Being a celebrity, trying to enjoy time as a regular person, is tough. Being invited to a wedding as a guest is a time to share the moment with those getting hitched and have a good time. What you DON’T want is for anyone to put a spotlight on you and take the attention away from the bride and groom.
Take for example, Jon Bon Jovi. Here he is enjoying the reception when all of a sudden the wedding singer starts belting out a Bon Jovi song. Why? You KNOW why? Because Jon Bon Freakin’ Jovi is sitting right in front of you. Even though the singer tries to call him up to the stage, Bon Jovi politely declines. He just wants to be incognito.
So what does the wedding singer do? She moves to his table and sings right in front of him…and doesn’t move! So there he is, awkwardly smiling – trying not to make eye contact – while having to sit there and listen to someone butcher his song. Not only that – but he’s got the videographer all up in his face, hoping he grabs that mic for an epic duet.
Because Jon Bon Jovi is a nice guy and probably because his ears were bleeding listening to this wedding singer – he eventually grabs the mic and begins to sing. But as we watched his perform, you could tell that all he wants to do is drop the mic – give the finger to the singer – and stroll off….like the rock star he is.
