Dianna Agron has apologized for that racy Glee GQ cover and photo-shoot on her Tumblr blog. Apparently the actress got tired of crazy parents groups comparing the Glee pics to pedophilia and she finally caved to the criticism… a little. While she apologizes in her post, she makes it clear that she’s gonna live her life how she wants, which seems reasonable to us seeing as the girl is 24-years-old. Writes the pretty blond:
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?
Good point Di. She goes on to declare how she was a kid who had no idea what sex was until she saw Grease (er, okay) and calls out parents on protecting kids from her and Lea Michele‘s exposed skin: “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.”
Again, the woman is correct. Parents, STFU. When we were 8 years old the most popular song around was George Michael‘s “I Want Your Sex.” And guess what – we’re fine. Did we go through a phase were we had 1290180 one night stands set to George Michael’s music*? Sure! But other than that – a-okay! This GQ cover is not going to ruin your kid’s life. Trust us – it’s probably made it a whole lot better.
*Neither of these things are true.
