Watch Darren Criss Covering Train's 'Hey, Soul Sister' on 'Glee'

November 25, 2010 04:34:28 GMT


FOX probably learned from the experience that releasing a Darren Criss clip would boost the series' rating. The actor is returning as the Dalton Academy Warblers' lead singer in the November 30 episode of "Glee" and the network gives away a clip of him covering Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" during sectionals.

Criss has been upped to a regular, meaning fans will see more of his presence in the show's third season next year. Part of the excitement about his character Blaine is the fact that he has captured Kurt's heart. "Fans of the show want to see Kurt with somebody and Blaine would be the first natural thought, and people hear what they want to hear," Criss told UsMagazine. "Chris Colfer and I are both equally as curious."

Starting his tantrum at the release party by saying that "everybody needs a villain," Kanye continued, "When you do things like what happened last year, it's disrespectful to everyone that's creative. It's a smack in the face to everyone who tries to do something real. If I wasn't drunk I would have been on stage longer! Am I the only one that's not crazy here? Are you f**king kidding me?"

Paul Weller: Facebook Is a Waste of Time


November 25, 2010 04:08:20 GMT


Rocker Paul Weller will not be joining Facebook any time soon - he's blasted social networking websites as "distracting" and a waste of time. The former The Jam frontman's representatives have set up an account on the popular site to keep fans up-to-date with his album releases and tour dates.

But the singer/songwriter is adamant he avoids using networking websites himself, because he's convinced they have a negative effect on society. Weller takes aim at Facebook in a song on his latest album "Wake Up the Nation", and he tells NME, "I do think that technology is good for certain things, but I do also think that the a**e end of that is there's just a lot of time wasted, staring at a screen, talking to cyber-friends. And I don't get that, really."
