In the face of parental criticism, Cosmopolitan is standing behind Lea Michele and its latest cover shot.
Now, editors have released a simple statement that reads: We're thrilled to feature Lea Michele on the March cover of Cosmopolitan magazine and think she looks stunning. Michele is a grown woman and Cosmopolitan is a magazine for adults.
That does pretty much sum it up. Michele is 24 years old, after all. Perhaps parents can use this as an opportunity to explain the differences between fictional characters and real life.
Do you think the spread is inappropriate?
