The Glee star recently created her TikTok account which fans truly loved and appreciate. Oh, she sure knows how to get everyone’s attention on TikTok, so here’s what happened to Lea Michele.

Lea Michele on TikTok

Over the weekend, Michele took the TikTok application by storm with a single video. If you’ve been a fan for a long time, or have been updated with the rumors and memes, you’ll get the reference right away.

Just a little heads up for Broadway fans, Lea Michele contracted COVID-19 but thankfully, she’s now recovering from the virus. You may see her back on Funny Girl on September 20th!

  • Speaking of Funny Girl, Michele posted her first TikTok with a duet with Javi Rodriguez’s viral video about her performance on the opening night of the Broadway show. What an opener for the platform, really. You can check out her video below!

  • But of course, it didn’t stop there. The next day, Michele’s back with another video up on her account. And this time, it’s like we’re back to the good ol’ days. Lea phone-called a person pretending to talk while she lip-synced an audio clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
  • The person on the call who asked her “how was it?” is no other than her bestie, Jonathan Groff. She answers in a lip-synced manner, “It’s amazing” then proceeds to be emotional “but wait, can you talk for a sec?”

A rumor about Lea Michele saying she can’t read

Way back in 2017, this rumor and conspiracy theory spread out that Lea Michele can’t read. According to Know Your Meme, it is believed that the actress only learns her lines through audio memorization and words being fed to her during public appearances.

  • It started with the late Naya Rivera’s memoir, Sorry Not Sorry, where she mentioned that her Glee co-star, Lea Michele, refused to do improvised scenes with actor Tim Conway.
  • Podcast hosts (One More Thing) Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman were dissecting Rivera’s memoir way back, and let out a joke that maybe Lea can’t read.

  • It’s been five years since this rumor and meme came to life, and recently in a New York Times interview, Michele spoke about it and addressed it saying that it may be rooted in misogyny. She told the Times:

“I went to Glee every single day; I knew my lines every single day, and then there’s a rumor online that I can’t read or write? It’s sad. It really is. I think often if I were a man, a lot of this wouldn’t be the case.” – Lea Michele
