Bono ay Habbo

The Guardian has sniffed out Bono and the rest of U2 hosting a pub quiz for all comers, while elsewhere R&B star Jamelia holds court in her own beauty salon.

Next door, teen pop sensations McFly and Shayne Ward are chatting to a throng of inquisitive fans and a new boy band is wandering the corridors trying to drum up attention.

No, these are not the wild fantasies of a tabloid gossip hack, but scenes typical of Habbo Hotel, a 3D online world popular with teens which is being targeted by record companies desperate to find new ways to reach this crucial audience.

So Second Live does not have it all its own way!
