« on: May 15, 2017, 03:50:52 PM »
What are in your opinion U2's "Jump the Shark" Moments?
Basically where they went off the deep end in the worst ways possible.

-Bad PR moves
-Weird songs/Collaboration
-Fashion nightmares
-Cringeworthy moments for you as a fan

1. Lena Dunham appearing on screen during Ultraviolet Friday

2. Bono in guyliner performing Boots at the 2009 Grammys

Like I said, If I have to wear a Lena Dunham mask, I will organize a Beatles style fire pit. I will Periscope it and then play it on infinite loop.

Then, I'll take the ashes and scatter them on a river in India. 30 years of fandom will end that day.

they've got plenty, but that mask isn't one of them. i don't get why people hated that so much. it never struck me as awkward.

guyliner/RS cover photo

Lena Dunham being seen as a feminist icon she assumes everyone sees her as.
