Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. Honest.


Rock fans and women around the world are breathing a collective sigh of relief: Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. Despite rumors of his demise, the charming rock legend is alive and well.

It appears to have started with a fake blog post reporting that Bon Jovi suffered cardiac arrest. However at a little after 7:00 PM, this photo was posted on the official Bon Jovi band Facebook page, with the status update, “‘Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey’ -jbj. Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken.”


The news did give the Twittersphere an opportunity to have some fun at the rocker’s expense:

@Scott Nevins – “Just to clarify: Jon Bon Jovi did NOT die but Kim Jong ll did. I can see how people could be easily confused…”

@Aaron Sagers – “OK people, just to recap: Kim Jong Il is dead. Jon Bon Jovi is NOT dead. And in case you’re really behind, Mark Twain is definitely dead.”

@SketchofMD  – “Jon Bon Jovi isn’t dead and everybody born after 1989 is asking “Who’s Jon Bon Jovi?”

@mtabini – “Jon Bon Jovi reported alive. His good music is still reported missing.”

@ScuzzTV – “Jon Bon Jovi cannot be killed by conventional weapons. Also, don’t get him wet or feed him after midnight.”

And this tweet, which sums up the impact social networking has on pop culture:

@jonpyle – “What does it say about news that when I saw someone post that Jon Bon Jovi was dead, the first place I went to verify was Twitter.”

What do you do when the Internet declares you dead, and you’re not? Well, if you’re rock star Jon Bon Jovi, you reach out directly to your massive social media fan base (14.9 million Facebook “Likes” and 450,000 Twitter followers) and use the Internet to prove the Internet wrong. It’s just that simple.
