They may be one of the most popular bands in the country, but don’t expect to hear the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the uber-popular Fox show, Glee, any time soon! Not only is the lead singer, Anthony Kiedis, completely against the idea, but he doesn’t even know what Glee really IS. Ouch!
“Honestly, I don’t know about Glee,” the 47-year-old lead singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Surfrider Foundation fundraiser in Malibu, Calif. Sept. 11. “I’ve seen a picture of the Glee thing, but I don’t know what it is really.”
After being described what the award-winning musical show is to him, Anthony STILL wasn’t into the idea of letting Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison & co. sing his tunes.
“Generally speaking, that doesn’t excite me,” he admitted. “Nothing against Glee or any of those American Idol type shows, but you know … music that is near and dear to our hearts and the people we wrote it for and play it for, it doesn’t make sense to be seen in a television format. It seems emotionally displaced.”
Anthony isn’t the first one to say no to being on the hit Fox show — Kings of Leon very publicly “refused to sell out” to Glee as well. Lady Gaga, Madonna and Queen have all lent their work…do YOU think RHCP is making a mistake? (Source)
