Speaking out about the death of Cory Monteith, Glee creator Ryan Murphy has revealed how the show will handle the loss of one of its biggest stars.Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that he and the rest of the cast are still grieving: "It's always sad and shocking when somebody so young dies."
"One of the things that made it even more upsetting is that so many of us who knew and loved him were actively involved in trying to get him better. When you're faced with something so sad and so shocking, what do you do? Do we cancel the show? Do we start shooting in January? What do we do?"
"The right thing to do for the show, at this point, is to have that character pass," Murphy says of his plans for the premiere, which was pushed back a week. "Ultimately, we decided the best thing for everyone is to get back to work and be around people who knew him and loved him so that everyone can grieve together."
"When we do a tribute episode to [his] character, we'll do it in a way where the cast will not have to re-create feelings of grief they’ve had this week, but do it in an upbeat way." Murphy says the role of Finn Hudson, McKinley High's football star-turned-glee clubber, will not be re-cast, and the season's third episode will be a tribute. Murphy said he told Cory Monteith's costar and real-life girlfriend, Lea Michele, that he would understand if she didn't want to return to Glee this fall. She said that was not an option, however, and will be back. Glee returns Thursday, October 26.

A larger-than-life poster of Katy Perry has caused a minor rift between some Michigan State University students and East Lansing officials. According to MLive.com, it all started when eight students hung the 90-square-foot poster -- a gift from one of their grandmothers -- in the front of their rental home in August of 2012. They took it down the subsequent winter, but the poster made a comeback in the spring. In June, an officer from East Lansing's Parking and Code Enforcement informed the students that a resident had complained about the poster and that it violated a city code. The students were instructed to remove the poster. One of the students, Adam Dimitry, says he and his housemates spoke to a couple of city departments, and "Everyone had a different reason why they wanted us to take the sign down -- it was flammable, it was blocking windows, it wasn't mounted anywhere. All those were false, and we were quite upset." Nevertheless, the students complied with the order, and took down the poster. However, they launched a petition on Change.org. To make a long story short, they reached an agreement with a community development analyst for the city that will permit them to hang the poster on football weekends. It must be taken down by the following Monday. Dimitry would like to think that Katy would be happy with the students’ efforts to protect their poster. He says, "We're big fans. She's a creative artist and a very beautiful woman, and we'd be proud to have her support."
