Bruce Springsteen calls his deal with Wal-Mart "a mistake."
Springsteen gave the retail giant sole rights to sell his latest greatest hits CD, which hit Wal-Mart shelves mid-January.
Fans have criticized Springsteen, an outspoken advocate of worker's rights, for dealing with Wal-Mart, which has been scrutinized for its labor methods.
Springsteen told press he "dropped the ball on it."
"It was a mistake. Our batting average is usually very good, but we missed that one. Fans will call you on that stuff, as it should be."
Whatever you say, Boss.
There's no truth to the rumor that he was distracted by the trouble when he knee-slid into the camera during last night's Super Bowl halftime show.
