Some people are upset by Glee's Lea Michele on the cover of Cosmopolitan



tbd-leamichelecosmo021011.jpgIt's been almost four months since people freaked out over Glee actress Lea Michele's GQ cover, so it's time to gin up the controversy again. Hey, Lea, could you please wear a ridiculously plunging neckline on the cover of Cosmopolitan's March issue and make some mommy blogger mad? Thanks so much.

It seems some people aren't happy that Lea is dressing like a Cosmo model on the cover of Cosmo. We turned to Fox for this one, natch, since they seem to be the ones most upset by this: "It's irresponsible to be using an adult who represents a minor dressed in provocative clothes," Mamarazzi Knows Best blogger Suzette Valle told them. "I think Cosmo is now taking advantage of the raucous (that should be ruckus, natch) GQ caused with their Glee cover and hoping to cash in on the press that got." Well, no doy. That's not even as obvious as what Cult of Celebrity author Cooper Lawrence spewed.

"You can be sexy without looking ridiculous, and she just looks ridiculous. It's not genuine," Lawrence said about the 24-year-old. "Lea Michelle may be an adult, but to pretend that she doesn't know her fans are 11 is just ignorance. Why take the risk that even one teenager will get the wrong message of from her idol? Now she is just turning off the parents of these kids who are her future consumers." What genius! And what does Cosmo have to say about all this?

"We're thrilled to feature Lea Michele on the March cover of Cosmopolitan magazine and think she looks stunning," a rep tells Fox. "Michele is a grown woman and Cosmopolitan is a magazine is for adults." Oh, stop making sense.
