  1. LMFAO splitting up makes sense to me. its kind of always been about RedFoo. he’s done tons of work outside the group.

    the Glee episode was just horrible. im not even a fan of BS & i think they took it too far. that wasnt any kind of tribute. and even without the mocking..it was just a horrible episode. (except when brittany said she wasnt taking to her cat because she knew he joined a gang..that gave me a good laugh)

  2. Aw, I thought Britney 2.0 was superior to BritneyBrittany.

    For once, it actually had a plot and pushed forward the character’s story. As far as the Britney breakdown thingy goes, it’s classic Glee! Within Glee’s heighten musical reality, they don’t take themselves too serious (when they do, they fail because not only is it not funny but they get this after-school special kind of feel). In the episode Ricky Martin guest-starred, Glee basically spent 45 minutes projecting misconceptions about the Hispanic culture as part of their plot. And so it goes with other theme episodes. It’s what they do.

    I can understand why some Britney fans may take it the other way and not take it from the humorous side, especially if they don’t usually follow Glee, but I thought it was funny. I thought the covers had wonderful arrangements as well. In my opinion, Glee is back for the better so far this season.
