Ryan Murphy Calls Kings of Leon ‘Assholes’

Glee creator Ryan Murphy is a sensitive man. He asked Kings of Leon to use their song “Use Somebody” on the show but when they said no, he felt they insulted him and basically slapped the face of arts education. Via Us:

“F*** you, Kings of Leon,” Murphy tells The Hollywood Reporter. “They’re self-centered a**holes, and they missed the big picture.”

Charging that the band insulted his FOX smash with a “hate on arts education” message, he continued angrily: “They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”

Kings of Leon responded:

“This whole Glee thing is a shock to us. It’s gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn’t even see the show. It came at the end of that record cycle, and we were over promoting [‘Use Somebody’]. This was never meant as a slap in the face to Glee or to music education or to fans of the show. We’re not sure where the anger is coming from.”

At that point, the members of Kings of Leon backed away slowly because Ryan Murphy sounds mental. Calm down, you psycho. It sounds like they raped Ryan’s dog or something. I’m surprised Ryan didn’t chase them down while swinging a tasseled baton menacingly in the air while simultaneously crying/yelling, “Why! Why would you do this to me?!”

7 year old kids watch Glee? God, I hope not.

The parent that lets their preteen watch Glee is the type that will think that “Ron Jeremy’s Greatest Hits” will be the perfect educational tape for sex. You know, when the kids are old enough, like say 8.
