oh holy i couldn't give a crap...

so, thanks to prudish mothers everywhere controversy has been created out of absolutely nothing!!!! everyone from perez hilton to katie couric to billy ray cyrus has an opinion about gq's latest cover story. cory monteith(28), dianna agron(24), and lea michele(24) our favorite gleeksters posed in a racy spread for the magazine and have caused quite a stir. and honestly, i don't understand why it's a big freaking deal!!!! do you!? katie couric thinks that will schuster would be "disappointed" in the young stars and that their behavior is very "un glee like." eye roll. what is the problem here!? these actors are mid-twenties and monteith is nearly 30 it's not like we are objectifying children here!!! dear sweet jesus! why make such a fuss about it!? is it really that big of a deal!? answer. no. fact.
so, i am so glad kids are watching glee because i think that it sends a super positive messages about being misunderstood in school, that being different is okay!!! not only is it okay, it should be celebrated!!!! and it fills my heart with joy that a family based prime time show openly discusses homosexuality in such a thoughtful and real way. i hope that it teaches kids compassion and open mindedness. two things that i thing the world lacks big time! and not to mention the music, it's about friggin' time kids new who queen and journey were!!! geez. 
okay, so i understand that children watch glee, but come on, what kid reads gq?!? aren't they more the "teen beat" crowd? so, the way i see it, it's the parents who are pissed, not the kids. in fact, i bet the kids don't have a damn clue about these photos. and if they do. i bet they don't care. so, why make such a stink about it? why make these ladies feel bad for having a little fun. dianna and lea are stunning and in ah-mazing shape, why not show it off while you got it!? and come to think of it, what star out there hasn't posed scantly clad!? i'm serious! jen garner had a maxim and a rolling stone spread, olivia wilde has taken it off for countless magazines, rachel ray posed in nothing but a panties and an apron, kim kardashian takes off her clothes every chance she gets, hilary duff, emmy rossum, keri russell, diane kruger, annie hathaway, and so on and so forth... so why do these actors have to take such heat?! because they play high school students?! well, that's bollocks and make very little sense. i mean cory's character finn has sex with santana, a skank who has sexy time with bimbo cheerleader brittany. rachel's character has two dads and is a bitchy control freak who only cares about winning. and dianna's character just gave away her baby... yeah, the baby she had in high school... 
it's not like this show is about vacation bible school with saved by the bell issues. the show has a delightfully quirky taste on reality and come on, it's not squeaky clean nor are it's stars. poor dianna arragon even took to her blog apologizing for offended people, saying that this photo shoot is not "who she is." personally, i don't think she needs to apologize for a damn thing. if a kid has a copy of gq lying around, well, it's probably daddy's and in that case, who's fault is that!?
so, come on tell me. is the fuss around this spread really necessary? what's your take on the situation? if you were a celeb and had the opportunity to do a racy photo shoot would you?!

  1. I have to say I think they may have gone a little too far and it seems to me it is likely a PR stunt to build up more conversation about the brand but they are some fun shots and you're right - no children should be reading this anyway!! :)

  3. Yea, it is quite dumb to make such a big deal about it, and by making a big deal about it all the kids are going to notice now :p

  4. i think people need a hobby. katie couric is just pissed that after she left the Today Show her career went into the crapper.

  8. As long as children aren't reading GQ I think it's fine.

    Check out one of my latest posts on Taylor Momsen posing for Revolver magazine. Now THAT'S not okay.

  9. lol I dont mind these pictures, they're just in their underwear, not that racy. and they look like they're just having fun. I think people just like to complain these days!

  10. I could care less. They're all adults on a hit show trying to prolong their spotlight ... heck, I would do the same thing. With that said, I do admit to being vaguely uncomfortable with Lea's pictures. Some article said that it looked like she was trying too hard. Maybe it's that or I'm just prudish? Or I picture her as Rachel Berry? Idk, but bottom line ... I don't care.

  11. Oh my freaking gosh I couldn't agree with you more. This blog basically just says everything going through my head regarding this ridiculous topic.

    The fact that these actors are in their TWENTIES, Glee is not an after-school Bible show, and the photoshoot was clearly not for children, just makes all those protesters look like jackasses. I feel like all those upset moms out there owe me an apology for wasting my time having to hear about this bullcrap. I mean, seriously?

    This photo shoot is nothing compared to what Britney & Christina did when they were 19. Are we really not used to sexy young stars by now? Wtf.

    It does piss me off that actress apologized. She's over 21, she looked hot, her clothes were on, and she wasn't humping a horse or anything. I'm not quite sure why she was so disappointed with her decision to do this shoot...

    Sorry I could go on forever, but I would basically just be repeating your awesome post. :P

    Hope you have a great weekend! xo

  12. Hmm. What is Katie Couric doing brandishing personal opinion on the CBSNews website anyway? Shouldn't she be maintaining some separation between her personal opinion and her supposedly unbiased reporting of the news. Nevermind Mr. Schuester, anyone who watches you should be disappointed, Ms. Couric.
    As for me, clearly I have problem with this spread. Yes, it's racy, but who gives a crap? They're adults.

  16. I might not be a fan of the photos, but I dont see what the big deal over them is. The actors are not the same as their characters, they have their whole lives and should be able to do what they want (legally) with it!
    Anyway, does anyone really care about what Katie Couric thinks?

  17. Interesting! I'd heard about this editorial but hadn't yet seen any of the images. Having seen them now for the first time, I'm on the fence. I have to think about this one...

  18. I have to wonder if the pissed-off mothers are the same ones who let their "little girls" go strutting around in uber-short-shorts with things like "Juicy" written across their ass. I mean, really. Teens are dressing like streetwalkers these days. . . so let's think about that.
