One of the hottest shows on TV presently is the musical series, “Glee”. The casts has turned up the heat a bit too much because of the cast’s steamy spread on GQ magazine according to critics.
Parents television Council released a statement recently blowing up the magazine’s distinctive spread with cover stars for November and Gleeks Cory Monteith, Diana Agron and Lea Michele.
PTC President Tim Winter stated, “It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ‘Glee’ in this way. It borders on pedophilia. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment.”
The PTC also indict that the racy pictures disproportionately focus on the ladies’ sexuality while Monteith spends a lot of the shoot fully covered up in jock-chic looks.
Winter continued, “With a demonstrated market of eager fans for an entertaining, musical-themed program like ‘Glee,’ we wonder why the show’s creators feel the need for such graphic sexualization of women.”
“Interestingly, the photos of the male character showed him wearing a shirt, tie and vest.”
Jim Nelson, editor in chief of the publication responded in a statement, “The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy.”
“As often happens in Hollywood, these ‘kids’ are in their twenties. Cory Monteith’s almost 30! I think they’re old enough to do what they want.”
