I’ve been holding off writing this post for as long as I could, but I feel it cannot wait any longer. Glee will always have a special place in each of our hearts for different reasons. We’ve all grown a little older, a little bolder and a little wiser. Glee has helped many along that journey. I know that we, here at ConfessedGleeks, have been a bit distant for the last couple of seasons but that’s just it: life. We move on, we grow and we rise.
Glee performing Loser Like Me was a big turning point for me. The episode aired just at a point when I needed it most. Everyone starts out as a “loser” in life. In many ways, I am proud to be a loser and I hope that I remain so at heart forever. In order to become something special, you have to start somewhere. We all have the potential to be a star. I just hope that as we all rise, we remember what it was like to be that loser.
Leap for your dreams. Aim for the stars and, even if you miss, you’ll be over the moon. I’ve spent the last two years of my life trying to make the most of each and every day. I can proudly say that I’ve owned every second that this world could give. There have been many highs and many lows. I’ve spent a lot of time recently fighting to get a new business off the ground (shameless plug – check out WaveWall). There have been sleepless nights, there have been tearful days and there have been many, many times when I have wanted to give up. But I haven’t given in. Now things are looking up for me. Keep on keeping on.
Even when it may seem as though the world is pressing down on you and there is no light at the end of the tunnel, remember that there is always someone out there for you. We are young, we are the dreamers, we will fly.
Glee is a world in which the quarterback can make friends with the gay kid. Although the world that we live in may not be as such, we can at least try to see the world not as it is, but as it should be.
Thank you for a wonderful journey over the past few years. Never stop believing.
Sadly one of our favorite Glee members has passed away, Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson on Glee) . Cory Monteith, aged 31, was found in his hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver around noon on Saturday sadly gone.
Staff of the hotel went to check on him when he hadn’t come down to check out.
News is he was “clearly deceased” when police arrived. TMZ reported that it was stated by the police ”he was in the room last night with some friends before the group hit the town … and he came back early this morning alone”.
No foul play is suspected … and cops say “it was not immediately apparent” what caused his death. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.”
“On behalf of the Vancouver Police, I want to pass on our condolences to the family, friends, castmates and millions of fans of Mr. Monteith,” acting chief Doug LePard said.
“As was the case in countless homes, I watched ‘Glee’ regularly with my daughters, and I know there will be shock and sadness in many households with the news of his tragic death.”
I think the most ironic detail about this incident is that the last time I reported back in April, Cory was heading into rehab to treat his drug addiction. We all thought he was going to be okay.
This has been one of the hardest events to process because at first it just didn’t make sense. Cory was so young and he was working on fixing his mistakes, it doesn’t seem fair.
As soon as the event was confirmed I thought about Lea. Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were planning a great life ahead of themselves together.
“I want to get married and have children and live happily ever after. That’s important to me.”
It’s hard to believe such an incredible journey of such a talented performer and actor has ended.
Gleeks everywhere have been given strength too by the trending hashtag on Twitter #StayStrongGleeksFromDirectioners. Many celebrities and YouTube stars have sent out their condolences and have rethought about how lucky they are to have such an incredible fan base.
YouTuber and Radio Personality, Ricardo Ordieres stated on his Twitter: “In times like these always remind your friends and loved ones how much you love and appreciate them… I love all of you so much.”
Entertainment guru, Perez Hilton stated on his Twitter: “One of his last Tweets. RT
@CoryMonteith sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! ” and “#LOVE”
All in all this has been a very emotional event. Our team here at Confessed Gleeks send out our sympathy and condolences to everyone who was ever known Cory or has been involved with his life. He leaves behind many of his great cast mates and crew of Glee and friends, his mother, who raised him by herself, his father and brother Shaun. Please be respectable and aid them all with privacy during this hard time.
But lastly I would like to say thank you. Thank you Cory for the lessons you have taught the Gleeks around the world, that it is ‘okay to be yourself and to pursue other interests as Finn did with Glee and football. It doesn’t matter what people think of you’.
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too, but for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it”.
Cory was such a genuinely nice guy and to have him gone is heartbreaking but he taught us many valuable life lessons.
We will miss you Cory.
But Thank You.
Not only this hit TV show is a favorite internet trend just like online poker, Justin Bieber, and even Candy Crush, news have been constant for this “spontaneous singing” high school and young adult personas. Whether you are on Facebook, YouTube, playing World of Warcraft or partypoker;, listening to Zedd in Soundcloud, or viewing reblogs of Liam Hemsworth in Tumblr, Glee will always be referenced in some way or another. Just like how poker can be easily learned online now, how Justin Bieber’s latest song can be so hated and loved all at the same time, and how the movie Pitch Perfect has become successful because of showcasing YouTube-inspired mashups, Glee is part of an ongoing culture that is staying still in this generation. So while you play a game of Omaha Hi-Lo or No Limit Hold’em, or writing about Naya Rivera in your blog, let’s see the latest on what’s happening on Glee.
Guess Who’s Coming Back
It’s not just Amber Riley who will be back to help out the New Directions. Kate Hudson will return with some revenge to dish out, that’s according to an article by Perez Hilton, showbiz gossip extraordinaire. As Perez puts it, “We knew we were in for a treat when we discovered that Amber Riley and her powerhouse vocal stylingz would be back on Glee this week for its new episode, Wonder-ful, to help the rest of her friends at New Directions pay tribute to the legendary Stevie Wonder, but we were NOT anticipating that returning guest star Kate Hudson would be back with some SERIOUSLY SOULFUL VENGEANCE herself!”
Friends Say He Looks Great
Who is? Cory Monteith, of course. NY Daily News web reporter Zayda Rivera headlines, “the actor was seen Friday with girlfriend Lea Michelle after finishing his second stint in treatment for substance addiction.” Monteith and his co-star/girlfriend Lea Michelle were both spotted in Los Angeles and were all smiles. The Glee star “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep told People in late March as reported by Rivera. “Sending out big love to everyone,” Monteith tweeted. “Thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me!”
And On The Next Episode
If you are a fan of classics sung by Stevie Wonder, this upcoming May 2 episode of Glee will be a treat. As reported by HollywoodLife.com;, FOX released the following to describe the episode. “The members of New Directions take on the greatest hits of music icon Stevie Wonder. Meanwhile, Artie receives news that could affect his future and his mom (guest star Katey Sagal). In New York, Rachel prepares for her ‘Funny Girl’ callback in the all-new Wonder-ful episode of GLEE airing Thursday, May 2.”
All that said, most of the songs of the new episode have now been released and Perez Hilton has it all tagged in his aforementioned article. Enjoy.
