Bruce Springsteen has admitted in an exclusive interview, 24 years after releasing his hit song "Dancing In The Dark" that he is actually afraid of the dark.
Springsteen has long been hailed as one of the greatest singers of the 1980s, and one of the greatest singers in history (Oh, OK, I admit it: that's my opinion). He hit the music scene in the late seventies and most of his songs went roaring to the top of the charts.
But just recently he decided to come out and tell the truth about his second most famous hit: he is afraid of the dark.
"I know I said I was dancing in it in my song, but that truth is that would never happen. I'm afraid of the dark and I sleep with the lights on. I only dance in bright lights and disco strobes. In fact, not only that but I was born in Canada, not the USA and I have never even been to the Streets of Philadelphia. It's all been just a Brilliant Disguise."
Springsteen's admissions have sent shockwaves throughout the entire music industry and it is rumoured that Courtney Cox has vowed never to appear in one of his music videos ever again.
"I don't like liars" said Cox "if I'd known that Bruce was afraid of the dark I would never have agreed to appear in that film clip. I feel betrayed, violated, sad and disgusted."
Immigration authorities are currently deciding whether Springsteen will be deported back to Canada. A decision will be announced early next week.
