Bono: 'My Voice Annoys Me'
1
Rocker Bono is tired of his own voice and rarely listens to U2 songs when they are played on the radio. The Irish star admits he's particularly turned off when he hears songs U2 recorded at the beginning of their career. In a pre-taped interview with U.S. TV host Ellen DeGeneres, which aired on her show on Thursday, Bono says, "I do try to avoid it. If I hear our songs on the radio I tend to turn them down. Not because I don't like them or believe in them. Actually, my voice annoys me. I always think I could have sang it better." "I am sort of a macho, Irish guy and particularly in those '80s songs, I think I sound like a girl." Thanks for the report to ContactMusic.com.

    Just about everyone who sings hates the sound of their own voice. Completely natural.

    I think everyone doesn't like sound of their own voice. He's just being normal.

    I think the conversation went like this. Bono: I don't like my voice. Whenever my band's on the radio, I turn it down. Ellen: Oh, you too? *badumchee*

    Gosh I love this website but I hate when Bono is in the news because it gives everybody else the chance to hate on him. Is there anyone out there, anyone, who actually likes U2 anymore?

    I didn't know that douche glasses while saving Africa went hand in hand with Irish machismo.

    He is full of it... U2 was awesome in the 80s up to the joshua tree album.. And then he became pompus and annoying.
