Dianna Agron on Glee GQ Photo-Shoot: “Everyone Else Does it”

Dianna Agron wrote a ridiculous apology on her blog, and it clearly proves that she still doesn’t understand the problem with the GQ photo-shoot. She apologizes and then says, “in 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.” I’m going to break this down for both Dianna, and for GQ Magazine, who defended their uncreative photographer by saying, “these ‘kids’ are in their twenties and should be able to “do what they want.” Here goes. The problem is not that Glee is a family show, and young children will be exposed to the magazine. The problem is that women in the entertainment industry are consistently sexualized by men, and yet they continue to pose nearly naked. Do you ever see Reese Witherspoon on the cover of a magazine in her underwear? She’s the only celebrity that has spoken out about her deliberate choice to keep her clothes on in photo-shoots. It isn’t necessary, and the next time the photographer comes up with the unoriginal idea, perhaps Lea Michele and Dianna Agron should stand up for themselves.

Glee Cast Strips for GQ Photo-Shoot — Is this Necessary?

What do you do when your show is successful? Take pictures of the female cast members in their underwear, of course.  Dianna Agron and Lea Michele took some very racy pictures for GQ Magazine, presumably because the photographer is an unoriginal pervert who could only think of taking sexual photos.  I’m curious how the conversation went.  Here’s what I imagine: “Hey Lea and Dianna, you know what would be really great?  If you just stripped down to your underwear and posed with a come-fu*k-me face.”  This isn’t the first time Lea Michele has posed in her underwear, so I’m guessing she’s comfortable with it.  For the life of me I’ll never understand why actresses feel the need to sexualize themselves in the entertainment industry.  Reese Witherspoon might be the only celebrity that refuses to do it, and I’m sure she’s endlessly propositioned.  By the way, isn’t Glee a family show?  To see the pictures in question, click the link below.


Vintage David Letterman — A Very Funny Jim Parsons Interview

I have a couple of confessions to make before writing this post.  First, I tricked you with my title.  Jim Parsons’ Letterman interview was taped in May of this year, which is not exactly “vintage,” but I had to think of a clever title to make up for the fact that I missed this great interview when it originally aired.  To assuage my embarrassment, I’d like to remind you that celebrities often wear dresses on the red carpet that they call “vintage,” which basically just means it wasn’t hand-made with them in mind.  Remember Reese Witherspoon’s “vintage” Chanel dress at the Golden Globes, which was actually worn by Kirsten Dunst the year before?  My second confession is that I don’t watch the Big Bang Theory, despite its incredible success.  But after watching the interview below, I might have to start.  Jim Parsons recently picked up an Emmy for his role on the show, which I’m guessing he seriously deserves.  Watch and enjoy!
