It’s totally cool that Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are all sharing the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire and getting their own separate individual covers — for one because it annoys me when Lea Michele hogs all the buzz from “Glee,” but because mainstream women’s mags are not exactly known for putting African-American women on the cover. So, yay, for that beautiful Amber Riley cover. However! While I was reading the copy on the different covers, I noticed something wack. Lea and Dianna’s cover lines both read “on the rumors! gossip! drama!”, but Amber’s cover lines are entirely different: “I show girls how to be comfortable with their bodies.” Huh? Don’t get me wrong — I think it’s awesome that Amber Riley gets a cover and that she’s a role model for curvaceous women and girls of all backgrounds. I just wonder why Marie Claire felt it necessary to point out her body alone. [Oh No They Didn't!] Keep reading »
Sue Sylvester. Pierce Hawthorne. Ann Perkins. They’re showstoppers, that’s for sure, but not for the reason you might be thinking.
You see, sometimes, even great shows have characters that mess with the flow of a seemingly perfect episode. They can bring an entire show to a halt with a scene. It’s a peculiar tale, especially because some of these characters are played by award-winning TV veterans.
We might’ve liked them at first, but the writers have led them astray. Read more… Keep reading »
Last year, when “Glee
” premiered, we were all about New Directions. But this year, we find most of them boring with the exceptions of Brittany
, and Santana
. Nope, this year—like the rest of the country—we are all about The Warblers
. So we were pretty excited when we heard that Kurt, Blaine, and the rest of the prep school jacketed crew would be releasing their own album on April 19. It’ll have their hits from the show, like “Teenage Dream” and “Bills, Bills, Bills,” plus a few new ones. Above, a sneak peak of one new track—the dudes’ take on Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know.”
So who are these guys? Keep reading »
Too adorable for his own good, Chord Overstreet stopped by for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres yesterday and, during their conversation, revealed that he was wearing the gold undies he rocked in the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” episode of “Glee.” Ellen told him to prove it, at which point he unbuttoned his pants and showed off a pair of yellow undies that read “Ellen ‘s got my tight end covered.” He also explained that Chord isn’t at all a stage name—he’s the third child born to musician parents who chose the name because there are three notes in a chord. Cute. Keep reading »
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f**king ‘Glee.’ And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f**king show … f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee’ … The ‘Glee’ guy, what a f**king jerk. Slash was the first one. [Ryan Murphy] wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f**king musicals. It’s worse than “Grease.”’ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f**king do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little a**holes … ’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee.’ Me included.”
– Dave Grohl tells us how he really feels about “Glee” and its creator, Ryan Murphy. I, for one, would totally like to co-sign this statement. I’ve never watched “Glee,” but it doesn’t matter whether it’s the most brilliant show ever made or the most terrible, it is every musician’s right to market their art how they’d like. That doesn’t make them a**holes. Ryan Murphy — okay, and Dave too, with that salty language! — needs to take a chill pill. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
