Lea Michele was the highlight of "Glee's" touching Cory Monteith tribute episode. When she appeared on Thursday's show, standing eyeing the flowers and mementos at Finn's locker, it was a showstopping moment that reflected Lea's real-life experience.

"Glee" fans know that Lea drove by the impromptu memorial for Cory that grew outside Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel days after his death. When she told a McKinley High cheerleader that "it's beautiful, I just had to see it," referring to the Finn locker display, she was absolutely voicing how she felt about the fans' memorial. -- Bonnie FullerBonnie Fuller is president and editor-in-chief of HollywoodLife.com and the former editor of Star, Us Weekly, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire magazines.Clarkson explains joke

Kelly Clarkson sat down with "Extra" the other night to discuss her dig about "pitchy strippers" at the Video Music Awards.

"I guess I saw about six performances and I was just being funny," Kelly said. "Everybody says stuff and I didn't even put names on it. People did not think it was funny. I did. That's OK, I make myself laugh."
