In a sit down with E! News, the country crooner said, "Photo shoots are always interesting for me, because I'm just completely out of my element. So, they're like, 'Here's a bikini,' and I'm naturally just like, 'Oh, god! What did I get myself into?' But great photographer, love the girls, love the photos, we shot all day...we had a really good time."
When asked about the controversy surrounded by the GQ spread, Lucy said with a laugh, "I heard Troian said something...I don't know, I just stay out of all of that."
"I think it is pretty common," she continued, talking about the use of Photoshop. "It's good that people know that that is normal. I mean, people meet me in person, they know what I look like. As long as people know that that's not real ... It's GQ. We don't look that pin-up-y."
Troian meanwhile, shot back at all the hubbub surrounding their altered images that their images were altered, writing on Instagram, "So by now you have seen many a shot from #GQ and many people have said that we were photoshopped... OF COURSE WE WERE! That's a very specific type of photo shoot. And looking very blown out and perfected was obviously what they were looking for. Great. Cool. As long as we acknowledge how it was achieved so we know it's not real."
GQ controversy aside, Lucy also tackled the issue of relationships, telling Sheknows.com, "Dating issues? Oh, for days! But everything happens for a reason, right?"
The actress has recently been linked to country singer Joel Crouse, whom she was spotted canoodling with courtside at a recent Lakers game in April, and in and around Los Angeles since then.
