Singer Josh Groban left the set of Jenny McCarthys new TV talk show earlier this month after discovering that go-go dancers would be a part of the taping. The 31 year-old star, who just released his fifth album, was scheduled to make an appearance on the debut episode of McCarthys VH1 show, but walked out just a few minutes before taping began, saying it was too racy for his tastes.
He did show up, [but] I think the go-go dancers [his team] took a look at and thought they were a little too sexy for their taste, McCarthy told Access Hollywood Live.
According to the Christian Post, McCarthy brags that her show is modeled after Playboy After Dark, a show made by the pornographic magazine that shares its name. The Huffington Post said Groban decided to back out once he saw the questions McCarthy planned to ask him. McCarthys sister, celebrity beauty artist JoJo McCarthy, filled Grobans guest slot at the last minute.
McCarthys ties to Playboy go way back: Before becoming a talk show host and actress, she worked as a model for the magazine. It isnt clear why she would invite a singer known for his classical aesthetic and traditionally conservative fans to her show.
Groban was raised by Episcopalian parents and also has Jewish roots. He has made no public statement about his faith, but enjoys a sizable Christian audience. So far he hasnt made any public statement about his decision to walk away from the McCarthy appearance.
I wonder why he agreed to go there in the first place?
Must be gay.
go-go dancers? Is this article from 1965?
Anything involving Jenny McCarthy is guaranteed to have elements of sleaze involved somewhere.
RE: I wonder why he agreed to go there in the first place?
It says in the article:
” after discovering that go-go dancers would be a part of the taping.”
That has been McCarthy’s MO practically her entire career. If taste and decorum are important to him then he never should have agreed to appear on her show.
Groban is also wise... his base(fans) would have hated the sleeze of it..
AT least most of them.. nice to know he has some balls..
Bad Sign for McCarthy skank review..”Dissed by Groban”..
He’s still a young man and not as worldly wise as many people in the entertainment industry should be. Give him credit for having some standards. I find that absolutely refreshing in a day and age when the only standards most people in entertainment have is what it will do to make them money and/or promote their career.
does he not know who Jenny McCarthy is?
Playboy TV is hard core porn, not just naked women
Great voice, one of my favorites.
I believe Groban just turned 30, so he is no immature Justin Bieber. He is a talented performer who has principles and knows his audience.
It is a testament to the days in which we live when a person with moral standards is seen as a freakshow and Jenny McCarthy is not.
The tittle should have been. Josh Grogan Stiffs McCarthy...
