A Bundled-Up Lea Michele Sings 'America the Beautiful' at 'Super Bowl XLV' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 7th 2011 1:03AM
Lea Michele, 'Super Bowl XLV'Christina Aguilera may have gotten the opportunity to bungle the lyrics of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at 'Super Bowl XLV' (Sun., 3:30PM ET on FOX), but FOX was able to book-end their coverage of the big game with 'Glee'-related material by featuring Lea Michele belting out 'America the Beautiful' at the top of the game along with their new episode afterward.

The 'Glee' starlet looked very warm in a thick and long coat. Considering it was an indoor stadium, we couldn't figure out why she felt the need to be so bundled up.

Maybe she was so nervous about the live performance that she forgot to take off her coat before walking out there. Maybe she forgot to put on the right dress under the coat. Can you imagine her taking off her coat in the dressing room to see her sleepwear underneath?

Awww! See a 12-Year-Old Lea Michele in Old Documentary Footage

by PopEater Staff, posted Dec 25th 2010 10:00AM
Lea MicheleWhat was 'Glee' star Lea Michele like back in 1998? Well, a lot like her character, Rachel Berry. Twelve years ago a pair of filmmakers made a documentary about kids in the entertainment business. Back then, Michele was starring in Broadway plays. A portion of the documentary hit YouTube and it's adorable.

Michele, who at the time was well known in theater circles for her role in Broadway's 'Les Miserables,' talked about surviving the "really tough dog-eat-dog business" of Broadway.

"Being in the business has kind of made me grow up so fast," said little Michele. "Everyone says 'You're so mature' ... I can do anything! And that's how I, you know, stay sane."

'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Is So 'Not Cool'The musical drama 'Glee' is pretty hip right now. But does that coolness transfer over to one of the show's stars?

On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson talked with Jayma Mays -- who plays the OCD-afflicted guidance counselor on 'Glee.' While asking Jayma about her odd first name, Craig learned that Jayma's parents were wannabe hippies who simply made the name up. The hippie thing was strike one against Ms. Mays (the host isn't a fan of them). "Not cool," he said.

Craig gave Jayma another chance to show she was "cool." He placed a dollar bill on his desk and told the actress not to steal it. Unfortunately, Jayma failed this test as well.

GQ's 'Glee' Photo Shoot Continues to Be Controversial, For Some Reason

by PopEater Staff, posted Oct 21st 2010 1:30PM
GQ Editor on 'Glee' Photo Shoot: 'They're Old Enough to Do What They Want'GQ's sexy photos of 'Glee' cast members are still making headlines. After the Parents Television Council said the photo shoot "borders on pedophilia," featured star Dianna Agron apologized on her blog to offended parties, but also issued a defense.

"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," she wrote. "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?"

Meanwhile, GQ editor in chief Jim Nelson responded to the Parents Television Council, telling The Insider: "The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy."

'Glee' Girls Gone Wild in GQ Photoshoot

by Ryan McKee, posted Oct 19th 2010 8:00PM
'Glee' stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron are featured in a significant photo spread in November's issue of GQ magazine. At some point during the shoot by photography Terry Richardson, the girls lost most of their clothing.

"I don't know how they got me to do half the stuff I did," says Lea Michele.

Hmm, we're guessing they just asked her. Michele doesn't seem to have a problem flashing skin since she also went topless this month in a photo spread for Marie Claire UK. She also appears more confident in the exhibitionist shots than her counterpart Agron. Is Michele already focused on burning off her good-girl, high school student image?

As for Monteith, he just looks happy to be there - as would any man. Click here for the full gallery.

'The Simpsons' Premiere: 'Glee,' 'Flight of the Conchords' Show Up and Sing (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 27th 2010 1:00AM
'Simpsons' Premiere: 'Glee,' 'Flight of the Conchords' Show Up and SingThis is the 22nd season of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox). Wow, has it really been that long? The years have just flown by. This particular 'TV Squad' writer still remembers when the first episode of the show came on. I happened to be in middle school when 'The Simpsons' debuted, which means that:

1) I'm really old now.

And ...

2) Gosh, 'The Simpsons' has been on TV for a really long time. I also recall when the show was considered so scandalous that Bart Simpson t-shirts were banned in my school for being too "in your face," but that's neither here nor there ...

At any rate, moving on ... 'The Simpsons' is now a beloved cultural institution, featuring many, many celebrity guest stars. And tonight's episode is no different. The show welcomes Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, stars of 'Flight of the Conchords,' -- and members of the identically named band, which is "New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a capella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo." Yay! ... Oh, and some people from 'Glee' show up as well.

Lea Michele: 'Funny Girl'?

by Rich Keller, posted Jun 10th 2010 10:45AM

Lea MicheleIt seems that 'Glee's' Lea Michele could have an opportunity to channel Barbra Streisand on a more regular basis.

In a new interview with the NY Times, Bob Boyett, who is producing the 2012 Broadway revival of 'Funny Girl,' sang the praises of Michele, whose character, Rachel Barry, is obsessed with the Oscar-winning legend.

"I think Lea is wonderful, she's great, and she would certainly be on anybody's list. She's also got a pretty good gig going now," he said, when asked whether she'd be considered for the role.

No word yet on who might actually get the role, although Boyett did say, "There have been a few Hollywood types who have expressed interest, but we're also open to going with an unknown actress."

Streisand originated the role on Broadway in the original 1964 production, and subsequent film adaptation in 1968.
