Good morning! You’ve all been listening to the Glee soundtrack nonstop since yesterday’s Golden Globe win for Best Comedy Series, right? Or were you too distracted by how similar in ages (and stunning) Cher and Christina Aguilera looked while presenting? (Seriously, are they selling advance tickets to Burlesque yet?)
Did You Hear?
:: Katy Perry says she’s writing songs about fiance Russell Brand. So look out for “I Kissed a Boy Who Dresses Like a Girl” to be her next single. [Wonderwall]
:: Spinner counts the 20 Greatest Frontmen in Rock. Sorry, Steve Harwell from Smash Mouth, you didn’t make the cut. [Spinner]
:: Toni Braxton sings “Yesterday” for Walmart Soundhceck. [Soundcheck]
:: Is Mariah Carey kidding about creating her own line of champagne? Because if it makes us as giddy as she was during her speech at the Palm Springs Film Fest, we’d never fill our flutes with any other type of booze again. [Dlisted]
:: A (surprisingly chipper) firsthand account of what it’s like to be canceled on by Lady Gaga. [Oh No They Didn't]
:: Eve leaves Interscope and plans her next album release. [That Grape Juice]
Behind the jump: We know Ricky Gervais can make jokes, but did you know he can actually sing?
Music On TV Tonight:
:: Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC) – Weezer
:: Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) – Really Doe (repeat)
:: The Jay Leno Show (NBC) – Ringo Starr & Ben Harper
:: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC) – The Cribs
VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: In honor of Ricky Gervais hosting last night’s Golden Globes, we’re highlighting the British comedian’s most entertaining and enduring contribution to the music field: his 80s pop band Seona Dancing. You can hear Ricky discussing his failed attempt at a music career here, but you don’t want to skip the music video to the Bowie-inspired “Bitter Heart” below. And yes, believe it or not, that really is a much younger, thinner, glammer Ricky Gervais singing lead vocals.
BONUS VID! Because we truly could not pick a favorite between Seona Dancing and David Brent’s cover of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” (in the style of Simply Red) as seen on The Office.
Have a great day, everyone!
