'Glee' pays Kandi's 'Bills, Bills, Bills'

Posted By on Mon, Feb 7, 2011 at 7:29 PM

Last night after the Super Bowl, Fox aired an episode of that "Glee" show because, I'm guessing, the network has had a hard time converting its prototypical Sunday night football-watching demographic over to a weekly TV series in which the cast regularly breaks out in song and dance.

Which is funny because I was just joking the other day that "Real Housewives of Atlanta" probably forced a lot of dudes in Atlanta out of the closet this season, what with it's Sunday night scheduling conflict with professional football and all. Not to say that a man's sexuality can be determined by something as simple as his DVR playlist. And even if that were true, it would be a serious toss-up between that flaming hot-mess of a reality show, "RHOA," and the NFL's weekly humpfest of swollen, ass-grabbers chasing behind each other in sweaty tights and shoulder pads.

But yeah, since "RHOA" was on pause last night (the season-ending reunion show airs next Sunday, so set your DVR early, yo), Fox went for the trifecta with a little pigskin, a lotta "Glee," and a taste of some Kandi Koated Nights. Indeed, "RHOA" cast mate Kandi Burruss got some major play on "Glee" when the show's cast performed "Bills, Bills, Bills," the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated 1999 hit she penned with Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs for Beyoncé's former group Destiny's Child.

So even on her off-night, Ms. Burruss got paaaay'd. Her recently released album, Kandi Koated, might not be selling like hotcakes, but with all the zeros she's gonna see on her next royalty statement her haters can sit down and STFU.

Here's what she had to say about the "Glee" performance in a statement released by her publicist:


Actually, it went something like this:

"I was smiling from the inside out watching it. I loved it! Anytime someone performs a song that I helped create it makes me really proud. Glee did a great job on their vocal arrangements. I really liked how the background singers were singing all the instrumental parts except for one drum sound. That was really hot!"

In other words: CH-CHING BITCHES!!!

Peep the original Destiny's Child video for "Bills, Bills, Bills" below. And I don't know but I think the "Glee" boys choir may have bested Lady Bey and them — not that I be watching musicals or nothing like that. What'chu think?
