Lea Michele speaks out about Cory Monteith's death, upcoming 'Glee' tribute

For the first time since Cory Monteith’s untimely death in July, the fallen actor’s on- and off-screen girlfriend Lea Michele has addressed her loss in an interview with TV Week Australia.

“I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” Michele told the magazine. But even though Monteith’s death was devastating, Michele added that she never really considered quitting the show: “Everyone is asking, ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’ But the truth is, it’s no harder at work than it is in life — so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.” READ FULL STORY

Cory Monteith: Matthew Morrison dedicates cabaret show to 'Glee' costar

In keeping with the show-must-go-on spirit of his TV series, Glee star Matthew Morrison went ahead with his cabaret act, Up Close and Personal with Matthew Morrison, this afternoon following the death last night of his costar Cory Monteith. According to a source at the show, Morrison walked onstage at NYC’s 54 Below theater with his Glee piano player, Brad Ellis, who also accompanies him in his stage show, and said to the crowd, “Let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room. What do you do in this situation? We came here to do a show. You came here to see a show. And that’s what we’re going to do. We’re doing this in Cory’s honor.” The audience applauded, and Morrison invited his band onstage for a special rendition of “What I Did for Love,” a song performed by Lea Michele on the second season of Glee. Morrison has five additional shows scheduled through Wednesday.

Matthew Morrison takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Glee star Matthew Morrison went back to his Broadway roots for his new album, Where It All Began, and recorded with a 60-piece orchestra in the studio. So it only makes sense that he’s celebrating its release with a concert special, taped late last year, debuting June 1 on PBS (check local listings). “These are classic, well-worn songs that have been sung by the best vocalists we’ve ever had — Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis. What you try to do to reinvent them is take the bones of the song and weave your own framework around them. In my case, I’m a dancer as well,” he says. “I did a version of ‘On the Street Where You Live,’ which is typically a ballad, and I made it more of a swing beat. It’s got this really hard dance break. Obviously, you’re not gonna see the dance when you buy the album, but when I come out of the break [live], I’m kinda huffing and puffing and trying to finish out the song. But it’s exhilarating for me. I actually love performing that way.”

Below, Morrison takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test and reveals when he yells at the TV, the movie he watches every time he spots it on cable, the film he’s seen the most times in theaters, his most prized pop culture possession, something from his childhood he wishes he still had, and the recipient of the only fan letter he’s ever written.
