I was just catching up on trashy magazines today (namely Rolling Stone and US Weekly).

According to US, Molly Ringwald is learning to play the ukulele.

And the guy who plays Will on "Glee," apparently auditioned for the show by playing "Over the Rainbow" as RS puts it, "...on something he calls an 'ook-a-lay-lay." So cool, not only does he play but he pronounces it the Hawaiian way. :)

I don't know if there's a big resurgence in uke playing, or if I'm just noticing it more now that I'm involved myself. You know that whole thing when you buy a new vehicle...all of the sudden you see them everywhere on the road.

Molly Ringwald has been playing or learning for a while. Here is a clip of her talking about it back in July of '08 and how she was inspired to learn by Julia Nunes

Wow, she is either very humble or a slow learner. She stated, "I'm trying to learn how to play the ukulele with marginal success." I just got the impression she was just learning.

I am guessing she either has little time or that she just doesn't take it all that seriously. Oh well, we all learn at our own pace.
