Singer-songwriter Sir Elton John thinks
artists who don't want their music played on the Fox musical-comedy
Glee need to lighten up.
The Foo Fighters are the latest rock
stars to say “no” to Glee creator Ryan Murphy.
“It's every band's right, you
shouldn't have to do fucking Glee,” Foo Fighters frontman
Dave Grohl told The Hollywood Reporter. “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. … It's not my thing.”
Guns N' Roses frontman Slash called
Glee “worse than Grease” in
turning down the show.
on NBC's late night talk show The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon,
Sir Elton railed against the artists.
“There's a big
debate going on about the Glee thing at the moment. A lot of
bands say we don't want our stuff on Glee. Like lighten up you
assholes,” Sir Elton said.
“This is a
compliment,” he added. “Also it sends a positive message out.
What the hell is wrong with you guys.”
