Lea Michele debuted a ribcage tattoo that read, "If You Say So," at an event last month. She didn't say what the words meant. However, she opened up about the meaning behind the new ink in a new interview with Elle.
When chatting with the magazine for its December issue, Michele revealed the words were the title of a song that she recorded for Cory Monteith. The words were the final thing the late star said to her before he died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol back in July.
The song is set to be featured in the 27-year-old star's forthcoming debut album. In the interview, Michele said that she didn't plan to include the song in her album, whose title is still kept under the wraps. She added the song to the tracklist at the last minute.
"The album was done, and the label said, 'Do you want to add anything?' I was like, 'I might regret it if I don't,' " said the actress who plays Rachel Berry on "Glee". Michele pushed back her album's release date so she could include the track that was written by Australian singer/songwriter Sia Furler.
Michele also talked about "You're Mine", which was recorded before Monteith died. "It makes me so happy, this song," she continued. "It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think of him, I play this."
