Lea Michele Had a Little Accident Before White House Performance

Apparently the best way to calm your nerves is with laughter, and peeing your pants.

Glee star Lea Michele told Chelsea Handler that she peed her pants before performing for President Obama. Michele asked her best friend Jonathan Groff to calm her nerves before performing, and he did so by making her laugh. Unfortunately, she laughed so hard, she peed her pants. Later in the night, Michele stole toilette paper from the White House becuase it had an official seal on it.

The performer has been also been keeping herself busy lately. Recently Michele came out with a new book entitled Brunette Ambition, and her new album Louder debuted in the Billboard’s top 5.
