Posted on 02/05/2014 12:54:21 PM PST by nickcarraway
Gucci just announced the appointment of Bruce Springsteen's daughter, nationally ranked equestrian Jessica Springsteen, as Gucci Equestrian Ambassador. You've definitely heard of that title before and connected those words before in your brain, because it's a real title and a useful epithet that means a tangible thing in this system of language that humans developed over a period of time on Earth.
Springsteen is an accomplished horsewoman. She also wore Björk-style swan attire to the 2013 Gucci Paris Masters. Gucci's creative director, Frida Giannini, promised in a statement that she has "ensured that the design of this new wardrobe provides [Springsteen] with pieces that manage to be both technically correct and stylish."
This is a brand that just created the title "Equestrian Ambassador" out of whole cloth and princess dreams, and so I trust that "technically correct" is right at the forefront of their priorities.
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to ride
Bruce Springsteen’s daughter is a horse?
Horsey Days...with a whinny of horses sigh...Horsey Days
Its OK - her Dad sing’s Pete Seeger songs, so it all balances out.
The voice of The Working Man. He’s a man of the people. And by “the people”, I mean Gucci and the horsey set.
Give her a riding crop with a boob job and she could make some serious cash with that costume downtown...
As for his daughter...who cares?
And I’m sure they don’t see any irony in that.
I’m sure its a Union Job......
He hasn't been a 'man of the people' since he bought his mansion in Rumson, WAY back in the early 80s. Don't know if he still lives there. He may have moved out to Colt's Neck, where many of the media high muckety-mucks lived, at one point.
Help me out here: tramp = “more money than I have?”
Actually for a liberal, Bruce did a kick-a$$ job raising his children. One a fireman and one a model. Making their own way in life. I give them much credit compared to a lot of rich kids.
Cause tramps like us
Why do you call her a tramp? This is 100 percent why the public thinks Republicans and Conservatives are nasty. What on Earth did this young lady do that results in being called a tramp?
Dressed like a chicken is no way to go through life.
Perfect lyric nick, literally LOLed...
And that's the point: as a horsewoman, she's pretty good. Will she break into the top tier? Probably not, but one of her kids might.
And I am to feel envy because she probably rides a $250,000.00 Dutch Warmblood and has the best trainers the U.S. (or the world) has to offer? Not on my FR.
Are you actually being sarcastic?
Are you familiar with the oeuvre of Mr. Springsteen?
Gucci? Equestrian? Isn’t that a bit 1%-ish?
Doesn’t look like sarcasm to me. Do you disagree with the statement?
Give her the benefit of doubt and say it’s an Emily Litella impression.
Of all the thousands of lines written by Springsteen that is probably the single best-known, though apparently not by his Freeper fanboys.
And I hear he's a FARMER!
For tax purposes only.
Also, you need to invest in a dictionary. The No. 1 definition of tramp as a noun is a vagrant or hobo. That's the definition Springsteen was using in his song.
Maybe you should complain to Springsteen, and he is not a conservative.
You think I am evil too, because I quoted a well-known Bruce Springsteen song.
I had to go back and read my post since it was awhile a go and I have moved on. So I took the time to read my post again and re-familiarize myself with the story. I really was just asking questions. Did you feel offended by my questions? If so I apologize. You normally are not so thin skinned. I will be more careful posting to you.
Shouldn’t Chelsea Clinton be the natural choice?
Gucci has a consulate? Where, Milan? Next to the Vatican?
Maybe Oprah can enlighten us.
Ever see her mom? Is it Patti Smith? It’s Year of the Horse, yaknow
Patti Scialfa is her mom, I believe. The E Street Band member come wife, of Mr Man of the People.
Yup! The Man of the People has a row of corn he harvests in July. Only in America, folks, only in America.
Thanks for that, my mind Fuzzes occasionally! I remembered a Patti.
He’s one of the anointed, like Sting, Bono, Stevie Tyler.. I remember them all fuzzily, come to think of it. :-)
HaPPy Olympics debacle!!
Forgot comment and had to refresh memory: February 05, 2014 4:55:41 PM
Thirty minutes - Watch your words if your own mind can't handle them once they are said.
Then no accountability while 'it's someone else's sensitivity'.
Liberalism at it's every day level.
Sam Springsteen is a volunteer fireman, not a professional firefighter. That’s a good thing, of course, but he probably has another profession/job/schooling. Monmouth County only has volunteers. Bruce has been very nice to our poorer neighborhoods here (Asbury Park) and has been paid back by being constantly ripped off financially - the school system “lost” every single damn computer he donated. Only one entity that I know has profited by his generosity - run by a very honest individual.
A ridiculously ugly outfit!
She can actually ride, at least - although I dislike the modern style of riding your horse's neck in a jump! And...
"AMERICAN rock legend Bruce Springsteen's daughter, Jessica, wants to go to Rio and has splashed out millions of dollars on a horse to get her there.
London Olympics gold medallist Peter Charles has revealed on Facebook Jessica Springsteen has bought his showjumping champion Murka's Vindicat.
The price was not revealed but top-class showjumpers have been changing hands for as much as $A7.5 million.
...Charles, 52, sealed Britain's team showjumping gold medal in August riding a faultless final round for the team on the Dutch-bred bay gelding."
It’s a shame Bruce continues to subscribe to the very political malaise (liberalism) that has caused both the poorer neighborhoods and incompetent school system(s).
I threw out my Springsteen CD’s long ago after coming to my senses and learning what that man was really about. I wonder if his children asked him what he did during the war when the less fortunate common folk were dying and shedding their blood in Vietnam.
Reminiscent of the age old biblical question of why do the wicked prosper and the righteous suffer.
LOL! Maybe he’s never heard the song.
You're being obtuse.
since it was awhile a go(sic)
It was 30 minutes what are you, 107?
I really was just asking questions.
Really? This is 100 percent why the public thinks Republicans and Conservatives are nasty.
Doesn't look like a question.
It’s COOL to be a lib or a Democrat. Until it ceases to be cool, no show biz personality will ever back off these pernicious ideas.
I admit to turning up the car stereo whenever Born to Run plays, singing along, with particular emphasis and head bobbing to the "'Cause tramps like us . . ." line.
I know Springsteen is a big leftist and all, but as a person he is aces in my book. My daughter’s best friend had bone cancer in her leg at the age of 10. Without any publicity, Springsteen would regularly visit her in the hospital to cheer her up. The only people who ever knew about it were her family and her friend’s families.
She’s not bad are we sure she is who she is?
And your part of this conversation how? Lord you are a busy body.
The board is public. Wake up! Your name calling is just more of your liberalism.
I put myself out there with all the information you need to know my beliefs. You provide nothing and you call me the liberal. I think that is all you are .well besides a thread bully. You had no business posting to me. Did I post to you prior???? No I did not. There are times when I give my wisdom to you through a post, but I did not anywhere on that thread.
So why is this young woman being mocked? She is lovely.
But reading your response, I still think you were being facetious. You've never heard Bruce Springsteen songs? Even if you haven't, I would thing you could tell from the context that isn't what I was saying.
So if it was a joke, just come out and say it.
