Jon Bon Jovi has always done his best to keep “the trappings of rock stardom” separate from his home life.
The It’s My Life hitmaker has insisted he leads a relatively normal existence off stage, despite being one of the richest rockstars on the planet.
And the rocker – who has four children with his wife Dorothea – told Britain’s The Guardian newspaper that for some time “my younger kids weren’t quite sure what I do.”
“My life is much more normal than one would imagine,” he smiled. “There are no platinum records hanging anywhere in my house. The trappings of rock stardom were never a part of my home.”
The Livin’ On A Prayer singer also revealed that he will never let politics come between him and his bandmates or his fans.
“There are men on my stage who see things differently, but I don’t let our differences come between us. I never wanted to become a captive to the stage. How I live my life’s up to me,” he insisted.
Jovi performed a cover of The Beatles’ Here Comes The Sun at U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration last week, and admitted: “I never felt like I needed to sing a song more. It was cathartic.”
And when quizzed on whether he would allow Donald Trump to use his music in his campaigns, the Story of Love singer sighed: “No! No no no! On every issue we wholeheartedly disagree, from how he handled the Covid crisis to immigration to the Paris accord ” everything! No! No!”
