Looks like Paul McCartney“s title as world”s richest entertainer is safe … “cause Bono says his stake in Facebook will NOT push him into the number one spot.
Bono was in D.C. this morning to attend a fundraiser for President Obama … when a Washington Times photog asked about reports that the U2 frontman”s $90 million investment into Mark Zuckerberg”s social network will be worth $1.5 billion by the end of the day … making him the richest rocker on Earth.
FYI — It”s been widely reported that Bono”s investment company, Elevation Partners, bought up 2.3% of the company in 2009.
But Bono didn”t appear too stoked about it … in fact, he cast doubt on the entire story.
That … or maybe he”s just trying to be modest.
Thanks to The Washington Times for the clip.
