Lea Michele's new solo album, "Louder," was released this week and it is awesome. Between her immense talent and her strength in dealing with the loss of her boyfriend Cory Monteith last summer, we've become huge Michele fans. So imagine our surprise today when, between repeated listenings to her vocally-impressive tracks, we found out Lea Michele's real name isn't Lea Michele. Or rather, it is, but isn't her full name.
