Most people that have met him still contend his height to be between 5″5 – 5″7 but at the end of the day Bono should just get over it “For He Is Bono!!!”

    it’s only a lift when you are trying to hide it. he’s clearly not trying to hide it. few celebrities are more self-effacing than Bono.

    See Dom, he's a midget!

    Self effacing? Bono? I'm speechless.

    Yea the American or well, the media, in general is just biased on who they scrutinize for example Pacquiao who was mentioned in the media for being 5’6 1/2
    Well bono is 5’6 right? Why don’t they fucking scrutinize him? Even with the boots??
    Unbelievable, sometimes you ought to be really cheeky to the media to get the right gripe and cover the right gripe
