"I come from the most religious family—my grandfather is a priest—and if they support me in all this, and they do, then I'm OK. I'm being sassy and classy; I'm having fun. I'm not coming from a dark place. To be honest with you, I sometimes wish I were more slutty. I'd probably be a lot more successful if I were."
– Nicole Scherzinger, on how sex sells in the music industry, to The Independent.

A MAJOR congrats to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the entire cast of Glee is in order!
After selling over 32 million digital copies of the songs performed on the hit FOX comedy, the cast of Glee has become the No. 8 digital artist of all time!
It's a pretty crazy accomplishment when you think about it. Who would have thought a television show would sell more songs then an actual music artist? It's the best of both worlds in the entertainment biz. All that's left to conquer is the film industry!
