Gwyneth Paltrow is taking on music royalty with her next "Glee" appearance: The "Country Strong" star is set to sing Prince's "Kiss" in a duet with Matthew Morrison.
According to TVLine, Paltrow will reprise her role as substitute teacher Holly Holiday in an episode airing March 8. This time around, Holiday returns to McKinley High to fill in for an absent sex-ed instructor, and things get pretty steamy.
"Cue more flying sparks between her and Morrison’s Mr. Schuester, and presto, a purportedly too-hot-for-TV version of Prince’s classic is born," reports TVLine, adding that the two will share a sizzling smooch.
As Marquee previously reported, the "Glee" gang will be hitting the road for another tour this spring. Might Paltrow join them for one of the performances? Hopefully, she won't say "Forget You" to the idea.
I want to bukkake all over her face.
I think it will be an interesting performance, for sure. 'Glee' is an interesting extension of the 'American Idol' mentality at its core – it took the idea that people might want to listen to alternate versions of songs done by stars on the show time and time again and turned it into the idea for a show altogether. You can see this in the near seamless integration into iTunes the show has. Watching the show online and a song comes on? Guess what?! Convenient iTunes button flashes nearby and you can download it (for a nominal fee). Wooooo!
I'd like the show more if they'd just remove the gay dudes, though. Ironic, considering the whole 'musical' thing is pretty gay on its own. But whatever.
OMG not Gwyneth again. She is at best average. She wouldn't even make it to Hollywood on American Idol.
I love this....Mubarak is dong a live address that could change the way we will buy oil, we we're all up in it about Paltrow. Gotta love the opiate of society.
Just the thought of it makes me NAUSEOUS!!!!....why would she even want to do a song like that...as if SHE CAN SING...so self indulgent she is....pathetic...she's sux!
What a joke. Gweneth can`t sing . My dog can carry more of a tune than she can. Think she sings just to annoy us.
Just go away Gwenny...you can't sing and you can barely act (no repeat Oscar as that first one was a fluke). Although she has an excellent management machine she is everywhere...would really like to see a real singer do Prince. Gwennie's just a celebrity...not a talent.
I thought she defected to England because America was sooooo wrong a place?
I'm just SO EXCITED to watch that woman that lost so much weight from Shallow Hal and did the Kill Bill films do a musical.
This travesty is obviously Obama's fault.
This blog is better than reading the morning "comics" in the newspaper! I've been literally laughing out loud all the way through it! Some of you are so quick-witted and hilarious!
What's next? Matt Damon does Willie Nelson? I mean come on now, Gwyneth. Just stop!
Eeewwww, I'd rather do Gwyneth than Willie Nelson.
I don't care much for her, but I was impressed with her first GLEE appearance. I'll tune in, cause I do still enjoy the show, even though I've begun to guess some of the songs they'll sing in episode plot.
It's obvious nobody at CNN monitors these boards. It's also obvious that nobody is going to tell an A-list movie star to stick to acting! EVERY song she's covered sounds like bland, washed out cornflakes...
But, you see, that's where some of us disagree. I love her voice and think she has done a fine job in everything she has tried. I look forward to seeing the Glee program that she will perform in.
light travels at 186,000 miles per second.
It's actually much faster than that! 186,000 per second squared. Sorry I'm a nerd.
Sorry Greg...you're wrong. Sort of like a nerd, but without the knowledge, I guess.
Id give it to her under the boardwalk for sure. My tasty little Snooki likes it under there.
This just in...Gwyneth Paltrow to sing Happy Birthday at neighbor's kids party...film at 11
I find her extremely annoying! Not a fan!
I agree with you, she probably doesn't know...
She is so pretentious.
Who cares. She is HOT!
Thanks for the warning.
if the burning tractor had the cast in it...then yes I would watch.
Christina A will be back stage to assist in case Paltrow forget the words.
I bet obama is a fan of glee.
W t f! French horn..lmao!
I don't watch this show because I am not a gay.
I agree, one has to be obviously ultra-turbo gay to like this show..
There is a senseless monster tractor-pull on T.V. tonight. I hear it is a recording and one of the tractors rolls over and catches fire. Maybe you would prefer that.
This chick's no so subtle transition to be a 'singer' is gross and so orchestrated that it's an insult to most.
These comments are so funny talking about Obama on an article about Glee and Prince lol. Do you realize that you come off as crazy and actually make obama look better.
obama is a socialist! and a little fyi for you all, hes a chain smoker. . .
I can live with a Socialist, but a CHAIN SMOKER????? Anything but that!!! OMG, what is this world coming to????
I eat lots of beans and can play the French Horn while its in my butt.
Do you think this girl has any idea that most people just simply do not like her and find her extremely pretentious? Probably not.
I'd like to star in any mummy related episodes.
Hey TATER-Boy...you dont need no episode...just follow me and Ole Grandad will show ya what its all about.
I wanna guest star in some of the "coming out" episodes.
Im hearing rumblings that the name of GLEE will soon be changed to GLAAD.
What does obama have 2 do with this article?! do u dummys find a way 2 put politics in everything? gosh shut up!And paul diddty? your grammar is shameful. instead of blasting our pres. go back 2 school sir
I know the producers of Glee have really wanted to feature Prince's music on the show for a long time. Glad to see it's finally happening to introduce young kids to the legendary artist Prince and his amazing music however not thrilled about Paltrow singing...
that's just all kinds of wrong!!!
Paltrow to sing Princes Kiss? LMAO...this should hilarious and great fodder for SNL. If the lunkheaded SNL players can pull if off. Not likely but should be a gimme.
There are some things you just don't mess with, and Prince's music is in that category.
