Fug the Cover: Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith, and Lea Michele


Don’t even get me started. No, seriously. Don’t get me started on this. Yes, GQ, the PERFECT person to shoot a cover and editorial spread about a show about teenagers is TERRY RICHARDSON, who’s recently enjoyed a tidal wave of press about how he is TOTALLY GROSS to all the underage models who are sent to him! WHAT AN AWESOME PLAN. And what is YET AWESOMER is to decide that the women on Glee should pose COMPLETELY SCANTILY CLAD as if they were washed up WB starlets angling for the cover of Maxim circa 1999.

Look, I get that GQ is kind of lad-mag adjacent and that the people on Glee are of age, but when you look at this cover and the shots inside and Dianna Agron looks like a nun simply because she’s wearing BOTTOMS, maybe we’ve crossed a PR-bridge too far. After all, when you’ve got Lea Michele making her Victoria’s Secret face on the cover in her underpants, do you ALSO need her to be eating a lollipop in her panties inside? And also eating a lollipop in her panties with her legs spread and playing with her hair? And, oh, just standing around in her panties — sans lollipop this time, but threatening to take off her top? I don’t mean to strangle myself with these pearls that I’m clutching BUT COME ON. You can be cute and you can be sexy and you can be alluring and you can still wear something other than your panties in every single shot in a national magazine, especially when the other people in the spread range from COMPLETELY (Cory) to kinda (Dianna) clothed. I don’t blame Lea Michele for this — although I have to admit that my reaction to these pictures was to say, “oh, god. She really IS unbearable.” — but I do blame SOMEONE for not saying, “hey, this show is all about how cool it is to be different and talented, so maybe our lead actress — who is crazy talented and would be even if she were wearing a zombie costume — doesn’t need to be styled like the most important thing about her is her body, just like every other anonymous sexpot in every other lad mag in the world. LET’S TRY A SHOT WITH SOME PANTS TERRY YOU DISGUSTING OLD GOAT.”

I need to go breathe into a bag now. What do you think?

    SO MUCH EW. EW EW EW EW EW.
    THIS IS SO WRONG.

    not to mention how insanely sexist it is for the man to just stand there COMPLETELY CLOTHED while the ladies gyrate half naked against his legs and he just gives a shifty leer and grabs their bums.

    i feel old and crotchety and horrified, and i am NINETEEN YEARS OLD. gross.

    I totally agree it seems totally unnecessary. She does seem like she’s trying to hard to be sexy when she doesn’t need to – it’s all about the naturalness Lea!. It’s a WEIRD shoot

    Lea just went on the record saying how proud she is of Glee for being a model for teenagers and how proud she is of herself for not getting a nose job, and then she does this??
    This is gross. He is disgusting. They should have refused to work with him.
    This really bothers me.

    Though I am not on the side of the PTC that thinks the photo shoot is pedophilic and will lead all teenage Glee fans to become sex maniacs, especially since the actors are all in their twenties and have faith that viewers can separate fiction from reality; I do think that it appears… desperate. And contrived. And way overdone. A lollipop? Really? Lea’s o-face is just way too much.

    I’m so glad you said it first! I’m not quite shocked, but really I would expect this level of ew factor from Maxim, not GQ. Get it together, guys!
    And, Glee, you’re better than this. Even if you aren’t actually in high school, go talk to your parents, hug your teddy bear, have a graham cracker and slow down. Please!

    I completely agree. I totally love Glee, but I find these pictures inappropriate. All 3 actors are of age, but they are not posing as themselves, they are posing as their Glee characters, who are still underage high school students. I love Leah Michele, she is super talented, but I don’t understand how she and Dianna Agron could ever think this is a good idea.

    HUZZAH! HUZZAH!

    This is an absolutely horrible editorial, and not just because, oh I don’t know, pick either Terry Richardson or Glee’s PR machine or possibly Lea Michele’s absolute desperation. It’s just because OH MY GOD, GROW UP, GQ. Also, never hire Terry Richardson again, because he is a goddamn molester who by all accounts should’ve already been charged for his behavior.

    I agree! I’m the same age as these girls – I understand the desire to feel sexy and young – but this is TOO much. Monteith looks decent and VERY stylish in these photos – how come they couldn’t have done the same for these two lovely, uber-talented ladies?

    I highly doubt that most of GQ’s target demo don’t watch Glee. And Lea is thisclose to (pun intended) overexposure. And she’s just trying too hard. Cory was wearing so many layers, he could’ve at least lent a shirt to each of the girls.

    I could understand a sexy photoshoot if it was actually sexy, but this isn’t. Everyone looks awkward/uncomfortable/trying-too-hard. The inside photos are even worse.

    Is this GQ’s way of announcing they are ditching the ‘adjacent’ and going completely down-market and becoming a lad-mag? Because the non-idea behind this shoot is totally out-of-gas and lame and beyond unoriginal.

    What strikes me is the difference between Lea Michele’s photos and the other two. Was she the only one willing to go that far, or the only one asked?

    She’s so talented, I don’t understand why she would be willing to come across as just another cute girl trying too hard to get attention.

  30. MelissaW

    Lea doesn’t even look attractive – it’s like she’s making the face ANTM contestants think they’re making when they’re trying to look “sexy” and “sultry” before Tyra gives them a lesson on fierce-ness – and she’s gorgeous in every other picture she’s been in.

    Also, BS on Cory being completely clothed (and I agree that Dianna looks oddly chaste since she’s wearing more clothes than Lea).

    The only way this could have been a more awkward spread was to have Matt Morrison in the shoot and it veered waaaay too far into “naughty teacher”-dom.

    (also, WTF is up with knee socks and open-toe heels? nasty)

    What the hell happened to feminism? What happened to class acts, why don’t women respect themselves anymore? This chick can sing…she has real talent, why does she have to suck a lollipop and spread her skinny legs. She’s not remotely sexy, she reminds me of Christina Aquilera in her dirty period, desperate to be the “hot” one, and failing in a way she may one day regret. Totally gross.

    I’m with Kristina. Why is Terry Richardson considered original? He resorts to the same gimmicks for every photo shoot he does. And each one looks like an amateurishly lit American Apparel Ad.

    Putting aside the grossness that is Terry Richardson, the whole thing is just so uncreative. Like, “Hey, they play high school kids on TV. You know what would be wild? If we shot them as SEXY high school kids!” Mind = not blown.

    Yup – wrong, absolutely and completely wrong. I have no problem with sexy photos in general, but in this instance it’s disgusting. Yes, LM is a beautiful, talented young woman, but she’s playing a teenager and the show is targeted at teenagers – who do you think is going to pick up this magazine and look at it? Probably young, impressionable girls, who see the stars of their favorite show on a magazine cover and then get smacked in the face with these “sexy! hot! slutty!” photos. ONCE AGAIN the media implies that girls can only be cool if they are sexy, hot and slutty. It’s infuriating.

    I don’t watch this show and am not personally invested in these actors’ lives. And it’s not anything we haven’t seen before. But I guess I feel bummed I guess that Lea Michele, especially, decided to go along with these pictures–if they don’t bug me for being trashy they bug me for being so cliche. I just question her train of thought between agreeing to wear the panties and socks and shoes to spreading her legs to the lollipop to agreeing to being photographed like that to agreeing to have it published. I just wonder what she was thinking this would do for her. I think I would actually respect her more if she just did a straight-up Playboy shoot.

  49. Jovial

    It just reeks of desperation. The shoot is tired and actually quite obvious. Wouldn’t it be nice if just once some one could do a tasteful pictorial of young Hollywood instead of the same old “look we are super young and super sexah!”. Are women with talent, brains (although this is questionable due to the fact that they agreed to this) and beauty so threatening to the modern man that these atributes must be, literally, stripped away to make them appealing? GAH! In the words of Lisa Simpson, we CAN better ourselves. Ok rant over.

    I do think this is borderline pedophillic. The sensationalized, sexualized image here is…. wait for it… semi-nude high school girls! The double standard that the male in the shoot is full clothed while the females claw at him like porn stars is outrageous. I’m not sure if I will boycott Glee or magazines that hire Terry Richardson. I would say this was just a big trap and that the actresses shouldn’t be held accountable, but this is their image. Don’t they have “people” they pay to deal with this shit?!?

    “Making her Victoria’s Secret face…” ahahahahaha!!

    For real. Not only is it wrong on so many levels (*pearl clutching*),as an editorial, it feels dated. Can’t we get some new fetishes up in this joint? Maybe they could wear fur suits. ;)
    In all seriousness, I’ve had it with Lolita-ism. I find this sort of infantilizing of women obnoxious and uncalled for.

    Way to empower young women and show them that with hard work, talent, and ambition (“T&A,” as GQ would put it), they can become successful enough to appear in magazines en deshabille, sucking on a lollipop while a coworker puts his hand on their asses. That’s the hope we need for the youth of today.

    Right there with you on this Fug Girls. Saw these pics yesterday and my thoughts alternated between, “Wow. Way to keep it classy” and “Does she wear nothing but panties as bottoms in *every single shot*?” And for a shoot that’s trying so hard to be sexy, every select they picked is terribly unflattering and unsexy. I don’t know how the photographer and editorial team managed to do that when the subjects are three attractive young adults!

    Ditto to everything above and two additions.

    Yes all three are old enough to pose anyway they want, but the pictures are taken in a obvious high school type setting, ala their teenage Glee characters.

    And just a few months ago Lea made a statement that she wouldn’t be comfortable doing one of those PETA anti-fur ads, even though she supports the anti-fur campaign. But now she is doing a Maxim style shoot for what? Money? PR?

    It just shows a total lack of conviction and thought. Even if they were pushed into it by the show/network, they are adults and can say No.

    It is a top rated show and they are three of the stars. I don’t think their jobs would be in jeopardy for saying no to one photo shoot.

Even if it weren’t for all the sexual harassment charges, which on their own should be damning enough, one would think, his limited “vision” is absurd. COME ON. SNORE. We’ve seen all this scantily clad claptrap before. It’s all Richardson does. It’s not clever. It’s not a point of view. And yet editors keep rewarding him for this by hiring him. I call BS.

    Basically ditto. It’s depressing because it reeks of desperation and flys in the face of everything “Glee” pretends to be about. I mean blah blah blah women owning their sexuality blah blah blah and all but bottom line, Lea Michele comes across as pathetic, not empowered. And as noted many times, it’s porr idea + poor execution. Her poses and facial expression are uncomfortable and cartoonish.

    I would love to know whether this was Dianna giong “Yeah, I’ll be keeping my bottoms on, thanks anyway” or Lea preventing Dianna from being equally unclothed because Lea wanted all the attention.

    Regardless of what the truth is, this shoot reinforce my belief that Lea Michele has to go to be an absolute nightmare of a human being.

    I’m consistently amazed by how many young female actors do “sexy” photo shoots (as well as when they get older, and need to show they are still sexy). There are some very smart, very talented, award-winning young women who pose for Maxim’s hot list, or classed up, but unclothed, in VF. It seems like a professional requirement. I don’t know if they feel they have no choice, they actually feel hot and awesome doing it, or they’re just pushing product. It is hard to think of a leading lady under 40 who hasn’t posed more or less unclothed.

    This spread is just near the extra icky end of an unfortunate continuum.

    I’m bored. Seriously. Total snore.

    Like others have said: oh look, another genetically blessed and young female in Hollywood – shock. Oh look, she’s posing half naked to prove she’s naughty and not so nice. Yeah…

    It just feels desperate, not naughty, not fresh, not cute, not sexy, not fun – just desperate and boring and stale. Is that how you want people to feel when you pose in your underwear with your best “O-Face” on???

    And, as others have said: she doesn’t even look that naughty. The shots are awkward – I think she’s a pretty girl, but had I been in her shoes and had shots turn out like this, I would have been horrifically embarrassed at my attempt at “sexy” and probably would have tried to get out of whatever agreement I had with GQ…

    It’s like those bad self shots you take that you immediately delete from your camera/phone so that NO one ever has to see how seriously awkward and unsexy you are when you try to look “hot.”

    Yikes.

    And that photographer is seriously gross – if I had to take half naked shots in front of a guy that looked that creepy (even without his prior indiscretions), I would walk out – no matter what my contract said. Ew.

    Terry Richardson is a slimeball. GQ usually has some beautifully shot spreads with fully clothed men in them (actually most of their covers are of this variety) and it seems when they want to put a woman on the cover, the shoot some creepy underage schoolgirl fantasy.

    Not to mention the objectification and sexualization of women and the implication that in order to be noticed you have to have an open legged crotch shot on a bench. There is sexy and there is vulgar, this is vulgar.

    I think that the PR folks at Glee should be fired over this. Clearly this was about the show (given the huge GLEE on the cover).

    It makes me think far less of Lea Michelle who clearly is just as vapid and self-obsessed as all of the other less talented attn whoring young starlet wannabees out there. Shame on you Ms Michelle. Wanting to be sexy is one thing, wanting to be spank material to a bunch of creepy old dudes with schoolgirl fantasies is another.

    Right on, everyone. This reminds me of the time the cast of Gossip Girl posed in their underwear on a bed on the cover of some magazine, including Momsen who was 14 at the time…and we all know how that turned out (lingerie and WEAPONS). But GG is a stupid show about pretty people wearing pretty clothes and I wanted to think Glee was better than that…guess not. The skeezy stench of desperation is all over this shoot – and how embarrassed does Dianna Agron look in EVERY SINGLE SHOT? Just no. No.

    The GQ-ites are going to read the reaction to this as “You people can’t handle the sexy.” when in fact the problem is that the shoot reflects a 1970s-prepubescents vision of sexy* that is reductionist of where women, photography AND sexy are today. THAT’s what people are reacting to: that this shoot is lame, pathetic and reactionary — it is the sexy equivalent of the Tea Party.

    * That’s all T.Richardson does — caters to the wishful goshdarn-it-I-was-it-was-still-1970-and-the-chicks-were-still-Stepfordy fantasies of old dudes. Thanks @Cristina, the tarring/feathering/railing ritual should be brought back just this once especially for Richardson. But given known actors’ public defense even of Polanski, I won’t hold my breath.

    This is the stuff I always associate with morons like Britney Spears (because she’s always been a commodity moved around by men), but is a little surprising coming from Michelle, whom I’ve always thought was highly ambitious. It’s a little counterintuitive for the current frontrunner for the role of movie Elphaba, isn’t it?

    I’d expect this from someone like, say, Vanessa Hudgens, who doesn’t have much talent to trade on and has to do what she can for attention while she can, but Michelle has more than her newly-emaciated body to flaunt around. Or maybe she doesn’t, and that’s the point of this spread. Oh well. Just another cheap starlet showing her ass. NEXT.

  86. SharonCville

    Ditto to everything. SO disappointed! I just can’t believe that Michele doesn’t have someone– an agent? a FRIEND?– who could take one look at her proposed “wardrobe” (panties, bra, torn shirt, knee socks and high heels) and say, “Where’s the rest of it?” and “NO!” My problem is that not only do the photos have a skeevy, soft-porn vibe, they aren’t even good. They’re just stupid.

    As a Broadway star, Lea Michele was talented and confident. Like many others before her, she has fallen victim to “Hollywoodification,” which renders talented, confident young women totally desperate and insecure. This cover is ridiculous. I agree with many of you.

    Wow, I am so impressed by another sexy photo shoot. Desperate and contrived is right. And as long as they are doing sexy, what is with Agron’s skirt? Is this supposed to convince me she’s the “innocent one”, is Lea Michele’s lollipop supposed reinforce this? Ugh. It’s just soooooo cliche and it’s making me really sick of Lea Michele. I get it, you’re attractive. You don’t need to fly the flag in my face constantly, I believe you.

    Considering the “models” in question are supposed to be teenagers, it makes me sick to my stomach.

    Yes, yes, yes, I know. This is EXACTLY what the average male teenager wants. Pandering.

    But seriously? More “underage” skin for dirty old men? Since morality and decency no longer exist, how about done to death, give it a rest.

    I agree completely! When I first saw Lea Michele yesterday I was pretty shocked. I can compare Dianna in her cute/sexy cheerleader outfit and Lea’s over-the-top underwear ‘outfit’ to how I feel about my recent foray into dance lessons: pole dancing is raunchy and obvious, and belly dancing is sensual and subtle.

    horrible, horrible, horrible. sooo dated, sooo uncomfortable-looking, sooo effing stupid. terry richardson: you are not arty because you take lo-fi pictures of scrawny naked people posed in front of chipped-plaster walls. mutton chops! plaid! ’70s glasses frames! dirty motel carpet and wood paneling! so original, so gritty, so real.

    you can practically hear the conversation that took place before this shoot, wherein lea either was the only one willing to go full-on yuk, or insisted that she bare the most in order to remain the focal point of the spread. and there is something even sadder about dianna’s half-hearted stab at jailbait.

    i suppose GQ has gotten people talking about this cover, and maybe that’s the point. this is just so disappointing. and i’m not even a fan of “glee” (it’s totally uneven, except for jane lynch).

    One of the reasons why this show is so successful is because it is supposedly over traditional gender stereotyping and celebrates the “oddballs”: teh gays, the disabled, the fatties, the weirdos, etc. while leaving the hetero-sexy crap in the dust.

    Now they’ve gone and lost 90% of their gay audience and a lot of the str8 kids, too.

I don’t even give a damn about Glee, because there’s just too much other good TV out there and I missed that train — but even *I* know this sends the wrong message about the show, the actors, the magazine, the photog, everything. Just a big shoot full o’ douchery and bad decisions. I agree with the commenter who said straight up Playboy would’ve been a better angle! No pun intended.

I understand it’s a men’s magazine, catering to the demographic, blah blah blah, but frankly, if that’s what the modern men want, then when did they all become chauvinistic pigs?

    And I’m not a prude, I’ve seen other photoshoots of models/female stars that were sexy, but that…there’s nothing sexy about that. At all.

    I agree with everything you said fug girls.

    And yes, maybe it isn’t Lea Michele’s fault but it does make her seem even more annoying than she is, non? I mean Dianna certainly had the sense to keep her face under control and not look like she was getting bonked from both sides but Lea’s face? In every single shot? Embarrassing. Embarrassing and quite frankly, demeaning.

    But the thing that really GRINDS my gears the most is that Lea said in a couple interviews, regarding the GQ photos, that it was fun but totally outside her comfort zone. I don’t believe that for on effing second. Her Marie Clare semi-nude spread sealed the deal on that one. This is a girl who loves attention, who CRAVES attention. She’s a show girl and she’s loving every single moment of this spread.

    If you want to do that kind of raunchy shit, fine, but own up to it! Don’t pretend like you’re somehoe above it or afraid of it and then keep doing it over and over again.

    Sorry for my Lea Michele rant. I cannot stand her. And the GQ spread is embarrassing.

    I love the show “Glee” as I am a music theater lover and singer; however, I am beginning to feel that the show is WAY overexposed and that the actors involved are getting horribly boorish (look it up). Inasmuch as you can feel compassion for actors who are on a wildly successful show making tons of money, I can only imagine that for most of these same people (who are indeed older than the characters they play) will crash and burn after all the attention disappears.

    Whew! That said, this is a terrible cover and all involved should be embarrassed.

    Oh, they’ve reached the “Friends” stage where the publicity photos went from the entire cast in blue jeans, white oxford shirts, and big smiles to the actresses being styled as street walkers in fishnet stockings,overdone makeup, and ‘come hither’ looks (or with their a$$ completely exposed — I’m looking at you, Jen Aniston). What is it with actresses these days? These are talented women who could easily say, “Nope, not wearing that. Find something else or I’m gone.” Instead, they all end up like amateur Playboy centerfolds. Jeez, so much for progress.

    I’d like to join Steven as a gay man who has long enjoyed the site and is now compelled to comment for the first time.

    I stopped watching Glee at the end of the first season because it just didn’t know how to be what it seemed it wanted to be. It was a mess. It was too much of too many things. It kept moving further and further into some absurd world where everything was clichéd and vague and presented for the purpose of the moment without any real thought as to how it fit into the whole.

    In that sense, this photo shoot 100% completely represents Glee for me. It’s a sad, clichéd mess that neglects that fact that (whether or not Ryan Murphy wants to admit it) Glee is absolutely marketed as a family show. It’s about kids in high school. It airs at 8:00. It has merchandising tie-ins that no one over the age of 16 would buy without feeling massive amounts of shame (Glee original novels, anyone?). And having these actors pose as raunchy, depressing, vague shadows of some outmoded version of sex symbols is simply appalling.

    And that does not even address the point everyone else has made about Lea Michele looking like some desperate tart who has been turned down by every last casting director in the business and is left doing made-for-television movies about zombies. Someone should tell her that in the long run the stench of desperation can easily overpower the sweet smell of talent.

    Or the fact the Cory Monteith is serving as some sexist, anonymous droid who looks more like a lost puppy dog than a man with the gumption to grab anyone’s panties.

    Or the fact that Dianna Agron appears to have been made to stand there against her will, thus completing the kiddie porn vibe perfectly.

    Or the fact that Terry Richardson was allowed anywhere near this.

    Bad form, Glee. Bad form.

    I remember reading a review for “The Mirror Has Two Faces” where the reviewer addressed a line of the review directly to Barbra Streisand saying, “We get it – you’re attractive.” The reviewer basically pointed out that BS’s own sense of inadequacy about her looks caused her to make some poor career choices.

    All the big complaints being made over the misogynistic treatment of the women in “The Social Network” (whether or not it’s true) and it’s being treated like an anomaly- meanwhile, something like this hits the newsstand.

    Is it so wrong to want for my nieces to grow up believing in their brains, their strengths, their talents and their charisma over fretting about how sexy they or are not? Beyond that, the continual perversion of equating sex with school children. Ugh.

    Terry Richardson isn’t just gross to all the UNDERAGE models that pose for him. Allegations indicate that he’s gross to ALL of them. Jamie Peck? The model whose story you linked? Was 19 when she did those two shoots. Richardson preys on women of whatever age, as long as he thinks they can be manipulated into nonconsenual sex acts.

    They’ve styled Michele like a Max Hardcore starlet. Cheap cheesecake (ala Katy Perry) gives me a giggle, but this is… something else entirely.

    Richard Kern is a contemporary of Terry Richardson and I think Kern’s work captures an art and soul that Richardson’s intentionally exploitative lens misses. Kern is a dirty old man, too, but at least he draws you into the humanity of his subjects.

    SO much excellent commentary here!

    I’m no fan of Glee (although many around me are enthralled) but this, as has been said, is just more “Women aren’t people, but just sexy toys” imagery.

    Of course, GQ is looking to get the attention of straight men (do they even watch Glee?) since that is supposedly their target audience, so it isn’t out of reach that they put the girl sexy on the cover. But, really — I’d think that a lot of MEN would find this cover fairly stupid and even insulting. Yes, they are adults doing the ‘naughty schoolgirl’ costumes, but really, aren’t there fetish mags for that? Manga? Something other than GENTLEMAN’S QUARTERLY???

    Tacky. Unfortunately, as much as we might protest, until some of the more intelligent and enlightened men who are in that target audience get up and say “Ya know, that’s just a few miles over the TASTELESS line, guys.” it won’t make a lot of difference. More’s the pity. GQ can always fall back on the “it’s for GUYS” argument, like men can’t be better than that.

    As for the actors participating in this — sad double standard at work, poor message to send out, and generally a bad choice.

    Glee seems to bring this quality out in the media — as if society’s ‘watchers’ can’t see so much fresh-faced talent without wanting to soil it. Read the Rolling Stone cover article where the interviewer spends all his time thinking of — and asking! — inappropriate questions. Best part of the article was Jane Lynch threatening to swing on the guy, right before she walked out. She’s too smart for that, but how I wish she’d broken his nose.

    Glee JUST aired an episode in which Rachel tarted herself up to woo Finn, and the moral of the story was to be one’s nerd self. But apparently Lea Michele (whom I adore and think is gorgeous) is falling into the Jessica Biel trap: “Just because I play a good girl on TV doesn’t mean I’m not sexy in real life. Slutting it up will prove I can’t be typecast!” Although Jessica Biel is a big star now, so maybe it works. Sigh.

    Terry Richardson is NOT an artist. He’s a sleazy guy who got lucky in that the fashion world considers him an artist. There IS a difference between nudity as art and the self-gratifying, frankly creepy, “work” he does. Anyone can recreate his style of photography – set up a white background and overexpose every picture, and BOOM, you’re an artiste~. I don’t doubt for a second that all these “supposed” rumors of him being a creep are true – just look at his photos!! What I don’t understand is why people still commission him – is it approval for the fact that he takes advantage of young, impressionable models who don’t know any better? Is it really because his work is so groundbreaking that no one else can do what he does? Because all I see when I look at his work is a physical manifestation of his own fantasies. Frankly, porn is art eons above Richardson’s work because at least there is no pretense; porn is what it is. That he is able to pass off his cheap, degrading photos as “art” has actually got me wondering about the people who accept it as so – are they really so blind? He KNOWS what he’s doing and has even found a way to capitalize on it. Is the fashion world really dumb enough to believe him?

    In a word, it looks desperate.

    If I didn’t know better, I would call this the product of a guy who is trying to assure the world of his (or his gender’s?) continuing relevance — all evidence to the contrary.

    Not a great moment for GQ.

    Or for men, now that I think about it …

    Lea, I like your voice. I don’t want to know about your vagina. Turn down the trying a couple of notches, okay? At least Dianna Agronn was a little closer to dressed.

    On the upside, Corey Monteith had the best day of his life so far at this photoshoot.

    I totally agree, this photo shoot was classless and never should have gone to print. Really, they had since July when it was shot to think about it and realize what a bad idea it was.

    Still, I think the fact that Lea Michele is getting most of the negative press is also wrong. She’s the undeniable lead of the show with the most “hollywood” body so of course they put her in the skimpiest clothes and focused in on her more. Add to that, she naturally always throws herself 110% into any “role.” Should she have thought about it and realized how classless it was? Yes. But really, so should have Dianna and Cory.

    And Dianna may have been more restrained, but she’s also the one quoted talking about what a cool and fun guy Terry is which turned me off more than Lea’s full frontal shot could ever hope to.

    We don’t know what happened at the shoot, but we have the outcome. This has been done over and over again. They aren’t the only cast to ever do so and they won’t be the last. Because we’ll all bitch about it for a few days and then move on, nothing accomplished. So instead of wasting valuable time whinging about something that can’t be changed, you should be teaching your kids how to change an inherently sexist society, and applying your teachings personally.

    I’m in the same boat as Steven, in that I love this website but have never commented. I’m sitting here going “hells to the yes!” to everything that both Jessica and all the commenters have said. Although I can’t help but laugh at Lea’s face in all of them– “LOOK AT ME I’M SO SEXY LOOK AT MY SEXYTIMES THIS IS MY SEXY FACE.” although, I must admit that for some reason I am amused by Dianna’s face on the cover– it’s kind of cute in that she seems kind of… in on the joke? over it? there’s something about it where’s she looks like she’s just thinking “…*sigh*.” like the whole situation both irritates and amuses her.

    Alice, I don’t think it’s necessarily mutually exclusive to be whinging about this on the internet AND then, when we get home from work, to be teaching our kids why it’s wrong that the dude in this spread is fully clothed and the girls are not — that he’s playing the drums and they’re just eating candy.

    I actually think people talking about this with such annoyance and outrage is a sign that our sexist society IS changing. Because X number of years ago, I don’t think people would be making that big of a fuss about it. And now they are. And that’s good.

    Rachel: Can I ask you guys something..private?

    God, I miss last season’s kickass writing. Anyway, because I watch way too much E!News I can tell you kids that Michele says it’s important to her that fans get to know how much more “sensual” she is compared with her character. Erm..tween fans too, Lea? I guess she grew up doing her homework in Broadway dressing rooms, saw a lot of stuff hanging out & about and has artsy theater ideas about nudity being just one of many tools (hee) an actor shouldn’t fear using.

    If you really want to over analyze her (like her Jewfro’d stalker on Glee) she does seem to think she’s slumming in H’Wood (flies home every other weekend) and might be uber working it in publicity photos as an artsy inside joke to show her friends in New York..? Or not.

    Terry Richardson is obviously some kind of royalty to magazine editors because no matter what he does, they don’t disassociate themselves from him. It’s actually bizarre how he is allowed to continue with this shit, even after he’s been outed as a molester of young models.

    I have written to both the CEO of Conde Nast and the CEO of H&M to complain about Terry Richardson. Both of them said that they were disturbed to hear the allegations. But GQ is a Conde Nast publication.

    What about a massive letter-writing campaign? Or a boycott? It would be nice to have an effect, wouldn’t it??

    Oh My Stars! This is beyond uncomfortable. I don’t sense a full level of commitment from Dianna in this shoot. Maybe she’s upset that she wasn’t asked to “totally skank out” like Lea! Maybe this is an interpretation of role reversal for the girls. Lea is Blantant Hottie like Quinn and Dianna is Subtle Hottle like Rachel. Cory is Boring Tool like Finn…no adjustments needed.

The whole thing seems so desperate, which doesn’t make any sense because the show and the actors are doing so well. To me, even worse than being in her underwear, is the O-face slutty body language Lea is doing. I don’t get it, this isn’t sexy, it’s just really gross.

    I get it that Cory is clothed, you might have too. He doesn’t have the body to go shirtless (yet), but that doesn’t mean the girls should go so scantily clad in comparison?!

    “I hear from the feminist media machine that girls should be able to express their sexuality. You know, all that “You go grrrl” baloney. So, this is what you end up with.
    Unfortunately, feminists are not known for having good taste.”

    Yes, these photos are disgusting. But, I do want to defend Lea a tiny bit. How many of us did questionable, stupid, ill advised things during our late teens and twenties because we wanted to be cool or fit in or be different or whatever? Thankfully, my young adult poor decisions were not published in national magazines.

    You know, I agree that this photoshoot is totally classless, and sexist, and every negative thing you can think of. Still, you can criticize it without slut-shaming Lea Michele.

    I just don’t get how any of them went along with this, especially after their prissy interview with Rolling Stone where none of the girls would own up to anything remotely naughty in their past, the overall thing was the cast wanted to be good role models – and now THIS? What the hay – someone involved with the show must have had to sign off on them working with a known sex offender, abuser of young models, etc. Sickening. They don’t need this kind of publicity surely? Especially Lea Michele, she just seems depserate to be a sex symbol with her newly scrawny frame. Way to conform, despite all her nose job speeches. Yeurch. Sorry, just soooo tacky.

    It’s just so… over the top. It’s one thing to be sexy and a bit risque, it’s another to go this far in the opposite direction of what’s classy. They’re all adults, yes. It’s not borderline pedophilia. But! Just because you’re over 18, doesn’t mean you need to be photographed in nothing more than panties.

    Jeez. Lea Michele was already getting my on nerves this season. She’s been so cringe-worthy. Now I’m not even sure I can watch her at all. She looks so desperate lately. What’s that about? She loses weight (which I don’t understand in the first place. She looked better before) and then just becomes annoying? Ugh.

    Weirdly though, I am not bothered by Diana Agron’s shots. She looks like she put her foot down & said, “No. I WILL wear bottoms, thank you.” ..and good for her.

    3- Even if THEY aren’t teenagers, they’re still being PORTRAYED as teenagers – cheating for ephebophilia at best!

    Oh. my. lord. I see this and I can’t help but be reminded of the episiode of 30Rock where Liz gets frustrated that only Jenna is getting press for her “That’s a dealbreaker!” joke and they go to do a photoshoot together and Jenna warns Liz not to take the props but when the photographer shines more attention on her for acting goofy and weird, she ignores the advice. I feel like Dianna Argon was all, “…so where are the pants in this wardrobe?” And Lea Michele was all, “I’LL DO IT!” And I don’t mean that as a diss to Lea Michele. I think people are waaaay worked up about her supposed “diva” status and it’s completely unfair to blame her for the horrific raunchiness of this shoot. They are supposed to do things like this for the larger PR machine of Glee and I highly doubt all 3 of these new startlets, who let’s admit, unless you were a big Broadway-phile before, were mostly in relative obscurity. Of course they are going to wind up in situations like this if no one who has more ground to do so says something. Where was someone to say, “These kids are role models. This is wrong.” For that matter, if you’re going to blame Michele, why not blame Monteith for not saying, “Hey, why are they naked and I’m not?”

    Seriously – what is it with lads mags and MTV? Why is it that men seem to be allowed to walk around all fully clothed, whereas women (it seems) by LAW have to be as near to naked as possible, or they DIE. Or something.

    I mean, FFS, in one music video, the two male singers/whatever are going to a pool party – so all the girls are naturally writhing around in bikinis and they get to wear JEANS and shirts, the whole time?

    Seriously, get over it. In reality what’s she really showing off? More or less than she would on any given weekend at the beach? What’s next? Are you people going to tell her that she isn’t allowed to don a bikini anymore? Or that she isn’t allowed to suck on a candy because to you it’s an implied phallic symbol?

    They are adult women and they are going to do what they want. It is, after all, a “lads” mag that’s in the business to make money and sex sells. If they offer these girls some cash to look sexy, they take it and in return the magazine sells more copies, good for them. Everyone is happy except of course, the ladies of those subscribing lads that are looking for something to gripe about when in reality it’s YOU who’s making it worse than it is. In the end you’re still going to watch the show and six months from now this will all be a memory that’s overshadowed by the next “scandal” you people decide to get your noses into.

    I do agree with you on this. I’m actually a little (a lot) disappointed that Ms. Michelle would agree to something like this. I hate to pass judgment when I don’t really know her but for someone soooo talented as Lea Michelle to do a photo shoot like this when there is ABSOLUTLEY NO NEED to put yourself out there any further when your recognized practically everywhere…it’s a little…I don’t know (?) sad? I mean I get it. She’s twenty something-odd years old and she can do whatever the hell she wants to with her life, I mean more power to ya, but I love Lea’s character. Rachel’s ambitious, however overbearing she may be at sometimes, but at least she knows what she wants. I admired that. I respected that. I still do in fact and I sometimes thought of Lea as being an alternative product of what Rachel could aspire to if that makes sense. But I’m not so sure if I like that idea now. I understand the need for exposure (from the media mind you) but she didn’t need it. She’s doing wonderfully all on her own and even though they have a right to do these kinds of photo shoots, they’re still embodying their characters. Ex. CM red/white letterman jacket, Dianna showing off her pom poms. Now I’m rambling but I just feel kind of let down as a fan. However beautiful these girls are they shouldn’t have to/ feel like they need to showcase that to stay ‘popular’.

    OK, the voice of unreason. You want to walk on the edge of youth / inappropriate. Fine. That’s your job. If you want to be “cutting edge”, you’ll get the attention – paycheck. The public likes to walk the edge. Just enough to accept, but they want to draw the (horrors!) line. You want it, you got it. They are over 18, this is legal. Wring your hands, pick your line, you asked for it you got it. Check the ratings.

    RCompelled to reply for the first time. Leaving aside the fact that the photographer is clearly not popular, for good reason, these photos are bad on so many levels.

    They are cheap, tacky and utterly without class. I am annoyed by the stereotyping, the lack of creativity, the blatant sexism, basically everything. My personal feelings on Lea aside, I am sad for her here. She is a beautiful girl and super talented and the world does not need to see her crotch to validate any of that. I feel awkward just looking at these pictures of her because she looks so needy and desperate and has no reason to be either.

    Dianna had the sense at least to not even try and hide her contempt for the situation. She looks better but the photos still make me uncomfortable. She’s a classy girl with so much natural style and elegance – she needs photoshoots like this like she needs a hole in the head.

    I’d respect Cory a little more if he just didn’t look quite so smug. Or wearing less (not that I find him particularly attractive, I just reckon the scales should be a bit more even)

    But overall – vaguely nauseating and totally unnecessary. The Glee PR machine surely can’t be this desperate so early on on Season 2 can it?

You’d think it would have died by now considering it’s been going strong for about a decade…?? And in any other industry Richardson would be called out for what he is – a dirty old perv with serious mysogynist tendencies who gets his rocks off bullying young women.

    1) I agree that adults who take care of youth definitely must make it a point to talk & clarify values/beliefs. These particular adult actors (the male actor is near 30 years old playing a teen) currently make a living/$$$$ portraying teens battling peer pressure, self-esteem, self-acceptance & discrimination in high school. How naive, disregarding & dismissive are they given their vast fan base are youth that they can profit off the portrayal of young people and be shocked of their contradictory over-the-top sexualized depictions vs. the underdogs GLEE club members! Whether we like it or not, media plays a role in perception, in the case of this magazine cover “GLEE gone WILD” perpetuates that women are objects, it’s ok for males to inappropriately put hands on their bottoms – sexism frankly. Though I like GLEE for the musicality and some of the themes, I’ve lost a lot of respect for these adult actors. What a contradiction from Monteith, who portrays himself as affable & socially conscious: supporting a benefit for a Rape Crisis Treatment Center in LA, encouraging to wear purple on this past Wed, Oct 19, 2010 to raise awareness about LGBT bullying/hate crimes THEN participate by objectifying women on the cover a magazine. He stated he shared the value of “virtue” w/ his GLEE character, Finn. We don’t think so -more like hypocrite & sellout.

    Oh come on you guys, these people are all grown up and those are their bodies. I think the pictures are racy and nice. They are just this side of ‘scandalous’-not! If we can have unclothed models on the catwalk showing their nipples, then what is wrong about a teenage guy having his pic on GQ with his hands on the backsides of those two beautiful gals on either side of him. A lot of you are trying to appear morally upright, when you are either ambivalent about this or you secretly agree that the sky is not going to fall down just because someone poses in their pants. Don’t be such prudes.
    Further-and this goes to those people who say this one magazine will negatively influence teens-are you saying you can’t influence your children to live the morally clean lives you want them to have? What happened to mother-daughter/father/son talks?

    Thank you for acknowledging how degrading this is to women. It is disgusting! And all the people who think this is okay are pigs. It has nothing to do with the characters these women play. It is about how this pushes the idea that women have to act dumb and submissive to be desirable. SO SICK OF THIS AGENDA.

    While I admit, when I first heard about this, my thoughts were ‘yeah uh huh.. like Miley Cyrus was ‘scandalous’? Pfft, whatever.’ Then i saw the pictures and yeah.. I may have stopped for a second for a double take. Scandalous or not though, they are artfully done. After my initial shock, I found myself rather admiring the pictures. One of them is even my Aria’s background. It makes me giggle every time I turn on my phone.
    Anyways, I don’t see what all the fuss is about? These celebrities aren’t actual teenagers. They are real people who are also adults. While they do want to be good role models (I guess that’s what celebrities wish to be?), their career is their first concern, so if their managers think this is a good idea (and they ARE paid to know) then hey, let them do whatever they have to do in life.
    For those parents who are livid about it corrupting their children, all I have to say is: Watch your own child. It is NOT a celebrity’s responsibility as to how YOUR child turns out. There are LOTS of distractions in life like these, and it is YOUR responsibility for telling your kids what to do and not do. Really.

    This cover is atrocious. What disturbs me even more than Lea Michele displaying her backside goodies is Cory Monteith’s hands over the girls’ asses, as if they’re his property. At least on the True Blood Rolling Stone cover, ALL of them were unclothed and equally sexualized.

    I guess I’m in a minority here, but I greatly enjoyed these pics. If anyone is wishing for some shots of the guy in his underpants, I say go for it- just not my thing.
    In all fairness, I’ve never once seen the show- or even a trailer for the show… all I’m seeing here is 2 ridiculously hot girls looking sexy. To which I’m not opposed.

    Perfect way to encourage pedophiles to masturbate, kidnap and lure underage girls. Perfect way to objectify highschool chicks. Why is Cory completely clothed and grabbing the a$$es of two girls, in a highschool locker room?

    Amen, people.

    Yes, why don’t women respect themselves (anymore–or is it YET, or EVER?!). No one is FORCING us to be represented in this way. So just stop. Refuse to go along. Or at least let’s have equal opportunity skeeviness with the guys, because we all know THAT is RARELY the case, let’s not kid ourselves. It is keeping us in the role of second-class citizens. Awful. Vomit. And the lollypop?! Give me a fucking break. So old and played out. It was old the first time it was ever done.

    Here in Canada, a serial killer was just convicted. His thing was breaking into women’s homes, stealing their lingerie and masturbating with it, and then eventually he escalated it to forcing them to pose for nasty photographs, and then raping and killing them. You might think I am nuts to put these two things in the same category, but what they have in common is THIS: misogyny. voyeurism. objectification. an obsession with panties.

    DOWN with misogynistic objectifying portrayals of women. We are NOT just playthings for sexual gratification.

    I recently worked for a major national magazine, and had to transcribe an interview with Lea Michelle. Having never seen Glee, this didn’t thrill me to begin with, and about 5 minutes in I was banging my head against my desk in agony. She is, without a doubt, the most vapid, obnoxious, self-obsessed moron I’ve ever heard speak. Seriously. All she talked about for 45 minutes was her trainer, her macrobiotic vegan diet and how talented she is. I don’t care how talented she is, she’ll fizzle and be gone in the next 3 years with her bitchtude and terrible decisions (case in point)

    Possibly the most offensive part is that there is nothing original or creative or truly daring about it. It’s just more soft porn. Not that there’s anything wrong with soft porn in and of itself, but this debases talented actresses/singers/dancers and makes them nothing more than soft core porn stars in this shoot. And the juxtaposition of Cory fully clothed is just offensive.

    We are talking here about an actress who is working in an industry where youth and sexual availability are everything for women. She may be in a show that’s usp is that talent matters more than looks but we all know that just isn’t true in the TV/Film/Modelling/celeb industries.
    To get on women have to botox, undergo surgery, flash their bodies, and pander to the men who pay money to drool over them.

    The reason why Dianne-i think her name is-the blonde girl-looks uncomfortable in most shots, is because she is. She Twitted a sort of apology the other day re: the shoot, and said that she did not feel comfortable about the shoot, but she did it anyway. This why I think she is (more or less clothed) and no underwear, spreadeagled shots for her!

    I just hate that Cory has on so many clothes in each shot. not Just a shirt and pants, but, shirt, tie, jacket, the shots are ridiculous!!!

    to all the commenters who ARE NOT “PRUDES”, i think the main point that all the “PRUDES” here are trying to make is that:

    these actors are from a show that supposedly celebrates values such as individuality, freedom of expression, respect, equality and personal integrity.

    in a sex-soaked society, for many of us, promoting these values enables women to be the sexual equals of men.

    a photo shoot that shows the women scantily clad and positioned in sexually suggestive poses, while the man is fully clothed, is obviously sending the statement that the women are sex objects and should be used as such.

    it doesn’t necessarily say that they are sex objects ONLY, but it certainly doesn’t suggest what else they might be, which could be intelligent, compassionate, talented people with something to say.

    for many people, this kind of photoshoot just does away with any credibility the actors might have had as positive role models for teenagers i.e. don’t feel pressured to have sex, beauty is only skin-deep, you don’t have to be like everyone else to be loved and accepted etc.

    all of which just makes me glad i’ve never relied on TV shows to provide me with suitable role models.

    i just went and looked through the photoshoot.

    and i’d just like to say, that in addition to everything i said in my comment above, the photoshoot was also-

    tacky
    trashy
    boring
    uninspired
    the stylists should be shot (not an adjective, but w/e)
    low budget

    i’ve done better photoshoots in my living room, playing dress ups with my sisters.

    Whether or not GQ runs to a fourteen-year-old girl audience, this photoshoot is controversial enough that, uh, yes, highschool girls are going to see it and be influences. Irresponsible.

    Yeah…hate to sound sexist here, but I care less about what I sound like than what I actually am, so here goes: You guys talking about the women on the thread being prudes for bitching about this – YOU HAVE NO FECKING CLUE WHAT THE HELL YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT A DAMN WOMAN. (Excuse my language, ladies.) I don’t gain anything by saying this. Even where it concerns women’s rights, I agree with males more often than I do with females. But where it concerns the definition of “objectification” – men, stay the feck out. You haven’t been socialized into a cathouse. We have. You [unless you are homosexual] haven’t fought sexual harassment in middle school. (On that, I’d like to give a hats-off to the gay men who commented on this thread. They clearly deserve to mate more than the heterosexual guys who commented – with the exception of that Antonio guy.) We have on a daily fecking basis. You haven’t been subjected to hundreds of images per day telling you that you aren’t thin/whatever enough. We have. You haven’t been subliminally told to base your value on your usefulness to the opposite sex your whole life. We have. You haven’t been excluded from social, academic, etc. groups because of your unwillingness to utilize sex appeal. We have. There is no way in Hell you know what we go through. If we say it’s objectification, you don’t get to disagree with any credence. Other women get to, but you don’t. They’ve experienced similar socialization; they’re in a position to make an informed statement about the subject. You’re not. If this seems sexist to you, it’s probably just because you’re a chauvinist pig.

    I know this post is a week old, but I’m STILL thinking about it, and so I must tell you how really well-written it was. I first saw this on Jezebel and was amazed at how many of the comments were not horrified, even though Terry Richardson is quite loathed over there … instead, it seemed like commenters who pointed out how sexist and desperate the whole thing was drew cries of, “Slut shaming! These are adult women in control of their own bodies …” etc.

    You, on the other hand, absolutely nailed what was wrong with this shoot. And the commenters here have restored my faith in, I don’t know, the Internet!

    I can’t stand Lea Michelle. Her character grates on me, to the point that I have started fast-forwarding through her singing parts on Glee. I used to just deal with her. But something…changed…and I don’t know what…but she is trying WAY too hard to be sexy. All the time. Or be MORE. All the time. Which is why I want to punch her in the face. All the time.

    She looks like an asshat. And I don’t think the blame goes solely on the pervy photog. I get the feeling that she WANTS to be seen as super sexy. Which, of course, makes her even less likable.

    I’d been in the beginning treated using Intense pulsed light which often is not the best method for hair removal. I started with complete leg laser hair removal. I visited an MD who used a strong early model fractionated laser machine but was left having uneven spots. Then I thought I would purchase a no no hair removal. I am thrilled and will be starting different areas of my body soon. Their pricing even fit my expense plan which is a substantial benefit.

I personally think that there is nothing wrong with this, you don’t see anything in the magazine that you wouldn’t see on the beach in the summer I don’t have any problem with it at all. You have to look at the fact that its not like 10 year old’s are buying this magazine either, this magazine is geared toward men. What about the cover of Rolling Stone with Leighton Meister and Blake Lively licking an ice cream cone together suggestively, are you gunna stop letting your kids watch gossip girl after that, or any movie with Keira Knightley or Scarlett Johanson after their NUDE COVER SHOOT for vanity fair?

It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    This is a different sort of opinion that many people don’t usually talk about. Generally when I come across these sort of things I like to post them on Digg. I don’t think this would be the best to submit though. I’ll take a look around your site though and submit something else.

    I smoked cigarettes for a long time. I understand it damages my health and so I wish to stop smoking however it’s been harder than you can imagine. None of the stop smoking tips helped. Then I found the electronic cigarette. It has basically saved my life. No longer breathing cancerous substances feels tremendous!

    I introduced myself to cigarette smoking when I was really young. That ended up the most detrimental wrong move I’ve made. Today I’m older and I have lung disease. When attempting to quit smoking, I discovered the e cigarette and will try it out. With some luck, it’s going to help me with this crappy addiction.

    I wasted money on cigarettes for a number of years and stopping appeared to be harder than you can imagine. I tried all of the quit smoking techniques still nothing at all helped me. Then I discovered the e cigarette review. The e cig utilizes a nicotine juice that is created from simply nicotine. Basically no toxic chemicals at all. They’ve already luckily changed my life.

    I had been doing laser hair removal applications for over a year at this point on my beard. Until then I had a heavy dark beard. I am proud of the final results. The actual hairs are really thin and I have not gone back for re-application in approximately a few months. Let me mention that it did feel painful a bit on my top lip and there were times that I got a bit of redness on my face. I suggest Ipl to people having thick hairs or have got major spots of hair they need to eliminate. For the men that want to do their tough facial beard be prepard to get spots over the coming several weeks and many people saying dude whats up with your beard.

    I changed technicians given that after a few years of laser light, I figured the results were not worth their expense. Then I got the silkn. They will promise that after 24 months in the event that hair grows back again, the treatments are free of charge. They have got both fractionated laser and also Intense pulsed light, but I want to stay with laser now being Intense pulsed light didn’t appear to reduce the amount of hair returning.

    The solution is to gradually become free of societal rewards and learn how to substitute for them rewards that are under one’s own powers. This is not to say that we should abandon every goal endorsed by society; rather, it means that, in addition to or instead of the goals others use to bribe us with, we develop a set of our own.
