Springsteen to debut short film on website

NEW YORK

Bruce Springsteen will debut a short film on his website July 9.

A poster of the film “Hunter of Invisible Game” appeared on the singer’s website Monday. The film is a collaboration with Thom Zimny, who has worked with the Boss in the past.

No more details were provided. A representative for Springsteen didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking more information.

Zimny has directed, produced and edited a number of live Springsteen concert videos.

Madonna donating to hometown Detroit

DETROIT

Madonna, who was “inspired” during a recent visit to Detroit, is donating money toward the construction of a new youth boxing gym and buying iPods, iPads and other supplies for students at a charter school in her hometown, according to a news release issued by the music icon’s publicist Monday.

The statement said Madonna’s donations to three Detroit organizations represent “the first phase of a long-term commitment to” the city.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will provide funding for a new facility for the Downtown Youth Boxing Gym, which provides free after-school boxing and educational mentoring to dozens of children; buy new equipment, art and music supplies for the Detroit Achievement Academy; and help out The Empowerment Plan, a nonprofit that employs homeless women who sew garments that are distributed to the homeless.

The statement does not say how much Madonna is contributing. A message seeking comment was left Monday with Liz Rosenberg, the singer’s publicist.
