Lea Michele looking gorgeous on the March issue of Glamour UK. Inside the mag, the Glee darling opens up about late boyfriend Cory Monteith and her upcoming solo album.
On life after Cory’s passing: “I immediately started to try and process everything. I didn’t drown myself in anything toxic. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be. At the start, it’s hard because you’re so physically and mentally shocked and damaged, but after a while you get tired of physically feeling so horrendous, so I started doing yoga, which really helped. Then gradually your mind catches up with your body. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be. There’s something sad about that but also something good, because I will take that blank canvas and make something beautiful out of it.”
On her future plans with Cory: “I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I’m thankful for that. We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin. We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were done. We were it. When you’re at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything.””
On not being ready to date: “I’ve only ever had serious relationships so it’s an adjustment putting myself back into a place of being alone. And I was under a Cory Monteith spell…it’ll take time to readjust my mind and I’m really not wanting to do that right now. I feel like it’s so important to make sure that I’m 100% OK before I can get into a relationship. But people have to understand that I can’t be alone forever. Cory wouldn’t want that.”

Lea Michele looking ethereal on the March cover of Teen Vogue. Inside the mag, the Glee darling opens up about her late boyfriend Cory Monteith, her upcoming album “Louder” and more during the interview by her best friend Jonathan Groff.
Here’s what Lea had to say:
On finding strength after Cory’s passing: “I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now. There’s just something about knowing he’s watching everything I’m doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him. I also have a safety net below me—if I fall or if it’s too much, my friends and family will be there to catch me.
On her favorite song and Cory’s input on the album: “My favorite song is, 100 percent, “You’re Mine.” I listened to it the other day—it was the one song I had the most emotional reaction to, just because that’s my relationship with Cory… 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.”
On her debut solo 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.”

Earlier in the day, it was announced during the 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour that Glee will be focusing exclusively on New York storylines for the second half of the season. Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said. “Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York… There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it. The way it’s going to dovetail next season, we’ll see some familiar faces coming around in some capacity. But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”
Characters making the move to the Big Apple weren’t specified. Who do you think should head to NYC and are you looking forward to the change?
