Is Bon Jovi dead?

 

 

Facebook is busy with nonstop activity on Monday night. People wanted to mourn the death of the New Jersey rock star Jon Bon Jovi. Is there truth to this?

The Los Angeles Times reported that a site called dailynewbloginternational had posted the bulletin that Bon Jovi had died in his home state during a world tour.

“It’s an explosive piece of news, all right, except for one detail: it was an utter hoax. Bon Jovi, 49, is alive and well. He appeared in concert Monday night in New Jersey right on schedule. The good-humored pop star even went so far as to hold up a sign before the show saying: “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey.”

The Los Angeles Times was quick to notice the similarity between this story and another one. “The story had changed some words and details, falsely reporting that Bon Jovi died in New Jersey during a world tour,” The Los Angeles Times noted. “But some of the sentences appeared to have been copied from the Times story on (Michael) Jackson’s death that ran on L.A. Now after he was stricken at his Holmby Hills mansion.” ”
