I have no investment in the show "Glee." At all. I like Jane Lynch but I am not a fan of them butchering songs I'd otherwise enjoy. The sole exception being "Forget You" by Gwyneth Paltrow (ha!)
However Cory Monteith struck me as a genuinely nice guy - you rarely see celebrities who seem like they wouldn't be douches in real life - and I was shocked when I heard about his personal demons earlier this year. Like I read a lot about celebrities so I came into contact with this.
And I was horrified to read about his death yesterday. RIP Cory.
