Latest Lea Michele Magazine Controversy Not That Controversial
Why can't Glee star Lea Michele catch a break with parents? First, she posed in that scandalous GQ photo spread and then she allegedly snubbed True Grit sweetheart Hailee Steinfeld -- inciting the wrath of her fans' parents. Now, Cosmo magazine has unveiled its March cover, which shows the actress posing in a plunging neckline alongside headlines like "The Sex Quiz", "Get Naked," and Movieline HQ's personal favorite, "For His Thighs Only." Should we be surprised, and more importantly, should we be angry?
The consensus over here at Movieline is no, mainly because unlike the GQ photo spread, Michele is fully clothed -- not simulating fellatio on a lollipop and not posing spread eagle in a men's locker room. That's called progress, people! But some parents, who Fox News tracked down, did not share our opinion about the 24-year-old actress.
"It's irresponsible to be using an adult who represents a minor dressed in provocative clothes," Suzette Valle, a blogger and parent of two teenagers, told Fox News. "I think Cosmo is now taking advantage of the raucous GQ caused with their Glee cover and hoping to cash in on the press that got."
Listen, teenage girls are going to get their hands on Cosmo magazine regardless of who is on the cover, and every edition offers the same kind of randy advice about how to please your man sexually. Lea Michele is not exactly upending a respectable Cosmo tradition here! The real problem though might be that if parents have a problem with one plunging neckline, maybe they missed some of the racier Glee storylines -- about lesbian lip locks, teenage pregnancy, homosexuality in high school -- and coming this Sunday, Katy Perry-inspired breast pyrotechnics, which will get teenagers' hearts racing more than Lea Michele's tasteful cleavage.
