The Morning Mix: Green Day And ‘Glee’ To Rock The Tony Awards

Did You Hear?

:: The Tony Awards will feature performances by Green Day (whose American Idiot is up for Best Musical) and Glee‘s Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison (who are just hanging out on Broadway for old time’s sake). Whatever Lea and Matthew perform, please, please Matthew—don’t rap. [Zap 2 It]

:: In the latest chapter of M.I.A. vs. Lynn Hirschberg (aka The Truffle Kerfuffle), the New York Times has printed a correction to their original unflattering interview with the singer, stating that some of Maya’s quotes were presented out of context. Can we all move on from this now? (We’re looking right at you, M.I.A.) [Spinner]

:: Meet one really, really unlikely Justin Bieber fan—a 34-year old male forklift driver who paid a lot of money to get “BIEBER” license plates. [PopEater]

:: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale spent $15,000 on their son Kingston’s 4th birthday party—$100 on a cake, and $14,900 on a birthday clown dipped in solid gold. [Us]

:: Ke$ha has outdone herself, wearing what just might be the ugliest pair of pants/leggings we’ve ever seen. If this is what pop stars choose to cover their legs, we’d really much prefer for them all to continue going pantsless. [Go Fug Yourself]
