In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans...we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?
The apology came in part because Katie Couric said she was disgusted with the photo shoot, saying "These very adult photos of young women who perform in a family show just seem so un-'Glee'-like...these images don't really — in my humble opinion — fit the 'Glee' gestalt." Is Glee a family show? Does Katie Couric really watch Glee? There's kind of a lot of sex in there.
