Dave Grohl Talks 'Glee' Diss On 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)
Dave Grohl may not have meant for his "F*ck you" to "Glee" to get out in public, but he sure doesn't seem to regret it.
The Foo Fighters front man appeared on "Chelsea Lately" on Wednesday night and, among other things, addressed the emphatic kiss-off he gave to Ryan Murphy and his high school musical dramedy back in March during the show's tit-for-tat with the Kings of Leon.
"I read somewhere that the creator of 'Glee,' who I never met, and I've really only watched three minutes of the show, I don't really watch TV... I read something where he was kind of mouthing off about some friends of mine in rock bands," Grohl explained. "And I just felt like, you know, as a musician, you should be able to say no, should be able to say I don't want to do your show, you should be able to say I dont want to do anything that someone tells me to do."
Well, right. That's what rock n' roll is all about. So, about these comments:
"It's every band's right, you shouldn't have to do f*cking 'Glee,'" 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 f*cking show... f*ck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do 'Glee.'"
Here's how Grohl explained them:
"I was doing an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, I didn't realize it was some TV hollywood thing, I was talking to some dude and I said f*ck 'Glee.' Why should you have to do it?" he said. "Why is that necessary for you to have to do, as a rock musician, why should you have to say okay glee, take my song and turn it into a f*cking musical."
Guy makes a point.
