Dianna Agron GQ photos have been roundly panned. Of course, the Dianna Agron GQ photos aren’t the only ones under fire from the Glee photo shoot. Lea Michele is also barely dressed in the shoot, which has helped fuel the fire over these images. The Parents Television Council has compared the issue to pedophilia, mainly over how the two young female TV stars are sexualized. But the images of Agron are getting more attention, since she is the first participant in the shoot to comment on them.
While Michele and Cory Monteith have not offered any comments thus far, Agron has already responded on her blog. Although the GQ editor has remained defiant over the shoot and blasted the PTC for their choice of words, the Glee star has offered the closest thing to an apology.
Since the Dianna Agron GQ photos are causing such a stir, it made the actress apologize if they made anyone uncomfortable. However, although she offered words of apology, she mixed them in with a defense, saying that “in the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley and Gossip Girl,” their envelope pushing was not new.
She also apologized if any 8-year-old children got a hold of the issue – yet then questioned “how on earth did it get there?” This apology/defense has made Agron’s pictures top the buzz and searches over this story. In fact, it may have even taken some heat off of her co-star.
Although Agron’s GQ photos are revealing, and allegedly “racy,” Lea Michele is just as skimpily dressed. In fact, the cover image has Michele pressed up against Monteith in her underwear, while Agron still has a skirt on.
Since Michele is the bigger icon on Glee, and is sometimes accused of being a Rachel Berry-esq diva, she stood to get the most flak from her pictures. But since Agron spoke out first, her words and images are getting the most attention, while Michele has not said anything yet.
The only other person involved to comment is magazine Editor-In-Chief Jim Nelson, who was far from apologetic. He said that the PTC should “divide reality from fantasy” and pointed out that the youngsters are old enough to do what they want – particularly the nearly 30-year-old Monteith.
Still, it is the women who are getting the most attention from these pictures. Although the Agron photos may not be the worst example of sexualizing young girls, they have become a new landmark over this old debate. But while the PTC and Nelson have helped fuel the fire with their hysteria, Agron offered the most measured response to this story.
The fury over the GQ photos may wind down by Tuesday, when Agron and Michele play dress up again in Glee’s Rocky Horror Picture Show homage.
