I’ve written about pop culture and Glee on this blog before, but nothing peaked my interest like the announcement that this Tuesday’s episode of Glee will feature Gwyneth Paltrow returning to show as substitute teach Holly Holiday, while teaching sex education to the students of New Directions.
I loved Paltrow’s performance last time, however I’m somewhat hesitant about this return performance. Glee is a fun show, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously, however pop culture is political, and representation of social issues on film impacts our opinions- and as a new friend mentioned on Twitter, you need qualifications to teach sex education.
Elizabeth Hundley Finley, Director of Strategic Communications for the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign, and I will be live-blogging the episode tomorrow night. I hope you will join us for the conversation! Out convo will be cross posted here and at the APPCNC Blog.
