Glee Star Shows Too Much for Cosmo? C’mon… Get a Life…

Published February 13, 2011 - 10 Comments

So last week it was reported that some stores in the USA were pulling Cosmo from their shelves this month because the current cover showed a little too much of Glee star Lea Michele.

Uh huh.

Please correct me if I’m wrong… but doesn’t Cosmo always picture an attractive well-known actress provocatively on their cover?  So the problem this month isn’t that there is a woman wearing a plunging neckline on the cover… the problem is who that woman happens to be?

Get over it, people!  Lea Michele is a 24 year old actress who just so happens to play a highschool student on television.  But have you actually seen that television show?  It’s not exactly Mr Rogers Neighbourhood.  If you’re ok with letting your kid watch some of the same-sex kissing (male and female) that has taken place, along with other possibly questionable behaviour, then you really don’t have much of a leg to stand on when a beautiful young woman appears on the cover of a magazine intended for adults portraying herself, and not her alter-ego highschool-aged character.

And don’t get me wrong.  I love Glee.  I think that it’s hilarious, and they manage to address some very important social topics within the context of their comedy.  I just think that there is a certain demographic that needs to relax a little, and maybe take their heads out of their asses.

Stop demonizing people because their beliefs may differ from your own.  Thank you.
