Bono likes The Weeknd, and Edge likes Stay by Rihanna

Personally, I think both The Weeknd and Rihanna are scourges on music. Hard to hear this from my favourite band. Probably not a good sign for where they are in terms of writing style. So cringeworthy. At least Tame Impala, Hozier, and Kendrick Lamar were cited as well.

Rihanna is very talented - not my cuppa tea - but still, I get it.

I could see the argument for her being a talented entertainer. Edge feels that Stay is an incredible song :/

I really don't like Rhianna, but I'll give her where it's due that Stay is a good song for what it is, a very emotional ballad type piece.

30 Seconds to Mars did a fantastic cover that shows the quality that the song does possess.

I really think they're just kissing ass, but I could be wrong.

Ha ha, that was definitely up there as one of the strangest Bono moments when he was mock-singing the Bee Gees!

You know, there's a thing in show business (and in most businesses) called "schmoozing." It's not necessary to read too deeply into Bono and Edge's statements at this awards show. Maybe they were sincere, or maybe they walked away laughing up their sleeves. We'll probably never know, and that's fine.

No, I think they really like the stuff they mentioned. They have a broad appreciation of music. Check out The Edge's Spotify playlist from the end of last year...it's a mix of contemporary pop, alternative, and old classics.

She does have one great guitarist as her musical coordinator in Nuno, perhaps that is the Edges draw!

U2 will always be my favorite, but I really like The Weeknd.

I don't have clue who The Weeknd are but I can imagine U2 doing a future cover of Rihanna's b**** Better Have My Money! ;D
