Though they had previously distanced themselves from the project in order to focus on the main show, Murphy and Glee executive producer Dante Di Loreto have agreed to executive-produce the reality program for Oxygen. In addition to running the reality contest in June, Oxygen will begin airing reruns of Glee in early February.

In other Glee news, several cast members, including Jane Lynch and Lea Michele, will make cameo appearances in this Sunday's episode of The Cleveland Show. This is the second time Glee has crossed over to one of Fox's animated series. Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley popped up as cartoon versions of their characters on an episode of The Simpsons that aired in September.

Song Stories

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
