Lea Michele's Glee role has had such an impact on music this year that Billboard is honouring her with a "triple threat" award.

The all-singing TV star is due to receive the honour at Billboard's annual Women In Music luncheon in New York City honouring the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie.

"We worked so hard over here at Glee and we put together these mini-movies every week that is filled with dancing and singing," said Lea in a phone interview. "It feels like such a nice sort of wonderful recognition."

But even though she's being honoured by a music publication, Lea has no plans to put out her own record just yet, like her co-star Matthew Morrison, who started working on an album this year.

"I really am taking my time with making an album... It will be somewhere in my future but right now we are so busy over here," said Lea during a break in her Glee schedule.

She also noted the success of numerous Glee soundtracks in the charts this year: "I feel like I've already sort of made albums."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
