When Rachel Lea Michele first appeared on Glee, we knew she was going to be major. And if appearing in New Year’s Eve with Zac Efron later this year isn’t a big enough hint that she already is, then her latest gig sure says it all. Lea is Harper’s Bazaar September cover which trust us, is huge! And Lea dished to the mag all about those so untrue rumors about her being a diva, her “unconventional” look and of course, Glee. We even got to catch a behind-the-scenes look at her photoshoot with the mag.

On her physical appearance: “I’m five foot three. I don’t look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12. How many managers told me, ‘Get a nose job. You’re not pretty enough’? But I proved them wrong.”

On the diva rumors: “People have to remember this is all new for us. We’re all reasonably young, except for Cory, who’s old. (Uh, he’s 29 guys.) I’ve learned some lessons, but people are going to say what they want to say. I know who I am, and I’m not perfect.”

On her plans after she graduates from Glee next season: “I don’t stop. It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. I want to do Evita. I want to do Sweeney Todd with Chris Colfer. We want to do Wicked. I’ll be Elphaba and he wants to play ‘Guy-linda.’ I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”
