Kings Of Leon Tell “Glee” Creator To Seek Therapy

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy didn’t like the Kings of Leon saying no to having one of their songs Gleeked up on the show last year. “Fuck you, Kings of Leon,” an unrestrained Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter this week. “They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture.”

What big picture you ask, having their song covered on a TV show? No, much more than that. “They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument,” Murphy explained. “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.”

The band doesn’t know what he’s talking about, apparently proving that they indeed have missed the big picture. “This whole Glee thing is a shock to us,” Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill responded to THR. “It’s gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn’t even seen the show…. 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. We just said no to a license for a TV show, which we do a lot.”

Maybe Murphy mistook Kings of Leon for Guns N Roses. Slash famously dissed the show recently in an interview saying, “Glee is worse than ‘Grease’…. When Grease came out I was like, ‘Oh, c’mon, give me a break.’ Actually, I look at ‘Grease’ now and think: ‘Between High School Musical’ and ‘Glee,’ ‘Grease’ was a brilliant work of art.”

Murphy lashed out at Slash too, claiming that hating on “Glee” is a career ending move. “Usually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; they’re uneducated and quite stupid,” Murphy explained.

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill addressed Murphy personally via twitter yesterday, telling him to seek therapy among other helpful suggestions. “Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f—.” [THR]

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
