Rosie O'Donnell has always been known for her opinions and stances on any and every issue, so we are not surprised in the least to get her view on both the Miley Cyrus/Billy Ray story from earlier in the week, and some thoughts on Glee!
Let's start off with Glee:
"I have to believe that [‘Glee’ co-creators] Ryan [Murphy] and Brad [Falchuk] have something up their sleeve and that [Lauren] can really sing because ‘I Know What Boys Like’ last night was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a whole Shrek-like reveal where [Puck, played by Mark Salling] becomes Fiona-ish."
“I just was like, ‘Where’s the Susan Boyle moment? She’s gonna belt it out of the park!’ and then she did, ‘I know what boys like, I know what guys want’? I was like, ‘I want more than this.’"
For those of you who don't watch Glee, she's referring to the new full-figured character Lauren Zizes. She's speaking on behalf of those who the character would resonate with, and the lack of a vocal-explosion!
We'd have to agree with you on this one, Rosie! While we enjoyed Lauren's performance, we thought it should have completely wowed us!
Maybe it's coming??!
That wasn't all Rosie had to talk about, she also weighed in on the issue of Miley's Dad saying that Disney had ruined his family and daughter.
This is what she had to say about that:
“A 16 or 18-year-old girl is going to separate from the parents no matter what,” Rosie told Access. “They’re going to smoke some salvia — whatever the hell that is — they’re going to drink some beer. This is what happens when kids are 18 and they’re trying to separate.
“So, I don’t know that it necessarily had to do with [Miley] being in show business,” she continued. “I think he’s doing what a lot of us are doing that have teenagers, including me, [saying], ‘What the hell is going on here? I thought I was in control of this place and now the kids are acting out. The animals are ruining the zoo!’”
We think that's pretty much spot-on. We don't, however, condone underage drug and alcohol consumption at all, whether it unavoidable or not!
Rosie, bb, keep givin' us what you think!
And what do U think??
