Poor Little Glee, Slash is Too Cool For You

This is some funny stuff. Everybody has heard of the television show Glee right? The show that has about 10 minutes of thin plot and the rest of the time does exact replicas of famous songs and videos? Like a weekly High School Musical just with less originality.

It seems they approached Slash to do some Guns n' Roses covers for the show and Slash promptly told them to go fuck themselves. Here is the excerpt I found from Blabbermouth.

Slash told Entertainment Weekly he would not like to see "Glee" do a GUNS-themed episode or even have the cast perform one GUNS song. Slash explained, "We got asked about that once already but it got turned down. In the current climate of what's going on in entertainment these days, I try to be more optimistic than negative because it's really easy to get negative about it, but I draw the line at 'Glee'."

Slash added, "'Glee' is worse than 'Grease' and 'Grease' is bad enough . . . Actually, I look at 'Grease' now and think: Between 'High School Musical' and 'Glee', 'Grease' was a brilliant work of art."

Check out the response from Glee creator Ryan Murphy in Rolling Stone after the jump.

"Usually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; they’re uneducated and quite stupid," Murphy said.

Really Ryan? Based on that article do you act like a spoiled bitch everytime someone tells you no? What an ignorant ass you are. Slash will most likely be around long after your trendy show is outgrown. You know what would be cool, is if Glee did a cover of Kids Bop. It's not too much of a stretch.If I was Slash I wouldn't want rich little hipster kids bastardizing songs that were not intended for their demographic either.
