Glee to Get Its Own Music Awards Show; Suicide Rate Likely to Increase

Posted By on Fri, May 20, 2011 at 1:05 PM

Yesterday, Perez Hilton announced (in his usual fawning,

sycophantic way) that this year -- on May 31, to be precise -- there will be a Glee music awards show. We now officially feel like the cast of that

show is so damn ubiquitous, its members might as well be breaking into our homes at

night and slapping us in the face with their stupid jazz hands.


Seriously. What is it with these kids? Isn't it enough that

we already have to deal with their grinning faces and big musical gestures at

every other award ceremony on the planet? They show up at everything: Golden

Globes, Emmy's, Grammy's, VMAs, Teen Choice, Screen Actor's Guild, blah, blah,

blah -- it is impossible to get away from these people.

We're surprised they haven't found a way to muscle on in to

the Academy Awards yet. Oh wait. Our bad. They've already bagged Oscar-winner

Gwyneth Paltrow as a much-publicized guest star on the show and they're moving

into movie-land in August. And it's going to be in 3-D as well, by the way, in

case you want to see all that sickly, feel-good crap up close and personal.

Freakin' yay.

We get it. People like the show (not us... but, you know,

millions of other less irritable people who like musicals and crap), but having

an awards ceremony specifically all about you is one of the most horrifying

cases of self-congratulatory back-slapping we've ever heard of. The fact that

they already win awards everywhere else makes it especially obnoxious.

Since voting -- categories include Song Of The Season, Best

Duet and Best Solo Female -- is going to be conducted via,

which is also "exclusively hosting the event," it's highly likely that all of

this is simply a cross-marketing stunt and a way for the gossip king to get traffic

up on his website. But, oh, what an annoying way to do it. And Glee -- or at

the very least, Fox -- would've no doubt had to endorse this charade, like the

show needs even more publicity. What's next? American Idol Awards? That's all

a bunch of vomit-inducing cover versions as well, after all.


Sure, we won't be tuning in to watch this nonsense. As we

won't be tuning in to watch Glee any time soon (we tried that once, but nausea

got the best of us). But, we are seriously sick of how relentlessly this TV show

forces itself down our throats at every opportunity. At this point, it's even worse than Jersey Shore for that -- and way more gross to watch most of the time, which is quite a feat.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
