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.

Lea Michele is really, really trying to make her sexy popstar career happen, and it’s really, really NOT happening. Her latest ploy for attention comes in the form of a Terry Richardson shoot in which she dons a cut-out bodysuit and pulls it down all sultry-like in an effort to convince you that she’s seriously hot.
Listen, Lea is a beautiful girl and we all like to feel pretty and all of that, but girl… no. Just stop immediately. The above shoot doesn’t say “sexy, classy Hollywood starlet”, it says “broke college girl who answered an ad on Craigslist for an easy $100″, right?
Here’s a bit of her accompanying interview, which really seals the deal on why I can’t stand this chick:
“My friends call me Grandma, but, like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay?” Michele says in the accompanying interview with Mary H.K. Choi. “So I’m fine with it. I just do my thing. I do what’s best for me. That’s it.”

Following up her debut single, ‘Cannonball’, Lea Michele has brought out the second cut from her first album, Louder, and this one is called… ‘Battlefield’. What’s up with the war themes, girl? This one is a tinkly piano ballad that does absolutely nothing at all for her or for my ears, but whatever, YMMV. Have a listen:
Lea is pretty excited about it and promo’d it on Twitter on Friday, but I’m just not so sure. I think she’s an amazing singer and Broadway actress, but the whole pop star thing is just not for her. And that’s okay! But let’s just leave this whole solo career alone, shall we?

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.
