Lea Michele's debut album, Louder, is coming out next week, and what better way to promote herself than stage a photo shoot with Terry Richardson? Michele's Glee girl gone bad streak continues in V magazine's music issue on stands this week with a very Terry Richardson spread. (This is the second time she's met with the photog, and this time is, believe it or not, possibly tamer.)
The official images haven't been released, but that didn't stop the budding pop starlet from sharing them across her various social-media platforms. Michele posted two collaged images on Twitter showing skin rules and doe eyes aren't that innocent. A true Michele fangirl and boy will also have been hip to the Instagram (after the jump) she posted showing two more shots from the shoot featuring open legs and plenty of popped hips. There is, however, no shortage of, um, Glee-ful smiles. It should go without saying the Michele looks great. Richardson's lens does, indeed, come with its fair share of eye-rolls and shaking heads, but Michele appears in control, tapping into a sultrier side than, say, her Teen Vogue shoot.
Watching Michele evolve and harness her own brand of sexuality is wonderful, but as The Gloss mentions, overt sexuality and Terry Richardson are about as surprising or thrilling as, say, paint drying. We'll be keeping our eye out for the full shoot come Thursday when the issue (you know, the one with our four favorite anti-pop pop stars) hits stands. (The Gloss)
