Bruce Springsteen Praises Patti Smith's 'Because the Night'

And Springsteen is adamant it was the best decision for the song because it was unlikely to have ever been included on his 1978 project, and may have become a lost tune. He explains, "Jimmy Iovine, who was then an engineer, ...he drove me to Coney Island, and somehow he talked me into giving up the song, which I'm glad that I did because I wasn't going to finish it, and she finished it."

In the "sexually provocative" ad, Beyonce's body is oiled, showing a whole lot of cleavage in her thin clothes. While singing "Fever", she also dances slowly and gives the camera a sharp look.

The U.K. Advertising Standards Authority ruled that the ad should be banned from daytime airing and would only be shown to adult audience above 7.30 P.M. "We considered that Beyonce's body movements and the camera's prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children," the organization said in a statement.

November 18, 2010 02:38:23 GMT


Susan Boyle's sophomore set "The Gift" sells 318,000 copies in its first week.
