Glee On Cover Of Rolling Stone: Disappointing & Frustrating
Glee’s Lea Michele (Rachel), Dianna Argon (Quinn), Cory Monteith (Finn), Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester), and Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester) all appear on the cover of the April issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
What they are doing on the cover of THAT magazine is anyone’s guess but any Glee press is welcomed by Gleeks.
The photograph, taken by Mark Seliger, is reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting. Land of Punt thinks the image’s composition is a direct copy of a No-Rock although we couldn’t find the painting on the internet.
The fact that we brought up No-Rock tells you where we’re going with this article. To put it as succinctly as possible, LOP is disappointed in Glee’s Rolling Stone cover.
Why does Michele have to show her off her bum? Yes, it’s not a nice bum, but does everything have to devolve into titillation?
If you retake the picture without the wire in Michele’s skirt, you have a nice little snapshot. As it sits now, your eye is immediately drawn to her posterior. No matter how hard you try you can’t away; you can’t stop thinking about spanking it, biting it, and calling it names in Spanish. Both Michele and “Rachel” deserve better.
In today’s standards the cover is extremely tame but can’t it be 100% tame?
No it can’t because Rolling Stone is in business to sell magazines. And they think in order to move large quantities of ‘zines they need to “sex” everything up.
So why stop at Michele’s backside? Why not show everyone’s backside? Why not strip the cast down and put them in pool of butterscotch pudding? Why not deck them out in leather and latex bondage gear? Or worse yet, why not dress them up like a women’s field hockey team.
To add to LOP’s frustrations, Rolling Stone promotes the cover story thusly:
Rolling Stone’s Erik Hedegaard ventures into the Fox hit’s most controversial corners, uncovering the stories behind stolen car stereos, illegal substances, Facebook-revenge fantasies
Smarmy. Snarky. Sleazy. And very disappointing.
