Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
In a typical television season, there are usually only two or three decent shows mixed among a giant glut of non-starters. But this season has been different, having already delivered the sharp comedy "Modern Family," the excellent sci-fi remake "V" and the inconsistent but interesting psychodrama "Flash Forward." Of course, there is still plenty of garbage out there — just watch 30 seconds of "Accidentally on Purpose" for proof. By far this season's breakout new show is "Glee," the witty, biting comedy that skews high school life, theater geeks and pop music in a rapid-fire stew that is pretty irresistible. What's most impressive is that the show manages to juggle so many characters, each of which have a distinct personality and any of whom could become breakout stars. It helps that they've been committed to getting out and meeting fans, which they did yesterday at the ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles. Stars Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Chris Colfer showed up to get the word out about the TV season's best new show — one that will hopefully have a long, brilliant broadcast life.
In other star news yesterday, Rihanna paid a visit to the awards show and party hosted by Glamour magazine in New York, while Shakira celebrated her cover of Rolling Stone with a fete just across town.
