Lea Michele Covers Seventeen, Talks Cory Monteith Addiction + ‘Granola’ Body Confidence
The Lea Michele media blitz continues in support of her solo album 'Louder.' The singer covers the April issue of Seventeen. She once again discussed the death of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith, which is a still-healing wound, and how she has developed body confidence.
About her late love, the singer and actress said, "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."
We know, we grabbed a tissue, too. What a sweet share!
Michele, who has a trim, toned figure, admitted that she is "very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home."
She's not kidding. "Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell: My neighbors will freak out," she said. Our lips are sealed, Lea!
"I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic," she said. "'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.'"
