Jon Bon Jovi is no fan of 'Jersey Shore'
Rocker says MTV cast promotes instant fame, misrepresents
Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has taken aim at the producers of "Jersey
Shore," accusing them of promoting instant fame and misrepresenting his home
The Bon Jovi frontman hails from Perth Amboy, N.J., but he is no fan of the
reality show set in his home state. He is adamant that the housemates
featured in the show are not typical New Jersey residents, and he has criticized
the show's producers for contributing to the modern culture of fame.
Bon Jovi tells British magazine OK!, "It's not my Jersey shore. I was there
way before they were. We used to go down to the boardwalk all the time when we
were kids, that was a cool place to go.
People from New Jersey know that's not what it's like. I more resent that
those shows create 'celebrities,' that's bad. Some kid is struggling to write a
song, or to be an actor or write a book, and kids want to get famous to be
famous. I don't like that. It's really sad."
