A Jon Bon Jovi Christmas + the Washington Post interview

JBJ just dropped a holiday EP, A Jon Bon Jovi Christmas, which features three tracks:
  1. Christmas All Over Again - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers cover
  2. If I Get Home on Christmas Day - Elvis Presley cover
  3. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl cover

"Fairytale of New York" is actually one of my favourite Christmas songs, but the original version by The Pogues contains some pretty controversial lyrics so I did wonder if Jon was going to:
  1. change the lyrics to the offending verse
  2. skip the offending verse entirely
  3. go all out calling someone an "old slut on junk" and words of that nature
Unsurprisingly, he did not go with C. 😆 (He chose A.)

Jon also did an IG Live interview with Geoff Edgers from The Washington Post, which has been described as awkward. And frankly, it is. But I thought there were some cool moments too, like when they discussed the evolution of Jon's social consciousness, and whether or not he worries about alienating fans. Besides, awkward video meets are the epitome of 2020, aren't they? 😜

You can watch the interview on The Washington Post's Instagram:
