Belly laugh of the weekend came from the no-nonsense quote from U2’s drummer about the band’s recent partnership with Apple to distribute their new album. Larry Mullen “couldn’t give a shite” about the subsequent fuss, according to an interview with The Guardian. Bandmate the Edge had more to say though: “I absolutely had my doubts about it before we did it, and after, but it was the right thing to do,” he said. “It was an opportunity that will only ever come around once for anybody. I don’t think anyone would want to do it again.” Bono, meanwhile, reiterated his previous defence of the partnership, which has seen the album downloaded 26m times from iTunes and “experienced” by 81m people in part. “We got paid. And this is about a company that’s fighting for musicians to be paid,” he said.
