Glee Stars’ GQ Photo Shoot Gets Backlash

Posted by Stephanie on Oct-22-2010 under Cast & Crew, Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron, Lea Michele

GQA recent photo shoot with GQ magazine has stirred up controversy for the racy attire and poses Glee cast members Dianna Agron, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith adorn for the shoot. Major media including Arts Beat for The New York Times, The Huffington Post and Broadway.com have all written on the photos and the controversy that has followed.

The Parents Television Council released a statement slamming ‘Glee‘ producers from Tim Winter, the council’s president stating, “It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ‘Glee‘ in this way. It borders on pedophilia. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions on the show’s direction. And it isn’t good for families.”

In the wake of a media news storm, Dianna posted a response on her blog about the recent experience:

Tree HouseIn the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans…we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?

For GQ, they asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ version. At the time, it wasn’t my favorite idea, but I did not walk away. I must say, I am trying to live my life with a sharpie marker approach. You can’t erase the strokes you’ve made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate. I’m moving forward from this one, and after today, putting it to rest. I am only myself, I can only be me. These aren’t photos I am going to frame and put on my desk, but hey, nor are any of the photos I take for magazines. Those are all characters we’ve played for this crazy job, one that I love and am so fortunate to have, each and every day. If you asked me for my dream photo shoot, I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon. Until then…..

Can somebody please put Dianna in charge of a photo shoot? It would be epic.

Cory Monteith & Matthew Morrison Comment on LGBTQ Teen Suicides

Posted by Rob on Oct-04-2010 under Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Videos

The Glee cast recently hosted a benefit for the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, and in light of the recent suicides from LGBTQ youth, Cory Monteith and Matthew Morrison were asked to voice their concerns. See what they had to say in this video from Entertainment Tonight.

“I’m sure that’s something that [Ryan Murphy] wants to talk about,” Matthew Morrison told us on Sunday, answering how “Glee” would respond to the problem of gay bullying in schools across the U.S. Murphy is the show’s executive producer.

The RTC has dedicated itself to advancing the care of rape victims as well as preventing the occurrence of sexual assault, and Cory Monteith told us that he was glad to be a part of the fundraiser: “It’s really important for a show like ‘Glee,’ with all the exposure that it’s getting, to start to bring important causes like this out in the open,” Monteith told us.

“It’s shedding a light on a subject that a lot of people keep in the closet,” said Morrison.

While it appears from the video that Chris Colfer was absent at the event, when asked via Twitter if he would be making an It Gets Better Project video, he responded saying that one was in the works. Later, he tweeted: “Just shot an #ItGetsBetter PSA with @TrevorProject! It’s so important we make it known there is love and understanding out there!” When the video goes online, we’ll be sure to post it.

Cory Montieth wants a UK tour?

Posted by Tinkers on Jul-06-2010 under Cory Monteith

Cory’s currently shooting a movie with Selena Gomez in Monaco (as you’ve probably seen via twitpics and the like) and he was recently spotted backstage at the Wireless Festival, a star-studded annual gathering including stars like Jay-Z and P!nk.

When approached about whether or not the show would tour in London, Cory responded, “I hope so. I don’t plan these things…I don’t know (but) I would very much like it to happen.” Good news for UK Gleeks!

And when asked the reasoning behind his whereabouts: “I wanted to see LCD Soundsystem and here I am. I’ve had a couple of days off so I was just like, ‘I’m gonna go to London!’” He went on to praise P!nk for her theatrical antics.

Rob’s Report: Breakfast with Glee at Z100 – An Elvis Duran Show & iheartradio Event

NYC On Friday, May 28, 2010, my day started by stepping off of a Greyhound bus and into New York City for the first time in my life. After only an hour or so to go check out the hotel we would be checking into later that day, it was time to head off to the P.C. Richard & Son Theater in Tribeca. As a sort of last minute surprise, I was able to bring my friend Emily Zhang with me, so that’s who you’ll see me with in the pictures. She was going to stay back and do something else, but I was able to get her an entry thanks to the awesome people at iheartradio. We took the subway from 50th to Canal St., and stood in the line that was forming outside of the building. I texted my contact at iheartradio, saying that I was there, and she came out to get me! We got to bypass most of the line and we came inside to get a sneak peek of the theater before everyone else was allowed in. It was set up to look like a classroom, but they chalkboards had hilarious caricature drawings of all the cast members. I remember that when Amber saw the one of her, she commented on how big her head was. Hehe…

Right before it started, we got to save our seats in the theater. We sat in the second row (I believe that the 1st row was reserved for employees) and we got wristbands so that we could leave and come back in easily. We dropped our stuff off in our seets, and then got some breakfast. Everything was provided by Dunkin’ Donuts, so the donuts and coffee was great. Then we went back to our seats and ate while the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show people came in. This was awesome for me because I listen to them almost every morning on a local station, Q94, but I had no idea what they actually looked like! Greg T., who Elvis Duran usually refers to as frat boy or round head, went around asking for peoples’ questions to ask the cast during the interview. Finally, the Glee cast came in.

Glee Cast at Elvis Duran

The cast members who were present were Cory Monteith (“Finn Hudson”), Kevin McHale (“Artie Abrams”), Jenna Ushkowitz (“Tina Cohen-Chang”), Naya Rivera (“Santana Lopez”), Amber Riley (“Mercedes Jones”) and Mark Salling (“Noah ‘Puck’ Puckerman”). After some introduction, they began answering questions. Some of the questions were from the audience (approximately 100 people), in which case Greg T. would go to the person who had a question and let them ask it into the mic. Other times, they would take callers with questions, which Elvis was able to do on stage using his iPad. One of the funniest times was when a caller was trying to ask the cast about their ages in relationship of the ages of their characters, but their cellphone signal was so bad that only every other syllable was audible. Obviously, the Glee cast had no idea what they were trying to say. Enjoy this captioned image of Jenna, Cory & Amber’s confused faces:

On The Red Carpet Talks to Harry Shum & Cory Monteith

Posted by Rob on Apr-09-2010 under Cory Monteith, Harry Shum, Interviews, Videos

ABC Television’s entertainment news website OnTheRedCarpet.com has posted video interviews with Cory Monteith and Harry Shum Jr. They cought up with Cory on the set of his recent OP Commercial that he filmed with fellow Glee cast member Dianna Agron. As we know, Cory used to work as a Walmart people greeter, so it’s kind of funny that he’s now representing a brand that is exclusive to Walmart only.

They talked to Harry Shum Jr. at recent Hollywood premiere for the video game Splinter Cell: Conviction. When asked about tips for the open casting call for season 2, Harry said that people should be themselves, but having some crazy hair wouldn’t hurt. Also, incorporating dance is a plus.
