That Lea Michele interview. When your Publicist has to step in and suddenly “cut the interview short”, that’s not a good sign. She’s had no issue speaking of the “relationship” and Cory before in relation to promoting her album, because the questions were pre-screened and she’s had time to practice/learn what she’s been told to say—don’t believe me? Read/Watch her recent interviews; she says the same thing every time.
However, when asked a question outside of the generic ones she’s been getting, she panicked. No, it wasn’t an “omg I’m too emotional" panic it was an "oh shit IDK how to lie on the spot" panic. Yet, people still want to buy that relationship was real.
Do we talk about that awkward ”I have no idea how to answer that fuck fuck where’s my pubicist” laugh. Because I felt it in my bones, and it was painful.
