Americana Redux

Sitting in a deluxe meeting room in an office in midtown Manhattan, David Lauren, an executive vice president of the Ralph Lauren Corp. and second son of the famous designer, does something you wouldn\'t expect of a fashion executive: he reveals that the elegant suit he has on—double-breasted and wide-lapelled in navy-blue wool, worn with a pin-dotted tie—is in fact 20 years old. He\'s not begging for a raise or showing off his thrift. He is demonstrating a truth about this moment in world...

Why We Love Teen Musicals

There are many charming things about Glee, Fox TV\'s quirky new fall comedy about a troupe of high-school misfits with gorgeous voices and hearts of gold. There are the one-liners that cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester lobs like poisoned pom-poms at her colleagues. There\'s the winsome Afterschool Special sincerity of teachers Emma and Will. Best of all, there\'s the glee club itself—baby diva Rachel, budding gay Kurt, artsy jock Finn—those fresh-faced kids with the fantastic vocal cords...

Attention 'Glee' Fans: A Hot Tub Cannot Get You Pregnant

Ok, Gleeks: we need to clear something up about last night's episode (everyone else may want to jump ahead a few paragraphs). The most preposterous thing in last night's episode of Glee, Fox's new hit musidey (comical? song-and-dancedy?) was not the football team dancing to "Single Ladies" during the big game. It was not Sandy Ryerson's shortie kimono. No, it was sweet, hot, dumb jock Finn believing that he got his girlfriend pregnant by kissing in a hot tub. They...

Jane Lynch: Glee-ful Scene Stealer

Jane Lynch has a stealing problem. Nothing that would get her arrested—she doesn't cheat on her taxes or, as far as we know, even take pens from restaurants. But make no mistake: she is one larcenous lady. To steal as often as this actress steals scenes in the many movies and television shows she's appeared in borders on compulsion. She stole a scene from Steve Carell in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, in which she played his lecherous supervisor. She inhaled all the oxygen in her scenes as part of...

Joshua Alston: FOX Series "Glee" Hits the Jackpot

They say there's no fool like an old fool, but to let pop culture tell the story, it's the singing fool who has the most egg on his face. There's Greg Gregson (Chris Lilley), the deluded high school drama teacher in Summer Heights High; his forebear Corky St. Clair (Christopher Guest) in Waiting for Guffman; and the tone-deaf hit parade of American Idol for the past eight seasons. In 2004, the WB ran Superstar USA, an Idol spoof in which the judges convinced the most awful...

Moms Get Down at Rock and Roll Camp

Mary Clement\'s right hand shakes uncontrollably; the piece of white paper she's holding flaps like a flag of surrender. Her left hand grips the microphone and, heart racing, she keeps on singing. The song is called "Then There's Us," a Ramones-y punk number that Clement performs, only a touch off-key, while her band, Bad Chem­istry, keeps the beat behind her. Clement, 43, has good reason to be on edge: she's a mother of eight who's never sung in front of a live audience before, and her band...

Mail Call: Criminal Or Victim?

The Martha Stewart verdict led many readers of our March 15 story to take sides. "As a former stockbroker she should've known better," scolded one. "She broke the rules and then denied it," concurred another. "But prison?" responded a third who found the punishment far in excess of the crime.Stir In a ConvictionI'm tired of hearing people make fun of Martha Stewart ("Martha Falls to Earth," March 15). She built an empire from scratch! People buy her magazine because it is about living. I can't...
