Why Naya Rivera’s death has made me so emotional

Naya Rivera in Glee

It’s weird, isn’t it? How celebrity deaths can really affect you, even though you didn’t even know them personally. Well, that’s how I’m feeling about Naya Rivera.

Goodbye to Glee: Thoughts on the finale

glee4

I’ve finally managed to watch the last two episodes of Glee EVER. I had been ready for the end for a while and since about season four, I had been saying it should end soon so I’m glad they decided to end it before it got too ridiculous (it was certainly heading that way!) and the ending was perfect. Usually, when a show I love ends I find many things wrong with it but it was brilliant – the future lives of the Glee club made sense, the dedication to Finn Hudson/Cory Monteith brought me to tears and the future for Will Schuester and New Directions was sweet too.

Goodbye to Glee: The Best Bits

glee

Glee comes to an end with a double-bill on Friday night and although I haven’t been loving it for a while, I’m still a bit sad. A lot has happened in those six seasons and this is a show I used to really, really enjoy. I’m happy they are ending it now as they are running out of steam – in fact, I would have been happy with them leaving it at the end of season five – BUT the end is nigh so rather than talking negatively about the show, I am going to celebrate it with my list of highlights:

My thoughts on: Glee’s 100th episode

glee4

So Glee marked its 100th episode last week and part two aired this week – and it was strange because it really feels like the end. How it was left at the end of this episode feels so final, like it should have been a season finale or the final ever episode.

The Glee club as we know it is over and I’m quite happy about that in a way because I have been enjoying the New York scenes more and I have been finding the the choir room and auditorium musical numbers pretty tiresome. It just seems weird that it has happened because New Directions used to be the focus of the show and that will shift entirely from the next episode onwards.

Big Pics: Keira Knightley, Rita Ora & Matt Smith

Keira Knightley

Keira smooches with her new husband James Righton on their honeymoon in Corsica. The pair got married 10 days ago.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy was MEAN to pal Amy Poehler by sending her a ton of shots. She captioned the pics with: “I’m kind of a bitch”. You said it! Poor Amy.

Zayn Malik

One Direction’s Zayn Malik was abused while sleeping by girlfriend Perrie Edwards. She gave him a funky set of nails, which I totally love. I doubt he will appreciate it though- especially his sleeping face being shown to millions!

Calvin Harris & Rita Ora

Are Rita and Calvin dating?! It may not be obvious in this picture but the one below certainly hints at it! The pair were spotted at a Daft Punk album party.

Cara Delevigne

Cara has got herself a massive tattoo of a lion on her finger! Bit random. Best of luck to magazines- they’ll have to add that to the photoshop list!

Glee

The Glee cast seemed to be having a great time at the FOX Upfronts presentation in New York last night. L-R: Darren Criss (Blaine), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Lea Michele (Rachel), Jane Lynch (Sue), Kevin McHale (Artie), Matthew Morrison (Mr Shu) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina). Love them!

Matt Smith

What a transformation! Matt looks like a total thug. He has seriously got into his role in the upcoming How To Catch A Monster- the directorial debut from Ryan Gosling. You can see Mr G in the car below.

Cory Monteith is out of rehab!

cory

Cory Monteith was spotted at LAX airport with girlfriend Lea Michele yesterday- so he must be out of rehab!

The Glee star went to a treatment centre for substance abuse on April 1st after he suffered a relapse. He left yesterday and judging by these exclusive pictures from E!, he looks very well.

Since the season of Glee is now finished, it would seem the pair are heading off for a much-needed holiday. It just such a shame we couldn’t see a Finchel reunion at the end of season four!

Cory also tweeted for the first time in weeks thanking his supporters. He wrote; “Sending out big love to everyone. Thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! :)”

Bless him! Everyone from friends, family, fans and cast supported him and that obviously helped him get better so soon. He really does look healthy and I’m so happy that our cute Glee couple are reunited!

Big Pics: Beyoncé, Bieber & Gwyneth Paltrow

Beyoncé

Check out B holding her daughter really awkwardly. Blue Ivy and Jay-Z were in Paris to support Bey at her show in the capital as part of the Mrs Carter Show tour. She still look good fresh-faced but it’s nice to know she gets frizzy hair too!

Rumour has it that Beyoncé has banned press photographers from her shows and will approve every photo before release to make sure she doesn’t look bad. At least we know she’s insecure!

Justin Bieber

Another day, another tattoo for Bieber. He has got so many recently! They are all on the same arm so he must be working his way up to a sleeve. The new additions are the tiger head at the top and the angel near his wrist, which many people believe looks like Selena Gomez. What do you think?

Glee

Glee celebrated wrapping season four with his amazing cake! Here you can see Naya Riviera (Santana) and Heather Morris (Brittany). It looks so tasty!

Michelle Rodriquez

michelle

I’m not used to seeing her wearing pretty clothes. Normally she is being bad-ass and not wearing anything particularly noteworthy. She opened up about her past mistakes saying: “I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression. I rebel against everything, including myself. I’m like, ‘oh no, lemme do something f****d up now’. But then I’m like, ‘okay, what am I doing to myself”‘”.

Michelle is a perfect example to Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes that you can get through your problems. Michelle went to jail a number of times between 2004-2008 through bad driving and alcohol problems. She has not committed another crime since her release in 2008. If she can do it, you can do it too guys!

Gwyneth Paltrow

I don’t particularly like this dress, but it is very interesting because Gwyneth usually dresses pretty classy. This is completely sheer down the sides and it is obvious she is not wearing underwear- it skims her butt cheeks! This is so unlikely Gwyn. She definitely turned heads at the LA premiere of Iron Man 3.

Glee’s Cory Monteith heads to rehab for substance addiction

cory4

What a shocker! I honestly thought this was an April Fool’s joke but sadly, it’s true. Glee’s Cory Monteith has checked into rehab for substance addiction.

His rep announced the news on Sunday night but would not clarify the nature of his addiction, so we don’t any specifics.

They said: “Cory has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”

cory1

The 30-year-old played Finn Hudson in the FOX TV series. His co-star and real-life girlfriend, Lea Michele, added her own statement, saying. “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”

Bless her! It must have been hard working together and being together with this going on. I wonder if the crew on Glee noticed and if it started to affect his work. It is thought that he will miss the filming of the final two episodes of season four, but the writers will think up a reason for Finn to be absent. I guess we aren’t getting a Finchel reunion for the finale then!

cory3

I am so glad he is done this for himself though. I was really shocked because I thought he was so clean-living, but then I looked into his history and he has actually been to rehab before he was famous. He had a drug and alcohol addiction after dropping out of school at 16, and by 19, his family sent him to a treatment centre. He obviously doesn’t want to go back to how he was before, so is getting help before he gets too bad.

This is a really sad story but he has a lot of support and he has been in that situation before, so he will be strong enough to fight it.

Zachary Quinto confirms he’s dating Jonathon Grofff

Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has finally confirmed his relationship with Glee actor Jonathon Groff.

The pair have been seen together a number of times but nothing was ever official. In an interview with Out magazine, Quinto talks about his relationship saying, “I’m incredibly happy, I’m incredibly lucky”.

It is unknown how long the Heroes actor, 35, has been dating the Glee star (he plays recurring character Jesse St James).

He also admitted that he had trouble finding a partner because and ended up in therapy to help him work out his commitment problems.

“I found myself in a pattern of being attracted to people who were somehow unavailable, and what I realised was that I was protecting myself because I equated the idea of connection and love with trauma and death.”

He continued, “I had to do a lot of work on the couch to really get to a place where I was able to show up to a relationship with someone who was actually capable of being in one—and that took a lot of trial and error. And I’m still working on all that stuff—that will never stop.”

Well, I’m glad he has managed to sort himself out because Zachary and Jonathon look like a perfect match!

Glee Season 4 Promos!

Check out the full cast picture for Glee Season Four:

(see bigger image here)

This gives away exactly who is returning and who is missing. Diana Agron, who played Quinn Fabray, is most obviously missing but don’t fret people! Show creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to calm down Gleeks who panicked when she was a no-show on the poster, saying, “Gleeks, please relax.Dianna is still on the show. We love her and have great plans for Quinn. #QuinnFabrayLives”

There is a new character which looks very similar to Quinn- the one to the left of the signpost. The cheerleader’s name is Kitty and she is played by Becca Tobin. The other new girl is Marley. Both of these new characters will begin as recurring roles.

There are two new boys in the picture- the one of the left is actor Jacob Artist, who will be a series regular as Puck’s half-brother Jake, who just starts at McKinley High. The guy on the far right is Dean Geyer, another season regular for the New York portion of the show. He plays Brody, a NYADA upperclassman who has an interest in Rachel.

Obviously, we KNOW that Kate Hudson is joining the season for six episodes. She will be Rachel’s mean NYADA dance instructor named Cassandra. Sarah Jessica Parker will have a multi-episode arc as Isabelle, Kurt’s mentor at Vogue when he arrives in New York. Check out the promo poster below featuring Hudson:

Besides Quinn, there are a few other characters missing in the photo such as Coach Bieste, Emma Pilsbury, Sugar Motta, Joe Hart and Rory. To be fair, Joe and Rory were characters given to The Glee Project contestants so it is understandable that they have been let go. I seriously doubt they will get rid of Emma and Bieste because they were important parts of the show. I hope they are still there- maybe they were just like Dianna and couldn’t show up for the day of the shoot (Dianna is in France shooting a movie).

A very short promotional trailer has been released and features a NYADA dance lesson-

Lea Michele has also given some hints through Twitter pictures. In the past few days, she has uploaded photos of her in big dresses which can only mean that some formal event is on the cards for Rachel!

Today she posted a picture to show us a pretty steamy dance pose with new character Brody, played by Dean Geyer. Does this mean she falls for his charms?!

It will certainly be interesting seeing Lea’s dance scenes because Rachel has never been much of a dancer before. I can’t wait for this season to start so I can find out who is where, what has happened with relationships and what the new characters will be like. It is so exciting. I was unsure at first if I would like the show being split between different places but I think I might grow to like it. The choir room scenes will never be the same though!
