"Glee" star Heather Morris - better known as Brittany S. Pearce - is featured in a new video for Esquire Magazine. The video, available online now, showcases Morris dancing to some of the "50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To."
Morris is known for her incredible dancing talent, but some parents are sure to be outraged by Morris' sexy dance moves - after all, she's on a show that's marketed toward teens.
However, Morris isn't the only "Glee" star to draw controversy. In fact, it seems like everything the McKinley High cast does is scrutinized.
Lea Michele, Diana Agron and GQ
Breakout "Glee" stars Lea Michele and Diana Agron were intensely criticized in 2010 for appearing scantily-clad for a spread in GQ magazine. The photos, taken by famed photographer Terry Richardson, were criticized by parents for being too racy and were even likened to child pornography, even though Michelle and Agron are both in their twenties.
"It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on 'Glee' in this way. It borders on pedophilia," the Parents Television Council said in a statement. "By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions on the show's direction. And it isn't good for families."
Agron responded by apologizing for the outcry.
"I am not a representative of the three of us, the show, or Fox, only myself," Agron said. "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."
But GQ wasn't so apologetic.
"The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy," said Jim Nelson, editor-in-chief of GQ. "As often happens in Hollywood, these 'kids' are in their twenties. Cory Montieth's almost 30! I think they're old enough to do what they want."
Lea Michele and Cosmopolitan
Michele was again criticized for a cover photo, this time for her March 2011 cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine. The cover featured Michele in a plunging top that showed off her cleavage, though nothing really scandalous was revealed.
Oh, and people were upset because the cover proclaimed to show off Michele's "naughty secrets."
Cosmopolitanresponded by saying the same thing as GQ.
"Michele is a grown woman and Cosmopolitan is a magazine for adults."
Naya Rivera and the Case of the Car
Actress Naya Rivera plays bad-girl Santana on the hit musical show, and it appears that she's not that different from her "Glee" alter-ego. Rumors struck last August that Rivera trashed the car of her "Glee" co-star Mark Salling after he reportedly cheated on her over that summer.
"She looked like she was having a party, cheering wildly each time she and her friend threw something on the car," a source told RadarOnline at the time. "She and her friend were going crazy when they were throwing things at his car."
"She went into the store and bought the eggs, bird seed, and dog food, and then the girls went out to the street and started throwing things on the car. They celebrated by yelling and throwing their hands in the air after they threw things at the car," the source continued.
Both Salling and Rivera laughed off the rumors. However, Rivera allegedly did other wild things in her past. She reportedly worked as a Hooter's girl and was reportedly fired for stealing from another job, Abercrombie & Fitch.
"Glee" Extra and the Secret
Another controversy recently happened with "Glee," but it wasn't thanks to the main cast. An extra on the show, Nicole Crowther, reportedly revealed the McKinley High prom king and queen name on Twitter - and she ruined it for all of the fans!
"Glee" co-creator Brad Falchuk was pretty upset when he found out - and he blasted Crowther on Twitter.
"Hope you're qualified to do something besides work in entertainment. Who are you to spoil something talented people have spent months to create?" Falchuk tweeted earlier this week.
"I'm truly sorry. I was being completely thoughtless and made a horrible mistake. I'm deeply & incredibly sorry Brad."
Now there's talk that they might re-shoot the scene so fans are still surprised - though nothing is confirmed.
