Lea Michele Channels Teenage Dream For New Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

If you watch the video on mute, you’d swear it was Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” Seriously, it’s practically its twin.

Lea Michele is wise to draw inspiration from that clip given it was a chart-topper and the Glee actress’ debut single, “Cannonball,” failed to do any damage on the charts. Picking the Sia-penned “On My Way” is a wise follow-up. It’s one of the more pop radio-friendly tracks on her album.

Despite the lack of creativity for the “On My Way” visual, I have to say I love it. Michele looks absolutely stunning, shedding her good girl image. Girl gets her sexy on in revealing outfits while canoodling with a blond surfer-looking stud. Check out the Hannah Lux Davis-directed visual below which was shot in the desert in Palmdale, California.

Lea Michele Says You’re Mine On New Ballad

In: Donovan, Music

Surprise, it’s another ballad from Lea Michele. “You’re Mine” is the latest track from iTunes’ Countdown campaign promoting the release of Michele’s debut album Louder. She previously revealed this is her favorite song off the album.

“I listened to it the other day—it was the one song I had the most emotional reaction to, just because that’s my relationship with Cory.” – Lea Michele

There’s no denying the Glee actress has serious pipes, but given that “Cannonball” didn’t do as well as Lea’s people hoped, one would think her team would preview an uptempo track off her LP instead. Definitely a smarter strategy than releasing ballad after ballad. Does this mean the entire album is going to be slow-paced numbers? It’s sure looking that way.

Once again, Sia co-wrote this track. It’s not my favorite from the Aussie singer-songwriter. In fact, the chorus is a bit of a hot mess, however the melody during the verses is beautiful. Check it out below and see if you agree with my thoughts.

It appears one of Lea Michele’s goals in 2014 is to launch a full-out assault campaign to conquer all forms of media. In addition to releasing her debut album, Louder, she’s also giving birth to her first foray into the publishing world. Don’t forget she still has a season and a half left on Glee.

“Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business and she knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges. A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion, “Brunette Ambition” is about living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.” – Book Synopsis

The 27-year-old shared the cover of her book titled Brunette Ambition via Twitter. The book is part memoir, part how-to book and part style guide. She shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength and etc.. Do you think Brunette Ambition has the potential to be a New York Times best-selling title? Weigh in below.

Lea Michele Asks ‘What Is Love’ On New Track

In: Donovan, Movies

As we get closer to the release of Louder, Lea Michele is working overdrive to promote it. The 27-year-old entertainer debuts another preview off her debut album which premiered first on Entertainment Weekly.

What Is Love” follows previous releases “Louder,” “Battlefield,” and her current single “Cannonball.” It’s not my favorite out of the bunch. I can see why it’s included as one of several bonus tracks on the deluxe version available on iTunes. Definitely album filler. Give her new song a spin below.

Lea Michele Gets Louder On Title Track

In: Donovan, Music

Cannonball” has proven to be quite polarizing. Either people love it or find it utterly annoying. The title track off Lea Michele’s debut album, I feel, won’t face the same dilemma. “Louder” is uplifting pop at its best. It’s easy, breezy and surprisingly catchy. This will definitely fare better than “Cannonball.” The 27-year-old Glee actress premiered the track on Billboard earlier today.

“It’s a song that, no matter what, I can play in my car with the windows down,” Lea Michele tells Billboard. “But at the same time, I feel like it shows off my voice as a singer, which is really important to me, because that’s what I do. I want to make sure that every song on my record is fun and enjoyable, but also, you hear my voice in them.”

Louder” was written by Colin Munroe, Jaden Michaels and Anne Preven. They aren’t household names, but you certainly know their work, especially Preven. She was a former member of 90s Los Angeles band, Ednaswap. They originally recorded “Torn” before Natalie Imbruglia covered it and made it into a global smash. She’s also co-penned “Listen” (Beyonce) and tracks for Demi Lovato, Adam Lambert, Madonna and Katy Perry. Give “Louder” a listen below. I think you might like it.

Lea Michele just premiered the video for her debut single “Cannonball.” As expected, it’s Michele posturing, giving glamor poses and emoting her little heart out. All the while finding the light to perfectly showcase her. Tyra Banks would be proud. From the hand gesturing, hair grabbing and bottom lip quiver, it’s definitely Celine Dion-lite.

It’s pretty but a safe visual. Not that I was expecting a visual opus, but a slight narrative would’ve been nice. I suppose Lea singing in a dark derelict room with pianos falling to the ground and eventually breaking through to a well-light surrounding, is a metaphor for her rising above last year’s roller coaster year. Check out the clip below and weigh in afterward.

Lea Michele Teases Cannonball Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

After relaxing in Mexico with her G.B.F Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele is back to the daily grind. The 27-year-old entertainer uploaded a 15-second teaser on Instagram for her much-anticipated “Cannonball” music video.

Based on the short clip, expect the visual to include lots of glamor shots of the Glee actress and not have too much of a narrative. Unless of course, the hanging lightbulbs she’s weaving through is some sort of metaphor that just went over my head ;)

“Cannonball,” which is the first single off her Louder album due out on March 4, is slated to premiere on Thursday at 7:30 EST simultaneously on Entertainment Tonight and VEVO. Check out the preview below.

Lea Michele Debuts New Track ‘Battlefield’

In: Donovan, Music

It would appear that Lea Michele is a fan of one word titles based on her debut single “Cannonball” and followup “Battlefield.” Right? In actuality, the two singles along with the title track, “Louder,” are the only ones like this with Lea being much more verbose with the rest of the album.

The 27-year-old just unleashed another cut from her forthcoming debut LP. Just like “Cannonball,” this intimate ballad is co-penned by Sia Furler. The Aussie singer-songwriter must’ve made a killing in 2013. Her lyrics were practically everywhere. “Battlefield” chronicles a dissolving relationship with the honeymoon phase being long gone.

In an interview with MTV News earlier this month, the Glee actress revealed she wanted her album to not only deal head-on with the death of co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith, but also show the world the girl behind Rachel Berry. Give the track a listen below.

“What’s funny, I was talking to my mom and she’s like, ‘This is the opportunity for people to really get to see you, who you are in a personal way,’ ” Lea Michele told MTV News. “And I’m excited about that because I’ve played a character for so long, singing these cover songs, which has been so awesome, and now I’m kind of ready to let people know who Lea Michele really is.”
