Bon Jovi - pretty normal

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.

Bon Jovi performed a cover of The Beatles' Here Comes The Sun at U.S. President Joe Biden's inauguration, 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!"
