Rick Springfield is promoting his new movie Ricki and the Flash, and yesterday he talked about it on Jimmy Kimmel Live. To make his appearance more interesting, he brought along some never before seen video. That video was a band rehearsal he did in 1980 for the biggest song of his career, Jessie’s Girl. Before it was a huge hit, it was in the development phase.
You get to see him perform the song with his band for the first time, and we finally find out who that song was written about.
So if you are like me and have wanted to know who is Jessie’s Girl, well now we know. Did that revelation make you Bop ‘Til You Drop or do you wish he was going to love somebody else?
To hear the real story, then click here!
Back in 2004, Rick Springfield played a concert at the NY State Fair and woman claims his buttocks hit her when he fell backwards and knocked her unconscious for around 10 minutes. In the 2007 lawsuit, she says that she is still suffering from the injury and is not able to work because of it according to her lawyer, Kenneth Goldblatt.
The singer went out into the crowd and that is when Vicki Calcagno claims his backside met her face and then she hit her head hard against the floor according to Syracuse.com.
The case was declared a mistrial in 2013, when a woman at the same concert claimed she too felt his human touch and did not see anyone else knocked down or injured at the time. That woman says she was not hurt from the incident.
The retrial is happening now and Rick Springfield testified yesterday. According to CNY Central, he said that if he did hurt someone, he would take responsibility for his actions.
Since the trial is ongoing, we will have to wait to find out what if any action will be taken against Springfield’s buttocks.
I learned from Hard to Hold that he has nice a$$, I just never realized it was so dangerous.
Richard Marx and Rick Springfield hooked up at the White House Correspondents Dinner and they both look as sexy as their songs. It might not be the ’80s, but there are still a lot of women who would love to get their hands on one of those Dicks, if not both of them. Hey as the Stranger said, “You Better Love Somebody!” And why not love them.
As we all know Rick Springfield is a touring musician, so that means he travels a lot. By doing so, he is forced to get the pat down when he goes through security because he doesn’t like X-Ray machines. The singer, who never ages, says that he has been patted down so many times, that he has had his penis touched by more men than women.
I am sure there are plenty of ladies, including myself, who would be willing to get those female numbers up for him by giving him the human touch! We all need it, right?
BTW his Tweet reminds me that I need to fly more often!
Jesse Spencer and Rick Springfield were both guests on The Today Show this morning and both Tweeted about meeting each other back stage. The singer posted a photo, but the House star went all fan like on him. Spencer Tweeted, “Just met Rick Springfield at the today show. I told him ‘Jessie’s Girl’ was my first LP and I thought the song was written about me. Hehe 🎸”
Spencer is 33 years old and he was just about 2 when the song came out, so I have to wonder was he a Lothario back when he was just single digits or was he so into himself Carly Simon would’ve written a song about him. Chances are he paid no attention to lyrics and just heard there was a song about a guy named Jesse and just assumed he was that Jesse. Just like how I thought Meredith Brooks’ song B!tch was about me! It is, isn’t it?
You can see Jesse Spencer back on the small screen in Chicago Fire starting on NBC tonight at 10p.
Rick Springfield wants you to be on his next album. All you have to do is videotape yourself singing “I Hate Myself” in the same melody as him and send the video to him on his website Rick Springfield.com/Rockstar by May 11th.
I know he says it is a positive song, but that is the happiest thing to be singing for your musical debut. But hey at least you can tell your grandkids you are a recording artist. Two lines is enough to warrant that, right?
OK off to sing I Hate Myself, and I hate myself for admitting that.
Rick Springfield is 62 years old and yesterday he spent the day in LA with his spunky 93 year old mom Eileen. I am always a sucker for a man who spend time with his mom and these picture just made me love him a little bit more! Seriously aren’t these photo just the sweetest?
BTW isn’t it cute how she is rocking those red sneakers? They make her look younger than she already looks and I don’t thinks looks anywhere near her actual age. She looks like someone at least 20 years younger than she is!
The same year (1983) that Rick Springfield left General Hospital, Jack Wagner joined and the ABC soap had two of the biggest rockers turned actors in the ’80s star on the show. Now it is 2011 and the two are rocking the ocean together on Rick Springfield & Friends Cruise this weekend. Before they had love sick women getting sea sick they posed for pictures at Miami International Airport. Man I wish I knew about that cruise because I would so love to see Dr Noah Drake and Frisco Jones performing together!!! All I Need is Michael Damian aka Danny Romalotti to be on the boat and I would be sudsy rocker heaven!!!
