The Glee Kids Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out, Velvet Vests In Music Video

And to think, just a few short years ago, Jane Lynch’s cough syrup addiction would have allowed the actress to believe that hideous jacket was only a figment of her imagination. It’s the only upside! Today, however,  the Glee “Fashion” music video features the cast promoting NYC’s Fashion Night Out on September 8 by belting out David Bowie‘s ode to the beautiful people.

While some of them look amazing (What, what, Lea Michele in a Balmain mini-dress), other did not, like Lynch and Darren Criss, who spents the entire video locked in a death match with that red three-piece suit over our attention. It goes without saying that Chris Colfer appears to have spent the summer rehearsing his fiercest face with his drama instructor (in addition to dealing with Glee firing rumors) and Heather Morris would look amazing in Hammer pants and our gym t-shirt, which is great since that’s exactly what they had her wearing.

Alec Baldwin Will Run For Mayor Of New York…When He Feels Like It

As America’s favorite capitalist Jack Donaghy once said, “Once I set my mind on something I have to accomplish it. 10 years ago I was one and a half inch shorter than I am today. Pure will-power.” Alec Baldwin‘s run for mayor of New York City might be the actor’s big accomplishment, but just like mentally forcing yourself to get taller, it’s going to take time. Baldwin told the New York Times that he plans to get a Master’s degree in politics and government when his 30 Rock contract is up next year, enrolling in a graduate program in fall 2012. So, if we swear never to vote for him if he leaves our favorite show, can we cancel his campaign before it gets started?

Rumors swirled around Baldwin’s candidacy for the city’s 2013 election following the Anthony Wiener sexting scandal earlier this year, but the actor realizes he has a lot to learn before the subsequent election. “What’s the reality of the city unions, of contracts, agreements, teachers, infrastructure, decentralizing, everything? And utilities, Con Ed, the M.T.A. — how does it all work?” Baldwin muses. Sound like just the things to ponder over a morning shower Scotch.
