Jon Bon Jovi Days

The Covid-stricken mega-star is passing the time watching *this* daytime drama as he battles the virus.

It’s always fun when celebrities share their love of soap opera… it’s not so fun when the star in question reveals that he likes to indulge in a little daytime delight along with a Covid diagnosis.

Yep, Jon Bon Jovi has Covid and is sequestered in his home under quarantine while he battles the virus, which he characterized as “no joke.”

Bon Jovi took to social media to share an update with his followers on his condition. He’s on day six of his quarantine and reported that he is “getting better,” after thanking fans for all of their “well wishes.”

The beloved artist then went on to clarify, “Actually, I am better.” Phew! We couldn’t be more relieved to hear that, and hope that the band will soon be back out on tour after having to cancel previously planned outings due to the pandemic. Bon Jovi released their fifteenth (!) album in October 2020 but have yet to play it in stadiums. It seems we’re not the only ones eager for this to happen!

Bon Jovi ended his missive with a warning to his followers to, “Take this stuff seriously, folks.”

Sharp soap viewers will notice that Bon Jovi is positioned in front of a television set throughout his video clip, and at one point he stops talking to let the theme song of the soap he’s watching play… and we hear ‘like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives…” Yes, the mega-star is a Days of Our Lives fan, who knew?

We wish Jon Bon Jovi a speedy recovery and hope that any and all drama in his remaining quarantine takes place in Salem!
