Glee Song Choice Controversy

on Mar 10, 2011 @ 10:44 am

According to the Glee producers are getting some heat for this week’s episode (Tuesday March 8th) entitled “Sexy”. Executive at a children’s charity are upset with the use of Gary Glitter’s song “Do You Wanna Touch Me?. The track is sung by Gwyneth Paltrow during her sex ed talk. The charity is upset because Gary Glitter served 3 years in prison for sexually assaulting 2 young girls and will received a nice royalty for the use of the song, plus the popularity the song will receive from being on the show.

According to the article, networks in Britain are considering cutting the track when it airs there next month.

Did you see Glee this week? Do you agree with the song choice or do you think producers should have known better?

The producers definitely should have known better - that's awful!

I didn't care for this week's "sexy" episode even before knowing this fact - I thought some of the events seemed random.

Really? It wasn't even a great episode? on Mar 10, 2011 @ 12:13 pm

I'll have to watch it to form a valid opinion. But I agree with you cathy, the producers/writers, who ever should have looked into that sort of thing. It's not like they just pick songs randomly, everything should be research and they should consider how the public will respond to each song chosen.

This was a big oops!

I thought the entire episode was just in bad taste, even without this controversy! Glee used to be funny, witty and not all about sex. What's up?

I blame it on: on Mar 11, 2011 @ 02:17 pm

Lea Michele. I love her, but she is has been upping the sexy factor all over the place!

Oo I rmb that... on May 18, 2011 @ 12:37 pm
