Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

I'm always leery of these vague articles that make a lot of insinuations. There's one quote from Miley:

Honestly, musicals? I just can't.What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes? [...] It would get hits on YouTube.
which is a valid POV even if you don't agree with it. She never mentions Glee, or that she "hates" it, you have to trust the article that it's what she's saying when more than likely she just hasn't watched it because the genre isn't her cup of tea.

I don't mind classic musicals from late 30's, 40's & 50' etc...the stuff coming out now is pure garbage...IMHO. Plus Glee & High School Musical are based on HS chorus groups and that doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

Indeed. I couldn't care if Ms Cyrus is a fan or not. I enjoy it, and that what matters to me.

The rights to songs often belong to the record companies, not to the artists. While the artists may get a royalty from a song's use, they generally don't have control over where and when the song is licensed for use.

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

1) Miley is entitled to her own opinion, however uninformed it might be.

2) Hermiod is entitled to his own opinion, however uninformed it might be.

3) I am entitled to my own opinion, however uninformed it might be.

That said, I love Glee. I think it's brilliant. I guess I can see what it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I just don't get the hate. It's damn TV show. If you don't like it, don't fucking watch it.

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

I'm not a fan, myself. I find it comes off as rather cheesy, and I don't like the style of music they do, either. To each their own, however.

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

Since it seems to be a requirement for fans of certain shows that others must watch their show before they comment, I offer this:

I've seen Glee.

It is self-important pablum.

It's what you get when writers and producers try to prove how hip and witty they are.

I would rather invite Klansmen to my home than watch it regularly.

But I have watched it. Satisfied?

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

Again, as I said ... it's your choice as to whether you like it or not. I certainly don't begrudge you your choice. I think it's a much more informed opinion you have come to if you've watched the show and still don't like it, but even the people who don't like it, don't watch it because they don't like it, or don't like it without having ever seen an episode --- all's fair in love and television.

I just don't understand the people who go out of their way to piss and moan about it (or whatever show of the week we're discussing) to the extent of raining on everyone else's parade.

Then again, your sig quotes Warped9, who suffers from precisely this problem, so maybe my words don't count for much...

Gotcha.
Wow. Anger issues? Jeez.

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

It's fine to have a negative opinion.

It's ridiculous to have one about a show you've never even seen, criticize it for shit that doesn't make any sense because you haven't seen it, and then go out of your way to bitch and moan about it any time the topic comes up despite your blatant and unquestionable ignorance on the subject.

Oh, and intolerance of bullshit does not equal anger.

Re: Miley Cyrus Comes Forward As A 'Glee' Hater

Well, I'm going to be busy for a while since I now have to watch every minute of television ever broadcast in order to know whether or not I want to watch it.

Still waiting for someone to tell me where I actually criticised Glee beyond saying it's not my sort of show - just as Ms. Cyrus did. Up until this morning I was under the impression that it was okay to choose to watch a show or not based on things like reviews and trailers.

Edit - Checkmate, show me the post where I criticised the show. You do understand the difference between not wanting to watch a show and hating it, right?
