Lea Michele Feels Cory Monteith's Presence, Had Plans to Have Kids & Grow Old Together

Lea Michele is ultra-chic on the cover of Glamour UK magazine’s April 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Louder singer had to share with the mag:

On losing Cory Monteith: “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 feeling Cory in her presence: “Every day when I go running, I feel like he’s pushing me to run harder. I’m just so glad we’re in a new year. I feel physically and emotionally very strong. You don’t know how strong you are until you have to be. I lost my grandfather a couple of years ago and I always feel that he’s watching over me. I feel the exact same way about Cory. Every day when I go running, I feel like he’s pushing me to run harder.”

On her future 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.”

Good lord, Jared. How much are they paying you to post ad-nauseum about this mediocre milkmaid?

# 2

Weird interview… I just feel like she’s using her loss to get maximum publicity. Not a single word about her projects, her show, he music…

# 3

I’m sorry but this is hilarious. I will give her credit at playing the grieving girlfriend excellent. Next time I’d like to her see say all this stuff in a video interview aka on the spot. Magazine interviews get messed around with so much.

# 4

Milk it, Lea! Milk it!

I saw so many exclusive news from different articles in these few months and all of them are about CORY and not the album itself.

I know the entertainment world is a despicable place; but good Lord, Lea. There’s a line.
Are you really incapable to make money using your TALENT and not the name of the dead boyfriend? (heroin overdose, I might add. How happy were you Lea when he was shooting drugs in his vein?)

# 5

Who wouldn’t use it to get maximum publicity? Since his death I’ve never see her grace so many magazine covers. And every song from her album was Cory ‘ s favorite or about him – even though she didn’t write any of songs. Her, nor her people are stupid. Those Glee tards eat anything up.

# 6

She is getting on my nerves with this constant milking of Cory’s death. And before the diehard Lea fans come running to defend her with “well, she can’t help it if people keep asking her about Cory!” The publicist lays the ground rules on the interview and what can or cannot be asked and what to focus on so she clearly wanted to talk about Cory, so please, don’t use that defense…

# 7

I’m so sick of her. Glee was SO 3 years ago…

# 8

So, they were together for 1 year and half and he relapsed (after 10 years of sobriety) during the relationship. And yet Lea is still saying it was one of her happiest periods ever? I…… What the f-?
Talking about kids and future with a struggling addict is out of the world! Who believe this bullshit?

# 9

@Ash: Thank you! That was dead on.

Trying to pretend he was a straight man, sent him spiraling out of control.
Why not let his soul rest in peace, he had no peace in life,with this fame ho.

You people are sick. I’d like to see what you would do if you lost the love of your life and people asked you questions about it. Now put that under a
Giant microscope and times it by a thousand! I think she’s amazingly brave and stayed quiet for long enough. She’s ready to
Talk about it. She’s being asked the questions. This is part of
The grieving process. And she’s incredibly strong while doing so. I was never a big fan of Glee (just never got into it) or really knew much about her. But I have a new found respect
For her. She’s a staple for people that life does go on even after something tragic that flips your world upside down. I think she’s a great role model to girls of any age. Not even a role model for losing a loved one but getting yourself to a happy and healthy place after being in the deepest dark low. It’s
Possible to find peace again you just have to want it. Compared to other young celebrities in the media right now, I can’t believe people can even judge or criticize her. You people need a hobby.


She could always blacklist questions if the Cory talk is bothering her but since It’s good for the album why not?
People are weirdly attracted by the concept of a death celeb.
And she’s using the sympathy card.
I hope she sleeps well. Lea and the bosses of Columbia Records.

@Meme: I agree. She’s just answering the questions with honesty, I don’t understand why that’s a problem. People just like to bully others in order to make themselves feel good. She is confident in her own skin, had someone who loved her for who she is, talented, and has been very successful. They probably can’t say the same. I’m not a fan of hers nor do I know much about her, but she exudes grace and courage and I respect that.

Would loved to have heard Corey’s point of view on all this

How are we sure he wanted all of the stuff she is yapping about?

But obviously we can’t

What’s up with the Arianna Grande hair? Lea is probably one of the most unlikeable humans.

@Elly: Talking about a passed loved one is very therapeutic and an important part in greif and dealing with those situations. No she doesn’t have to talk about him, but it’s good for her and clearly not bothersome. And there are actual fans of theirs who want to know how she’s doing and how she’s handling it. You may not, but there are some people who care what she has to say and find her inspiring for many reasons, one of those being able to overcome such a public, critiqued, and looked down upon loss.

Grow up.

Is it too late to dig him and bring him on tour?

What a Phoney @ 02/28/2014 at 2:47 pm

I’m under “the spell” of the drive-thru dude right now who forgot to give me my fries.

Cory Pushes Me @ 02/28/2014 at 2:53 pm

……If Lea could only take up rock climbing

Love The Shoes @ 02/28/2014 at 3:18 pm

Sorry, but I feel like she’s milking his death for all it’s worth and for as long as she can. Michelle Williams quiet dignity following Heath Ledger’s death apparently is something Lea Michele is unfamiliar with.

Love The Shoes @ 02/28/2014 at 3:23 pm

@Meme: And you need to realize she DOESN’T have to answer one damn thing either. You didn’t see or hear Michelle Williams feeling some “obligation” to speak about Heath Ledger did you? Get a clue; Lea Michele is schilling this for all it’s worth and that should be obvious to even the most obtuse of amongst us.

I was criticized for saying she’s a fame w*ore and there it is again, talking about Cory. She’s getting pathetic. Just leave him to rest in peace, for the love of God!

@Cory Pushes Me: Roflmao! Post Of The Day! Absolutely hysterical!


“Talking about a passed loved one is very therapeutic and an important part in greif and dealing with those situations” In public?

“And there are actual fans of theirs who want to know how she’s doing and how she’s handling it” Something like 4 milions of fans. Public grieving.

Totally normal.
