“The first thing I ever loved in my life was a pigeon,” says Mike in the promo. Keep reading »
is returning to “Glee
” and this time her character, substitute teacher Holly Holiday
, is teaching sex ed. In this clip, she rocks black leather, does a chair dance, and strips down while singing Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch” for Will Schuester and the kids of New Directions. There, oh yeah.
At the same time, Gwyneth Paltrow: The Album is even closer to becoming a reality. Keep reading »
