Lea Michele (Rachel) released her second-ever music video on May 19 — this one for her upbeat tune “On My Way” — and although we love to see her happy and carefree frolicking in the desert with an adorable guy, some people were a bit shocked at just how sexy the sunny music video was. Even Lea admitted that her dad likely wouldn’t be watching this one!
Lea was a guest on New York radio station Z100 yesterday, May 21, and host Elvis Duran couldn’t get over how raunchy the video was. “She’s making out with some blonde guy,” he declared.
“There was no making out!” Lea corrected with a laugh, though she did agree that the video was sexy and revealing. “It’s the summer, and everybody’s wearing a little less clothing,” she reasoned. “It was a great day, I’ll be honest!”
It’s clear that Lea had a great time filming the video in the California desert earlier this year, and she was thrilled that it had only taken the vid about 24 hours to surpass 1 million views on YouTube. “I definitely think they’re watching for my ass,” she admitted with a hearty chuckle. For the record, as of 4 p.m. ET on May 22 the video had well over 1.5 million views.
After talking about the smokin’ video, the topic of conversation turned to the final season of Glee, which is expected to start shooting in the coming months and will air on FOX (likely with an abbreviated episode run) in early 2015.
“It’s been the most incredible experience of my entire life. That last day is going to be really hard. I may or may not chain myself to the set,” Lea said of Glee’s upcoming end. “But getting to work on this album this year and release it, and the book, has just gotten me super excited about everything that I plan on doing when Glee is over.”
And what are those plans exactly? Lea dishes, “I really want to tour my record. I really want to make a second album. I’m already working on my second book which is going to be the next Brunette Ambition. So I have a lot that I’m working on that I’m really looking forward to exploring.”
