"Personally, I think it's not a big deal," Salling said. "I mean, they're 28 and 23 years-old ... Lea's 23 years old and she has every right to do that.

"C'mon we're not in high school, its kind of tongue-in-cheek that we're in high school," Salling told JoJo. “People are starving ... there's enough controversy in the world."

Salling's new album Pipe Dreams hits stores October 25. Glee airs Tuesday night at 8/7c on Fox.
