Bruno Mars Brings Back Darren Criss’ “Broccoli Head” Look On SNL, And We Still Love It

Darren Criss on Glee and Bruno Mars on SNL

Now that Klaine are splitsville on Glee (temporarily, we hope!) we’re looking forward to seeing what kind of transformations Kurt and Blaine go through while coping with their emotional distress. And hoping that means at some point Darren Criss will bring back the gel-less “Broccoli Head” look he sported at prom. We were reminded of what a nice change it is to see guys sport their natural curls on Saturday night, when Bruno Mars ditched his usual pompadour for a bushier ‘do as the host and musical guest on SNL. Maybe that was partly due to the fact that it made no sense to sculpt his hair ever so carefully just minutes before stuffing it into a wig. But we’d also like to think this is part of a new trend. Free your locks from their stiff product prison, gentlemen! Ring in the new era of curl!

We were going to credit Darren with this trend at first, but then we spotted a few Tumblrs dedicated to the adorable Mr. Mars (who made a pretty decent comedian this weekend, if you ask us). Turns out, the very week that Blaine was forced to go natural at prom, Bruno also sported curls at the Met Costume Gala. Spooky! (Not really.) Read more…

Happy Spirit Day! 10 Bullies Who Learned Their Lesson

Mean Girls, Back to the Future, Heathers and Glee

Happy Spirit Day, everyone! If you’re not wearing purple today, you can still show your support for bullied victims and LGBT youth in all sorts of other ways (visit for some ideas). We decided to mark this occasion with a look back at the meanest and cruelest bullies of pop culture who got their glorious comeuppance before our very eyes. From Heathers and Back to the Future to Pretty Little Liars and Glee, watching the likes of Heather and Biff get put in their place has made us feel much better about our own torturers. Maybe they even made a few real-life bullies think twice about what they were doing. We hope so!

Michael Trevino, Tyler Blackburn, Stephen Amell And Other TV Hotties Short Circuit Our Brain With This Pic

Stephen Amell, Jay Ryan, Stephen R. McQueen, Dylan O'Brien, Harry Shum Jr., Tyler Blackburn, Justin Hartley, Taylor Kinney and Michael Trevino

I first saw this photo this morning on Arrow star Stephen Amell‘s Facebook feed (like it, you won’t be sorry), and no kidding, all work stopped for a full five minutes. I’m surprised there’s no brain matter splattered on my screen right now. In case you haven’t yet committed the fall TV schedule to memory, here’s who they are, from left to right: Amell, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries), Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Justin Hartley (Emily Owens, M.D.), Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) and Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries). The spread is actually from Bullett Media, who decided to explode our hearts too, by gathering these guys’ quotes about what they look for in a woman.

“I judge a woman purely on how she looks first thing in the morning. That’s the critical point, right?” Amell says. OK, so he’s not all that romantic. But points for honesty!

“If a girl doesn’t get along with my dog, then we’ve got a problem,” McQueen says.

Our personal favorite is from Tyler Blackburn: “I enjoy a certain amount of decadence in my life, so I want to be with someone who shares an appreciation for the finer things. And if that finer thing happens to be fried, well, put it in your mouth.” We’re totally down with that one.

For the rest of the guys’ quotes (especially a surprising revelation from Taylor Kinney, a.k.a. Lady Gaga’s main squeeze), head over to Bullett.

Britney Spears Learns “Gangnam Style” Vs. Glee‘s “Call Me Maybe”: Battle Of The Memes

Glee's Heather Morris, Psy teaches Britney Spears Gangnam Style

This is a rare moment in Internet trends — for me at least. Usually, by the time a meme goes mainstream, those of us who basically live online are sick of it. But somehow, I’m still not tired of seeing famous people dance to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style” dance is still as infectious as ever. But after this morning’s versions of both of those phenoms — courtesy of Ellen and Glee we think everyone else should give up. First, we have Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres learning “Gangnam Style” from the master himself:

Four things about this: Psy is the most charming man on Earth. Britney deserves the Good Sport prize for dancing in those shoes. Britney also makes the best “concentrating” face. But we think Ellen is actually maybe better at Gangnam Style than Britney.

And next we have the remaining New Directions on Glee, not lip-synching to “Call Me Maybe” as per the usual meme, but covering it:

Glee‘s New Guy Dean Geyer: Everything You Should Know About Rachel’s New Crush

Dean Geyer will join Glee

A new promo video came out yesterday that gave us our most comprehensive sneak peek yet of what Glee’s fourth season will look like when it premieres on September 13 — and it gave us a really good look at the show’s newest stars, Kate Hudson, Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, Becca Tobin and Dean Geyer. We’ll get around to talking about the others soon enough, but today we wanted to learn a little more about Dean, the NYADA student who appears to be a big threat to Rachel and Finn’s long-distance relationship. Before Finchel fans start throwing things at the guy, let’s learn a little more about this easy-on-the-eyes actor.

  • The 26-year-old actor/musician was born in Johannesburg and moved to Australia when he was 15.
  • He didn’t start playing music until he was 18, but by the time he was 20, he blew away the judges with his audition for Australian Idol in 2006. He finished in third place. Here’s his audition video:

Glee Season Four Updates: Where’s Quinn At, And Can Kate Hudson Pull Off J.Lo?

Glee Season Four Promotional Shot, Where's Quinn Fabray

Little did Ryan Murphy know that by tweeting this photograph, Gleek Armageddon would ensue. It may look like a simple promotional shot of Glee’s new upcoming season (season four), but one very important element is missing — Dianna Agron‘s character, Quinn Fabray. We all know that she wanted to head off to Yale for college, but does this mean that she’s dunzo on the show? Not so much, tweeted Ryan. “Gleeks, please relax. Dianna is still on the show. We love her and have great plans for Quinn, ” he wrote , also adding the hashtag, “Quinn Fabray Lives.” So there you have it. Dianna’s still there, so crisis averted.

The upcoming season is already looking exciting, as Murphy has been tweeting up a storm, passing around pictures of behind the scenes shots and guest stars. We’ve already seen Darren Criss as Robin, Sarah Jessica Parker as the fictional as editor Isabelle Klempt and of course, Kate Hudson as Lea Michele‘s tough dance instructor, Cassandra July. Speaking of which, a video was released yesterday as a sneak peek into Hudson’s very sexy-looking role, and she’s taking on Jennifer Lopez‘s Dance Tonight in a song and dance routine. Can she pull it off? You can be judge of that when you take a look at the video after the jump.  Read more…

First Look At Sarah Jessica Parker On Glee – Just Another Example Of The Show’s Marketing Genius

Chris Colfer, Sarah Jessica Parker on Glee

We’re starting to be convinced that Ryan Murphy and the rest of the folks behind Glee are mad marketing geniuses. Whether or not the very experimental fourth season actually succeeds when it premieres — with its brand-new format (the show-within-the-show), brand-new time slot (Thursdays at 9) and brand-new settings (NYC!) — remains to be seen. But they’ve certainly managed to build our excitement for the show’s return on September 13. The latest spark to our enthusiastic flame is the above photo, which Murphy tweeted, showing guest-star Sarah Jessica Parker as editor Isabelle Klempt, who will be Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) boss. As if we weren’t already thrilled to see Carrie Bradshaw get another shot at Vogue success (remember her column for the mag? And what happened after her wedding gown shoot?), it’s super cool to know that Ms. Anna Wintour herself is behind SJP’s costumes for the role. Can’t have a fake Vogue editor wearing just anything, can we?

All this is coming on the heels of Lea Michele’s provocative Nylon cover, a fun set visit story from Vulture, Murphy’s other tweets of Darren Criss dressed as Robin and Kate Hudson as Rachel’s dance teacher, and all those photos of Lea and Cory Monteith traipsing around New York. All we need are some actual clips and you can consider us whipped into a frenzy.

Lea Michele Gets Catty On The Cover Of Nylon

Lea Michele On The Cover Of "Nylon" Magazine

We’re kidding, guys. By getting catty, we meant that awesome kitty-ears headband Lea Michele has on, on her Nylon magazine September cover. The snippets from the interview given are pretty meaty, but we feel a little let down by her take on her relationship with Glee castmate Cory Monteith. We were expecting a ton of backstory and juicy details. C’mon, everyone loves a good story! When asked about her “relationships on and offscreen” she replied, “We were Finn and Rachel before–I feel like they come first.” Okay … what does that even mean! More, Lea, more! The next bit we found quite interesting, is when Nylon asked about all those rumors swirling around about Lea being a total diva. Like when she blew off Hailee Steinfeld. Or when she gave attitude to society photographer Patrick McMullan. Stories like that don’t just come out of nowhere. She addresses the talk by saying, “I think I was fighting so hard to change [representations of my personality], that I was not really being myself. [But] I came to a place where I’m much happier personally in my life and because of that I really don’t feel like I need to explain anything or be anything. I’m really proud of who I am.” Which doesn’t deny the fact that she’s a diva, at all. But hey, if she’s “really proud” of who she is — then that’s the way it’s going to be.

Darren Criss Is The Most Stylish Robin Ever For Glee

Darren Criss As Robin On "Glee" Set

We love the number of sneak peeks Glee creator Ryan Murphy gives us of the show via his Twitter account. He recently gave us a look at a very gorgeous Kate Hudson filming her guest spot for the show. His latest tweet has given us an insight as of what to expect from the annual Halloween episode. At least, that’s what we think it is. Check out the photograph above of the lovely Darren Criss dressed up as Robin. The message along with the photograph read, “Who is that masked man keeping crime away from the halls of McKinley?” He should have added a “bam!” and a “kapow!” for good measure. What we’re loving most of all is that if you look closer, you’ll see that Darren’s also got a bow-tie around his collar! Considering they did an entire episode in homage to Rocky Horror Picture Show around Halloween in 2010, one would think this is the key to what they’re planning this year, right? We’d really like more details, but have a feeling this is all we’re going to get for some time. More importantly, if Darren is Robin, we really want to know who Batman is? Any guesses, Gleeks?

Your First Look At A Very Sexy Kate Hudson On Glee

Kate Hudson First Look On "Glee"

Wow! How amazing does Kate Hudson look in this shot? Sexy, tousled hair, a black leotard and fishnets, and the guy she’s holding on to ain’t half-bad either. The picture was tweeted by director Ryan Murphy who accompanied the snap with a message that reads, “From FOX: Kate Hudson in action. GLEE S4 premieres Thurs., Sept. 13 at 9p!” Hudson’s playing Rachel Berry’s ( Lea Michele) dance teacher on the show and Jane Lynch (who plays coach Sue Sylvester) spilled the beans about her character to E! saying, ” I hear she’s doing just great and I read the scripts and they’re hilarious. She’s mean and petty and yet there’s a heart there too. She’s really good. She gives Rachel a really hard time.”

Murphy also tweeted a photograph of Kate with Lea a little over two weeks ago, writing, “GLEE exclusive: msleamichele and Kate Hudson on the NYADA set. Kate had chandelier approval.” You can see the photograph right after the jump. Do you think Kate and Glee are going to make a good fit? We have a feeling she’s going to be awesome! Remember her song-and-dance routine on Nine? She was pretty smoking then, and by the looks of the picture above, she’s going to be pretty smoking on the series as well. Read more…
