Sarah Colonna Has Such a Crush on Dave Grohl She Couldn't Talk to Him (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 3:30AM
'Chelsea Lately'Comedian Sarah Colonna admitted on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) that she really loves Dave Grohl. Only she didn't even realize quite how much. She assumed she was just a huge fan of his music.

"He came on and I was like, Oh now I'd like to--" she admitted.

When she did get the opportunity to talk to him, Grohl asked about the outfit she was wearing, and Colonna found herself so unable to speak, her friend Jen Kirkman had to jump in and save her. "Yeah, flip-flops," she finally got out ... which totally saved the moment, I'm sure.

Dave Grohl Says Bands Should Be Allowed to Say No to 'Glee' (VIDEO)

Dave Grohl, 'Chelsea Lately'Dave Grohl has seen about three minutes of 'Glee,' so he can't really talk about the content of the series, but there was one aspect of the show he felt he could comment about on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

"I read something that the creator of 'Glee' ... was kind of mouthing off about some friends of mine in rock bands," Grohl said. "I just think as a musician you should be able to say no. You should be able to say, 'no I don't want to do your show.'"

He then addressed the "F*** 'Glee'" comment he made to 'The Hollywood Reporter.' What he was trying to say was, "Why is that necessary for you ... as a rock musician in your career [to] have to say, 'Okay 'Glee,' take my song and turn it into a f****** musical.'"

Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters on 'Daily Show'The Foo Fighters performed on 'The Daily Show' (weekdays, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) as part of what Jon Stewart called "our latest installment of our band-a-year series." Between the songs "Bridge Burning" and "Arlandria" from the band's new album 'Wasting Light,' Stewart engaged Foo Fighters' front man Dave Grohl in some lighthearted banter about what was going on backstage.

"I've known you for a long time. You've been a rock star the whole long time. But, dude, not to blow the image -- backstage, it's like romper room back there. There must by 28 little kids," Stewart said.

Dave Grohl Burns Ryan Murphy: Dude, Maybe Not Everyone Loves 'Glee'

Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters, GleeDave Grohl really doesn't want Foo Fighters songs on 'Glee' -- he said so using some very harsh words directed toward the show's creator, Ryan Murphy.

The Foo Fighters frontman told the Hollywood Reporter at SXSW that his songs won't be getting 'Glee' cast versions anytime soon. Grohl admitted to having seen approximately 10 minutes of the show before determining that it wasn't his "thing."

"It's every band's right, you shouldn't have to do f---ing 'Glee.' And then the guy who created 'Glee' is so offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f---ing show ... f--- that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do 'Glee.'"

Review: 'Saturday Night Live' - Ashton Kutcher/Them Crooked Vultures

There was a different tone to this episode. The writing was a bit more ambitious than usual, going out on a limb a few times to tackle an idea that would require a little more work to get the laugh. It was admirable, sure, but a lot of the sketches still fell flat this week. It was strange. I also realize it's extra-weird if one considers my review of Ashton Kutcher's last stint on 'Saturday Night Live', in which I pondered out loud about whether or not he and the writers could have afforded to get a little wackier.

Kutcher's enthusiasm was nice to watch but the episode really felt mediocre. Maybe the low end of mediocre. Is that even a thing? Well, it is now.

Saturday Night Live: Jon Bon Jovi/Foo Fighters - VIDEOS

Jon Bon Jovi/Foo Fighters(S33E03) "Amy Poehler: 1986": I thought that this was a great choice for a cold open! A young, big-haired Amy Poehler being visited by a magical poster version of Jon Bon Jovi? Fantastic. In general, it was really cute and made me feel a little better about Bon Jovi's hosting abilities. I mean, not that it really mattered because he barely appeared in this episode, not counting the musical performances. Hey, whatever it takes to promote an album, right?

Lil' Bush: this summer's most rockin' show

Iggy PopOver the past few weeks, I have seen multiple commercials for Comedy Central's new animated show, Lil' Bush. It didn't even remotely interest me, because it simply sounded like a compilation of the easiest possible Bush jokes... "If you don't X, the terrorists win", "I'm the decider", etc. But as it turns out, I may have to give this show a try, because my life is dictated by rock and all things rocking.

In this recent interview with Fuse TV, Lil' Bush creator Donick Cary talked about the stars that have contributed their voices to the show. The list includes Frank Black, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dave Grohl. Also, Iggy Pop -- Iggy friggin' Pop -- plays Lil' Bush's buddy, Lil' Rummy.

Did Donald Rumsfeld just get a little cooler? Yeah, maybe.
