Members of the rock band Kings of Leon and the creator of the hit show Glee are having a war of words — whose side are you on?
When Kings of Leon turned down Glee saying they couldn’t use their songs in an episode, they made a powerful enemy – Glee creator Ryan Murphy! Ryan spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and was not very friendly when it came to the rockers, “”F*** you, Kings of Leon.” he said “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, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument.”
This caused drummer Nathan Followill to tweet: “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***.” The tweet has been deleted and Nathan apologized for his comments but not before Murphy called Nathan’s comments homophopic.
I thought Glee was supposed to be a happy show? I guess this is a warning to all musicians out there — let Glee use your music or else!
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Whose side are you on?
