Irish rocker Bono refuses to apologise for his rich lifestyle and "expanding waistline", because he grew up eating aeroplane food.

Bono's brother worked for an airline, and his family relied on handouts when the singer - real name PAUL HEWITT - was a child.

And, now he's a jet-setting rock star, Bono spends his time flying around the world.

He says, "You spend the rest of your life eating airline food. It's enough to drive a fellow to a posh restaurant and might explain my expanding waistline."
