Dave Grohl Slams Glee!

Ugh. And just after all of that nonsense finished with Kings of Leon!

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters has decided to jump on the anti-Glee train, and while promoting his band's new documentary, Back and Forth, at the SXSW festival, he lashed out at the series and its creator, Ryan Murphy, for apparently pressuring various artists to allow their music to be featured!

He explains:

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee. And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show… fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee. I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing. The Glee guy, what a fucking jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate fucking musicals. It’s worse than Grease.’ Then [Murphy's] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they fucking do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes…’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.”

Whoa! Tell us how you really feel!

While we agree that it's every band's right to say yes or no, we frankly can't understand why it's such an issue for some! All Ryan Murphy is trying to do is create a new market for young viewers to be exposed to music that they might not normally be!

But to each his own, we guess! Their music, their call.

What do U think?? Team Dave Grohl or Team Glee?

Check Out Mel Gibson's New Mugshot!

He does not look like a happy camper.

Nor should he. It's about time we saw some remorse for his deplorable behavior.

Instead of attending the SXSW Premiere of his new film, The Beaver, Mel Gibson instead chose to turn himself into the El Segundo Police Department last night to have a new mugshot taken and his thumb prints recorded, in accordance with the no contest to simple battery plea deal he took linked to his abuse of baby mama Oksana Grigorieva last year.

Check out his mugshot (above).

16 hours of community service and 52 weeks of counseling is a pretty lenient sentence, given what he did. We truly hope that he's learned from his horrific mistakes and takes his therapy sessions seriously.

Mel Gibson's Film The Beaver Is Coming To SXSW!

the-beaver-to-be-screened-at-sxsw-film-conference

The world is getting The Beaver, whether they like it or not!

The Jodie Foster-directed drama, which stars Mel Gibson as a troubled man who finds comfort talking to the world through a talking puppet, will make its debut in the SXSW Film Conference on Wednesday, March 16th!

SXSW producer Janet Pierson says:

“Each of these films really showcases an artist stretching his or her wings in some way, whether it be a late-night talk show host taking his act on the road, an actress-filmmaker carefully and beautifully tackling a heartbreaking subject in her finest work yet, or a successful photographer trying out a new medium in a new landscape.”

It hits theaters everywhere else April 8th.

We'll be VERY curious to see how it's received at the festival!

And even MORE curious to see if Mel himself is present for the screening!

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Beaver??
