Music Review: Matthew Morrison, 'Matthew Morrison'

5/12/2011 2:15pm EDT
Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison, "Matthew Morrison" (Mercury): Glee star Matthew Morrison's self-titled debut album is a guilty pleasure. It's not a CD that I'd admit I own, but it's one I do enjoy listening to.

Make no mistake about it, Morrison can sing; he spent some time as part of a boy band and has credits in several musicals to his name. I'm not a fan of the FOX series, but I loved his version of the Georgia Stitt classic "One Day More" on the 2007 compilation This Ordinary Thursday, so I figured his solo album might be a pleasant listen. It is: aside from the innuendos you're probably alrea...

'Glee' Recap: Bully Whips and Dancing Queens

GLEE: Blaine Darren Criss
Prom Elections are in full swing and New Directions is filling in for Air Supply as the house band. While most of the club is pretty psyched about the news, but our beloved Mercedes is hung up on the fact that she doesn’t have a date. She was really Jonesing for that Cinderella moment and damn it, new best friend to all, Rachel Berry, is going to give it to her. Sam is recruited and agrees that with a little financial aid, he’s up for the job of accompanying both divas to their big night.

Kurt asks Blaine to prom and with a bit of gentle open-minded prodding he agrees. The more important q...

'Glee' Recap: A Whole Lot Of Rumours

5/4/2011 11:41am EDT
Glee Kristin Chenoweth
This week is a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and all the plot points are built around a track list that includes “Dreams” , “Don’t Stop,” and “Go Your Own Way,” among others.

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!? Look no further than the train-wreck eras of Britney, Whitney, and Lindsay, or Saved By...

Matthew Morrison Feels 'Nervous' About Album Release

5/2/2011 9:53am EDT
Matthew Morrison
Glee star Matthew Morrison is feeling "nervous" about launching his music career because he fears his upcoming album will "expose" his weaknesses.

The actor signed a record deal last year, and his debut album - featuring a mixture of cover versions, duets, and self-penned tracks - is due for release later this month.

However, Morrison is wary of the reaction his music will receive, as writing songs is far more personal than performing for the cameras on Glee.

He tells British magazine Fabulous, "I'm nervous, yeah. I'm an actor first and foremost and I've always been able to hide behin...

'Glee' Recap: Just Be A Queen

GLEE Born This Way
In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

Matthew Morrison: 'I Was Scared Of Sex When I Was Growing Up'

Matthew Morrison
"Glee" star Matthew Morrison spent his early years too scared to have sex after his midwife father told him horror stories of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and teenage pregnancies.

Morrison's dad often regaled the star with tales from the delivery room and made a point of showing his young son a detailed book about STDs to make sure he was careful when it came to sex.

The actor/singer admits his father's blunt talks "scared" him and he spent years worrying about being intimate with a girl.

He tells Britain's Star magazine, "My birds and the bees talk was epic. My dad is a midwife ...

"Glee" star Matthew Morrison has the makers of a skincare line to thank for his luscious locks.

The actor has revealed he uses body lotion Lubriderm to give his hair extra life - something that has helped make him a TV stud.

Morrison's perfect hair has even become a standing joke on "Glee" - his character's jealous school rival Sue Sylvester often pokes fun at his coiffure.

He says, "I was in college and I was using some products and stuff and I ran out and the only thing there was Lubriderm, so I did a couple of squirts, put it in and it was, like, the best my hair ever looked... I've n...

The actor recently went away for a few days and when he returned to his house, he found the place had been overrun by rodents. Morrison reveals the property was covered in feces, with rats in every room - and he became determined to catch the intruders.

He tells The Billy Bush Show, "I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home. I go upstairs (and) there was a huge rat in my bed. And like, poop and faeces all over my bed.....

Matthew Morrison Perplexed By Alumnus Award

Matthew Morrison
Glee star Matthew Morrison was left baffled after receiving a distinguished alumnus award from his alma mater because he never actually graduated.

The actor, who studied at the prestigious New York University Tisch School of the Arts in the late 1990s, dropped out before receiving his degree to star in the Broadway play Footloose, but that decision doesn't seem to matter to administrators.

Morrison says, "It's funny to me... I just got this award, I went to NYU Tisch School of the Arts and I got this award for alumnus of the decade or alumnus of the year. It was the inaugural time, the ...

"Glee" star Matthew Morrison isn't phased by false rumors he is gay.

He explained, "I sing and dance for a living and there is that connotation associated with me. I don't care. I know the truth. Does it make it difficult to get with women? No, it makes it easier."

Matthew Morrison: 'I Feel Lonely A Lot'

Matthew Morrison
Actor Matthew Morrison feels "lonely a lot" since landing a starring role on Glee as he finds fame to be an "isolating" experience.

Morrison started his career performing on Broadway but it was his role as high school teacher Will Schuester on the hit musical TV show that has made him an international star.

However, despite being linked to British model Kelly Brook and Cameron Diaz, Morrison insists he's still single - and lonely.

'Glee' Recap: Originality Wins Regionals

GLEE: New Directions perform at Regionals in the Original Song
Gwyneth’s gone and ‘Glee’ has a brand new gimmick to trot out this week. The episode, aptly called ‘Original Song’ is designed to showcase just that – brand new never-before-heard tunes that are as irresistible as all the karaoke tracks that have come before.

The concept has been brewing for a while now. Rachel Berry will put her musical genius and emotional baggage on the line for the sake of the glee club and New Directions will perform a completely original ditty at Regionals. However, her current set list (My Headband and Only Child) leaves more than a little to be desired and Finn ta...

GLEE: Kurt 'Original Song'
This week, New Directions decided to work with original songs, rather than the classics they’ve worked with in the past. Will it be the winning combination the club needs to stay in the running?

Coach “World Wide Sue” is all over this episode, thank heavens, and she’s great right out of the gate when she tells Mr. Schue she’s gotten My Chemical Romance to say no to the rights to the song he had his heart set on for the clubs ‘showstopper’ at Regionals. It seems she slept with the drummer. Although it later turns out that she forged the ‘cease and desist’ order, and actually slept with the...

The TV actor explains he once enjoyed an intimate experience in the open air with an ex and he wanted to capture the magic moment in a song on his debut album.

He explains, "I wanted to capture a moment in time that I had with an ex-girlfriend... It was such a beautiful moment and it was about being young and in New York. It's something that when I'm 65, I'll look back and be like, 'That was an awesome moment.'

Elton John is set to follow in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow and Britney Spears with a role in Glee - he's in talks with the show's creator for a cameo.

Instead, she invited her "Country Strong" co-stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to induct her into the famous monument, while Matthew M...

A representative for Cameron Diaz's on/off boyfriend Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez has slammed "hogwash" reports the sportsman was flirting with reality TV star Kelly Bensimon at a Florida party on Tuesday.

Rodriguez's romance with the Charlie's Angels actress was rumored to be in trouble last month when Diaz was pictured enjoying a night out with Glee's Matthew Morrison.
