Sunday, bloody fookin’ Sunday: C’mon, Bono, even after this you can still look us in the face, right?

“Breaking all the rules,” indeed: last night in Los Angeles U2 rubbed shoulders with a creative braintrust that included visionary rockers Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato, cementing the Irish band’s reputation as bridge-builders and generation-bridgers. Or something like that.
As Rolling Stone reports, U2’s Bono and the Edge were on hand to accept their iHeartRadio Innovator Award for doing something or other. After Pharrell Williams asserted the band was breaking all kindsa rules and handed them their trophy, Bono sagely observed, “Innovation, I think it’s something about searching out the future before it’s arrived. [It’s] making ‘what might be’ the ‘what is.'”
In the audience, and prominently featured in photos cheering for his sonic soul brothers: Justin Bieber. Onstage to perform during the ceremony, and earnestly showing off her new line of lip gloss: Demi Lovato. Clearly, a night for rock ‘n’ roll!
