Lea Michele For NYLON September 2012

Lea Michele was shot by NYLON’s Editor-in-Chief Marvin Scott Jarrett for the September 2012 cover wearing a Marc by Marc Jacobs sweatshirt and an ASOS pearl cat ear aliceband.

With the highly anticipated fourth season of her hit show ‘Glee’ returning to screens in the US on September 13, she is TV’s leading lady of the moment.

She talks to the mag about her early start in theatre, her ‘Glee’ co-stars, including beau Cory Monteith, and her upcoming solo pop album.

Be sure to pick up a copy of NYLON magazine when it hits newsstands on August 28.

Enjoy the extracts below.

On her days as a child actor: “I was a weird kid. I was eight years old saying I don’t want a day off. I’d like to work every day, please.’”

Ryan Murphy on Michele’s talent: “I always thought she was very original. Then I heard her sing and I knew there was nobody like her. She’s a very rare talent–she’s very specific and unusual and yet also familiar. She’s in that canon of the great singer-actresses—there’s not many of them.”

On shock value: “I feel like I’m the type of person who likes to shock people a little bit, too. For example, when I was in Spring Awakening, every night I had to do this nude scene. I always loved to find the one person in the audience who I knew was going to be uncomfortable—who throughout the show was cringing in their seat—and when [co-star] Jonathan Groff would undo my top, I loved it! I was like, ‘Take that!! How uncomfortable are you right now? I want you to be uncomfortable!”

On her upcoming first solo album: “I want to make songs where girls can just roll down the windows of their car or dance around in their rooms in their underwear, like, I hate my ex-boyfriend! or I’m so in love! Because that’s what I want [to hear]–power-girl songs.”

    Oh yeah… “I hate my ex”, “I love my boyfriend”… True power-girl.

      I agree Ellie. I always try to see the best in people, including celebs, but there is always something ‘ugh’ about Lea’s interviews.

      I have read in interviews with her friends that she is sweet and loyal and fiercely protective towards her friends, but her best qualities don’t come out in interviews.

        You do realize these are quotes taken out of context form the full interview right?

    I kind of want to own those ridiculous headbands. Really cute cover though.

    The styling of the story is all sorts of wrong.

    love tha asos cat hairband! I need one!
    Lea is a great singer/actress but her interviews always lead to Snoozeville.Seriously everytime I read her I’m just so bored.

    She irritates me. Her comments make her sound egotistical and full of herself (plus I don’t think it should be an actress’s mission to make people feel uncomfortable) and the styling of this editorial was silly. The sexed-up schoolgirl vibe is not a nice one…

    I LOVE that picture where she’s sticking her tongue put slightly. Cute.
