December 28, 2011-
Rocker and very much alive Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi shows his fans that once again that he is alive and well and not just another pretty face with an awesome voice and body as he enjoys his holiday vacation lounging on the beach reading the new Bill Clinton book.
Hollywood Gossip reported that Jon Bon Jovi while on a family Christmas vacation helped to clear up the horrible rumors that he had died that were started by a Pennsylvania musician by the name of Jeffrey Goho.
Asbury Park Press claims that Goho has revealed that he started the fake Twitter account with the full intention of starting the Jon Bon Jovi death hoax in the middle of December 2011.
Goho tweeted that the “I’ll Be There For You” singer had died in his home town of New Jersey. Since then Goho claims he has gotten “a lot of backlash from it.”
Goho Explains his reasoning behind the hoax:
“All I heard was ‘Bon Jovi this,’ ‘Bon Jovi opening a restaurant,’ the Advil commercial. It was like [Bon Jovi] was a household name due to his music, not his busissiness.”
Goho continued by saying “long story short [my band and I] got so worked up on the conversation. I just took the liberty and started (the rumor), because I was so irritated.”
Nina A of Cincinnati stated “Sounds like Bon Jovi envy to me,whatever, how terrible to start this kind of rumor. He should be sued I think.”
The 30-year-old, Goho revealed less than 24-hours after his tweet, his Twitter was flooded with hate mail from around the world.
“I’m not proud of this,” he said.
“Someone was craving their 15 minutes of Lame Fame” said Sissy P.
“No, no, no, I didn’t d this as a business endeavor. As stupid as it sounds, I was just irritated. It was wrong to do and I about hurt myself. Ultimately, the more I thought I gave it to it, I realized that all his (Jon Bon Jovi) business endeavors, have actively made the tri-state prosper, hence more musicians have more available places to go,more people to play to, and I was quite wrong.”
Wrong, yes very much so, and most Bon Jovi fans are still very angry over the death hoax, despite Goho’s confession and admittance that he was wrong, they believe he was in fact only after publicity.
As for Jon he laughs it all off, knowing the multi millions of fans that he has rocked over the years have his back completely, with most still flocking to theaters this December to see him co star in the film ‘New Year’s Eve.’
