He's The Boss, people. What else is there to say?

Forget all the flak he's taking from the press. And from voters. And from political opponents who think this could spell the end of his 2016 Presidential election bid.

THIS has to hurt the most for Chris Christie.

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the governor's very own musical hero joined the show's host on stage for a reworked version of "Born to Run," one that skewered Christie for his role in Bridgegate.

Yes, even Bruce Springsteen is now piling on in light of a scandal that involves Christie's subordinates purposely causing a major traffic jam for residents of Fort Lee, New Jersy because the mayor of that city didn't support Christie.

Causing kids to be late for school and thousands of people to be late for work? Not funny. The lyrics and presentation of the following parody? Totally hilarious.

Bruce Springsteen performed a concert in Ireland yesterday, but the singer's thoughts were clearly on a major story taking place in America:

The George Zimmerman verdict that acquitted this Florida resident in the wake of his shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Springsteen performed “American Skin (41 Shots),” telling the crowd before doing so: "I want to send this out as a letter back home, for justice for Trayvon Martin."

The track was penned in 1999 after New York City police officers shot and killed an unarmed man named Amadou Diallo.

Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian Tweeted her thoughts on Martin, but got in a lot of trouble for doing so. We doubt The Boss will face the same backlash.

New Jersey's #1 ambassador (with apologies to Chris Christie, who would probably agree with us), Bruce Springsteen, rocked the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief last night.

The Boss kicked off the four-and-a-half-hour-plus show - which also featured a Nirvana reunion - with "Land of Hope and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball" and "City of Ruins."

"For 25 years, if you go to Asbury [Park] in the summer, and there was no one on its beaches, no one on its boardwalk," Springsteen said in introducing "City of Ruins."

"Then, over the past decade, thanks to an arts community, thanks to the gay community, thanks to people who lived there and toughed it out, the town has had a renaissance."

The gauntlet has been thrown down, young rock stars.

Bruce Springsteen, 62, jumped into the crowd during his Wrecking Ball tour stop Tuesday night in Philadelphia, grabbed some stranger's beer and chugged the entire thing in the middle of a song, surrounded by a sea of devoted fans.

All in a day's work for the beloved blue-collar rock icon. Watch Bruce chug, then throw the empty cup triumphantly into the crowd like ... well, like a Boss:

Floor seats at Wells Fargo Center: $125. Watered down domestic beer: $9.50. The Boss ganking it from you during a rendition of "Raise Your Hand"? Priceless.

Living legend Bruce Springsteen kicked off the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday with his latest single, the patriotic anthem "We Take Care of Our Own."

Backed by the E Street Band, Springsteen's energetic effort left his fans - including a very enthusiastic Lady Gaga - on their feet dancing and cheering.

Not bad for a 62-year-old.

The first single off of his upcoming album Wrecking Ball, "We Take Care of Our Own" embodies many of close-to-home themes that have made the New Jersey native so influential and a working class hero to many. Watch the Boss of Rock n' Roll below:

As Grammys host LL Cool J said afterward, right before his prayer for Whitney Houston, Bruce and his music always have a way of speaking to our times.

Bruce Springsteen has released the official music video for "We Take Care Of Our Own," and it's not exactly the most upbeat four minutes in the history of the business.

As posted below, the video is shot in black and white and features no member of the E Street Band. Instead, we simply see shots of The Boss playing in an abandoned house, which are toggled between images of everyday Americans walking around, sullen, as the lyrics flash on screen.

However... Springsteen then asks “where’s the promise from sea to sea" and colorful, happier images crop up, such as a young boy catching a baseball.

Watch below and mark down March 6 on your calendar. That's when the album "Wrecking Ball" comes out.

"Wherever this flag's flown, we take care of our own." - Bruce Springsteen

There is perhaps no more legendary American musician and working class hero than the Boss of Rock and Roll himself. With his new album Wrecking Ball coming March 6, Bruce Springsteen has just released a new single, “We Take Care of Our Own.”

Take a listen below and see what you think:

In vintage Springsteen fashion, the song is musically upbeat, yet references the struggles of America with lyrics like, “Where’s the promise, from sea to shining sea?”

Other songs on the 11-track album reflect similar populist sentiments, with titles such as "Death to My Hometown," "This Depression" and "Easy Money."

Politics aside ... The BOSS is back, baby!

With Clarence Clemons slowly recovering from a stroke, Bruce Springsteen has issued his first statement on the condition of his close friend and bandmate.

"Clarence will need much care and support to achieve his potential once again," The Boss wrote. "He has his wonderfully supportive wife, Victoria, excellent doctors and health care professionals and is surrounded by friends and family.

“I thank you all for your prayers and positive energy and concern. This is a time for us all to share in a hopeful spirit that can ultimately inspire Clarence to greater heights.”

Clarence Clemons and Bruce Springsteen

The family of this iconic saxophonist, seen above rocking out with the E Street Band, also issued a statement. It reads:

”Clarence’s family appreciates your concern and wants to let you know that you can send him your wishes via e-mail to notestoclarence@clarenceclemons.com."

Excuse us while we go do exactly that.

The great Bruce Springsteen joined host Jimmy Fallon, who does an amazing Neil Young impression, for a cover of "Whip My Hair" on Late Night last night.

It is nothing short of epic.

Dressed as Young and evoking the crooner with each word and mannerism, Fallon's "Whip My Hair" felt straight out of the '70s, decades before Willow Smith graced this planet. The Boss rocked a Born to Run-era beard for the occasion, too:

Was Bruce Springsteen born to run into the arms of Ann Kelly? Did she see him dancing in the dark ... naked? Did they go for a ride in the tunnel of love?

Does anyone born after 1980 get any of these bad Bruce Springsteen jokes? It's unclear. But Ann clearly alleges that she had an affair with the rock god.

Or at least her husband alleges she did.

Kelly, a housewife living with a mortgage broker husband and two kids in a $600,000 New Jersey suburban home, says Bruce entered her (life) in 2005.

The married Springsteen showering her with concert tickets, serenaded her and confessed she was on his mind during his touring, court records allege.

The details of the alleged tryst are all coming to light now because of Ann Kelly's husband of 17 years, Arthur Kelly, filed for divorce on March 27, 2009.

Mmm. Looks like the Boss has a type. Right, Ann Kelly?

The affair between Kelly and Springsteen, who has three children with wife Patti Scialfa, began with chit chats at the gym and became much more.

Arthur Kelly says Ann Kelly enjoyed a rendezvous with Bruce Springsteen while Arthur was laid up in a hospital with heart trouble, and references marriage counseling sessions at which The Boss was the main topic of discussion.

Rumors that Springsteen was having an affair with a redheaded knockout who was a dead ringer for Patti Scialfa surfaced a few years back, too.

Arthur says Ann told him that he would stand at the end of her treadmill as she ran. It must have been a tempting vantage point for the "Thunder Road" singer because he once told Ann she had the "nicest ass" in the gym, Arthur says.

Ann allegedly told Arthur's mom several times that "it made her feel good that Bruce Springsteen was very interested in her," the papers say.

The housewife allegedly conscripted her friends to be on "Springsteen watch," and asked for intel on when Springsteen's wife would be away.

A spokeswoman for Springsteen declined to comment on the cheating allegations. However, a friend of The Boss responded, "Bruce and Patti continue to have a terrific marriage and are very devoted to each other and their children."
