Bruce Springsteen: "I didn't even know I was up for a Grammy"

Singer reflects on his long month: Super Bowl, 'We Are One' Obama concert and more.

by Lindsay Wallace

Bruce Springsteen did a remarkable job of condensing the energy of his three-hour-plus-long concerts into 12 minutes with his rousing halftime performance at the Super Bowl. But it sounds like the effort took a toll on the Boss.

"It was like being shot out of a cannon," a tired but happy Springsteen told MTV News. "I didn't know 12 minutes could take that much out of you! I'm still recovering from the intensity."

Springsteen, still tan from his time in Florida, made this comment just moments after stepping out of his parked car, where he'd just spent the previous 30 minutes spontaneously napping. "This has probably been the busiest month of my life," he said.

Of course, that month has also included his performance at President Obama's "We Are One" concert, winning a Golden Globe Award for his title track to "The Wrestler," releasing his new LP, Working on a Dream, announcing his forthcoming world tour (including an appearance at the Bonnaroo festival), and winning yet another Grammy Award — one he actually said he wasn't aware he was in the running for.

"I didn't even know I was up for a Grammy!" he laughed. (His "Girls in Their Summer Clothes," from last year's Magic LP, took the Best Rock Song trophy.) "I opened the newspaper on Monday and saw that I had won, and thought, 'Well, that's great!' "

And with that, it was back to his car, to rest up for his world tour, which begins April 1 in San Jose, California, and is scheduled to run into August.
