His songs were covered on American Idol this week. He's hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow. And now Elton John is jumping into the fray of another pop culture debate.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon last night, the veteran artist was asked about Kings of Leon and Dave Grohl, musicians that have lashed out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy for asking if his show could cover their singles.

"When someone wants to do your song, it’s a compliment," John said, getting pointed in his criticism of Kings of Leon: "Lighten up, you assholes... I mean, this is a compliment. Also, it sends a positive message out. What the hell is wrong with you guys?”

Watch the exchange below.

Glee is on hiatus until April 12. But a couple random celebrities have given fans of this Fox series a couple things to buzz over during the break.

First, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl went off on the show, echoing the sentiments of King of Leon and a couple other artists that have taken exception to creator Ryan Murphy's insistence over all bands giving the show rights to their music. Grohl cursed a lot in his assessment of this stance.

Then, former SNL cast member Victoria Jackson reacted to a male-on-male kiss by accusing to Glee of pushing an agenda of "one-way tolerance." We've summarized both feuds in this edition of The Pulse...

It's double poll time, readers.

Victoria Jackson has sounded off again.

Last month, the former Saturday Night Live member sung about how Barack Obama is clearly a Communist. Now, in a column for World Net Daily, Jackson writes that "progressives, communists, liberals, globalists and Muslims want to destroy America" and then focuses on the most recent episode of Glee.

It featured two male characters kissing, which led to this excerpt:

Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians — again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of Glee — what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?

Did Jackson just label a gay kiss "sickening" and then call out Glee producers for being intolerant? Forget rain on your wedding day or 10,000 spoons when one really needs a knife.

This is ironic, don't you think?

Does Victoria Jackson have a point?

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl does not want his music featured on Glee, nor does he appreciate bands being made to feel bad about this choice.

In a recent interview, Grohl dropped f-bombs on the Fox hit and its creator, Ryan Murphy, leaving absolutely no doubt about his feelings on either.

It's unclear what prompted his rant, but Grohl was likely inspired by Kings of Leon and Slash and their un-Glee-ful decisions to turn down the show.

"It's every band's right, you shouldn't have to do f--king Glee," he said. "Then the guy who created Glee is offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f--king show. F--k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee."

That about sums it up. But he wasn't even close to done.

"The Glee guy, what a f--king jerk," Grohl adds. "Slash was first. He wanted to do Guns N' Roses. Slash is like 'I f--king hate musicals. It's worse than Grease.'"

"Then [Murphy's] like, 'Well of course he'd say that, he's a washed up rock star, that's what they f---ing do.' And then Kings of Leon say, 'No, we don't want to be on your show.' And then he's like, they're snotty little a$$holes ...'"

"It's just like, 'Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee.' Me included."

Bandmate Taylor Hawkins concurred, adding "Yeah, f--k that s--t."

The Parents Television Council often goes too far in its attempt to rid the airways of anything remotely controversial. In the past, it's asked for a federal investigation into Skins and compared a photoshoot to child pornography.

But we can see where the organization is coming from in its latest critique of Glee.

Following an episode that brought back Gwyneth Paltrow as a sexual education teacher, Dan Isett - the PTC's director of public policy - went off to The Hollywood Reporter about how many scenes were "pretty appalling." Specifically? One in which Paltrow's Holly dances seductively for students.

Go Glee

"If you had a real-life instance of that, I think it's fair to say the teacher involved would no longer be a teacher," he said. "But somehow it's acceptable for a fictional teacher to do this. Again, this is a real problem. Real-world teachers don't lap dance with their students."

Glee addressed the issues of underage drinking and sexual confusion on last night's episode.

It also answered the classic question: how would a drunken cast of singing group members handle a cover of a Ke$ha song in a school-wide assembly celebrating alcohol awareness?

The answer: very well, at least for a couple minutes. Led by Heather Morris as Brittany, New Directions danced and sung along the "Tik Tok" this week. Check out the performance here, compare it to the original and be wary of the concluding few seconds. They're gross.

Following an episode of Glee that featured a Justin Bieber tribute band, another young, cute talented musician has thrown his curly hair into the ring for a future appearance on the Fox smash.

Isn't that right, Nick Jonas?

Cute on the Guitar

“I really do appreciate the use of music in Glee,” he told TV Squad. "I think everyone can relate that’s in the music business. Everyone’s just thankful that music is kind of popular again because Glee does a great job of incorporating it into the show. I would humbly say that if there’s ever an opportunity they see that I could work well on that show, I would be honored."

Jonas guest-starred last week on Mr. Sunshine. Would you wanna see him roaming the halls of William McKinley?

We underestimated the power of the Biebs.
He's clearly a mini God. - Puck to Mike, on the Glee episode "Comeback"

Dressing up four of its characters in a hooded sweatshirt and parting their hair over their eyes, Glee created The Justin Bieber Experience last night, a tribute group that covered this young icon's most beloved singles.

The mission of these fictional high school students? To win over their girlfriends with "a sugary sweet dose of the Biebs" in order to ignite the flames of passion that had burned out after Valentine's Day. The results? Hilarious.

Visit our friends at TV Fanatic for a sample of Glee covering this artist, and check out the fun scene below, as The Justin Bieber Experience is formed:

Dina Lohan is not happy with Glee. Again.

Months after incurring Dina's wrath after bashing Lindsay Lohan in an episode that guest starred Gwyneth Paltrow, Glee went after Dina personally on Sunday.

After a cheerleading stunt gone awry, Katie Couric (as herself) informed Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester that she had earned the title of the world's biggest loser.

That's no small feat. She beat out Tiger Woods, the economy, Dina Lohan and the Lohans' dog, Sparky, who is also a loser, for that distinction. Hilarious.

But man, oh man is Dina pissed off now ...

Dumb Dina Lohan

BUNCH OF LOSERS: Want some cheese with that whine, D?

"The show has now targeted everyone from gays to lesbians, Asians, disabled and each other... several groups are going after the producers," Dina told E! News.

Her diatribe continued: "It's a shame as the dance numbers are amazing, but the writers need to be nice and more creative as opposed to being hurtful."

"They are sending the wrong message to the youth watching. Oh, and I must get a 'fifth' dog named Sparky... as far as Katie Couric is concerned, she has a short memory when the tabloids were trashing her a few years ago - and she's a mom!"

Yes Dina, ... the tabloids TRASHED Katie Couric for CBS News' low ratings. How dare she turn around and poke fun at a train wreck celebrity mom.
