Everyone seems to be up in arms over the photos of Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele in their racy pictorial for GQ shot by Terry Richardson, saying that they are too young, they are role models, the photos are hypersexual, etc.
Um, seriously…get over it. Or get behind a real issue if you want to fight for something.
Agron took to her Tumblr to explain her view on the photos:
“…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?” – wonderful point.
She continued by saying, “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…”
Good for her. Sure they were racy, but you know what – that’s what sells magazines. You don’t want to support it, then don’t buy the magazine. Also, it’s not as if Glee isn’t full of innuendo or sexual references that may not be suitable for children of all ages so again, no surprise.
I just wish people would stop wasting their breath on things like this and make a difference in matters that impact us all.
