Oh, I think MS did that long before GT came along. Not really looking forward to a Phick or Phack reunion (although Peter Bergman made her almost tolerable), so I guess my fast-forward button will be getting a workout once she shows up.
Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born are dramas about musicians. This doesn't make them musicals. Mary Poppins Returns is a musical. I found Vice darkly funny but it's kind of in a weird place between comedy & drama. It also almost had a musical scene.
Merriam-Webster says its first known use was in 1951 and may have come from a creature in the 1950 Dr. Seuss book If I Ran a Zoo.
This website says its use as a term for an uncool, unhip person began in Detroit in 1951 and spread from there.

Harriet Sansom Harris is a Julliard-trained actress who has appeared in several Broadway shows (and countless television series, including the role of Felicia Tilman on Desperate Housewives). She won the 2002 Best Featured Actress In a Musical Tony Award for her performance in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Not exactly stunt casting.
