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.

During the hayloft scene, where we always open-mouth kissed. I had the stomach flu and I was going to vomit in your mouth. You opened your mouth and I was like, “Nuh-uh.”

Lea Michele interview

Elle Magazine interviews Michele about the death of her boyfriend and costar Cory Monteith.

A lighthouse doesn’t save the ships; it doesn’t go out and rescue them, it’s just this pillar that helps to guide people home. Someone once told me that, and I love the image. Lately, I’ve been using it as a guiding metaphor. I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life.

Shape Magazine interview


Michele tells Shape Magazine about Hands for Habitat, an online auction which benefits Habitat For Humanity. 

It’s such an amazing cause! We have all these handprints, which you can find on the Valspar Facebook page. You can bid on them and all the donations and proceeds go to the Habitat for Humanity Disaster Response Program. It’s really such a great thing that so many people have donated their hand prints and have gotten super creative, although mine are definitely the best and should be bid on the most (laughs).

I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome. But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.

If a man is strong and opinionated, he’s considered powerful, but if you’re a woman, it’s regarded negatively.

cosl-2010-12-coverMichele and Monteith appear on the cover of the December 2010/January 2011 issue of Teen Vogue magazine. Michele talks about going from Broadway to the small screen and Cory talks about how he stays out of the tabloids.

I see the people in the tabloids, the ones that get bad press, who have kind of gone off the edge, and I try to study them so that I don’t do that. It seems like they lost focus at some points, that’s the one thing they all have in common. The beauty of this show is that it’s impossible for us to do that. We work 24/7/365. And I love it.

Emmy nomination


Michele is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Rachel Berry on Glee.

The ceremony is on my birthday, so it’s like the best birthday present in the entire world… What a great birthday party. I think last year mine was at a sushi restaurant or something.
