Jay-Z Gets The Show Choir Treatment


Real talk: "Nassau County State Of Mind" > the candied slab of saccharine that is the "Glee" version of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State Of Mind." And despite this Autotuned, overly precious assault on his Big Apple anthem, Jay-Z is still having a pretty decent run this week, what with his bonkers, cameo-studded Yankee Stadium shows and the fact that he hasn't released a cringe-inducing AC/DC cover yet. (There's still time, though?)

Finally! A treatment that fits the song.

Aughhhhhhh what is Glee doing here! I thought we were all adults on this website!

That's so sad about the Santana "Back In Black" cover. (For lots of reasons.) But mainly, because of the opportunity lost: Why didn't he ask Juelz?

Cause Juelz already knocked Dylan

I'm not going to watch this video, but I would like to point out the disgusting thing happening with her leg. Gross, girl.

She's gotten GAUNT.

As the Fug Girls would say, girlfriend needs a sandwich. (Or five.)

Is it too much to wish for that the storylines, and therefore the ratings, tank in Glee's 2nd season a la Heroes?

I am so sick of hearing about this insipid, poorly written show.

I made it 1:56 in before losing it and closing the browser. I'm using a Mika palate cleanser currently.

Has anyone explained the significance of that line about the basketball players? I would imagine it's a common misunderstanding.

Also, the male lead, Monteith or something, is like 28 years old yet seemingly doesn't have the ability to grow facial hair. Either his estrogen levels are through the roof or he waxes his cheeks between takes.

Bits of "Nassau County State of Mind" hit entirely too close to home.

Why lord, why are the boys wearing gold chains? Are they doing a learning module on Irony: Inappropriate Uses Of? Are the members of Run DMC really the place to look for sartorial influence in 2010?

I'm going to have to watch this now, you realize. Bastard.
