'Glee' cast members react to GQ kerfuffle
In light of the pseudo-controversy over those "Glee" GQ photos, a couple of cast members from the show have spoken out.
Dianna Agron -- otherwise known as Quinn Fabray, who flashes some flesh in the GQ spread, albeit not as much as co-star Lea Michele -- posted an apology to her Tumblr blog.
"Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry," she writes. "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?"
She also notes -- touching on the same subject that I addressed in our first blog post two days ago about the magazine pics that have since blown up into "Glee"-gate -- that she understands why some fans may be disheartened by the images.
" 'Glee' is a show that represents the underdogs, which is a feeling I have embraced much of my own life, and to those viewers, the photos in GQ don’t give them that same feeling. I understand completely."
Agron is careful to note at the beginning of her post that her comments are only representative of her own feelings, not her co-stars' nor the network's. So far, the other two GQ Gleeks -- Michele and Cory Monteith -- have remained mum. But Mark Salling, who plays Puck on the show, doesn't think there's any reason to apologize.
"We're obviously not in high school," he told a radio show host, as noted by Us. "It's tongue-in-cheek that we're in high school, so whatevs. ... There's more important things to worry about in the world."
Meanwhile, absolutely no one is freaking out about Taylor Momsen's equally racy photo on the cover of Revolver magazine. And Momsen, who grew up here in the Washington area, actually is 17.
But she's not on a show where she sings covers of Journey tunes, so maybe the Parents Television Council doesn't care as much?
