Glee's Dianna Agron Responds To Haters Of Her GQ Spread

| Filed under: Glee

glee-does-gq-11.jpg

If more girls in this industry had as much maturity as this one, we'd be out of a job!

This week, people became outraged by the scandalous Glee spread in next month's GQ. Haters were appalled by the over-sexualized images of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron. The latter decided she wasn't just going to let people think the worst of her. She took to the internet to explain herself and the photo shoot and she does so with more elaquancy then you hear from most other girls her age.

On her Tumblr, she writes:

"I’d like to start by saying that these are solely my thoughts on the November issue of GQ and the controversy that has surrounded its release. I am not a representative of the three of us, the show, or Fox, only myself.

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. 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?

I was a very sheltered child, and was not aware of anything provocative or risque in the media while I was navigating through my formative years. When I was finally allowed to watch a movie like Grease, I did not even understand what on earth Rizzo was talking about!? I understand that in today’s world of advanced technology, the internet, our kids can be subject to very adult material at the click of a button. But there are parental locks, and ways to get around this. I am twenty-four years old. I have been a pretty tame and easy-going girl my whole life. Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am. I am also not the girl who rolls out of bed with flawless makeup and couture clothing. I am most comfortable with my hair thrown on top of my head, in sweats, laughing with my friends. 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.

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….."

Someone give this girl a pet dragon, NOW! Hell, someone give her two!

We think this was the best way of handling the situation - apologizing to the people who are upset, but no apologizing for being part of the Hollywood machine.

Any comments from you, Lea? Maybe even Cory? We're all ears!

    It was well written and from the heart Those of you who are naive enough to think kids arent being indoctrinated by these images and the entertainment industry in general are delusional. "The parents should control what the kid's watch!" This isn't the 1950's where everyone works a 9-5 job and can look after every single thing their kids watch and learn and see. That's just how they want it though. Force both parents to work and we can corrupt your kids. "What teens buy GQ?" ummmm teens buy magazines with their favorite stars on the cover regardless of content. Hell I bought any magazine with a Justin Timberlake cover from J-14 to Rolling Stone in my teens. I'm not naive enough to think teens aren't already subjected to these things in school, but promoting it so blatantly from the stars of a show that is supposed to represent the "underdogs" and essentially saying, go ahead and sell out to the "beauty myth" of america is the wrong message to send. This is the only country that teaches children you are only beautiful if… I have a 14 year old brother and he said that is all anyone is talking about at his school which has roughly 4500 kids. He said the very next day girls were walking around with lollipops and those socks lea michele was wearing.



  2. 2

    I have so much respect for her now. You got girl and tell it like it is…plus she is 24 who cares if she poses all sexy Megan Fox is about the same age and hell we know she poses just as risque. Anyway mad respect.



  3. 3

    I don't know this girl from Eve but it's refreshing to see real breasts and a woman with meat on her thighs.



  4. 4

    Lea and Cory can't comment now becasue site like this would lam-bast them for only doing it cause Dianna did. I don't like that she apologized, she didn't need to she is adult and she can do what she wants. All these people with their fake outrage are getting on my nerves.



  5. 5

    I think it is ridiculous that people get so upset over this stuff. Really now? Yes, and you don't see people dressing like this everyday that are way out of shape and actually scaring everyone? I do and it is disgusting. People ought to take their outrage and use it to do something positive for a change.



  6. 6

    Obviously these whores are on a regular television show and although their tv show (like other tv shows) push the envelope, it still should not also translate into posing as teenage pornstars as a side effort. I mean seriousleh??? OMG what whoretastic, raunch! These kinds of pictures are only good for one thing. And it's for young and old men to masterbate to. So knowing that, why would you go that far???? And another thing these pictures at a higher resolution are way worse. Note- these pictures look like they have been edited because in another picture online you could see more of her red crotch panty revealed. LOL Just having to say that sickens me.

    I tried to watch Glee this season but it really reallly sucked. Story lines were slow and boring. Maybe that's why they pushed such a racy spread because their ratings went down. Have fun being whores girls! I'm sure all the nasty old men out there will love it!

    Perez, what is your problem? Haters? Get a grip! People have a right to worry about family values and guess what…they have a right to question the sexplotation of their kids and what's on TV. Get over yourself!



  8. 8

    That is so typical "american".

    Here in Germany there a tits, asses all over the television, magazines etc., but we dont flip out, go crazy or take a gun and kill ourselves.
    You can't even say normals words like "shit" on american television, the land of the free.
    Dont get me wrong, I love the vision of America, but where are you heading?
    Bleeping everything out, dont show nudity.

    Grow up America.



  9. 9

    Amen Dianna! Girl you handled that with class People she is just ACTING! Her shots looked more pinup…some of Lea's however looked like she was trying WAYY TOO HARD to be "sexy" and yes the picture with her legs spread opened looked like a porn shot to be honest.



  10. 10

    "elaquancy"? Really?

    Re: lorio25
    "Hell I bought any magazine with a Justin Timberlake cover from J-14 to Rolling Stone in my teens."
    I was subscribing to RS at 14, plus my dad subscribed to GQ, Playboy, and Penthouse, and he didn't attempt to hide them very well. You nor I turned out bad, so I don't see where you're trying to go with this.
    "He said the very next day girls were walking around with lollipops and those socks lea michele was wearing."
    Eh..that's nothing. I'm old school. I grew up when girls were coming to school dressed like Madonna. Now these very same girls are married, plump, Christian soccer moms.
    *
    Parents may not be there for their kids 24-7 to monitor what their kids are doing, but that can't be used as an excuse for the Hollywood media to tone down their content because unsupervised kids may be watching. That would insult my intelligence and any adult's who understands the contents of these media images and knows the difference between fantasy and reality, and besides, it's not Hollywood's job to babysit. GLEE may attract a younger audience, but it's definitely not a kids's show, and if parents have a problem with the GQ spread, and not the content of the show itself, then I question their judgment. A lot of kids 14 and up know more about sex and other stuff than their parents think. If parents aren't in touch with what their kids or watching or doing, they're probably not much in touch with them at all.



  12. 12

    I'm the mom of two daughters, and I'm really put off by the high school theme of this, in a men's magazine no less. Way to promote pedophilia. UGH.



  13. 13

    Re: DanielDax

    Youre missing the point. I'm not saying anything about the content of Glee's show. I actually love the show. It is rated TV-14 and although the teenagers in today's society think they are mature enough to handle sexually suggestive themes, it doesn't change the influence it has on self-esteem. I'm sure a lot of these kids will turn out fine after seeing this, but i'm more concerned about the kids more affluent to peer pressure. The reason the lollipops and socks was an issue was because no one was doing that before the photos came out, so it shows the direct influence these images have on teenage girls. I know teens know more about sex than most adults but that doesn't make it ok for these girls to be photographed as slutty "teenagers." If they had done this shoot anywhere else but a high school it wouldn't be an issue at all. It's the fact that the photographer Terry Richardson ( Who is known for his disgusting content including beastiality) exploits the fact that they play children. These photos show no nudity so there isnt a parental control setting for these pictures to pop up when kids search for glee. I'm not saying we need to censor everything, I'm a huge promoter of free speach, press, etc, but when we do it at the expense of kids, there is an issue.



  14. 14

    Being sheltered is an extreme. To be that sheltered is ridiculous. I wasn't allowed to watch Grease….!? No kid is going to understand what Rizzo is talking about, if their parents have raised them right, not sheltered them, but has raised them right. I was watching Rocky Horror Picture Show at the age of 8. I NEVER had any clue what the movie was REALLY about; I loved the music. Same with Grease, I NEVER had any clue about it because I liked the music. Most people miss the sexual and dirty jokes on Glee because kids like the MUSIC.
    But you ask how kids get ahold of GQ? They don't have to! They can go to ANY online site, they more then likely Google your name Dianna Agron and THESE photos will pop up. Google "Cheerleading" I dare you. Something that's googled in innocence can turn into finding orgies and pictures of their favorite Glee character half naked :) THATS how they get their hands on it. Ever heard of the internet? That's not maturity in Hollywood, that's ignorance.



  15. 15

    the pet dragon in a treehouse photo shoot would have been phenomenal!

    But this "hit me baby one more time" shoot was in totally bad taste. It's not a matter of children seeing it in GQ, it's a matter of once again, sexualizing underage school kids. I'm going to guess that the art director for this shoot was a middle aged white man who has always had fantasies of doing a high school cheerleader in the gym locker room. It's wrong dude. and gross. Doesn't matter that the actual actresses are in their 20s… the look you were going for was not far off from kiddie porn.



  16. 16

    Re: BlissBlair
    Obviously you really don't pay much attention to the show, because then you'd know the ratings for GLEE have been anything but down. Reading the rest of your post, and your overuse of the word "whore," it seems to me you're the one with the dirty mind.



  17. 17

    LOOK HOW CHUNKY HER THIGHS ARE AND HOW SMALL HER BOOBIES ARE. SHE IS ALSO A JEWISH, HER REAL NAME IS AGRONSKY, DONT BE FOOLED BY THE WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING!!



  18. 18

    She's so cute, love her.



  19. 19

    Re: lorio25
    Got your point. I just don't necessarily agree with what you're saying. People were saying the same thing years ago when all the Madonna wannabes were coming to school, that it wasn't done until she started dressing like that and that she was a bad influence (and mind you, I'm not a Madonna fan by any means), but I can't think of one instance where any of that dressing like her led to slutty behaviour (and if they did turn out to be sluts, they were probably prone to be sluts in the first place), and I don't see how sucking on a lollilop and wearing white socks will either (and if your brother's school has a dress code, they won't be coming to school looking like these pictures). Yes, I understand the message these images could possibly portray to young women, and yes I understand how easily accessible ANYTHING is these days, but you can also make the same argument for shows like America's Next Top Model, TV commercials, magazine ads, music videos, etc in that they give women a false idea of beauty and self-image.
    The dressing like Madonna fad phased out quickly, and I'm sure this new fad in your brother's school will also.

    great letter
    "elequancy"?!?! really perez?



  21. 21

    baby, the way you're goin', you'll be outta job regardless. you used to be funny! now…meh :”(



  22. 22

    what happened to the post with lea michele??????



  23. 23

    Oh please! I don't think Glee is really appropriate for young children anyway, I know I record it and watch it after my elementary aged kids are tucked in bed. some of the photos (Lea Michelle's mostly) definitely went a little far, but I wouldn't exactly call them pornography. Miley Cyrus can convulse (sorry, can't call anything she does 'dancing') on stage in lingerie at 17, when the majority of her fan base can't even get in to a PG13 movie alone, but these adult actors that are on an adult show get blasted for posing in a magazine aimed at adults??



  24. 24

    give me a break, who cares about this skank

  25. wwwta says – reply to this


    25

    how are her legs chunky some of you people are absolutely ridiculous



  26. 26

    lol



  27. 27

    elaquancy?? lol perez you're so stupid.



  28. 28

    To be fair, what parents are complaining about is not the sexy pictures themselves, but the fact that they used a high-school theme. They're dressing them like little girls and in suggestive poses (especially Lea who is obviously trying to shed her good girl image HARD!) I'm no prude, and I'm all for celebrating sexuality, but it is kind of creepy to have these actresses dressed in school-girl outfits and showing their panties to the camera. In a magazine targeted strictly for men nonetheless. I mean I think it would've been a lot better if they had them in lingerie, at least they're portrayed as women, not as kids.



  29. 29

    Re: lorio25
    None of the shows you mentioned or even madonna potrayed themselves as teenagers while doing it. Yes those shows perpetuate that ideology, but they don't do so targeting kids as "kids". ANTM main demographic is 18-24. If they were wearing panties with cartoon characters on them, would people see it for what it is? Just because a they are portraying kids that are 17 instead of 12 doesn't make that ok. They are deliberately in a high school setting hoping to appeal to disgusting men who find that hot.

    So eloquent. love this girl!



  31. 31

    What the hell is with all these prudish comments saying that this condones pedophilia??? Do you even know what that word means? It refers to people who have a sexual attraction to prepubescent children! Girls in high school are not prepubescent. They have hips and tits and men are going to find that attractive.This is a fact of life that has always remained constant throughout history - it is not some new problem that has creeped up because those bad gay men in charge of Glee. Rather than pretending 17 year old girls are the same as 7 year olds, these ridiculous house wives should be discussing responsible sex with their kids rather than blaming everything on the media. What an example of shit parenting.



  32. 32

    Re: lorio25 – that doesn't matter that is still the parents job not actors.. they didn't tell anyone else to have children.. they shouldn't have to be on their best behavior for the rest of their lives because of characters they play on tv.. i don't get you people..



  33. 33

    OMG she has a tumblr?



  34. 34

    very well said dianna… as for all the people this is "borderline child pornography", you are ridiculous.

    how many times has this "school girl" thing been played out and not once have people said it crosses those boudaries.. they just say it's slutty.

    just because they portray teenagers on the show doesn't mean they can't take a sexy photo shoot. don't people realize that 99.9 % of actors on television right now that portray high school students, aren't in high school? i mean seriously.

    just because the photo shoot was taken in a "high school" has nothing to do with it. when britney came out with 'baby, one more time' people just said it was slutty, not child porn.

    seriously people.



  35. 35

    ***eloquence



  36. 36

    Re: lorio25
    Yes, but they do attract a teenage fanbase. Madonna's fanbase at the time and the ones mostly dressing like her were mostly teenage girls. Mind you she was 26 at the time, but it wasn't mostly 26 year old women imitating her. GLEE viership also attracts a wide demographic of viewers; it's just not teens watching it. And if you think the intelligent, fashion conscious, affluent, single young to middle-aged men who make up the the majority readership of GQ as "disgusting men who would find that hot," then there's really no point in me continuing this discussion with you.



  37. 37

    Re: gat20blnyour comment is just ignorant and stupid and you are the one who needs to grow up. "Here in Germany there a tits, asses all over the television, magazines etc., but we dont flip out, go crazy or take a gun and kill ourselves." Someone from a place that put Hitler into power should not be lecturing Americans, sorry to bring up the past but you want to bring bullshit like that up. Many people have different views here, it is a large country, larger than yours. Has the US banned this?? No. Some people were offended but this won't be censored, so I have no clue what your issue is. And shit, fuck and nudity are on TV, just not basic cable. Your ignorance is quite annoying, seriously. Have you watched some of our shows like Dexter, Entourage, Sex and the city, etc? Guess what? It's on TV!! Just not basic cable.



  38. 38

    She is pure class!



  39. 39

    WOW - how eloquent and true from the heart. i think this parents rights group (or whatever they are called) needs to start a fire obviously cause no one is paying attention to them!! i don't know much about dianna but i have a new found respect for her as a woman, and an actress, way to go!!! i look forward to following your career for a long time!



  40. 40

    Re: mscalto – Your really a ignorant person to basically say YOU may not have a opinion because Hitler was in power in your country. well America dropped that ball on that too. BIG TIME…. And what she/he said is right. Europe is very liberal when it comes to sex and nudity and you don't see their children doing anything worse than what children do here. Maybe if we quit cattering to children and parents actually disiplined and held them accountable for their actions we wouldnt have a generation of kids who are rude and so damn misbehaved…. Dont ppl rem women used to be married with two kids by the age of 15 16 not all that long ago and they had to cook from scratch and take care of all household duties, but now kids cant deal with a freakin sexy image?? Get a grip. All our children are going to start being pansies!!!!



  41. 41

    Re: DanielDax – I wasn't saying GQ readers were that way at all, I was saying the readers they were specifically trying to appeal to with those shots are disgusting for even creating the marketing idea in the first place. Men shouldnt fantasize about high school girls period. They could have been naked in the magazine for all I care and no one would have the issue with it. The problem is they are "in character" for these shots and like it or not their characters are teenage high school students. Im just saying just because they are 17 doesnt make it any better if they were posing as 12. We have this stigma in society that somehow 16 and up is "fair game" to lust after and its disgusting.



  42. 42

    Re: Connor – yeahhh right, everything I said that wasn't opinion is pretty true and you know it.

    Re: lorio25 – I completely agree.

    Re: mscalto
    "Someone from a place that put Hitler into power should not be lecturing Americans, sorry to bring up the past but you want to bring bullshit like that up"
    Your comment right there is even more ignorant. Are you really trying to bring Hitler into this to prove a point? That's like a foreigner saying "a country that once advocated slavery & segregation shouldn't lecture us."
    I grew up in Germany; I understand what he's talking about. Nudity and what we would consider profanity is very common in mainstream commericals, shows, and advertisements over there. He wasn't necessarily bashing Americans. He was just making an obervation about the different attidudes between American and Germans toward nudity (or Europeans, per se, since attidudes toward nudity isn't unique to just Germany).



  45. 45

    Re: Connor – The only person with a dirty mind is the pervert shooting these pictures, the women ('s) spreading their legs or showing their crotch and you for probably liking it. So your statement is more fit for yourself. I'm not blind ok, it is what it is. And you can't convince me otherwise. And it's obviously not a clean shoot. Just because your famous doesn't mean you should act like a facking skank and oooh it's ok because this male over here wants us to, get over yourselves! They knew exactly what they're doing.



  46. 46

    Re: lorio25
    There is a huge fucking difference between a 17 year old and a 12 year old and if can't see that you must be pretty messed up.

    Guess what? Lollipops have always had sexual innuendo. Pretty girls sucking on things is attractive to men. If this were a photo spread with 10 year olds in heels and sucking on lollipops, then yes, that would be disturbing because 10 year olds aren't sexual beings, they are defenseless children. But 17 year olds have passed puberty years ago and have developed womanly bodies and have sexual urges and a mature enough brain to make their own decisions about them. You're only in denial if you can't see that and it's pathetic that you are genuinely trying to defend a bunch of high strung parents who are too lazy to parent properly and are looking for a scapegoat.



  47. 47

    Re: DanielDax – Guys like this just love Re: babybleau – There's no comparison between Britney's Baby One More Time video and this shoot. The only revealing moment in B's video was her stomach, if you want to call that revealing. Britney wasn't posing in suggestive poses in her underwear at a highschool. She was dancing with clothes on! The most she revealed was her navel that's it!. What are you talking about? You obviously don't know anything. Child/teen porn is illegal are you retarded? But because nobody is actually having sex here so it's "ok." But the pictures are still overly sexualised and those girls are still in character as the feisty teenage highschool girls from Glee. This time they're showing off a little more than their regular Tv show would allow. And ofcourse it's OK because it's GQ and it's a sex magazine geared toward males. What a crock of shit! This is just perverse in more ways than one and all you sickos turning the other cheek are just lying to yourselves b/c facing the truth would be admitting to other things your probably not willing to face yet, without sounding like a shmuck.



  48. 48

    Re: BlissBlair
    Blah, blah, blah,…I only addressed the fact that you were WRONG about Glee's low ratings, and that with your potty mouth, you sound just as bad as the people you're condemning. So all this "you probably liked it" is utter bullshit coming from your fingers, seeing that I'm not attracted to women, nor did I give my opinion whether I found these pics inappropriate or not. I don't think you would know truth though if it came up to you and slapped you silly.



  49. 49

    Her last name is Agron, it comes from Agronsky but was changed generations ago. Her mother, Mary, is catholic. She is half Jewish but practices the faith. I don't even know why I'm correcting this, but if someone wants to insult her based on her beliefs, at least get your information correct. And for those who say she is chunky, she looks pretty slim in these pictures and is actually even skinnier in real life. She is a beautiful and sweet girl. These pictures are so tame, especially considering how risque the show is.



  50. 50

    For the love of god can you get a spell checker or dictionary? "elaquancy" really? OMG.



  51. 51

    In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures..i stopped there.. what a dumb slut.. she should stop justifying shit.. when's her sex tape coming out?.. she already knows some good poses for her cover. You got some fame off an awful karaoke show now try and represent it without posing like ur performing felacio or ready to shoot a sex scene.



  52. 52

    What a doll!

    But I would like to point out, when she was 8 years old, images were not as readily available as they are now because of the internet. I didn't pick up a copy of GQ - yet I've seen these photos splashed EVERYWHERE!



  53. 53

    Re: BlissBlair
    Listen close, Grandma, because you're really starting to sound like an idiot.
    "The only revealing moment in B's video was her stomach, if you want to call that revealing. Britney wasn't posing in suggestive poses in her underwear at a highschool."
    She may have only showed her bellybutton, but the whole Britney video was a take on the whole Lolita/sexually enticing school girl character. I don't know if you ever been to a prep school, but girls at those kind of schools don't walk around the hallways with their mid-riff showing.
    "Child/teen porn is illegal are you retarded? But because nobody is actually having sex here so it's "ok."
    Depicting sexually provocative teenagers by twenty-something actors is not child/teen porn. If it were actual teens actually engaging in actual pornography, then you can call it that.
    "And ofcourse it's OK because it's GQ and it's a sex magazine geared toward males."
    GQ is a fashion/lifestyle magazine geared toward mature males, not a sex magazine. The average reader is more concerned about the D&G fall collection or the latest TAG Heuer watch than they are about a couple of Glee characters.



  54. 54

    I think she is absolutely gorgeous but her leg does look chubby in this pic…not a good angle…surprised it was not photoshopped better.



  55. 55

    Call it what you will. It is what it is. If your best response to all I've written is "you're a potty mouth" then wow I'm just really impressed. And there was a "probably" in that statement so nor was I a hundred percent sure what you were thinking so therefor you basing this off a sentence that was written in uncertainty. And whether you have a view or not on these pictures isn't going to change my view on this issue, so you're clearly wasting my time and your own.
    Re: Connor



  56. 56

    Re: mscalto – well said.



  57. 57

    Re: BlissBlair
    I don't recall stating what I said as my best, and if you think that was my best, that says more about you than me, nor was I trying to impress you (really, don't flatter yourself), and I don't even recall trying to change your mind about ANYTHING. Read my posts. I NEVER said anything about the appropriateness of these pics, or whether I was for or against them. I only addressed you in the context of some of the moronic things you stated about the popularity of the show. You're the one going off on tangents with "uncertain" statements about my character. You invested your own time responding to me repeatedly, so it's your own time you're wasting, dear.



  58. 58

    Re: Sean Knowlingers – Listen here you pervert. There is a huge difference between showing your navel in a music video and posing in your panties and spreading your legs in a photoshoot. Dress code at prep/private schools are irrelevant. Britney was acting sexy by exposing her midriff but she wasn't crossing the line. There is actually a fine line between overly sexualised (pornographic imagery) and sexy. Or did you again fail to see that.

    Re: Sean Knowlingers – Depicting sexually provocative teenagers by characters who normally portray teenagers on their hit TV show is a sick, cheap and easy way to glorify pedophilia. You can spin this any way you want but the truth remains in the backdrop, the props and obviously the characters in which they play that has made them so famous to begin with. It doesn't matter what there age is. They are glorifying an image that is morally wrong in more ways than one. It's funny that you like to turn the other cheek but deep down we both know I'm right. Whether GQ cares more about fashion remains to be seen. The only articles that receive any publicity are the ones where women take their clothes off and objectify themselves ie. Megan Fox ect. Stirring up controversy and adding to their sales. Obviously the priorities of the magazine are indeed on a different view point then the ones in which you speak of. If GQ were really more about fashion then their cover spread would say so. There is enough proof online to vouch for this. Reinstating their same message where if you're not taking it off to get us nice and hard well then you're not worth much.

    "There is a huge difference between showing your navel in a music video and posing in your panties and spreading your legs in a photoshoot."
    Actually, BitchBlair, she wasn't just showing her navel. She was portraying the innocent schoolgirl/sex-kitten type figure that's been a popular theme for decades. Yes, there's a huge difference when one actor doing this is actually underage and the other is an adult. There was similar reaction to Britney's video from parents back when it was released as there is to this photoshoot that you're pretending to be so offended by.
    "Dress code at prep/private schools are irrelevant."
    It was actually quite relevant to my argument, but since you seem to fall left of the bell curve when it comes to intelligence, the easiest thing for you to do was to dismiss it as irrelevant.
    "It's funny that you like to turn the other cheek but deep down we both know I'm right."
    Turning the other cheek? Actually I've been quite forward on my stance, and the only part of "we" who thinks you're right is YOU.
    "There is actually a fine line between overly sexualised (pornographic imagery) and sexy. Or did you again fail to see that."
    Except none of these photos are pornographic. What part of that do you FAIL to see?

    "Depicting sexually provocative teenagers by characters who normally portray teenagers on their hit TV show is a sick, cheap and easy way to glorify pedophilia."
    Except it's young post-pubescent adults they're portraying, not children, which is what pedophilia refers to. Try to learn the definition of some terms before you spew them.
    "The only articles that receive any publicity are the ones where women take their clothes off and objectify themselves ie. Megan Fox ect. Stirring up controversy and adding to their sales."
    The same could be said of Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and every other magazine that does this. They only receive publicity because narrow-minded people like you bring attention to them.
    "If GQ were really more about fashion then their cover spread would say so."
    GQ has been in publication for over 50 years, People already know what the magazine stands for. They don't have to break it down on their cover so people like you can understand. Are you just pretending to be this dumb?

    Yeah, that's right..move on! If you can't handle it, then you shouldn't be wasting your time attempting to argue with people who clearly have a higher grasp on things than you do.

    i love her and i don't see the big hooplah. whatever next week there's something else to talk about.

    As Dianna said she's speaking for herself! Lea doesn't have to apologize if she doesn't want to GQ is a MEN'S mag uh Jennifer Aniston cover hello! If parents don't want their kids buying this stuff or dressing up like skanks then they should sit them down and talk to them. I grew up loving Britney, Christina they were pretty whorey but I never wanted to dress like them or be 'sexy' at 14 because I knew it was wrong. People are just blowing this way out of proportion. And what the fuck is up with all the Lea hate?! She's gotten such a bad rap the girl isn't perfect. She's talented a wonderful actress and singer are people jealous of her talent or something? She doesn't do drugs or a crazy party girl there are worst things that can be done for publicity. I'm a huge Glee fan but hell no I'm not planning on buying this magazine, I'm just not into any of the stuff the pictures are hot but not what I enjoy looking at. I'm not afraid to say they made go "Hmmm, interesting" when I first saw them lol especially Lea's the girls not afraid to go all out! Whatever. There are more important things people should be talking about. I don't even think Dianna should have apologized she's an adult she can do whatever the hell she wants. But it's good for her if that's what she wants to do. I love her, I still love the three of them! That was my 2 cents lol

    If this is the worst thing your child ever sees in a magazine or on television, you are living in the 1950's. It's pretty simple… if you don't want your child to see any of it, don't buy the magazine and don't watch the show. There are so many more things going on here in the states that could use a little attention: crime, unemployment, homelessness, drugs, etc… How about turning some attention on those things???

    This is so stupid. Even if kids don't read this magazine they are going to see women semi-nude anyway.

    Re: Sean Knowlingers – Love your comments, even though your efforts are probably wasted on her. Oh and Re: BlissBlair – , stop shouting pedophilia when this topic involves teens and GQ really is more about fashion, hence their tagline 'look sharp, live smart' (instead of, you know, 'Naked. Women. Inside!').
