Ryan Murphy to Kings of Leon: Love Ya!

by at . Comments

All is now good between Ryan Murphy and Kings of Leon. At least the Glee creator hopes that's the case.

A few days after Elton John referred to this band as "assholes" for its refusal to allow Glee to include its hit "Use Somebody" on an episode, Murphy released a statement hoping to end the feud.

"I support artists and what they choose to do... I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit," he wrote." The Foo Fighters are brilliant. We'd love to do one [of] their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it's not their thing, then OK. I personally wish them luck, will still listen to their music."

Did he learn a lesson from this whole debacle? Yes.

"Don't say f**k you to someone in the press," Murphy said.

If it wasn't for Ryan Murphy drudging up all this crap there would be nothing for him to apoligize for. I bet any money that his PR people and the network told him to release the statement as it was bringing the show bad press.

"Don't say f*ck you to anyone in the press" Words to live by, boys and girls.

@Gaby EE: Thank you. I couldn't agree with you more anymore about the feud. It's just stupid that adult men are behaving this way.

@Aries93, I completely agree with you. Hopefully the feud will be over now.

Clearly proves that Ryan Murphy is the better man in this situation.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
