Lea Michele (Rachel) released her first solo album, Louder, back in March and her first book, Brunette Ambition is out today, May 20. But if you thought that the Glee actress was done writing and recording now that she’s got one album and book under her belt, then think again.
Yesterday, May 19, Lea headed over to Sirius XM to chat about her book on The Moms radio show with hosts Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein. Denise and Melissa were super impressed with all that Lea has accomplished at just 27, but as huge fans of hers they also wanted to know when she’d be dropping her next album.
“What do you mean? I just came out with one in March,” Lea reminded them with a laugh. “The album came out in March and the book is out tomorrow [May 20.] I have my second book deal, so I’ll be working on my second book starting in just a couple of weeks,” she went on to reveal. “It’ll be the next Brunette Ambition, but it will all be under the Brunette Ambition theme.”
Lea also dished about her plans for a second album, but she noted the importance of giving her first album all the love and attention it needs and deserves before heading off to make more music. “I’ll definitely work on a second record,” she revealed. “But it’s like if you had a baby — and look I don’t have children so I can’t really speak — but if you had one kid and you’re holding a newborn and someone were to say to you, ‘When are you going to have another kid?’, you look at them and you go, ‘Are you crazy?’”
“You have to give that first baby all the love and care and all of your attention to let it grow and then once I can tour this record and once I can give it all of the love and everything it deserves, then I’ll have another baby,” she continued, wrapping up the newborn analogy.
Lea also has Glee Season 6 to think about, not to mention those persistent rumors that she will star in a Ryan Murphy-directed Broadway revival of Funny Girl. In other words, it looks like she’ll be busy for a long time coming!
