Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has issued the ultimate snub to next month's (FEB04) BRIT AWARDS - he finds the event too "nauseating" to host.

The BED OF ROSES singer was invited to present the London bash, but he swiftly turned down the opportunity, because he can't imagine anything worse than having to "smile fakely" and stand up for an entire evening.

He spits, "I was asked to present but the idea of standing for three hours saying, 'And the winner is...' and having to smile fakely and clap when you don't mean it - well, I'd rather be anywhere else."
