Bon Jovi "bored" of being rock star

Jon Bon Jovi has admitted that he is "bored to tears" of being a rock star, adding that he also feels he drinks too much and is overweight.

The singer, famous for fronting Bon Jovi with such stadium-rock hits as 'Livin' On A Prayer', was talking to The Observer when he made the comments.

"I'm vain in as much as I think I'm terribly out of shape right now. If you want to be perfectly honest, I'm 10lb overweight and I'm drinking too much and I'm bored to tears," he told the paper in an interview to promote his group's new 'Greatest Hits' collection.

The singer added that despite these issues, he’s fairly relaxed about the ageing process, saying: "At 48, I look OK. But you know … I'm coming to real good terms with getting older."
