article imageOp-Ed: Bon Jovi death hoax is bad medicine

By Paul Bright     Dec 20, 2011 in Entertainment
Bon Jovi was victim to another death hoax, joining Bill Cosby, Bob Saget and Justin Bieber among other famous victims. This is bad medicine.
It was reported that Jon Bon Jovi, lead singer of the rock band Bon Jovi, had died. Since no major news aggregates reported this, it was quickly revealed to be another death hoax.
I can’t speak for Bon Jovi personally, but I do like his music. I still listen to glam rock 80s music to lift my spirits. You can criticize that if you want but it’s my life and I can listen to whatever I please. First of all, Jon Bon Jovi would never die of a heart attack. He would rather go down in a blaze of glory, like in a stunt car accident or skydiving. If it was a heart attack, it wouldn’t be from Bon Jovi’s lifestyle. He lives a pretty clean life, so we’d have to chalk it up to bad medicine.
Bon Jovi still has millions of fans, like me. Any news of him dying would first be reported by one of us so we could start a vigil in his honor. Surely we would try to keep the faith and hope that Bon Jovi was doing better than living on a prayer. Like other celebrities that died too soon, the legacy of Bon Jovi is wanted dead or alive-preferably alive. Since Bon Jovi doesn’t look like he’s aged in the last 20 years, I have a feeling he will never say goodbye.
And if he did die, we know that Bon Jovi would go to heaven because he’s a professed Christian. Heaven is home to us always, and who says you can’t go home?
I think the best part about this hoax was how Mr. Bon Jovi responded to it. He showed a picture of himself holding up a sign saying that New Jersey looks a lot like heaven, complete with a current date. Mr. Bon Jovi, I appreciate your humility and sense of humor. I wish you would lay your hands on me and give me the same because I’m not sure that I would respond to a death hoax in the same manner. Thank you for loving me and other fans through this debacle. I’ll be there for you if you need any more support. Have a nice day.
