For a while, it had been well known that there was bad blood between Glee creator Ryan Murphy and Kings of Leon.
Then back in February, Gwyneth Paltrow mediated a truce between Ryan and the band via text messages.
Now, it looks like Murphy has taken further measures to bury the hatchet with the band by publicly apologizing to them:
“I didn’t speak with as much clarity as I would have liked. Who am I to say ‘F**k you?’ That’s not what I meant. I completely understand when artists don’t want a show or another artist to interpret their songs. In fact, I respect it. It’s their personal work and I’d feel the same way. We get turned down all the time and I don’t fight it or even go back after a rejection.”
“I’ve never felt that if you don’t give Glee your music, there’s something diabolical about you. To the contrary: I support artists and what they choose to do…I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit. The Foo Fighters are brilliant. We’d love to do one if their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it’s not their thing, then OK. I personally wish them luck and will still listen to their music."
We certainly give Ryan credit for making such a strong effort to make peace with Kings of Leon.
Hopefully everything will be cool between them from here on out…and who knows? MAYBE one day Kings of Leon will let Glee perform some of their music! Maybe…
Do U think Ryan Murphy made the right move by apologizing publicly to Kings of Leon? Do U think they'll EVER allow him to use their songs On Glee?
