Jon is 51. He has no more patience for these shenanigans.

Speaking of Justin Bieber, elder statesman of rock Jon Bon Jovi had some choice words for the YouTube star, calling him an "a--hole" for going onstage two hours late in London in March. Jon gives arena concerts for $12 tickets, so he knows what he's talking about.

“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new," Bon Jovi told the U.K.'s Standard about Bieber making the audience wait. “They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives." Sick burn. But wait, there's more.

“Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an a--hole. Go to f---in’ work!”

Well, maybe Jon should have signed one of Bieber's party waivers. Then he would have toed the Belieber line that the whole thing was due to technical issues, and only involved a 40-minute wait. Do we get sued for $5 million for that?
