Lea Michele Covers ‘Teen Vogue’, Says Cory Monteith Inspired Her Debut Album

Lea Michele covers the March issue of Teen Vogue — looking soft and pretty with her long locks pulled into a loose bun. The Glee starlet talks to the magazine about her debut LP Louder, specifically how boyfriend Cory Monteith inspired her to pursue a music career before his untimely death.

“He would be like, ‘You’re going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?’” she reminisces. The actor would even give her feedback on studio sessions. “He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything,” Lea confides. “He loved ‘Battlefield’…[but] I would say ‘Burn with You’ was his favorite. He came into the studio that day.” See more pics from the budding diva’s photo shoot and a behind-the-scenes video after the jump.
