“In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream” – Born To Run
The lyrics and songs have resonated with thousands from around the world and developed a larger than life following for the one and only Bruce Springsteen. There’s a common misconception with the fanbase for Bruce Springsteen due to the lifestyles talked about in his music.
You’d think all his fans are from suburban, small towns, hoping to leave there one day, but there are a large number of celebrities in crowded cities that love The Boss.
Here are just a few…
Stewart had Bruce Springsteen play him out on his FINAL EPISODE OF THE DAILY SHOW. Bruce is somewhat vocal with his politics but has always remained a found admirer of Stewart. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.
Known for HBO’s The Newsroom, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and The Belko Experiment is a Delaware native who loves The Boss. When asked about music influences in an interview with Everything Sunday Gallagher said “I listen to a lot of Bruce Springsteen. I’m a bit of a fanatic. I am pretty much always in the mood to listen to him.”
From playing at his inauguration to a secret farewell gig at the White House in 2016, Bruce has always been one of President Obama’s favorites. Just recently, Obama listed the track “Hello Sunshine” from Bruce’s latest album ‘Western Stars’ as one of his favorite songs of 2019. In 2009, Bruce was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors by none other than the President himself. Lastly, in Obama’s last month in office he gave Bruce the medal of Freedom along side Tom Hanks, Joe Biden, Cicely Tyson, and others.
Born to Run to Born This Way! Lady Gaga has been a fan of Bruce since she was a child. In an article with Billboard, Gaga said “Springsteen had such an influence on our home. My father gave me, I believe it was for Christmas, a Bruce Springsteen songbook for the piano and on it was ‘Thunder Road,’ which is my favorite Bruce Springsteen song.”
