Katy Perry (Sort Of) Steals Spotlight at Bruce Springsteen Pre-Grammy Tribute

Originally posted 02/09/2013 11:45AM

It may have been a tribute to Bruce Springsteen but Katy Perry seemed to be the main attraction for some at Friday's MusiCares Person of the Year tribute at the Los Angeles Convention Center before Sunday's Grammy Awards.

The singer, who arrived at the charity event which raises money for musicians in need sans beau John Mayer, was interrupted by two young fans who asked to take a picture with her as she was talking to director J.J. Abrams. But that wasn't all: the pop star, who later hung out with Elton John, was approached by even more fans in the lobby at the show.

Why Country Singer Eric Church Loves Bruce Springsteen

Grammy Insider: Eric Church Loves Bruce Springsteen

Originally posted 02/03/2013 09:00AM

As a child of the '80s, I was exposed to Bruce Springsteen with Born in the U.S.A. But as I went to college, I became more educated in his music, and it led me on a hell of a journey.

He's writing about experience and real life. "Darkness on the Edge of Town" spoke to me: It was gritty, real and raw. And the escapism in a song like "Thunder Road" – everybody should want that sense of freedom sometimes. Seeing Bruce in concert, I'm always amazed at what the crowd gives and what Bruce gives.

It's a gang and it's a mentality, like, "We get it. We belong." It's a religious experience. Bruce heard my song "Springsteen," and I got a great note from him, saying he was a big fan. It just blew me away. The note is locked up. So if my house burns down, I know it's safe somewhere.

"Get Right" by Jennifer Lopez
I'm not loving the new J.Lo single "Dance Again," but this James Brown-sampling Jam from '05 – the funkiest thing she's ever done – is still righteous.

Springsteen's Wrecking Ball Is About Keeping Dreams Alive (Review) | Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen's Wrecking Ball Is About Keeping Dreams Alive

It's fitting that the two most exhilarating tracks on Bruce Springsteen's new album, Wrecking Ball, are the only ones featuring his beloved E Street Band sideman Clarence Clemons, that giant of a saxman who died last June.

First there's the title cut, which starts as a folky strummer then builds to a rousing anthem for persevering through life's most brutal blows. When Springsteen repeatedly sings the line "Hard times come and hard times go” like a mantra, you can just feel him summoning all his considerable strength and spirit to carry on in the wake of the Big Man's death. It's a devastatingly touching moment.

Then on the gospel-charged "Land of Hope and Dreams," Springsteen imagines boarding that train to heaven, and it sounds like Clemons is waiting and wailing for him at the pearly gates.
