U2’s Bono Said Something Really Anitquated About Men And Women In Music

U2 frontman Bono recently made some pretty fragile comments about what he believes is now the “girly” state of music, and how “young male anger” is only found in hip-hop now.

According to a report, he made the comments in an interview with Rolling Stone after he was asked if he believed that a rock and roll revolution was round the corner.

He replied: “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.

“When I was 16, I had a lot of anger in me. You need to find a place for it and for guitars, whether it is with a drum machine – I don’t care.

“The moment something becomes preserved, it is fucking over. You might as well put it in formaldehyde.”

While he didn’t expound on what he meant about which genre got “girly”, the Internet was ofcourse quick to call him out for his unsolicited opinion:

The singer-environmental activist might not have considered that there are a variety of healthy ways for young men to express their “anger” or you know, they might not be as angry was they were during Bono’s time because now people are more welcoming of them expressing their femininity.

Only time will tell thought if 2018 is truly a #BonoIsOver party.
