Adam’s kids hate his fashion sense and often ask him to change clothes before being seen with him: “I do embarrass them now, I wear shorts a lot.

Who’s gonna yell at me?’”
Bono says his kids were embarrassed when they learnt he was hanging out with Beyonce and Jay Z. He said they commented on the meeting: “‘He’s probably boring their a***s off talking about Africa’. And actually I think I was at the time. Not boring their a***s off… Actually, I probably was.”

Sarah’s kids ask her not to dance or use younger words: “James doesn’t like me using words he thinks I’m too old to use and I’m not allowed to dance in front of anyone.

I used to do a special song and dance for him when he was a toddler, but now when I say I feel it coming on, he screams, ‘Nooooo.’”
