Bruce Springsteen – Raises The Roof At The Super Bowl Halftime Party

Bruce Springsteen

Bruce and the E-Street band didn’t disappoint at the much anticipated halftime show. Bruce opened his 12 minute performance to a very energized crowd in Tampa, Florida with “10th Avenue Freezeout” which led right into his classic “Born to Run”. He then performed a brief segment of “Working on a Dream” ,the title track of his just-released album. Springsteen and the band closed with “Glory Days”. The 59-year old Bruce looked like he could have played all night but was restricted by time constraints.

“I think it’s quittin’ time, Steve,” Springsteen laughed to guitarist Steve Van Zandt.

Steve argued a bit, but then a referee came out and jokingly flagged the band for delay-of-game penalty.

“Steve what time is it?” Bruce asked.

“It’s Boss time!” Van Zandt shouted.

This year has been Boss time. He won the Best Original Song Golden Globe for “The Wrestler”. He gave a stirring performance of his 9/11 tribute “The Rising” on the National Mall for Barack Obama’s inauguration. This week he released a new album “Working On A Dream”.
And tonight, in front of millions he rocked the house at the Super Bowl XLIII. He didn’t sing “I’m On Fire”, but he definitely is.

Mickey Rourke and Evan Rachel Woods Share A Kiss

Mickey Rourke and Evan Rachel Wood were caught kissing. It wasn’t the kind of kiss you would see on ‘The Wrestler’, a father/daughter kiss. It was a romantic kiss – the kind of kiss you read about in books, or see on the soap operas. So why is it making news??

Evan Rachel Wood is 21, Mickey Rourke is 56. That is a huge age difference.

Stranger things have happened – after all, this is Hollywood. Evan Rachel Wood, 21, made the headlines last year after she started dating Marilyn Manson (19 years her senior) but since their split in December has she now moved on to 56-year-old veteran actor Mickey Rourke?

The two attended Grey Goose’s Official SAG after-party on Sunday evening but were spotted leaving together. According to Fox News, Evan went upstairs with Mickey when he suddenly grabbed her for a lip-lock in the outside area of the Four Seasons hotel.

The pair have been romantically linked since she played his daughter in “The Wrestler,” although Wood always denied that they were anything more than friends.

Reps for Rourke and Wood did not respond for comment.

Evan Rachel Woods is a young, beautiful woman with an interesting choice in men. What do you think of Evan’s choice in men??
