Jon Bon Jovi talks duct tape pants

Jon Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi fixes his pants with duct tape if they split on stage.

The legendary rocker has sold millions of record, both as lead singer of Bon Jovi and as a solo artist.

Despite his success, the 50-year-old can't avoid some awkward moments on stage.

"Oh, I've split my pants on stage on more than one occasion!" he revealed to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"You put duct tape on and then just deal with the consequences at the end of the show. Ouch! I've certainly done stupid things. Boogies coming out of your nose or something, that's part of it!"

The singer originates from New Jersey, where he spent his childhood trying to make it as a musician.

Despite hit reality TV show Jersey Shore being filmed close to his hometown, the singer makes a point of not watching the series.

"No [I've never seen it], I'm really proud to say that," he said.

"I was there way before they were... People from New Jersey know that's not what it's like. I most resent that those shows create 'celebrities', that's bad."
