Fresh off a Golden Globe win, 'Glee' creator, Ryan Murphy seems to be even more full of himself than usual. After Kings of Leon denied him the use of their songs, he went off on a little tirade in a interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"F--- you, Kings of Leon," Murphy blasted. "They're self-centered a--holes and they missed the big picture." "They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song," Murphy continued,
...which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It's like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of 'Glee' all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."
"Glee" is a lot of things, it certainly isn't arts education.
KOL frontman Caleb Followill responded saying, "This whole 'Glee' thing is a shock to us," he told THR in response to Murphy's rant.
"It's gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn't even seen the show. It came at the end of that record cycle, and we were over promoting ['Use Somebody']. This was never meant as a slap in the face to 'Glee' or to music education or to fans of the show. We're not sure where the anger is coming from."
Drummer Nathan Followill tweeted his own butthead opinion on the matter:
"Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on education 7yr olds how to say fuck."
He later issued an apology, he didn't mean to say those homophobic things, you guys!
This is possibly the stupidest feud ever.
"Usually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; they're uneducated and quite stupid," Murphy also said, this time referring to musician Slash, who called "Glee" "worse than 'Grease' " as far as licensing goes.
Well he's got you there, Ryan. No one wants to hear an autotuned version of "Welcome To The Jungle." Both sides need to get over themselves, especially Ryan Murphy, and go back to making the world a more mediocre place.
