Bruce Springsteen: gay for one moment in time

At a party my girlfriend Kate and I threw last week, the rumor went around that Bruce Springsteen had just come out as gay. "Oh, you haven't heard?" Etc.

There were a lot of renditions of lines like "strap your arms 'round my engines", but Kate had the line of the night. She'd just been told, and someone was crying "baby we were born to run!" to which she responded, "born to run... from the heterosexual normative!"

Unfortunately, in the light of day we can't actually find any evidence that Bruce Springsteen is gay.

We did, however, find a relevant Onion headline:

"All Male Celebrities Gay, According to Internet"

Who cares if he's gay? He's just an open minded guy with a guitar that sings what's on his mind, anyway. "Just one kiss from you, my brother and we'll ride until we fall" ("This Hard Land")
