Watch: Darren Criss Makes Your Yuletide Gay


Darren Criss recently performed "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" for MTV's The Seven, and did a whole interview in song for Rolling Stone.

Watch both clips, AFTER THE JUMP...

The RS interview gets a bit cloying halfway through, but starts out sweet:

  1. He vacillates between sleep waking and having too many red bulls. One of the gayest straight guys I've ever seen. Love the saddle shoes.

  3. He's going bald! You can see it when his scalp is shown in close up.

  4. He readily admits that he is probably more 'girly' acting in real life than the character Blaine he plays in TV. He has said in interviews that sometimes he feels a little stiff on set. He credits basically being raised by the gay community in SF when he was in community theater growing up... being able to express yourself and not worrying how people see you.

  5. His interview personality reminds me of Michael Buble but without the polish of all the years of performing.

  6. He could not be more adorable.

  7. His "guest star" thing is cute and all, but really. Deadline said weeks ago he's close to signing for a regular spot, starting in S3. No Glee guest star has ever blown up this big; I think all that stands between him and a contract is crossing the t's and dotting the i's.

    Anyway, adorable performance as usual.

  8. A little stiff on set?

  9. I know what I want for Xmas - Darren Criss to order all countries to stop geo-blocking content to their foreign users!

  11. Jim Green -

    I take it you are not going bald and are therefore superior to those who are.

  12. he's the best thing to happen to Glee since the Madonna episode. Great casting!

  13. He definitely belongs on the show and he's just dreamy and yes, I do want to put my hands on his skin tight jeans

  14. He's adorable, he's talented, and he's NOT gay???!!

  17. Darren Criss is awesome! He brightens the day :-)

  18. Oh my. I just adore Criss but didn't really think he was going to end up being a crush. He got me!

  19. The singing Jesse Bradford. Love. Heart it a lot.

  20. I have to say this one thing... he is amazing at self promotion. I don't mean that in a bad way -- I just think there's a lot of really talented people on Glee, but none of them have blown up like this, this quickly. Talent + knowing how to display it in a way that attracts a legit fanbase = longtime success. And I'm sure he'll deserve it.

    As a bonus, he's the only Glee 'star' who I've actually heard on the radio, too.

  21. all of the above! he's great on the keyboards, and perhaps a visit is needed for a few polishing lessons with a vocal coach so he doesn't "strain" himself on the old standards, Christmas or not.

    ...excuse the drool....

  22. In the third video Darren is
    wearing a shirt bearing the
    "mark of the banking beast",
    Chase. I would think he would
    be the kind of person that would
    be mindful of what kind of messages
    he would be sending when he chooses
    to wear something with a message.
    Chase is part of the 4 horsemen of
    the financial apocalypse:
    Chase, BofAmerica, Citi(bank,group,corp)
    and any Swiss bank of your choice.
    Otherwise, he's terrific.
