Lea Michele Affectionately Opens Up About Cory Monteith "Watching Everything" She Does! What She Says About Their Love Will Bring You To Tears

Lea Michele has mostly stayed quiet about losing the love of her life, but she's about to get Louder.

The Glee star is dropping her first solo album soon (everything we've heard so far is amazing!), and according to her it wouldn't have been possible without the support of Cory Monteith. She says:

"During Glee, I felt like I was scratching that itch of being an artist. I was at a great place in my life and I was so unbelievably happy—my relationship with Cory made me feel like I could reach for the stars and more. So I was like, 'I'm going to challenge myself and do this record now.' It's obviously pop, but I think it shows me off as a singer."

We'll say! Everything we've heard from the record so far is magical! So how did Cory help to create Louder? Lea says:

"My favorite song is, 100 percent, You're Mine. I listened to it the other day—it was the one song I had the most emotional reaction to, just because that's my relationship with Cory."

But Cory wasn't just Lea's muse. He was her biggest cheerleader. She says:

"He was such a fan, you don't understand. He would be like, 'You're going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?' He would say, 'This is going to be big!' And I'd be like, 'I don't know.' He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything. He loved Battlefield. I'm getting chills thinking about it. I would say Burn with You was his favorite. He came into the studio that day…

I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now. There's just something about knowing he's watching everything I'm doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him. I also have a safety net below me—if I fall or if it's too much, my friends and family will be there to catch me."

Lea's fans will be ready to catch her too. But they'll settle for catching that album the second it drops!

    Milk it!
    You're mine was my dead boyfriends favorite song. Go buy it!
    Oh, Battlefield was his favorite. Go buy it now!
    My dead boyfriend loved Burn With You. You can buy it on itunes!
    He was such a fan and loved the album. Did you buy it yet? Cory would have wanted you to buy it.

    I see she's still MILKING IT….

    Yikes, she came off all wrong here. I understand she was his girlfriend and she is still mourning his death, but this came off as her using his death to promote her record. Perhaps that wasn't her intention, but that's how it came off. Even if a lot of the songs are regarding Cory's death, I think it's a very terrible mistake for her to bring him up to promote her record.

    That girl is a real piece of work. So full of herself. Those two weren't even married & she acts like a grieving widow. Still milking it for all it's worth. FUGLY people have to latch onto anything & everything to keep people interested in them.

    This is not the whole interview. Wait and read the rest of it before you judge. She is not using his death to promote anything. She delayed the release of the EP. This is a part of a interview that was given by her best friend, Jonathan Groff. Stop with all the negativity please. Other sites have more of this interview and it will be in Teen Vogue. I can not wait to hear you're mine and I like knowing which songs that Cory liked. Sorry haters but you need to move on to someone else to hate on and leave Lea Michele alone. Her fans want to know how she is doing.

    I think a person has to want to believe the worst to actually think she is milking this to sell albums. That is a really cruel comment to make. It”s hard to imagine what kind of person would think this way - menace to society.

    As a fan, I am thrilled to know what songs were his favorite and that he was actively involved in the creation of her first cd.

    Re: frusciante – she is beautiful and so what if they hadn't gotten married. Just because they weren't married doesn't mean that they didn't love each other. I bet that you do not have any love in your life because someone who did have love in their life couldn't be so judgmental and cruel. My husband and I dated for 8 years before we married and I can assure you that if something had happened to him during that time it would have crushed me just as much as it would now being his wife.

    Re: Gunny

    And you can't see how she is milking this. You are the prime example of a pandered fan.

    When are Lea Michele gonna stop MILKING Cory`s death???..seriously…. you are not the only one who have lost someone….

  10. ^CRAZY says – reply to this


    Re: Lina_Bella – No she isn't the only one to have lost someone. Sorry, I couldn't play on your bad english. But, as someone who was a fan of Cory and a fan of Lea's and their relationship I am glad that she is opening up about what songs Cory liked off of the album. He was the one who stood behind her as she recorded it. For the life of me, I can not understand how so many people who obviously do not like Lea or Cory keep reading stories on how she is coping and then have such negative comments. This world is full of too much hate and life is too short to be so heartless. If I don't like or care for a celebrity, I simply do not read the article. Simple, see how that works?

    It is all about keeping her name in the press!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Maya says – reply to this


    She's my idol and I'm so proud of her <3

  13. chelsea says – reply to this


    some people act here like the knew cory or lea… fact is she never even mentioned him being that part of her album . There was no song linked to him when he was alive. Now he is dead and all she does is because of him? LOL and you ask yourself why HW likes to fuck you all over…

  14. amber says – reply to this


    i listened to the songs she released till now and all are pretty much about break up, breaking free, dissapointment. Erm for someone who was oh so happy that are songs that def. dont hint to that…

  15. Haters for life says – reply to this


    Re: chelsea – You're mine was on the track list and it was always their song. Again, if you don't like reading about Lea and Cory than quite clicking on the stories. Also, she did mention Cory while she was recording the album and Cory spoke of her album and about how proud he was of her. Research before you post negative post about something that you know nothing about.

  16. spell check is awesome says – reply to this


    Obviously being able to spell or use correct grammar is a requirement to post on this blog. Some of these post are so hard to understand.

  17. chelsea says – reply to this


    Re: Haters for life – sorry when? He didnt even RT something about her album. Btw he almost NEVER tweeted or RTed anything. So which support? Are you calling it a support going away for 3 weeks , and dying one day before he should have returned to work? He was obviously SO HAPPY….

    This man faced slut is at it again!!! She needs to be put in a gas chamber!

  19. Jess says – reply to this


    Re: the ghost of Cory – You're a total asshole, writing cruel things about Lea under that name.

  20. EM says – reply to this


    Re: blob – And you can get off the page with Lea Michele on it. You don't have to be here. She's not milking anything. He was her boyfriend for God's sake. You're all idiots. You're stupid. She has the right to talk about him. You know, considering he was there for the making of most of her album, he was her muse, he was her inspiration, oh and ya know, her boyfriend. If you don't like it, then get off the page.

    Re: ^CRAZY – Agreed. Well said.
