CHEER UP, MISERY GUTS: Well, we do agree with Bono up to a point on this one: rock stars should really stop complaining about how hard their lives are:

"I do hate whingeing rock stars. The life that people have given us is amazing. We don't have the same worries other people do, like how to pay the bills. In return we only have to do one thing. The deal is, don't be crap - that's all anyone's asked of us."

It's good advice - although somewhat undermined by Bono using his next breath to praise the "poetic and pop" Robbie Williams, a man who has elevated the pity-me school of pop to such a level it could sustain its own department at Cambridge University.
