Well, at this point, doing that might be WAY more profitable than NOT doing it.

You may not be that far off the mark, especially if Jon had to agree to a "360 deal" -- in which the label gets some of his touring income -- to be taken back by Universal Music. However, what with Bon Jovi's vocals, album sales, and overall credibility also "way out of their prime," paying Richie to reunite rejoin may have become a gamble that's worth taking.

After all, Universal weren't too proud to throw their own Nicki Minaj under the bus when her brother was busted for having sex with his stepdaughter: They allowed Cardi B, a direct competitor from another label, to perform on a single that Nicki and Universal labelmates Migos had done -- and they forced Nicki to rewrite a verse that they felt made Cardi look bad!

At any rate, the planets have aligned and all the signs are pointing in the right direction -- cautious optimism, anyone?

Remember how we used to talk about busting out? We'd break their hearts together...forever...

You and me and our old friends / hoping it would never end / holding on to never say goodbye...
