KOL Vs Glee!
The war of words between Kings Of Leon and Glee creator Ryan Murphy is getting nasty!
The beef started when Kings Of Leon passed on the opportunity for their song ‘Use Somebody’ to be featured on the hit series because they didn’t want to appear to have ‘sold out’ according to mtv.com.
Well Ryan had a few choice words to say about that in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"F--- you, Kings of Leon," Murphy told the magazine. "They're self-centered a--holes, and they missed the big picture. You can make fun of 'Glee' all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."
Caleb responded to the mag:
“This whole 'Glee' thing is a shock to us," Followill said. "It's gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn't even seen 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."
On Wednesday, KOL’s drummer Nathan shot back with a much less restrained response.
"Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go," Followill tweeted. "See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f---."
Now Ryan, not to be outdone, has fired back, condemning Nathan for what he deemed homophobic comments.
"Just read Nathan Followill's Tweet," he told Perez Hilton. "In which he implied I should 'get a manicure and buy a bra.' Wow. That's a homophobe badly in need of some education. I'm all for manicures, don't wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don't. But it's telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliché, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred like this."
Nathan quickly backtracked tweeting, "I'm sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or misogynistic. I'm so not that kind of person. I really do apologize."
KOL aren’t the only one’s to feel Ryan’s wrath. The director also unloaded on guitar legend Slash for saying, “Glee' is worse than 'Grease,' and 'Grease' is bad enough."
Ryan responded: “Usually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; they're uneducated and quite stupid."
