Lea Michele is ready for the world to see her with her hunky new man.
Six months after meeting on the set of her “On My Way” music video, the Glee star, 28, and her model boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, went public with their romance at Wednesday’s amfAR L.A. Inspiration Gala in Hollywood.
The pair happily posed for photographers while cuddled up at their table. Lea, in a low-cut gold Versace dress, had her hands resting on her beau while he wrapped an arm around her.
Lea Michele covers the April 2014 issue of Seventeen magazine. Lea wears a short orange top on the cover. She wears several crop tops in the cover shoot by Kenneth Willardt. You can view the photos here. In the interview, Lea talks about her album Louder and being confident in her body.
On Her New Album : “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.”
On Body Confidence: “I’m very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell, My neighbors will freak out!”
On Rumors of a Glee Spin-off : “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway.”
Lea Michele stuns in a new Terry Richardson -shot spread for V Magazine .
The actress says of posing in the provocative, risqué outfits (see above) , “My friends call me Grandma, but, like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay?”
She adds, “So I’m fine with it. I just do my thing. I do what’s best for me. That’s it.”
Michele goes on to share that she follows that same mentality in her social life, too.
“I don’t like things that other people like. I don’t like clubs or crazy, loud music. I don’t drink a lot, and maybe that makes me boring,” she says, “but I’d rather be in bed watching ‘Homeland’ with my cat, Sheila , eating a sandwich.”
Of course, the spotlight on Michele is set to get even brighter with the upcoming release of her debut solo album.
“Enjoying a relaxing weekend in sun with my best friends. So happy!” She captioned the photo
Actress Lea Michele covers the March 2014 issue of Teen Vogue . Lea was interviewed by her best friend, actor and singer Jonathan Groff, for the Teen Vogue cover. He asked Lea about her debut album and about what Cory Monteith thought about her album.
On Her New Album: “During Glee , I felt like I was scratching that itch of being an artist. I was at a great place in my life and I was so unbelievably happy-my relationship with Cory made me feel like I could reach for the stars and more. So I was like, ‘I’m going to challenge myself and do this record now.’ It’s obviously pop, but I think it shows me off as a singer.”
On Why The Album is Called Louder : ” Louder is like me. I’m loud, I come from an Italian family, I don’t stop talking.”
On What Cory Monteith Thought About: “He was such a fan, you don’t understand. He would be like, ‘You’re going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?’ He would say, ‘This is going to be big!’ And I’d be like, ‘I don’t know.’ He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything. He loved ‘Battlefield.’ I’m getting chills thinking about it. I would say ‘Burn with You’ was his favorite. He came into the studio that day.”
Lea Michele has debuted “What Is Love.”
The song follows “Cannonball,” “Battlefield” and “Louder.”
It comes from the “Glee” star’s album Louder .
Well that’s one way to beat the heat!
Lea Michele did her best to cool down following a rigorous hike with her gal pal in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The Glee star stripped down to just a sports bra and clutched her tank top throughout the rest of the walk.
The actress multitasked by working up a sweat during her hilly jaunt and working on her tan!
Michele rocked a headband and fanny pack as her friend opted to keep her white tank top on.
And following the ladies’ hike, the two went to local favorite Earth Bar to enjoy green smoothies and a bag of kale chips.
Early Monday morning Michele jumped on Twitter to share behind-the-scenes pics of her filming the 100th episode of Glee .
Lea Michele premiered her “Cannonball” music video on Thursday.
The track, released last month, is the first single from the “Glee” star’s upcoming debut solo album, Louder .
What a view, right?!
Lea Michele can definitely demand attention with her powerhouse vocals, but this time she did it while staying completely silent and showing off some of her other great assets. The Glee star made her Instagram followers stop mid-scroll on their news feed when they saw a snapshot of the 27-year-old celeb posing in a revealing thong bikini while vacationing in Mexico.
“What an amazing week in Mexico…New day. New year. #Bringit2014,” she captioned the picture. Once you peel your eyes off of her backside, you realize that there’s actually a gorgeous scenic view, as well.
The brunette beauty has been keeping a low profile over the holidays, after working hard to promote her first solo album Louder .
However, she made sure to send her well wishes to Twitter followers as the new year approached.
“Wishing everyone a very happy new year.. Sending much love.. So grateful l to all of you for all your endless love and support this year.,” Lea tweeted .
Before getting cheeky in Mexico, Michele became one with nature by enjoying a hike in sunny California over Christmas. “Christmas in California:) #freshair #hike #nature,” she captioned the pic-framed photo on Thursday, Dec. 26.
The star had vowed to put her “feet up recharge, relax and breath in some fresh air” over the holidays, and it seems like she’s doing just that (and some).
