Dianna Agron on Racy GQ Photo Shoot: Sorry!

by at . Comments

Glee may not have aired a new episode this week, but it managed to make an assortment of headlines anyway. Just not the kind many associated with the show would like to see.

Soon after Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith posed provocatively for the cover of GQ, an uproar ensued, led by the Parents Television Council, which said the spread "borders on pedophilia." Katie Couric even addressed the pictorial on the CBS Evening News last night, saying:

"These very adult photos of young women who perform in a family show just seem so un-Glee-like."

In a new blog post, Agron has now spoken out on the issue. 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 goes on to say the following:

"I understand that in today’s world of advanced technology, 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."

What do you think of the racy photo shoot?

The photos with Dianna are pretty tame, especially for GQ. I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of the cover. Lea's photo I think when I little overboard, I think maybe a skirt would have been nice. I happen to think that Glee IS NOT A KIDS SHOW. I don't let my sister watch it. Its for teens, young adults, and adults. There's no way that this show was meant for kids and its not fair to force that one them now. Parents...Here's some advice. Talk to your kids about content, step up instead of bitching.

I'm so sorry she's feeling so guilty that she felt she needed to clear this up. Don't buy your kid GQ and although you can't stop them from finding these pictures on the net, there are way more inappropriate stuff that are just as easy to find. These photos seem very tame compared to those.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
