Commentators everywhere keep on lambasting Glee, and not because of stunt casting or inconsistent writing. The show's latest high-profile critic? Glenn Beck.

On Friday, the Fox News host gave the show this "compliment" ...

"I've watched in stunned horror combined with a sense of admiring awe. It is a brilliant, brilliant show, but it is a horror show. Everybody in here is somebody your kids would want to be like, except everyone is sleeping with everyone else.

It's all about self-gratification... it's a nightmare."

Fox News Pundit

Beck's attacks were just the latest on the hit show, with SNL alum Victoria Jackson and author Bret Easton Ellis delivering particularly blunt, harsh critiques.

As a result, the Fox musical dramedy got a vocal defense from the President of GLAAD, Jarrett Barrios, who told The Hollywood Reporter the following:

Guys, if you aren't familiar with Heather Morris and the hilarious Glee quotes she spouts as airhead cheerleader Brittany, it's okay. You can get to know her now.

In a new video for Esquire, Heather offers dance tips for men to use when "showing off" in clubs, and dances to "50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To."

Girl's got moves ... and flexibility. Watch her in action below:

Heather fun fact - she got her break on Glee (where she's perhaps best known for the Britney Spears episode) after being brought in as a choreographer.

Prior to that, she had been a backup dancer for Beyonce.

She also competed on season two of So You Think You Can Dance. We imagine she'll compete for more guys' attention after this Esquire effort!

Hookup alert! Scream 4 star Emma Roberts and Glee star Chord Overstreet looked like quite the couple at Coachella on Saturday, Us reports.

The made out, a witness says, and "couldn't keep their hands off each other!"

Roberts once dated bad boy Alex Pettyfer, 21; Overstreet has been linked to Taylor Swift, 21, and Glee costar Naya Rivera, 24, in the past.

Oh, and as the party neared its end, Roberts and Overstreet were just getting started. "They were talking about heading to a hotel pool!" a source says.

Things cooled things down the next day at Coachella: "She was leaning into him," a witness reports, "but he seemed way more interested in his food."

So, there you have that. Make of it what you will. You know who else was looking SMOLDERING at Coachella, on a side note? The Sexy Sax Man, Sergio Flores!

Friday, at UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation "Taste for a Cure" gala, Glee star Matthew Morrison was asked about the show's latest controversy.

Regarding author Bret Easton Ellis' Tweets - out-of-nowhere, awful Tweets - which likened Glee to a "stepping in a puddle of HIV," his reply was simple:

"Who's that?"

Bret is the author of notable works like American Pyscho and Rules of Attraction. Morrison may have meant this to mean that Ellis is not on his radar.

The actor added:

"You know what? That means the show is good if people have not nice things to say - and amazing things to say. It keeps people talking, you know?"

"That's going to be a part of the show."

That's a remarkably positive way to look at it. If only everyone approached things with that mentality, maybe comments like Ellis' wouldn't even occur.

In the music world, being covered by Glee is a sign that you've made it and a true honor. Unless you're Dave Grohl or Kings of Leon, but that's another story.

The Fox hit's latest adaptation may be a major shark-jumper, though.

Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” which just surpassed 100 million views on YouTube due to the fact that it's the worst song ever, is getting the Glee treatment.

The song will appear an upcoming episode that centers around prom, and will either be sung by Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling, or by Salling and returning guest star Jonathan Groff, reprising his role as Jesse St. James.

Seriously, this is happening.

What do you think? A fun move by a fun show, or, as one critic put it, is a Glee cover of Rebecca Black like a herpes version of chlamydia? Sound off below.

Good news for Victoria Jackson. The former Saturday Night Live star, who said Glee makes kids gay, has no longer uttered the most ridiculous, disparaging remark about the Fox hit.

Just read what Bret Easton Ellis, an author best known for American Psycho, Tweeted last night: "I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I've stepped into a puddle of HIV?"

Ummm... because you're a fear-mongering, ignorant moron?

  • Glee
  • Bret Easton Ellis

Ellis has over 141,000 followers on Twitter and has said in the past that he doesn't identify as gay or straight. He's also released similarly strange, bitter Tweets in the past.

During the "It Gets Better" campaign, which debuted soon after a rash of teen suicide and which featured a number of celebrities sending positive messages to gay youths, Ellis wrote: "Not to bum everyone out, but can we get a reality check here? It gets worse."

Sure. For close-minded bigots perhaps.

Glee star Matthew Morrison sure knows how to strike a lean, mean shirtless pose, as his Details photo spread in December proved beyond any doubt.

His secret to keeping that body? That part of it may surprise you.

For three days before the Details shoot, the actor ate nothing but ... sweet potatoes. He scientifically explains this dietary strategy as such: “The potato acts as a sponge and your body literally shrinks and gets ripped and tight."

Mmmyeah, not sure about that, Matt. Then again, it worked, so ...

With an episode titled "Born This Way," Glee is paying homage to Lady Gaga April 26. In a 90-minute episode, New Directions will perform her latest smash hit.

That week (the show's second episode back from hiatus), Mr. Schuester teaches the club a lesson about self-acceptance and embracing what makes us unique.

Thus the parallels with Gaga's anthem for those very themes:

While it makes sense that the show will have a finger on the pulse of the music world, some fans say it needs a new direction (pun intended) in its writing.

The perceived pursuit of hot tunes to shoehorn into episodes, rather of focusing on characters and writing that made the show a hit, is a frequent criticism.

Do you agree? Or do you love the hit Glee music tie-ins?

Glee creator Ryan Murphy made up with Kings of Leon this week, dialing back his criticism of the band and others that denied to allow Glee to use their songs.

While some, like said Kings and Dave Grohl, are not fans, plenty of musicians have allowed the Warblers / New Directions do their thing. Case in point below.

Glee returns April 19 with new episodes. A new album of Glee music drops the very same day. On it will be this cover of Keane and much more. Listen now:

Elton John recently referred to Kings of Leon as "assholes" and told them to "chill out" over their refusal to allow Glee to cover their single "Use Somebody" on an episode.

But series creator Ryan Murphy no longer has such harsh words for the band.

A few months after the producer and drummer Nathan Followill got really personal (the latter made a few digs at Murphy's sexuality), Murphy has released the following statement:

Kings of Leon pic

I support artists and what they choose to do... I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit. The Foo Fighters are brilliant. We'd love to do one [of] their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it's not their thing, then OK. I personally wish them luck, will still listen to their music.

I'm really proud of the fact that we can introduce songs to younger kids or their parents because I'm the biggest music fan. The show is about the love of performing and arts education - things I think are very special.

Case closed, we guess. Glee returns with a new episode on April 19.
