With taping for the fourth season of Glee quickly approaching, Lea Michele told us she plans on getting lots of rest in preparation. Not only will episodes include another Britney Spears tribute and her singing Barbra Streisand, one of her idols, we’ll also see in a ballet studio for the first time since she sang Total Eclipse of the Heart during season one. “I’m going to be doing a lot of ballet stuff,” the actress (in Oscar de la Renta) told us at the press conference for Valspar’s Hands for Habitat initiative in New York City (find out more here). So does this mean we’ll expect lots of Black Swan-inspired beauty? Not necessarily. “I’m going to have to have my bangs down, and that’s that only thing bad about having bangs,” she said. “I can’t wear my hair in a bun.” We’re sure she’ll get creative! While we wait for Glee‘s return, catch Michele at the Teen Choice Awards, Sunday at 8/7c on FOX.
