Lea Michele swings by the Kate Somerville Spa on Friday afternoon (March 7) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 26-year-old actress/singer will be meeting fans tomorrow at The Grove for a Louder meet, greet and signing event.
“I can’t wait to meet some of my LA Leanatics tomorrow!” Lea wrote on Twitter.
In a recent interview with LA Times, Lea opened up about dealing with the tragedy of losing Cory Monteith while working on the album.
“Now that I had this experience happen to me … we decided to write about it…After we had this very, very emotional writing session we were about to end the day and she [Sia Furler] says, ‘Listen to this song.’”
Lea continued, “I just literally keeled over because grief is a very scary thing, and there comes a point where it can really take you down. [The song] lifted me up. It was what I needed to get through my difficult situation.”
“I’ve basically talked to [Ryan Murphy] about it every day,” Lea told Billboard. “If I could get my fans to start working on that for me, that would be great. I’ve been literally begging him.”
She added, “But it would probably have to be for their season five or something like that. I think it would be a great opportunity for people in the acting world to see. I moved to L.A. after working on Broadway and immediately got Glee. People were introduced to me as Lea Michele, but really as Rachel Berry. Outside of Glee and outside of this record will be continued opportunities for people to see me as an actor and as a singer.”
FYI: Lea is wearing LivHaley‘s Pave Disk Studs LG.
“That’s really what I sought out to do when making this record,” she shared. “Moving to Los Angeles from working on Broadway I was cast on ‘Glee’ within just a few weeks, so I really was introduced to the world as Rachel Berry. I wanted to take this opportunity in making this record to really let my fans know who I am, and I think the music should be personal.”
Lea added about possibly returning to Broadway: “I was so surprised with how much I fell in love with this recording process in making this album and I definitely want to make another one. So once I feel like I’ve scratched that itch completely, Broadway is definitely where my heart is.”
FYI: Lea is wearing Jennifer Fisher jewelry.

Lea Michele – Good Morning America Interview, 03/05
In “Trio”, With graduation approaching, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) is worried about losing her McKinley family after they all go their separate ways. In order to make the time they all have left together more memorable, she, Blaine (Darren Criss) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) decide they need to say goodbye to their alma mater in dramatic fashion by staging a Senior Lock-In.
But, when Principal Sue (Jane Lynch) abruptly cancels the event, the trio decides to take matters into their own hands, and get more than they bargained for.
Lea Michele is happy as can be on the April 2014 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands March 11th!
The 27-year-old Glee star opened up to the glossy about her late boyfriend Cory Monteith, her debut album Louder, and more. Check it:
On a Glee spin-off: “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!”
On her record: “I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering – I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn’t record any songs that I didn’t completely relate to.”
On Cory: “I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”
