This Thursday, Fox’s Glee hits yet another milestone with the cast performing their 500th(!) song, “Shout” from the classic 1978 comedy Animal House.

The episode, titled “Girls (And Boys) on Film” and airing at a special 9:30pm time, finds New Directions assigned to perform their favorite songs from movies, including “Footloose” from Footloose and “Unchained Melody” from Ghost. For you Gleeks who can’t wait, EW is exclusively premiering  “Shout.” Listen to rollicking track below: READ FULL STORY

Morrissey continues beef with Jimmy Kimmel, starts new one with Paul McCartney

And since that headline wasn’t vegan, Morrissey might soon start feuding with us!

It all began when the “Meat Is Murder” singer canceled his scheduled appearance on Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, citing his moral qualms with being on the same program as the mallard-hunting stars of A&E’s Duck Dynasty. This prompted Kimmel to take some swipes at the former Smiths frontman in his opening monologue.

“While I respect his stance on this, I really do, there’s a very good reason why I didn’t dump the Duck Dynasty guys for Morrissey,” said the comedian. “And that’s because they have guns.” Kimmel also added, “He keeps finding new ways to depress us,” referring to Morrissey’s “Pope of Mope” reputation. On top of that, the host also aired a parody video for “a new Duck Dynasty product for vegans.”

Naturally, Moz was not amused by any of this and released the following statement:

Morrissey cancels on Kimmel due to 'moral' opposition to 'Duck Dynasty'

If you’ve set your DVR to record Morrissey’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this evening, well, heaven knows you’ll be miserable tonight.

Moz has cancelled his scheduled appearance on today’s episode of Kimmel due to moral reasons, E! reports. What moral reasons, you ask? According to his rep, the former Smiths frontman “cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests.”

Apparently the vegan “Meat Is Murder” singer caught wind that stars of the A&E reality show will also be visiting Kimmel’s studio today, and, since they make products for duck hunters, that means Morrissey’s out.

On My iPod: 'Castle' star Stana Katic on collecting folk music and making out to Led Zeppelin

On Castle, Stana Katic plays Kate Beckett, a no-nonsense detective who often has to reign in partner and paramour Rick Castle.

In her life outside of network procedurals, however, Katic is a little more footloose—she regularly travels the world in search of new culture, and spends a great deal of that time on the road listening to and collecting new music.

She also got an education in punk rock history for her upcoming film CBGB, in which she plays producer and club mainstay Genya Ravan. Check out some of Katic’s favorites below, and spin them all on the Spotify playlist at the bottom:

Queen, “I Want to Break Free”
“F— yeah. I never knew about until very recently. There are just these classic rock songs that for some reason weren’t on my radar growing up. It speaks to me on so many levels. Everyone around me was like, ‘How do you not know this song?’ And then I watched the video and was even more in love with it. Freddie Mercury is incredible. He’s an amazing vocalist, and his story was really wonderful as well. It’s that amazing mix of classical ballad vocals with rock, and I see that happening a lot now. The lead singer for fun. or Neon Trees—these guys have voices that could fit elegantly and comfortably on any Broadway stage, but here they are entertaining us with rock music. Their vocals are so complex and capable of inspiring a lot. Freddie Mercury, I think in so many ways led that path. He’s an incredible performer. I like this song because it’s got a great beat, it’s got a lot of fun going for it, but it speaks to my restlessness, my wanderlust right now. I feel like a caged cheetah sometimes.” READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' star Lucy Hale busy recording country album

It’s not uncommon for stars of the small screen to dip their toes into the music industry: Miley Cyrus started on Disney’s Hannah Montana before she become a full-fledged recording artist; Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester dropped a handful of singles back in 2009 and 2010; and Shameless‘ Emmy Rossum just released her second album. Now you can add Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale to the mix, as the actress has been in Nashville for the past few weeks recording a country album while on hiatus before shooting her ABC Family show’s fourth season. (Season 3 is currently airing, and season 4 will launch in June.)

How does Hale describe the album? “It’s country,” she explains plainly, of what she’s recording. “We definitely have more mainstream songs, but then we have songs that are straight-up country.”

Hale is hoping that she surprises people with what she puts out. “I think it’s gonna shock a lot of people actually, so it’s really exciting.” READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon talks about his show's biggest moments by this year's Grammy nominees

A look at the nominations for this Sunday’s Grammy Awards points to an interesting trend: Apparently, the road to Grammy-nominated glory runs through the Rockefeller Center studio that houses Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Many of this weekend’s potential winners have had their biggest moments on the show, from Frank Ocean’s TV debut to the “music room” remix of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”

What’s more, there could be Grammy gold coming to the show itself: Fallon’s Blow Your Pants Off (which consists largely of musical bits from the show) is nominated for Best Comedy Album, and house band the Roots’ Undun is up for Best Rap Album. EW caught up with Fallon a few weeks back to go over some of his show’s biggest highlights from this year’s crop of Grammy nominees.

Frank Ocean
“We booked the Odd Future guys a while back, before they got signed. So we stayed in touch with them, and Frank Ocean is from that crew, and we heard he had a record coming out, so we booked him to perform—he was making his TV debut on our show. Two days before is when he tweeted out that letter about his sexuality. That’s so crazy to do in the world of R&B and hip-hop, it’s just a thing that’s not really done. No one does that. So it made all these headlines, and the tag to all the headlines was, ‘And he’s performing on Jimmy Fallon.’ READ FULL STORY

Frank Ocean's rising tide: How the genre-bending hip-hop artist swam to the top of the Grammys

When the Grammy nominations were announced on Dec. 5, it read like a roll call of 2012 radio all-stars: fun., Mumford & Sons, Kelly Clarkson, Jay-Z. There was one outlier, though: Frank Ocean.

An artist without a single Hot 100 hit or a sold-out stadium tour or a basketball arena to call his own, Ocean is up for six awards, including Album of the Year for his transcendent debut, Channel Orange. It topped dozens of year-end critics’ lists (including this magazine’s) and was only recently certified gold, let alone platinum. So how did this 25-year-old soul man end up at the center of music’s biggest night?

Part of it has to do with the shifting nature of the Grammys themselves. READ FULL STORY

Cover up! No breasts, no buttocks, CBS says in wardrobe advisory email to Grammys contacts

Now that CBS has made it through Super Bowl XLVII without another boobgate, the network has turned its attention to the wardrobe matters of its next big broadcast: Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

CBS Standards and Practices sent an email to the Grammys staff late Tuesday night with a detailed “wardrobe advisory” for Sunday’s event. Deadline first obtained the email, which EW has confirmed did indeed go out to Grammys contacts last night.

Read CBS’ plea for a demure show below:
