Bon Jovi Not Happy With Forbes Top Celebrity Lists

By Denise Baptiste

Jon Bon Jovi, the famous American rocker is furious for not being listed in Forbes two top celebrity lists. He was not listed this year in either 'Power 100" list of the world"s most powerful celebrities or 'Musicians" Rich List."

Bon Jovi, the power of music was not seen in the 'Musicians' Rich List. The list was topped by rival rockers U2, with 130 million dollars to their credit, from the worldwide tour. Where as the 'Power 100' list had Oprah Winfrey as the winner.

A source said, “Jon kicked up a huge fuss and got his people to complain. He couldn"t understand why he didn"t make the musicians list since Bon Jovi has been touring nonstop since February. Their contemporaries U2 and Bruce Springsteen were on the list. Even Britney Spears was No. 5, and she hasn't done anything this year."

When asked Forbes, they said that Bon Jovi's people expressed their complain on the list. “Forbes estimated each act"s earnings between June 2009 and June 2010 and included revenue streams such as concert dates, merchandise sales, licensing fees, music sales, and publishing royalties. Bon Jovi didn"t tour for eight of those months," they said.

Although Jon was not there to respond to this issue, his representative said, “That's ridiculous. Last year, the band took an eight-month break from touring, so there was no expectation that they would rank on this year's list."
