Lea Michele visited Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show to debut her new debut single Cannonball. The Glee actress also talked about her album Louder, her book Brunette Ambition, the success of Glee, and Cory Monteith.
On the Glee cast after the passing of Cory Monteith: “You know, a lot of people, really sort of you know were, concerned about us going back to work and wondering what that would be like. But at the end of the day, you know, we are a family and we did go through this together so to be there everyday and to have the support from each other is so important. And like I said, I’m just really grateful for them and what we do everyday we do in memory and we’re really proud of the work that we do for our fans and for our show. You know, what we created I don’t think anyone will every be able to do again with a show, that you know, came from such an interesting concept, you know Ryan Murphy is such a genius. I’m just really proud of it.”
On the release date of her album: “March 4th. It’s my favorite day of the year. I love March 4th. For me, it means so much. You march forth in life. You have to. It just seems so positive to me… I didn’t pick the day, I had a day in my mind but I got an email and they were like ‘Oh, it’s going to come out March 4th’ and I was like ‘That is so meant to be’. It so, it just feels so right to me, so that’s sort of been the theme of everything right now: to march forth with such strength, so that’s what I’m trying to do.”
On her new book Brunette Ambition: “I really felt like along the way over these past 5 years of living in Los Angeles, and then prior to that, I have picked up some really cool things from great beauty tips and fashion stuff as well as you know, I think my story is kind of interesting. Coming from theater, [and] always being told, ‘You’re too ethnic for television, you’re not right for this, you’re not right for that’ and then all of a sudden landing on a television show and now being where I am. It shows you, you’ve got to move just forward in life and not listen to the things that people say.”
