Lea Michele Covers 'Nylon' Magazine September 2012

Lea Michele wears cat ears on the cover of Nylon magazine’s September 2012 issue, on newsstands August 28.

Here is what the 25-year-old Glee actress had to share with the mag:

On her days as a child actor: “I was a weird kid. I was eight years old saying I don’t want a day off. I’d like to work every day, please.’”

On her upcoming first solo album: “I want to make songs where girls can just roll down the windows of their car or dance around in their rooms in their underwear, like, I hate my ex-boyfriend! or I’m so in love! Because that’s what I want [to hear]–power-girl songs.”

On shock value: “I feel like I’m the type of person who likes to shock people a little bit, too. For example, when I was in Spring Awakening, every night I had to do this nude scene. I always loved to find the one person in the audience who I knew was going to be uncomfortable—who throughout the show was cringing in their seat—and when [co-star] Jonathan Groff would undo my top, I loved it! I was like, ‘Take that!! How uncomfortable are you right now? I want you to be uncomfortable!”

Ryan Murphy on Lea’s talent: “I always thought she was very original. Then I heard her sing and I knew there was nobody like her. She’s a very rare talent–she’s very specific and unusual and yet also familiar. She’s in that canon of the great singer-actresses—there’s not many of them.”

FYI: Lea is wearing a Marc by Marc Jacobs sweatshirt, Honeydew socks, and an ASOS headband on the cover.
