Damn, Lea Michele gets around, it seems. While she’s best known for her totally real and not at all played up for the press relationship with Glee co-star Cory Monteith, it seems she was also involved with another castmate prior: Mr. Schue himself, Matthew Morrison. She talked about the relationship in her new biography, Brunette Ambition (gag me):
“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”
Ugh, how is it that a single paragraph can sound so obnoxious? “A Broadway beat”? Who talks like that? I guess Broadway stars? She’s the worst.
Anyhow, not surprised these two dated, though I’m surprised they could both fit in one room given the size of their gigantic heads. The amount of ego between the two of them is unparalleled.

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?
The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so. Happy Birthday. pic.twitter.com/XzGVu0g5nY

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.

Skincare is important, and sunscreen is a definite daily must. I’m super pale, so when I was younger, I used to BURN – like, golf ball sized blisters on my shoulders from sun poisoning, which is NOT a good thing. And I even wore sunscreen! That hasn’t happened in many many years, but I now use sunscreen as part of my daily skincare/makeup routine and am all about the pale ass white colour I’m clearly meant to be.
That almost seemed like an advertisement, but I feel like I’m bonding with my arch enemy Lea Michele over this, because she’s done a new PSA for the Melanoma Research Alliance, encouraging people of all skin types and ages to wear sunscreen daily to avoid getting what’s apparently the most deadly form of skin cancer.
This is actually pretty important, so I’m on board with it, for sure. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever said that in regards to something Lea has done, but can’t fault a good thing!

Lea Michele is a hot ass mess, and not in a good way. She’s continuing to exploit the death of boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith to launch her own pop career. Hell, she’s even ATTEMPTING a pop career full stop. That should tell you the case of the Special Snowflakes this girl has right there.
As part of her Tour of Terror, she’s over in the UK promoting her solo album and appeared on Daybreak, where she revealed that she plans to have “a billion” kids (via DS):
Of having kids, Michele commented: “Of course – I’m going to have like a billion of them! But mainly because I always hated being an only child, I always wished I had more siblings!”
Asked whether late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith liked her new album Louder, Michele said: “Of course! This album was completed in June, so for such a long time I would just play it for my close friends and family, I can’t believe that now the whole world is getting to hear it – it’s pretty unbelievable.”
Also, the “whole world” isn’t going to hear that album, girl. Some of us are intentionally avoiding it, just FYI…

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.
