"Glee" star Lea Michele -- in what's being called her first TV interview since the death of fiance Cory Monteith in July -- will appear on "Ellen" Thursday. (She has a forthcoming album.)

Per the transcript: 

"I really feel like I'm still trying to figure out all of this. It's been only a few months, but my mom has experienced a lot of loss in her life and she told me at one point she said there is an empowerment that comes with grief at some point you find it. It's very hard but you will find it and I think at a certain point you can choose to sort of fall from this or you can choose to rise. And that’s what I'm just trying to do my best for him because I know that that's what he would have wanted and to just do my best and to you know, hopefully make something positive for where I go in the rest of my life."
