Lea Michele is beaming in this shot from her feature for V magazine.
Shot by Terry Richardson, the 27-year-old actress opened up about her music, and her goody two-shoes image. Check it:
On finding her own sound for Louder: “I started working with Anne Preven, Felicia Barton, and Bonnie McKee right out of the gate, and we came up with some great, awesome pop songs. But closer to the beginning of this year – four or give months into making the album – the label was like, ‘this is great, but we need more of you in here. You sound like you’re singing awesome songs that are similar to Katy or Keily. We need more Lea Michele.’”
On the song ‘If You Say So,’ her tribute to Cory Monteith: “It’s the only song that no one’s heard. I can’t talk about it until people hear it. I just feel like people should hear it and I don’t know if im ever going to talk about it. It’s just one of those things where I understand what it means and you can take it or leave it. That song is for me.”
On defying her goody two shoes image: “My friends call me Grandma, but like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay? So I’m fine with it. I just do my thing. I do wht’s best for me. That’s it.”
On doing what makes her feel good: “I don’t like things that other people like. I don’t like clubs or crazy, loud music. I don’t drink a lot, and maybe that makes me boring, but I’d rather be in bed watching Homeland with my cat, Sheila, eating a sandwich.”
