Parents Group says GQ ‘Glee’ cover “borders on pedophilia”

According to The Parents Television Council, the latest GQ photo shoot has gone too far. The ‘Glee’ girls appear in the magazine half dressed. See the full photo shoot here. Read the statement they posted:

“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. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

“Many children who flocked to ‘High School Musical’ have grown into ‘Glee’ fans. They are now being treated to seductive, in-your-face poses of the underwear-clad female characters posing in front of school lockers, one of them opting for a full-frontal crotch shot. 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.

“While this photo shoot and the direction of the show in its second season have caught many parents off guard, we were concerned this might be coming. ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy has declared that it is his goal in life to remove every barrier to the depiction of explicit sex on TV. On Bravo’s ‘Sex in the Box’ Murphy said, ‘It’s tough to get that sexual point of view across on television. Hopefully I have made it possible for somebody on broadcast television to do a rear-entry scene in three years. Maybe that will be my legacy.’

“With a demonstrated market of eager fans for an entertaining, musical-themed program like ‘Glee,’ we wonder why the show’s creators feel the need for such graphic sexualization of women. Interestingly, the photos of the male character showed him wearing a shirt, tie and vest.

“Parents need to be on guard as we expect the show to push the envelope even further. Unfortunately, it seems ‘Glee’ is only masquerading as family show and is far from appropriate for young viewers,” Winter concluded.

Even the Glee stars are surprised by the GQ shoot, titled “Glee Gone Wild!”

“I don’t know how they got me to do half the stuff I did” for the GQ shoot, said Michele. “But I was in really good shape this summer, so…”

Said Agron: “I’ve never been shot in so little clothing.”

Here are more pictures from the Glee photo shoot I posted earlier this morning. Lea Michele certainly looks comfortable posing in her underwear! While I know she’s 24 in real life, she plays a young teenager on FOX’s hit, Glee. Awkward!

What does Lea say about the provocative photo spread? (No pun intended)

“I don’t know how they got me to do half the stuff I did.” Michele says. “But I was in really good shape this summer, so … ”

Lea Michele: “F— Those People” Who Told Me to Get a Nose Job

Glee’s Lea Michele tells the November issue of GQ she is proud she never got a nose job.

“I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one,” she says in the issue, according to an excerpt (courtesy of JustJared). “And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t. F— those people. That’s why I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’”

Above is Lea in the new GQ magazine. Want to see the rest of this controversial photo shoot? Click here!

‘Glee’ stars GQ cover too inappropriate?

When I first saw these pictures this morning online, I thought they were a bit too steamy! Maybe I’m just showing my age, here, but aren’t these pictures a bit naughty? I know they’re not teenagers in real life, but they play teenagers on TV. I’m not sure that spreading your legs in your underwear is in good taste.

Glee stars Cory Monteith, Lea Michele and Dianna Agron are on the cover of the latest GQ Magazine.

Is Puck (Mark Salling) off ‘Glee’ for good?

Mark Salling, who plays Puck on Glee, was mysteriously missing from the last episode of Glee. He had been shipped off to “juvenile hall’ and Hollywood Life thinks he may not be coming back at all!

McKinley High School’s bad boy Puck (played by Mark Salling), was banished to juvenile hall in the first scene of the Oct. 12 episode of Glee — and it looks like neither Puck nor Mark will be on the show for the foreseeable future. A source on the set tells exclusively why Mark, 28, is out.

We’re told that Mark may have breached his contract by pursuing his own music career too aggressively. “Mark has been really focused on his own music and it’s actually gotten in the way of his Glee stuff,” our insider explains.

Mark has been very public about his rock-jazz fusion band, Jericho, which has released two albums, Smoke Signals in 2008 and Pipe Dreams just this month. According to our source, Glee execs are unhappy about Mark putting his music before the TV show — and were willing to axe his character to lay down the law.

Mark doesn’t appear to care. “His band means the world to him and he thinks that’s more important than the show at this point,” the source tells us, adding, “He’s young — and I think his team is giving him bad advice.”

I honestly can’t imagine the show without him!
