Lea Michele’s still exploiting Cory Monteith’s death

Yesterday would have been Cory Monteith‘s 32nd birthday – a sad occasion for those who loved the Glee actor and are still struggling with his death. One person who’s using her grief as a giant career catalyst is Lea Michele, who seems to be banking on public sympathy for her tragic loss of love to sell more of her shitty albums.

Her latest move was to post a touching tribute to Cory (with the above photo) on her Twitter page yesterday. That should get a few more copies of Louder off the shelves, eh?


I hate to be so callous, and we all express grief difficulty, but this all seems so contrived to me and the more she talks about it, the more ridiculous/insincere she sounds. Not feeling it, Lea. Let Cory rest in peace.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith Used to Talk About Growing Old and Staying Skinny Together

Y’all know I temporarily suspended my extreme disdain towards my arch enemy, Lea Michele, for a while after Cory Monteith‘s tragic death. I can’t help it – I’m a bit of a romantic and don’t know what I would have done with myself in her position, and I felt bad. However, now that she’s using it to launch her solo pop career (which will NEVER HAPPEN), she’s fair game again… especially when she’s being obnoxious.

She’s on the cover of the new issue of Glamour, and in the accompanying interview, she waxes poetic about how she and Cory used to talk about their futures together – more particularly, how they would get old and everyone around them would get fat but they would stay skinny. You know, that old romantic talk.

“We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin. We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were done. We were it. When you’re at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything. But today I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I’m thankful for that.”

Well, isn’t that special?

I mean, look – it sucks (and that’s putting it VERY mildly) to lose someone you love, especially someone you planned to spend the rest of your life with, even if that wasn’t going to end up happening. I’m not saying she shouldn’t talk about him – of course she should. But of all the memories you could share, you choose to share a discussion about how everyone around you would get fat but the two of you – special snowflakes that you are – would be skinny? Sorry, my eyes are rolling so far back into my head that I can’t see the keyboard.

Cory Monteith Made Leah Michele Feel Really Special

Ugh, again, I hate when I have to sympathize with Lea “cannonballs are the first thing that come to mind when thinking of airborne objects” Michele, but I do. Having lost her (possible fiancé and) boyfriend Cory Monteith earlier this year, she’s really had to come to terms with moving on and getting herself together. While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, she recalled how Cory first revealed their relationship on Ellen’s show and how much knowing that meant to her.

“It’s one of my favorite memories. I remember when he came home that night he kind of puffed out his chest and he was like, ‘I talked about you on Ellen today’.

“I was so happy. He’s such a private person and I literally lived every day of my life feeling like the luckiest girl in the whole world. I just thought he was the greatest man and so at that moment, that memory, it means so much to me.”

Aw, that is really sweet. AND REALLY SAD. Seriously, I would not be able to get my shit together if that happened to me – at least not so quickly – so you have to commend Lea for putting on a brave face and managing to continue with her work and career. Maybe that’s a distraction for her, of course – keeping busy means less time to think about the fact that the person you love isn’t there anymore, I suppose. Either way, this shit is still really sad.
