I finally watched an episode of The Voice recently, and while I deeply enjoyed it, I still think Levine is a total turd. He’s snarky, smarmy, brittle, and even a bit of a bully.
I also think he’s very talented at recognizing talent—all the Voice coaches are, in fact—and if Levine wanted to, he could absolutely be the next Simon Cowell. Have at it, Levine.
Here’s the part that really curls my hair: guess which “artist” was the first to sign to the new label!
“I am excited to be working on my next album with such an incredible singer, writer and producer as Adam Levine,” the Glee star said in a statement. “Adam and I share the same vision as we begin working on my record together.”

You know how sometimes a person will say things, maybe in an interview like this but in everyday life as well, and you just get this overwhelming sense of “wow, person, you’re a total tool,” and sometimes you realize that he’s actually a good person who just doesn’t understand how to interact with people, and sometimes he’s just a dick? Yeah, Matthew Morrison (Glee, you guys) did an interview with Details, and right now he’s in that first category. I’ll show you guys some excerpts and you let me know what you think.
Matthew’s important points: When we first met, after a recording session, Morrison was holding a sheet of yellow lined paper on which he’d scrawled notes about what he wanted to mention during our interview. “It’s pretty amazing being me,” he said breezily. “Write that down.”
On being super attractive: “I’m not comfortable with the idea of my sex appeal, but I know in my job I have to use it. I wish I could say I got to this point in my career based on my talent, but I don’t think that’s true.”
On his younger coworkers: “I am a teacher to them,” Morrison says of the younger castmates he refers to as “the kids.” “I’ve taken a few under my wing. I don’t want to say they idolize me, but…” he trails off, realizing how this might sound. He’s careful about what he says and wishes some of his colleagues were a little less publicity-driven. “Yeah, I find myself learning a lot from the set. I do look at stuff people on the show are doing, and I don’t judge them, but I question it. I say to myself, keep quiet. Fame, you know, it’s like a handgun—in the wrong hands, it’s dangerous.”
On relationships: “I’m not a good friend right now. I’m not a good boyfriend. It’s not that I’m selfish. I’m just focused.”
A bonus story about Lea Michele’s diva tendencies: Everyone’s looking over their lines now, rehearsing dance steps— except Lea Michele, who keeps staring at me as I observe Morrison. Every time I look up, I catch her looking my way. It seems she knows I’m a reporter and wants my attention. When Morrison brings over a laptop to show me a movie treatment he’s been working on, Michele crosses the set, stands next to me, and starts talking to the show’s publicist. “I have a lot of interviews to do,” she says. “There’s that AIDS blast and…” She turns to look at me. “Oh, hi.” Within minutes the publicist asks me to leave the set. I’m a distraction.
Even though Lea Michele is kind of ruining Glee for me with her ridiculous singing faces and general demeanor, that last little story still cracks me up. But this isn’t about her, this is about Matthew “I don’t want to say they idolize me, but …” Morrison. What do you guys think – douchebag or just an awkward guy?

If you believe these pictures, and try to imagine any other possible reason why Mr. Schuester would be carting Diaz’s funk-ass around (and can’t), you probably came to the same adolescent-themed faux conclusion that I did: they’re boning, heh-heh.
I guess this solidifies the rumors that A-Rod and Cameron did recently break up, but I knew that wouldn’t last anyway. Regardless, the two stars Morrison and Diaz were photographed occupying the same car — Morrison was the driver — and further spent time in one another’s company at LA club, where they reportedly jammed to 30 Seconds to Mars (didn’t Cammy hit that at one point, too?). Onlookers said — of course — that the two looked ‘cozy,’ though I’m sure the same onlookers would have said they looked ‘cozy’ even if they were just sharing airspace on a chaste priest- and nun-filled 747 ultimately bound for the Vatican.
The friends were out celebrating the one-year anniversary of Jason Scoppa’s Bardot Sessions, and other celebrities in attendance included Macy Gray, Gene Simmons, Iggy Pop, Jeremy Piven, Deryck Whibley, Todd Morse, and Miley Cyrus, drugged out and grinding on the reanimated corpse of Michael Jackson.
OK, that last part isn’t exactly true, but it’s more believable than Matthew Morrison and Cameron Diaz as Hollywood’s newest couple, you feel me?

If I’m going to write 25 paragraphs about The Biggest Loser, it’s only fair I give a tiny bit of attention to one of my other favorite shows, the fabulous Glee. Here’s some sneak peeks for the coming week — looks fabulous, per usual!
