Following a public feud that saw Glee creator Ryan Murphy publicly accuse Kings of Leon of being “self-centered assholes” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and Nathan Followill respond via Twitter that Murphy should “see a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra,” the two parties have now decided to make nice. The whole kerfuffle started when KoL declined to allow “Use Somebody” to appear in an episode. Words were exchanged; social media used to lob insults. Murphy later apologized, telling THR that, “I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit…We’d love to do one if their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it’s not their thing, then okay. I personally wish them luck will still listen to their music.” And I guess Kings of Leon have accepted the olive branch, in their way, according to Rolling Stone, which spoke to the band at Coachella:
“I’m glad he said something. We don’t hold grudges,” said singer Caleb Followill.
Drummer Nathan Followill added, “I’ll just be glad when I can check my Google alerts and don’t have to read anything about us and Glee. That’ll be a wonderful feeling.”
It’s good to know that in these times of war and international strife, Kings of Leon and Glee are working on their very own peace process. World, take note!
