Glee‘s fourth season may have just wrapped, but Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina on the show, isn’t slowing down. She just released a book, Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You, which is part scrapbook memoir and part teen advice book with anecdotes and tips about being yourself, achieving your goals and having confidence in your abilities. “It’s always been on my bucket list to write a book,” Ushkowitz said. “It sort of organically happened. I wrote this treatment in like 24 hours. The main 10 rules kept popping up over and over again, so that’s where we found the streamline for it.”
Gleeks will be excited to learn that the book has tips from the whole McKinley High crew, and even includes a letter from Ushkowitz to Tina. “I think some of the things I [hope for her are] to take risks and to not take everything so seriously,” Ushkowitz explains about her dreams for her character. “Make sure you tell people how you feel and to laugh everyday!”
Check out Ushkowitz laughing herself when she takes EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test — and fills us in on the movie she has to watch every time it’s on cable and her most prized pop culture possession — below:
Jenna Ushkowitz of “Glee” thought that having two veteran performers judging the contestants provides “Idol” with artistic credibility. “I think J.Lo and Steven Tyler will put in a lot of really, really good criticism because they’re performers,” she said. “I think it’ll be constructive, and I think it’ll be helpful.”

Also, Hello everyone! I’m Taryn. I’m going to be helping Kari and Rachel update here at Jenna Ushkowitz Online. I actually used to have my own Jenna fansite, but it has since closed and I have come here! I am so excited to be working here and with Kari & Rachel. Keep coming back for a ton of updates!
Last year a phenomenon was created on American TV as musical comedy-drama “Glee” first took to our screens. Ever since, the show has taken the world by storm. The cast took to the “X-Factor” stage to perform their most popular song, Don’t Stop Believing! Take a look below.
So far “Glee” has been very good at not specifying whether its characters are high school sophomores, juniors or seniors. But it can’t avoid the issue forever — in fact, co-creator Ryan Murphy is already looking ahead to graduation.
“I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers’ lives,” Murphy says in an interview with Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper. “They graduate and they’re gone.”
Murphy says he’s looking at the end of Season 3 in 2012 for at least some of the show’s characters — including, probably, Finn (Cory Monteith), Rachel (Lea Michele) and Quinn (Dianna Agron). “Every year we’re going to populate a new group,” he says in the interview. “There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”
That means that, come Season 4 of the show, New Directions could have completely turned over its membership — which is what happens in any real high school, but can be a difficult thing to pull off on a TV series.
We’re curious to know what you think: Would you still watch “Glee” with a new group of students? (Source)
