With just two days to go until Lea Michele‘s new album Places drops, the singer/actress sat down with E! News to chat about her new music, along with her love of fitness and her friendship with actress Emma Roberts
“I love working out,” Lea says on staying fit. “I work out to feel good but also so I can eat whatever I want. I want to be able to enjoy myself. I’m Italian. I like to eat big meals. I love red wine. And you know also when you’re traveling and stuff like that I like trying new restaurants and going on adventures, so I can’t limit myself.”
“I’m good in the sense that I’ve never eaten fast food. I do not drink soda. I don’t eat candy,” she says. “Like my house is healthy, so when I’m saying I’m eating a lot it’s like good food that’s worth it.”
As for her music, Lea reveals that her new album Places is a work where she has been able to open up and get personal:
“I feel like I’m in such an incredible place in my life right now, and there’s definitely those personal songs on the album and especially my concerts. I break down the songs and I tell everyone what they’re about, so that’s where I get really personal and that’s where I open up.”
“I try to keep my life as private as I can, but my music is where I really open up, and maybe we’ll Taylor Swift a few people left and right.”
During her interview, Lea also dished on her BFF Emma Roberts, whom she met while filming Scream Queens.
“It’s so fun,” Lea says about working with Emma. “The problem though is that Emma and I—we laugh—we have to like, I’ve done scenes where I have to pinch myself because we will laugh and we won’t be able to contain ourselves.”
“She’s the absolute best.”
Lea’s album Places will be available this Friday, April 28th!
