(Newser) – Today in the Whiny Celebrities Department: Jon Bon Jovi, who is none too pleased he was left off of two Forbes celebrity lists. “Jon kicked up a huge fuss and got his people to complain” when he didn’t make it on the Power 100 or the Musicians’ Rich List, a source tells the New York Post. “He couldn't understand why he didn't make the musicians list since Bon Jovi has been touring nonstop since February. Even Britney Spears was No. 5, and she hasn't done anything this year.”

Despite a Bon Jovi rep denying the claim (while also mentioning that “next year” the band is sure to make the lists), Forbes confirms someone from the band’s camp did in fact complain, and explains that Bon Jovi didn’t tour for eight months out of the 12-month period Forbes used to estimate earnings.
