Jane Lynch is hilarious and amazing, so it’s no surprise that she knows all the lyrics to Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Super Bass’ and that she felt the need to bust out into song while appearing on Conan earlier this week. The only thing wrong with this is that they should have let her sing the whole thing.
When Conan joked that Jane must have lots of opportunities to sing the song in her everyday life, she responded: “Absolutely. I have all of these skills now that are just going to get me so far… And they don’t expect it from a 6-foot white lady.”

Jane Lynch of Glee (but more importantly, some awesome Christopher Guest movies) is making her Broadway debut as the villainous Miss Hannigan from Annie. I love Ms. Lynch and I love the idea of her as Miss Hannigan, but Carol Burnett owns that role in my mind. She’ll probably kick ass at it, though. Lynch will play a very limited run, from May 16th to July 14th. In the meantime, for all your borderline evil orphanage owner needs, check out Burnett.
Sarah Jessica Parker famously made her Broadway debut as Annie in 1979. They missed the chance to go super weird with this and recast Parker as Annie.
On her new role, Lynch told The Baltimore Sun,
Some may say I know a thing or two about playing intimidating authority figures. So I am excited and honored to be making my Broadway debut with the wonderful Annie company at the Palace Theatre and joining the pantheon of women who have taken on the great and irresistible role of wicked Miss Hannigan.
Just once I wish a celeb would end of their standard polite informational soundbites with, “Because I’m f-cking awesome.” I mean, aside from Kanye West.

Is it me, or are the bad dresses always the most fun? Because personally? I think the bad dresses are always most fun. And you know what’s also kind of fun? That two ‘Big Bang Theory’ stars showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat ass. Well, wait. To be fair, Johnny Galecki (who took the number one worst dressed spot, along with his girlfriend, Kelli Garner) showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat (greasy) ass, while Kaley Cuoco, in the number five slot, looked … well, she looked comical. Cartoonish, even. And also, that big hair of hers makes her head look huge. Coming from someone who has a big head herself, I can tell you: one thing you never want to do is tease your crown, because it’s going to look like … well, that. Yike.
Here’s the rest of the worst dressed!
#4 – Anne Hathaway
#3 – Jane Lynch
#2 – Sigourney Weaver
#1 – Johnny Galecki and his girlfriend, who is not Courtney Love, despite the uncanny resemblance

“I’d close the drapes, take a swig of NyQuil, toast with a simple ‘bye-bye’ and go into a deep sleep. … I was miserable the whole time.”
In case you didn’t know, Glee‘s Jane Lynch has a book coming out, wherein she discusses her previous battles with both depression and addiction. Lynch discusses a dark period in her life when she was substituting alcohol with NyQuil, and NyQuil with marijuana, and how it began to affect her mental well-being.
Call me old school or a trendy drug prude, but I wasn’t aware that taking NyQuil recreationally was a “thing.” I mean, it is? This is a thing that people do? Is this how Lindsay Lohan got her start, or is it a horse of an entirely different color?
Either way, congrats, Jane, for beating something that was obviously leading to other destructive behaviors. Good for you!

Are you super excited about seeing Sarah Palin on your favorite show? Are you shivering in anticipation of seeing America’s favorite mom sing and dance throughout America’s favorite high school? Well, then I have one word for you:
At least, I’m fairly certain it’s a “psyche” occasion. I got this tip from a quote by Jane Lynch, Glee‘s Sue Sylvester, in which she said “I’m pretty sure we got Sarah Palin to do a guest spot on ‘Glee.’ She’ll perform an original tune I penned: ‘Look at Me, I’m Batshit Crazy.” I mean, I know Jane is usually a really truthful person, but I just can’t imagine the Parents Television Council would allow a word as scandalous as “batshit” in the title of a Glee song, could you?

The end of Oprah‘s final season is looming and I dunno about you guys, but I’m straight-up melting down over the idea that in six short weeks, for the first time in my life, I’m going to turn on the TV at 4 PM and O’s familiar face isn’t going to be there.
I know I can’t be alone in this, especially because former Roseanne writer/producer, Maxine Lapiduss has made this new music video “Scared About Life Without Oprah.” The video is hilarious, silly and generally relatable. Plus, it’s has a guest appearance by Glee‘s Jane Lynch, who always kills it.
But seriously, guys: What are we supposed to do in a world without Oprah? Have you seen OWN? It sucks so far. Master Class is a snooze, and even Our America with Lisa Ling isn’t doing it for me. Considering they did an episode about transgendered people, who are my favorite kind of people to learn about, I can’t wrap my head around why it sucks so badly. Maybe I just have ridiculously high standards for the Queen of Daytime and all of her projects?
