Okay, so you know those AWESOME GQ pics of Glee starlets Lea Michele and Dianna Agron? If you haven't seen them, see the sweet Celebrity Hot Sauce post: Glee Girls Gone Wild.
Well, those pictures have sparked a big stinking controversy, as people like CBS's Katie Couric - a supposed newswoman - and The Parents Television Council have gone all mental suggesting the pictures are pedophilic. Uh, there's just one big problem with that theory. Lea Michele is 24 years old. Dianna Agron is 24 years old. THEY ARE FULLY GROWN WOMEN. Hello? McFly? Can you believe this f**king s**t? So anyways, here's the PTC complaint:
"It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on 'Glee' in this way. It borders on pedophilia. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions on the show's direction. And it isn't good for families."
GQ, of course, fired back, telling them they're a bunch of sad little losers:
"The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy. As often happens in Hollywood, these 'kids' are in their twenties. Cory Monteith's almost 30! I think they're old enough to do what they want."
But poor Dianna Agron, feeling caught in the middle and trying not to end up with a tarnished image or damaged career prospects due to the closed-minded boycott-type efforts usually employed by these rectally pinched-up types, felt compelled to write the following on her blog:
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. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. 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? For GQ, they asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' version. At the time, it wasn't my favorite idea, but I did not walk away. I must say, I am trying to live my life with a sharpie marker approach. You can't erase the strokes you've made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate. I'm moving forward from this one, and after today, putting it to rest. I am only myself, I can only be me. 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."
Man oh man... when a full-grown woman has to apologize to a bunch of spinster prohibitionists for not being a teenager, though she plays one on TV, the world has just gotten... pathetic. Oh my - I think I got the vapors! A scantily clad woman appeared in a magazine! Oh my! Bring me my smelling salts, Jeeves!
