glee4.jpgThe cast of Fox's hit musical show "Glee" has taken to the provocative pages of GQ, dressed more like lingerie models than high school Glee club members (though the photos are a little reminiscent of Britney Spears's music video for her first single, "... Baby One More Time," which brought sexy to high school years ago in a more subtle yet big way). The question: Is this completely out of character for the popular "gleeks," or are they simply playing on their established sexuality? After all, "Glee" toys with sex all the time in dance routines, relationship storylines, including sex scenes and teen pregnancy, and in real life the actors are beyond their high school years. Still, if "Glee" does have a high school -- or even younger -- audience, do these images cross the line? How do you feel about these photos?
