All the Glee
news that's fit to print, including the big story of the day: The Glee
pictures in GQ
, which some people are arguing were NOT fit to print:Those racy pics of Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith in GQ are causing quite a stir (... in men's pants):
Here's the thing. I could
go a long diatribe about how these "scandalous" photos of Lea and Dianna
--who, certain parents' organizations want us to remember
, play high schoolers and are thus high school kids' role models (or something)--are overtly fetishizing and sexualizing their high school personas with lollipops and knee socks, and how that is bad for children, and bad for Glee
, and bad for AMERICA, but really, all I can say is: It's GQ
. (Gentleman's Quarterly
. This is what they do.) It's Terry Richardson. (This is what he does.
) It's America. (This is what we do
, even if we pretend it's not.) It's two 24-year-old actresses and a 28-year-old actor who know the best way to make waves (and branch out of the high school stereotype before it strangles their careers) is to embrace their hit show's angle in an adult(-entertainment) way. And they seem to be enjoying themselves, even poking fun at it all--so why are we taking it so seriously? Besides, since when was Glee
(lesbian-makeout-showing, pot-brownie-eating, hallucinogenic-gas-abusing Glee
) a conservative, buttoned up show for children?
I guess what I'm trying to say is: "Duh. Yawn. What did you expect?" If you want to be offended, be offended, I guess. But maybe you should save your offended energy for the Rocky Horror
tribute. More on that below.
Mark Salling released his "Illusions" music video, and by "illusions," he means "those Magic Eye books we all loved as children":
This is apparently music video "Version 2," in which undulating sheets of images are meant to trip us out even more than those dreams the Gleeks had when they were under Dr. Carl's laughing gas. What do you think of Mark's solo debut? Are you digging it or would you rather hear Puck's latest ode to Jewish musicians?
