ON SITE PROCESSING:
Bruce Springsteen s life is now officially
an open book.
The autobiography Born to Run takes
readers on a riveting ride through the every-
man rock star s deeply-lived existence.
Springsteen, who scrawled his story in
longhand over seven years, begins with an
exquisitely detailed child s-eye view of his
1950 s working-class neighbourhood. He
weaves an American Land tapestry popu-
lated with his colourful Irish-Italian family.
Then come the musical musings:
• Young Bruce, "on fire" after seeing Elvis
on TV, quickly chafed at "stupendously bor-
ing" music lessons. "I still can t read music
to this day."
• Once, in his early band, the Castiles,
"we were being spit on, literally, way before
it was a punk badge of honour."
• Mature Bruce worked to capitalise on
his strengths while compensating for imper-
fect vocal tone.
• Among the bucket moments: realising
a "teenage daydream" while playing with
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Springsteen s California phase yielded
picture-perfect landscape descriptions,
though readers will spend more time hanging
out in---no surprise---a different state.
Readers may need to buckle up for parts
of this 508-page spin. He contemplates
some deeply personal topics as a way of
providing context for his art.
Springsteen, 67---who had an integrated
band back when that wasn t always pop-
ular---reveals what he wishes he d said after
the beloved Big Man was subjected to a
sickening racial slur. He also shares the
heart-wrenching hospital scene when
Clarence Clemons drew his last breath.
Then he candidly discusses his own har-
rowing health battles. (AP)
If you check Danielle Brooks Instagram
account, you ll see plenty of poses that ooze
self-confidence, from shots of the Orange is
the New Black star in glamourous outfits to
a selfie of her with her midriff exposed.
But full-figured Brooks says it has taken
some mind manipulation to get her to feel as
happy with herself as the vibe she projects.
"I kind of like tricked myself into this love,
and positive affirmations that I have for myself,
which has been really good," said Brooks. "I
don t wanna walk around this world feeling
like I don t feel worthy, or I don t feel like I m
beautiful because society has shown me that
I am not enough, because they don t put me
on the cover on the magazines or I don t see
myself reflected in media enough."
Brooks is doing her part to make that change
happen. The actress, who was nominated for
a Tony for her role in the revival of The Color
Purple on Broadway, has teamed with lifestyle
portal Refinery29 for its campaign to make
full-figured women more visible in media.
"I think that we have a long way to go, but
I think we are gonna now start to see a big
shift in the change in media, in magazines,
on the fashion runways, on our screens, in
television," she said.
The 67 Percent project aims to showcase
more women who are over a size 14; the web-
site says the majority of women in the United
States, or 67 per cent, are in that size range.
Brooks has been the face of the campaign,
which launched this week.
Brooks, who is also a spokeswoman for the
clothing line Lane Bryant, said that when she
first gained fame for her role on the award-
winning Netflix series, she couldn t find any
designer willing to dress her for major award
"It was very difficult to find a dress that I
felt represented who I am that wasn t black
or blue or a plain Jane dress," she said. "Like,
I wanna wear cutouts, I wanna wear the bells
and whistles, and just all the different kind of
textures that other girls get to wear."
Christian Siriano came to her rescue and
has become her go-to designer. But she added:
"I m looking to wear a plethora of different
designers. I want to walk on a carpet and get
to wear Prada or Gucci or whatever that might
be, and so, I feel like they need to step up. It s
time, we re here." (AP)
