“Glee” star Lea Michele has had a whirlwind year — getting through the tragedy of losing her boyfriend, Cory Monteith last summer as a result of a heroin and alcohol overdose.
The multiple Grammy and Emmy-nominee now has a new solo album, “Louder,” which was released today — a feat Michele said this morning on “Good Morning America” would never had been possible without the enduring support of her friends and family.

“I’m really very, very, very thankful for all the amazing people I have in my life,” Michele, 27, explained to George Stephanopoulos. “I know that sounds like something everyone says, but honestly, my friends and my family, they got me through this and really, really have been there for me and I couldn’t have done it without them.”

One of Michele’s fans on Twitter compared listening to the new album to reading the star’s diary, a window into her life.

“That’s really what I sought out to do when making this record,” she agreed. “Moving to Los Angeles from working on Broadway I was cast on ‘Glee’ within just a few weeks, so I really was introduced to the world as Rachel Berry.

“I wanted to take this opportunity in making this record to really let my fans know who I am, and I think the music should be personal,” she said of her much more introspective creative endeavor.
The songstress has quite a few projects keeping her busy, which is helping her take the ending of “Glee” after this coming season in stride.

“Just getting through one episode is very difficult, so to think about 33 from now, we have a lot still to do,” she said. However, when thinking of the very last day on set, Michele admits, “that day will be beyond, beyond, beyond emotional.”

Although her infamous character, Rachel Berry, is soon coming to an end, Michele’s fans will have plenty of opportunities to keep in touch with Michele.

She’s hoping to take the few weeks of down time she’ll have this coming summer to tour her new album, “Louder,” overseas to thank her worldwide fans. Then when she’s completely done with “Glee” in 2015, she’ll plan for a domestic tour.

Michele even has a new book coming out in May, “Brunette Ambition,” which she’s really proud of, considering she never thought of herself as a writer.

“I felt that I had I had a lot I wanted to say for my fans and for young girls who wanted to hear a little bit about my story,” she said. “So many of my fans want to know how I got to where I am today, and want to see the obstacles I had to cross to get to where I am.”

And as for any future plans to ever return to her original Broadway roots, Michele says there are just a few things she wants to explore first.
“I was so surprised with how much I fell in love with this recording process in making this album and I definitely want to make another one,” she explained. “So once I feel like I’ve scratched that itch completely, Broadway is definitely where my heart is.”

Yep, Glee Is Going to Comic-Con – Find Out Who Will Be There

Posted by Ali in Jun 13,2012 with Comments Off

TV Line has exclusively shared that Lea will be attending Comic Con with some of her Glee cast mates!

Reports of a Glee-less Comic-Con have been greatly exaggerated.

In a late development that is sure to have Gleeks frantically scouring the Interwebs for last-minute travel deals to San Diego, Glee is not only returning to Comic-Con next month but it will do so with one of its most star-studded panels in years.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera are confirmed to headline the panel, which is set to take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14 from 6 to 7 pm PST. (The 11th hour decision to bring Glee to the Con prevented the show from securing the ginormous Hall H, which is where the panel was held last year.)

Additionally, Glee co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk will be on hand to preview the show’s fourth season.

Oh, and yours truly will once again be moderating, so you can probably count on a healthy supply of spoilers.

“The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we’ve had such a great time returning there every summer,” says Falchuk. “This was the first year our cast has not gone out on tour, so Ryan and I thought we’d let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, so we couldn’t be happier that Glee is returning to the convention where we feel it all started.”

Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera and season one cowinner Samuel Larsen will all be on The Glee Project attendance sheet this season. Think of them as Glee guidance counselors for a Ryan Murphy summer school!

After the oh-so lovely Lea Michele kicks off the show’s season premiere “Individuality,” fans will get to see reigning champ Larsen show off his New Directions “booty camp” skills in the second episode “Dance-ability.”

Week three will feature the softer side of Monteith in “Vulnerability” which will center on the delicate topic of bullying and will also highlight each contestant’s emotional insecurities. And lastly, audiences should get excited because it appears that Ms. Rivera is the go-to-guide on all things sexy this season. In episode four, the sassy leading lady will help the contenders explore their emotions and physical chemistry with her lesson plan “Sexuality.”

The Glee Project premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. on Oxygen!
