Cover Boy: Matthew Morrison for Attitude
Television’s sleaziest high school teacher gets the gay pinup treatment as Glee’s Matthew Morrison exposes his manscaping on the cover of Attitude magazine’s June issue.
Yet another example to the ladies that men’s magazines – even the gay ones (or probably especially the gay ones) – are just as likely to have ridiculous cover copy. “HELP! MY BOYFRIEND IS HOTTER THAN ME!” HIGH-larious. Silly queens.
Now, we realize that the internet’s first impulse is to cry out with one big “EW” every time he unbuttons his shirt, but that’s maybe a little unfair and perhaps we’re all confusing Matthew Morrison the performer with Will Schuester, the, at best, somewhat conflicted character he portrays. So when we see him doing the “my nipples need air” pose, we want to laugh and point and roll our eyes, but you know what? It’s a gay men’s magazine and he’s a male celebrity with nice tits. There was no way he was going to get away with NOT doing this pose on the cover. It would be like criticizing Megan Fox for wearing a bathing suit on the cover of a lad mag.
So yes, we’re inclined to be nice here. Consider the venue, after all. And it is a pretty hot shot. Maybe we should all stop assuming he’s a skeeze just because he plays one on TV.
“When I do my next film role I do want to be doing something…you know, give me a drug dealer doing coke off a chick’s ass.”
Oh for fuck’s sake. Never mind.
