Kings Of Leon: ‘We don’t know what ‘Glee’ is’ – Daily Gossip

Slash and Harry Hill, McElderry's age, Blunt's farming tale – your music gossip stop

Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Kings Of Leon‘s Matthew Followill said the real reason the band turned down an appearance in Glee, as they admitted to NME in August, was because they didn’t actually know what it was. Well, ‘Glee’ does work on many ‘levels’ (Daily Record).

From the papers:

Rihanna‘s performance on the Italian version of X Factor saw her wear a pair of knickers and bra seemingly crafted out of a set of old, flowered curtains (various).

James Blunt has gone up slightly in our estimations – because he’s been hanging out with farmers in Ibiza. “There is a pretty eclectic mix of music in Ibiza,” he said, adding: “The places where all the farmers hang out are fun” (The Sun).

Florence Welch has admitted she’s always had rubbish music taste. “I was a child of the ’90s, so the first album I got was ‘Spiceworld’ on tape.” Child of the ’90s?! That’s no excuse, Flo (The Sun).

Joe McElderry was forced to find a novel way to prove his age after bouncers refused him entry to a PlayStation Move promo night. The 19-year-old brought up his Wiki page on an iPhone (Daily Mirror).

Slash and Harry Hill were sat at the same table on Later… With Jools Holland. Oh, what we’d have given to have been a fly on the wall there (The Sun).
