"Glee" star Lea Michele has hit a sour note with parents once again thanks to her latest magazine shoot.
Following last year's controversial GQ portfolio, which featured 24-year-old Michele in her underwear, the actress has now posed on the March cover of Cosmopolitan in a daring dress with a plunging neckline. And that has many moms upset, reports Fox News.
"She plays such a 'good girl' on 'Glee' and a lot of kids look up to her persona," said New York mom Kim Trefcer. "Then she poses very provocatively on two magazine covers which makes my almost-13-year-old son very confused and offended.”
Adds Mamarazzi Knows Best blogger Suzette Valle, "It's irresponsible to be using an adult who represents a minor dressed in provocative clothes. I think Cosmo is now taking advantage of the [ruckus] GQ caused with their 'Glee' cover and hoping to cash in on the press that got."
While Michele has not yet commented on the controversy, Cosmo is standing by their cover girl.
“We’re thrilled to feature Lea Michele on the March cover of Cosmopolitan magazine and think she looks stunning," says a rep. "Michele is a grown woman and Cosmopolitan is a magazine is for adults.”
