We haven’t even mentioned the big Glee controversy this week (except in our leftovers), because I think the subject has blown way out of proportion. So, just to brief you on this (in case you’ve missed it)–the cast of Glee did a racy photo spread in GQ, and everyone is up in arms over it. Here’s the spread, check it out.
I can see how parents can be pissed off over the pictures since a lot of these cast members are role models, and the show sends out such a positive message…but I think this subject has gotten way out of hand. Kids don’t read GQ! People are acting as if the cast did this spread in a Disney magazine. If you’re a parent that’s so pissed off at the photos, then censor your kids from looking at the photos. Simple! People are acting as if the cast did a spread for Hustler.
Katie Couric has now joined the “disappointed” bandwagon (take a min to watch):
Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio. Nadine’s TV, Radio, Writing credits include: national commercials, talking head roles on E! Entertainment, Showtime’s Hot Tamales Live, The Skinny: Fat Free News, The Sunny Side of The Truth: Real World Hollywood, TVgasm, Zazreport, Daddy’s Girls, Jerseylicious, celebrity interviews on Mania TV, a weekly half-hour television show that syndicates to colleges across the country for National Lampoon and a nightly radio show on XM Satellite Radio.
