A week late but like most U2 albums, worth the wait – U2log podcast episode 3 is ready and waiting for you to come and say hello. It’s all Magnificent, all the time. We also stop in with George Clooney and The Edge in Malibu.
Here’s the full 38 minute interview that Bono did with George Clooney for the Time 100/AC360 Special: The World’s Most Influential People. In between some frankly eye-roll-worthy bits of mutual [ comedy pause ] admiration, there’s good stuff about Clooney’s work in Darfur and Bono’s lasting influence on celebrity do-good-ery in the 00’s.
Time Magazine has also published a piece on Clooney written by Bono in which he states:
“George Clooney is a dangerous man. He needs to be watched… to be monitored… He’s a new kind of American radical… a post-’60s, post-obvious, post-postmodern radical, not the left-leaning Hollywood bleeding-heart do-gooder that many think. Oh, no…”
He had nipples on his batsuit, but.
Ladies… hold on to your
knickers hats. It’s Bono vs The Clooney on CNN next week. Tune in to hear Bono ask: “You recently slept with someone that I have a crush on … tell me about that?”
Clooney is being honored by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people. Time asked Bono to write the profile, and CNN shot the interview for a Time 100/Anderson Cooper 360’ Special titled “The World’s Most Influential People.” It will air on CNN on May 1 at 11:00 p.m. ET.
