I'm hoping this is all made up gossip. If so, Bono should be pleased to be "relevant" again.  :P

I don't like how Eve sounds in the Independent piece. So If the Herald and Independent are unreliable, that's fine w/ me.  :)

“And they’re like, ‘When’s that audition and how did you do? And what movie are you going to do next?’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, stop calling me, you’re obsessed with me.”

^That quote from Eve bothers me. I hope she told her parents that they were annoying her before she told the press. Also, what parent isn't curious about their daughter and what she's doing while she's away from them? I think she needs to cut them some slack...

ungrateful. I don't like to think of Bono as a dad. (although it's probably the most important role to his own life) I love thinking about him as a rock star, band mate, humanitarian, inspiration and even loving husband to his great equal, Ali.

Maybe one day if she becomes a parent she will see why Bono calls her so often.  It doesn't matter how old a child gets, their loving parents will always worry about them.  I'm 48 and my mother calls me just about every day, I am 3000 miles away.  I guess it's normal for Eve to get annoyed being she is only 21 and trying to be independent, but that quote to the press seems a little bratty.
OK let's drop the Dad role and start with the Rock Star again !

I have helicopter parents and it sucks. I'm 37 and my mom called me when my fiance and I were in the process of buying a house, and she cried on the phone while I was at work, telling me I was making the biggest mistake of my life financially and that she cant believe I did it without their help and blah blah blah.

She never trusts me and she always tells me I'm making mistakes. She is the reason I didnt go to grad school and that I spent 3 years of college majoring in Elementary Education before I, who was paying for college, decided to ignore her and major in English. But had I majored in English in the first place, I could have done so much more with my education. But she's never believed in me, never supported my writing, and it's frustrating as all hell.

Parents need to let go and let their children be who they are. Even Bono. Sorry.

They f*** you up, your mum and dad.   
    They may not mean to, but they do.   
They fill you with the faults they had
    And add some extra, just for you.


But they were f***** up in their turn
    By fools in old-style hats and coats,   
Who half the time were soppy-stern
    And half at one another’s throats.


Man hands on misery to man.
    It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
    And don’t have any kids yourself.

LOL!!! OMG. That poem is so me! :) I'm not having any kids because I dont want to be a pain in the ass to someone else. (Well that is not the only reason. But it's definitely one of them.)

Thank you for speaking up. My mother who is from the Emerald Isle is exactly the same.

The young lady in the article is just trying to achieve independence. They should let her go...
