Bruce Springsteen has commented on claims that Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez bit Italian player Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match yesterday (June 24).

"Biting has no place in sports," said Springsteen to a reporter from TMZ who quizzed him about the incident. "What are the rules about biting in the World Cup?" he asked. "There probably should be one."

When asked if he would be following in Bon Jovi's footsteps and owning or creating a sports team himself, he commented: "No. Rock 'n' Roll is hard enough."

An online museum of Bruce Springsteen memorabilia will launch this month to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the singer's record 'Born in the USA'. BlindedByTheLight.com will feature over 300 objects, ranging from concert posters to handwritten lyrics – with more items to be added in the future. The online museum will offer contest prizes every six months, with website creator Michael Crane offering signed album artwork as the prize for the first contest, reports Rolling Stone.

Springsteen recently made headlines by playing a number of unexpected cover versions during his live shows, including Van Halen's 'Jump' at the March Madness Music Festival in Dallas in April.

While touring Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, the singer covered songs such as AC/DC's 'Highway To Hell', for which he brought on stage Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, 'Stayin' Alive' by The Bee Gees, 'Friday On My Mind' by The Easybeats and INXS' 'Don't Change'. A show in Auckland, New Zealand also saw Springsteen cover Lorde's 'Royals', a cover which she subsequently said made her "teary".
