‘Glee’ star Matthew Morrison spoke with More! magazine about meeting Cheryl Cole on the set of ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, where both he and the Girls Aloud star have roles in the Kirk Jones directed movie.
“I’m usually good with accents, but it did take me a second,” Morrison said about Cheryl’s accent. “It was actually really refreshing to meet her, because as someone who comes to London a lot, you can’t leave there without hearing about Cheryl Cole – she’s everywhere. So it was great to have a conversation with her as a human being and to get to know her. She was lovely… and so beautiful.”
Matthew Morrison did a live set for AOL’s ‘Sessions’, including performances of ‘Summer Rain’, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, ‘My Name’, ‘Still Got Tonight’, and a medley of ‘Don’t Stand So Close to Me’ and ‘Young Girl’.
During an interview, the ‘Glee’ star talked about wanting to do the songwriting himself to avoid it being viewed as a ‘Glee’ album, having a respect for the songwriting process, ‘Summer Rain’ being based on his time on his apartment roof with his girlfriend in New York City, how the thought of singing the album’s songs on tour is kind of scary, being excited to see what his fan base is on tour, and basing his ‘Glee’ character on two teachers that he’s had.
The performance and interview at AOL.com has since been removed.
For three days before Matthew Morrison’s Details cover shoot, the ‘Glee’ star ate nothing but sweet potatoes. “I had to have a six-pack on show,” Morrison the Sunday Mirror. “The potato acts as a sponge and your body literally shrinks and gets ripped and tight.”
Kristin Chenoweth did a YouTube interview with Matthew Morrison, asking the ‘Glee’ star questions submitted by fans. He talked about guilty pleasures, his most embarrassing moment, his closest friends being in high school and college, his tattoos, listening to dark music when he’s had a bad day, preferring crunchy peanut butter, having input in ‘Glee’ song selections, how Patrick Swayze got him into dance, and how the ‘Glee’ recording process differed from his debut album. “For ‘Glee’, you go in and you’re in the studio for probably an hour,” Morrison said. “Everything is kind of done for you. We have people that sing the demos beforehand and you’re supposed to copy them… Personally and for my album, it’s so much more because you have so much input on it. What strings your playing. What you want to hear. Arrangements, just everything. Everything you want. That’s the best thing about the songwriting process, you’re really creating something out of nothing. Once you have a song at the end of the day, it’s like ‘I made this up.'” Watch the interview below.
