Jon Bon Jovi has criticised Kim Kardashian, claiming the reality star only got famous by "making a porno" and lamenting the ways in which celebrities rise to fame nowadays.

The singer, 56, told The Sunday Project: "I think it’s horrific we live in that world, and I can tell you I’ve never given sixty seconds of my life, ever, to one of those 'Housewives of blah blah' or Kardashians."
He made a point of illustrating his ignorance on the topic of reality television, adding: "I don’t even know their names. I’ve never watched 60 seconds of their show."
Bon Jovi further criticised the 38-year-old Kardashian, who's married to Kanye West, and questioned her legacy.
"What’s going to be in your autobiography? 'I made a porno and guess what? I got famous', he added. "F*** sorry, I'll pass."
Instead, the rock star urged young people to explore creative outlets, telling them to "go and write a book, paint a painting, act, study, sing, play, write."
Bon Jovi is set to embark on its first UK tour in six years, stopping by London, Liverpool, and Coventry in June 2019.
The band's frontman told The Sunday Project how touched he is when he thinks of how his band's songs have impacted fans across the world.
"A lot of our songs have touched peoples’ lives and on momentous occasions, graduations, birthdays, weddings," he said. "We’ve been fortunate enough to have quite a few of them. And the history that goes with them travels now through generations."
While announcing Bon Jovi's upcoming UK tour, the singer expressed his excitement at the prospect of playing in stadiums. "Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do," he said in a statement.
Yet, in his new interview, he insisted that stepping onstage requires just as much work when the crowd is small.
"It’s humbling," he said. "But honest to goodness, if I were performing for 20 or 75,000, the same amount of effort goes into it."
