Bon Jovi rues why he and Tom Cruise have never won awardsJanuary 2nd, 2008 - 6:22 pm ICT by admin
London, Jan 2 (ANI): American singer Jon Bon Jovi has likened himself with Hollywood star Tom Cruise, insisting that both of them are successful in their respective fields, but have never won any awards.
The rocker admitted that despite being successful in his music career, he has never received recognition in any award ceremony - just like the Mission Impossible star.
I am the Elvis Costello of movies and Tom Cruise in my music. Ive been critically acclaimed in most of my TV and film work, but I didnt sell any movie tickets, and with the band, its like Tom Cruise, FemaleFirst quoted Bon Jovi, as saying.
Ive had all the commercial success you could dream of, but hey, the guy still doesnt have an Oscar. What you gonna do, he added.
Recently, the 45-year-old singer revealed that making new albums and touring makes him more content and happy than chart successes.
Bon Jovi said hes aware that the band will never be as popular as they used to be in their 1980s heyday, but added that they do not care as long as they can continue to make a living out of music. (ANI)
