In The Surreal Department

Springsteen and Nelly? I would bet on this NOT happening. I can just imagine the scene at the Springsteen's home:

Bruce: "Hey Ev! (Evan is Springsteen's oldest son) What do you think about me doing something with Nelly?

Evan: "Who? Oh, Nelly. Uh, I don't know Dad...he's kind of over."

Bruce: "Yeah, I've never really considered it seriously. But I couldn't say no outright. I met him at an awards show. He said he wanted to do something and I didn't know what to say. I wouldn't want to lose that nice guy reputation of mine."

Evan: "You're a dork."

Nelly Wants Springsteen Collaboration

By DERRIK J. LANG Associated Press Writer

Mar 29th, 2008 | LOS ANGELES -- Nelly is bummed he wasn't able to collaborate with Bruce Springsteen on his new album.

"I was really trying to get The Boss, but The Boss is all over the world," Nelly told The Associated Press on the orange carpet at Saturday's Kids Choice Awards. "It didn't really work out. I know he's interested in doing it. And I'm interested in doing it."

Nelly was mum on what a duet with Springsteen would've sounded like, but the "Hot In Here" rapper is hopeful he'll be able to work with the "Born to Run" rock and roller later this year.

"We still might get a chance to get it off," Nelly said. "We're saving it. We might repackage it for the holidays."

The 33-year-old rapper from St. Louis last formed an unlikely union in 2004 when he teamed up with country star Tim McGraw for the song "Over and Over" from Nelly's album "Suit."

"Brass Knuckles," Nelly's fifth album set for release in June, won't be lacking in names. Akon, Ashanti, Chuck D, Ciara, LL Cool J, Lil Wayne, Pimp C, Snoop Dogg and T.I. are all set to appear. "Party People," the first single off the album, features Fergie.

I have no comment on Springsteen except to say that I really dig the new album. The real reason for this comment is to turn you onto a woman named Ruthie Foster. Are you familiar with her? I checked out Adele (whom I dig) and Duffy (who I can take or leave) because of your posts. I wanted to return the favor. I honestly have NO idea how this album showed up on my hard was just there! This woman can sing, end of story. I've posted a song called "Give You My Love" on Fusion 45 and you can find her at True soul lives! Hope I've not violated any rules of etiquette with this post...needed to share the love.
