So with April 13, 2010 quickly approaching, Adam cajoled me (ok…convinced me) to do the remaining Glee updates in groups. I think he actually wanted to get me to write about something other than Glee (aka…get out of your comfort zone!!!). Before that happens…lets talk about numbers 9 and 8 – the boys and the girls of Glee. Glee would literally nothing without them.
#9 The Boys of Glee
The XY chromosomes of Glee are working overtime and I love it. While a lot of the show is obvious parody of your typical American High School, its refreshing to see complex male characters who are learning about their feminine sides (and for Kurt his masculine side). The schmaltzy idealist that lives inside my ice cold jaded heart still dreams of a day when we all can do a rendition of “Single Ladies” to win the big game. Maybe their are Finns out there who will stretch their vocal accords in additional to their hamstrings and learn a thing or two about what it is like to be the queer kid. Hey…a boy can hope, right?
#8 The Girls of Glee
Most of my gay compatriots would lambaste me for not putting the boys ahead of the girls, but lets all just relax and accept the fact that the vajayjays rule this roost. Not always the most likable of people the girls of Glee can sing circles around the boys. Even though their Mash-Up was not on par with the boys, there is no doubt in mind that the girls of Glee have more musical talent than the boys. They have sung Showtunes, Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Power Ballad, Rock, 80s…and the list goes on with pitch perfect performances, while the boys can be counted on to do that for Classic Rock only. So…Lets hear it for the Girls!
Stay tuned for 7 & 6 friends…
