owner Russell Crowe pulled off a marketing coup, convincing the US superstar to wear a Rabbitohs jersey for the encore of his gig.

Crowe's Souths chief executive Shane Richardson confirmed that the super group's lead singer had joined the club as an ordinary member on Tuesday.

"Russell you got me to ear your team's jersey," Bon Jovi said, just after closing out the show with his version of Johnny O'Keefe's Shout.

The pressure is now on for a band who commands the world's biggest arenas, to bottle the energy they harnessed during last night's gig and translate that to their three night stand at the Sydney Football Stadium starting tomorrow evening.

Here are some pictures from the event:


Bon Jovi: Obama taps Jon Bon Jovi for new advisory board

By Ed O'Keefe

Looks like all those years of performing for Democratic candidates has paid off: President Obama is tapping rocker Jon Bon Jovi to serve on a new presidential advisory council.

The White House announced Tuesday that Bon Jovi (or is it just Jovi?) will join the new 25-member White House Council for Community Solutions, a panel established to provide advice on "the best ways to mobilize citizens, nonprofits, businesses and government to work more effectively together to solve specific community needs."

The 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act established the panel, which also includes eBay CEO John Donahoe and Starbucks Vice President Paula Boggs and Rockefeller Foundation President Judith Rodin.

Jovi, the formerly big-haired rocker, is a well-known Democratic Party supporter who once made a cameo in support of fictional Democratic presidential candidate Matthew Santos on NBC's "West Wing."

More recently, Bon Jovi performed at Obama's inaugural concert and promoted the Obama administration's United We Serve initiative during his recent world tour.

But, on a serious note, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation has partnered with public and private organizations to help combat homelessness. The efforts have yielded more than 260 units of affordable housing for low income individuals and families, according to his spokeswoman.

Obama has tapped several other celebrities to serve on presidential commissions and councils. Yo-Yo Ma and Sarah Jessica Parker are on the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, for example.

Bonjovi.com has a full write up in case you're like me and don't know who any of these people are.
I've put behind the cut for length.

Bon Jovi: Join Oprah

I must say not a big Oprah fan. She's never been on at a time when I can watch her.

So she's in Australia in a trip funded by the Australian People.  And she's got guests down there like Jay-Z, oooh lots of soccer Mom's know him since he's been on her show before and is married to Beyonce.  I bet they don't know that he was a crack dealer once upon a time....

WTF is Oprah wearing?  Is that like an Orange Ballgown?  The color looks good on her, but a floor length dress in the summer?  I don't think she's in the WTB demographic.

And is Jon the only man on Earth who can rock the white t-shirt with the black vest and still look good, or am I biased? 

And why does it look like the photographer put Vaseline on the lens?  All the pictures have this slightly out of focus quality.

Bon Jovi and Jay-Z were two of the guests on the first Oprah Winfrey Show filmed at the Sydney Opera House this morning (December 14, 2010).

Bon Jovi performed two songs ‘Living On A Prayer’ and ‘Its My Life’ before Jon joined the Big O to talk about his 25 years of touring down under.

Jay-Z talked about his visit to a Sydney boys school this week where he jammed with the students. Oprah went to his show with U2 in Sydney last night.

The first of the Oprah shows also featured Russell Crowe and Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve Irwin.

A second show is being filmed this afternoon. More on that later.

And here are some pictures:
