Glee had their extended “Born This Way”-themed episode last night, and besides the episode’s big Lady Gaga number, the cast also danced to Duck Sauce’s “Barbra Streisand” (which has been everywhere lately) and sang Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers.” Check out video and audio of the tracks below:
“I Follow Rivers”
Speaking of Lykke Li, the singer had to cancel some upcoming live dates because of injury and illness. She (sort of) explained in a blog post on her website:
I had some kind of complete meltdown on Marks&Spencer in Glasgow on one of those very rare days off while on route. For various reasons, various hardships sneaked up on me and I was standing at an isle contemplating life and death and the struggles of being an artist/soul/woman/human being when the overbearingness sneaked up on me like Batman himself. I fell to the floor and so did the raspberries I had in my hand, the troubled breathing lead to some severe lumbago which ment I couldn’t move and had to lay straight for a few days. In a valium haze I took a flight back to my loved ones where a strong man cracked my holy spine loose and I was soon able to walk again. Little did I know it was my troubled hip joint that was the problem in the first place, so had to go back to a horizontal mode. My body then decided Easter was the perfect time to let a god damn flu blossom out, so I spent the whole easter praying to God to get better, drinking ginger tea while watching Apocalypse Now wishing nothing more then that I could have been on that stage with you.
She ends by saying that the dates will be rescheduled soon, quoting some Rilke, and promising that the video to “Sadness Is A Blessing” will be here soon.
