Sex sells: Glee gets a GQ makeover

By Aisling | October 22 2010 | 41 Comments

When GQ published its smokin hot pictures of the stars of Glee it was enough to make the world sit up and take notice. It was deliberately provocative and predictably enough caused a storm of outrage in those American organisations where Conservative is spelled with a capital C.

The Parents Television Council issued an angry statement, saying the spread “borders on pedophilia.”

Overreaction much? The actresses are in their twenties and were posing for GQ – hardly a kids comic book. This storm of outrage, protest and screams of “think of the children” happens every time a star who appeals to the young market actually er grows up. We’ve seen it with Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. (Everyone has long given up on Lindsey Lohan).

Diane Agron (Quinn) said “If your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry,” she wrote. “But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?”

But one other salient point has been made by those who hate the pictures. Why does yer man get to be fully clothed in all the pictures? Fair’s fair and all that, lets see a bit of equality here.

What’s your view? Love it or hate it?
