    Default Poverty campaigner Bono piles on the pounds after Christmas

    As an ardent campaigner against third world poverty, Bono is on a mission to feed the world. Starting, it seems, with himself.


    The 47-year-old U2 frontman arrived at the Elysée Palace hotel in Paris for a meeting about African development, showing off a newly rounded physique. Scroll down for more...

    Letting it all hang out: Wearing a dark suit and gold tie, Bono left his shirt hanging loose - a tactic used by men everywhere to disguise a protruding pot belly


    Wearing a dark suit and gold tie, the usually immaculate singer left his shirt hanging loose - a tactic used by men everywhere to disguise a protruding pot belly.
    Even the beginnings of a goatee beard could not disguise his jowly neckline and padded face.
    Ironically, Bono was in Paris on business - having arranged a conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy to discuss Third World aid improvement and poverty issues.
    "Bono has always been pretty rakish and chiselled," said an onlooker. "But when he arrived at the press conference it was immediately clear he had put on a few pounds.
    "He may have had two Christmas number ones about feeding the world but it looks like Bono was the best fed person over the festive period."
    The Irish star, who was instrumental in the 1984 and 2004 Band Aid tracks which helped raise millions of pounds for African causes, is a global campaigner for the underprivileged.
    He has also been instrumental in the Drop The Debt campaign, which wiped out vast sums of international debt owed by Third World governments.
    The Oscar-winning musician - real name Paul Hewson - has been accused of hypocrisy, however, after it was revealed that he has established a private equity fund to invest more than £1billion in a series of money-making ventures.
    He also has a staggering property portfolio which includes a villa in the South of France, a lavish Italian-style palazzo overlooking the sea near Dublin and a £15million penthouse in New York.

    I read somewhere that he's about 5'6. He's just a little guy

    Atleast he has the balls to wear the obvious height enhancers, not like Cruise who wears the 8 inch lifts hidden inside his shoes

    He really does not care about his looks any longer.
    The glasses need to go.

    Well I have to say that this is refreshing, to see a male celebrity's weight chronicled and critiqued.

    Wow, what a hypocrite! Stuff your face and have tons and tons of money lavishly spent on yourself, and then campaign like the almighty preaching governments to forgive debt and feed the poor and hungry!

    That's really the only reason I said anything about him-- tired of it always being the women who get the sh*t.

    Fucking hell, what did he eat over Christmas, the whole turkey AND all 30 guests?

    And yeah, being obese hardly inspires people to take you seriously when talking about world hunger. Oink oink, Bono!

    you people are cruel....would you rather him starve himself ala Jolie? I think THAT would be more of a slap in the face to the third world. Plus , weight gain can be the result of a lot of different things , not necessarily stuffing face all the time. Give the guy a break.

    Eh he's 47, not exactly an athlete ever, has a build that looks like it's very easy to put on weight, and has other stuff to do besides being a gym bunny. Good for him.
