Bruce Springsteen Says He Doesn't Mind Being Parodied

Bruce Springsteen has opened up on parodies of his onstage persona, saying that he doesn't mind. In fact, he says, mockery comes with the territory:

"It happens to everybody, if you've been around long enough," he told Something Else Reviews.

"A part of what you do is caricature, if you've had a long life. I look back on certain moments, and iconic things are very, very close to parody - always. Always. That's why they're powerful. They're just a thin line away from that being one step that makes it completely ridiculous, instead of a little bit ridiculous. There's always a little bit of absurdity in fame, period, and in who you are and what you're doing. There's always some silliness to it, and some silly aspect of it. You learn to live with you, you know?"

Springsteen has been parodied by several comic luminaries including Jimmy Fallon and Ben Stiller.
