Fast Facts Friday

“Glee” is Back… and Then Some: I take a deep breath before I say this BUT….the magic that “Glee” once had has slowly dwindled since the original cast graduated. The new characters are cute, talented, and have some of that same adorable annoyingness, but there has been something missing since Rachel turned sexpot and Mr. Shu bit the dust. The ratings have since taken a hit, and part of me was okay with my once favorite show, singing its sawn song in the new future (PUN intended). Perhaps it was their mega win at The People’s Choice Awards, or the fact that Murphy and crew aren’t ready to send their baby off into the horizon, but Fox has announced that “Glee” is going to be picked up for season 5, AND the idea of spin-offs haven’t been canned yet! I’m actually hoping that the Rachel/Kurt NYC love affair is moved to a completely different show, and “Glee” could once again be about the relatable awkward high school misfits and not about musical prodigies living their dreams in the big city.

Oscar Nominees Announced: It was much of the same at this year’s Oscar Award Nominee announcement party. Movies we never heard of lead the way in nominations, and ones we have heard of, but wish we hadn’t, leave us scratching our heads with how they may walk away with a golden statue. To brief, “Lincoln” leads the pack with 12 nominations, “Life of Pi” followed close behind with 11, and “Les Miserables” and “Silver Lining Playbook” round out the top three, tying with 8 nominations.

Kardashian Kids Take Over: OK, let us get this one over with as fast as we can. Kim’s pregnant with (ughhh) Kanye’s baby. Moving on…

Bieber Fans Take Things Too Far: With any pre-teen, flash in the pan groupies, girlfriend hating fan clubs, and trending topics are not unusual, but Justin Bieber’s fan base took things too far when they decided to create a self-harming protest against Bieber smoking week. After TMZ published pictures of the singer smoking weed, fans took to Twitter to start the #cut4bieber trending topic, hoping to get Bieber’s attention. “Let’s start a cut yourself for Bieber campaign. Tweet a bunch of pictures of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because Bieber was smoking weed. See if we can get some little girls to cut themselves.” While many would ignore such a ridiculous and idiotic comment, many immature and naïve girls took the suggestion to heart and started the trend. Although some pictures posted were of fans cutting paper or cake, others did post gruesome self-harm pictures. The topic unsurprising outraged many and the initial tweeted was taken down. Bieber has released no comment thus far.

Taylor Swift’s Biggest Revenge: Call it repetitive, annoying, or old news, but you’ll be singing it non-stop in two months. After a break-up with One Direction’s, Harry Styles, earlier this week, Taylor Swift did what she does best…she wrote a song about it. After stepping out on The People’s Choice Award’s red carpet looking stunning in a neck plunging white gown, Taylor tweeted out “Back in the studio. Uh oh…” Uh-oh is right Harry, get ready to feel the $52 million wrath of Ms. Swift.

Old School Musicians, Ready to Make a Return: Just when I thought the music industry was on its way down the toilet, with One Direction, Nicki Minaj, and Gangam Style swirling down with it, we were hit with some epic comeback news. Tweeting a pic of him in the studio was Justin Timberlake’s way of announcing that he was bringing sexy back to music, and Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams announced that they have decided to put their solo careers aside and make new Destiny’s Child ear candy. And how will they introduce the world to these joyous harmonies? At the Super Bowl of course!!! The trio’s performance is rumored to be the headline at the February half-time show! Oh please let this be true!!!!
