Outrage over Glee stars' racy photos
A racy photo shoot for men's magazine GQ featuring three Glee cast members has raised eyebrows, provoking terms such as "creepy" and "paedophilia".
Short skirts, high heels, scanty panties and provocative poses featuring lollipops dominate the November issue photoshoot featuring Lea Michele (Rachel), Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Cory Monteith (Finn) that plays with the high school setting of the Emmy-award winning television show. All three actors are in their 20s.
America's Parents Television Council watchdog group said the photos "border on paedophilia", given the adult male readership of GQ. "This is just the latest example of the overt sexualisation of young girls in entertainment," the PTC added.
Broadcaster Fox yesterday declined to comment on the PTC statement. But GQ editor in chief Jim Nelson said that the watchdog group "should learn to divide reality from fantasy".
