Lea Michele Under Fire for Another Sexy Mag Cover

Last year she took heat for posing in her panties in GQ, and now Lea Michele is drawing criticism for another racy photo shoot.

On the March cover of Cosmopolitan, the Glee star, 24, shows skin in a black top with a neckline plunging nearly to her belly button. And parents, whose children are fans of the Fox hit about a high school vocal club, are none to pleased with the pics, according to FoxNews.com.

"I think Lea Michele is sending the wrong message. She plays such a 'good girl' on Glee and a lot of kids look up to her persona. Then she poses very provocatively on two magazine covers which makes my almost-13-year-old son very confused and offended," New York mom Kim Trefcer told the conservative news site. "I find it frustrating as a parent who is trying to teach right from wrong to their kids and then you have things like this happen which is showing middle schoolers things like sex sells and all that goes along with that."

Michele drew additional ire by telling the women's mag that her "perfect night" would include the adult activities of drinking a glass of wine and skyping with boyfriend Theo Stockman, 26.

But Cosmopolitan's publisher, Hearst, stands by the magazine.

"We're thrilled to feature Lea Michele on the March cover of Cosmopolitan and think she looks stunning," a rep told Fox News in a statement. "Michele is a grown woman and Cosmopolitan is a magazine for adults."
