Poor Dianna Agron. We knew this was coming. As I noted in the original post, before there was even that much of a backlash, Agron looked pretty unhappy in the pictures and outtakes shot for GQ magazine’s November 2010 cover issue.
The photo shoot, shot by Terry Richardson and his molester lens ™, caused a mini-scandal to which I didn’t pay much mind. The initial pictures were met with cries about its lack of taste and complaints that Uncle Terry only liked to shoot half-naked women while the male on the shoot, Cory Monteith, was fully-clothed sporting two tops, a tie, a coat, and thick pants/ jeans in some photos. While the girls’ underwear was on show in just about every image. Both women gave quotes in which they made their unease unclear. Though Lea Michele had me fooled. On her personal blog, Agron says ‘I am sorry’ to those she may have offended. And says those ‘photos do not represent who I am’. She then makes a remark that no underage fans of Glee should be anywhere near a copy of GQ…
I’d like to start by saying that these are solely my thoughts on the November issue of GQ and the controversy that has surrounded its release. 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? I was a very sheltered child, and was not aware of anything provocative or risque in the media while I was navigating through my formative years. I understand that in today’s world of advanced technology, the Internet, our kids can be subject to very adult material at the click of a button. But there are parental locks, and ways to get around this. I am twenty-four years old. I have been a pretty tame and easy-going girl my whole life. Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am. 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.
