( @Phillymag, #BruceSpringsteen )
What is the point? The writer hates Bruce Springsteen. That’s it. I could point out that his reasons are obviously forced and carefully constructed to be just the right amount of snarky (to win over the hipster crowd), but why bother (okay I just did)? This is just another short-sited opinion piece that will do nothing to grow the magazine’s readership or ads. I subscribed to the magazine a few years ago because I wanted to read about things to do in the city and people making a difference, I don’t want to read about why a bitter writer hates Bruce Springsteen – and the dude doesn’t even have good reasons!
Philebrity also takes the magazine to task, so you should probably go there next to read the comments because I am sure they will be extraordinary. I get it, this is the city that boos Santa Claus, so even “Philly friendly” artists like the Boss have to take their beatings. I expect this kind of shit from bloggers, but not a respectable city publication… grow up!
I shared my thoughts with the writer and we had this exchange on facebook…
