Lea Michele's had a rough run of it these past few months for some pretty glaringly obvious reasons, but life goes on for the living, and so on she keeps on going. She's a trooper, basically, and she's not letting her personal tragedy get in the way of her work. In fact, it's being rumored that Lea Michele might be getting a Glee spinoff all her own.
It also appears that her work is allowing Michele to find ways to honor Cory Monteith — most recently with the revelation that the song "You're Mine" off her upcoming album is dedicated to him.
"The album was done, and the label said, 'Do you want to add anything?'" Michele told Elle in the interview accompanying her December cover spread. "I was like, 'I might regret it if I don't.'"
And so she did. "It makes me so happy, this song," she says. "It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this."
As for that rumored Glee spinoff? Nothing has been officially announced as of yet, but Glee executive producer Ryan Murphy has recently talked publicly about the change-ups Glee has been forced into because of Monteith's sudden death. This includes the announcement that the show will be ending next season — and the new rumor that said ending might spin off into a New York City-based show centering around Michele's Rachel Berry.
It's already been reported that Murphy and the rest of the creative team were contemplating moving Glee 's storylines to NYC full-time — a spinoff would allow for that, as well as for the option of bringing along show favorites (certainly more beloved than Rachel Berry by many) like Chris Colfer's Kurt Hummel, Darren Criss' Blaine Anderson, and Naya Rivera's Santana Lopez.
It's yet to be seen what will happen to Glee or its characters — it sounds like the spinoff is still in the pitching era of its development, and we've actually been exactly here with Glee before with no result, so things could go any which way at this point.
Regardless, we know we're gonna cry when "You're Mine" is released.
