OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder Praises 'Glee'


Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic


The OneRepublic's frontman is convinced the hit TV series will encourage youngsters to embrace their musical talents.

Singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder has praised TV bosses for broadcasting "Glee" - because he's convinced the show will encourage more young men to embrace their musical talents. The OneRepublic frontman admits he was taunted by bullies at school because of his love of musical theater, and he hopes "Glee" will help remove the stigma so more wannabe stars will feel able to sing and dance without fear of ridicule.

He says, "I was in Some Like It Hot at school, playing one of the guys who dressed up as a woman. Being a 17 year old in Oklahoma in drag is not easy. I hope Glee makes the whole thing not as taboo, makes people more interested and less afraid."

Ryan Tedder is currently busy working with Katy Perry and Paul Oakenfold. On his project with Perry, he told MTV, "One song is, like, the evolution of 'Hot N Cold,' that kind of thing. ... The other two literally sound like something you would hear in the mid-'90s at a roller-rink skating party."
