For some reason, there have been a lot of celebrity bikini pics floating through cyberspace in 2014, from the likes of Demi Moore and Charlize Theron, just to name two, and now "Glee" star Lea Michelle has tweeted one of her own.

Apparently, the 27-year old is spending time in Mexico and she tweeted a pretty revealing photo that shows her grabbing a palm tree with one hand and playing in her hair with the other. But it's not the palm tree that most people will notice, as the true star of the photo is a tiny bikini that doesn't leave much to the imagination.

It's been a tough 2013 for Michelle, after her boyfriend and fellow "Glee" cast member Cory Monteith passed away from a heroin and alcohol overdose. "It's certainly been a pretty rough year," she told Ellen DeGeneres last month. "But I've been surrounded by such great people, such great family."

She also said her mother in particular has been a huge help for her. "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,' " added Michelle.

In addition, the Bronx native said she believes Monteith would want her to live her life, and it's possible the trip to Mexico was one of her first step towards doing that, as she tweeted the following message along with the photo: "What an amazing week in Mexico," she wrote. "New day. New Year."

Just last week, Michelle released her second single from her up and coming album "Louder." The song is called "Battlefield" and its a cut about lost love and is backed by a melodic acoustic piano riff. "Louder" will be released in March of this year.
