Bruce Springsteen is a good guy. It's no secret that The Boss has a big heart, as evidenced by his decades of charitable work and willingness to pop into Jersey Shore clubs and delight tiny crowds with some bar band greatness. But, according to Adele, Bruce is also a real gentleman.

When Adele attended Springsteen's Rock in Rio show in Lisbon last week, she came a bit underdressed in a light dress that wasn't appropriate for the weather. "I was wearing a ridiculous skirt, which was silly. It gets quite windy in Lisbon," she told the crowd at her own Lisbon show over the weekend, per The Mirror. "I had a little thin jumper on, and Bruce came out and said: 'You’re going to be cold.' I was a bit drunk, I’d had four glasses of wine, so I said I’d be fine."

But, because he's The Boss and a boss, Springsteen insisted she cover up, as confirmed by one of his spokespeople. "He gave me his coat – so I was watching the show, wearing his coat," Adele said. "I was too embarrassed to try to put my arms in because, obviously, too small. So I just wore it on my shoulders."
