Is Glee a sexist show?
Numerous Glee fans, or Gleeks, have been complaining about the seemingly “lack of PDA” between same-sex couples on the show. Finally, Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the show, answers the speculations about the Fox hit series being a rather sexist TV production. Colfer shares:
That surprises me because I always feel like Darren’s mouth is on mine. Always. I feel like that is just another day at work. Actually I don’t think I’ve noticed. I feel like people get mad at that, but I mean you really have to look at how high schools are these days.
Gay couples aren’t as comfortable showing PDA, especially in the middle of Ohio. I feel like when people get in uproar about this, it’s really kind of unfair because the show is trying to portray it as realistically as possible.
Darren Criss, who plays Blaine in the show and is Kurt’s current love, shares:
I always want them together. The way I see it, you’ve established that you’re the couple. If things shake up I’m all about it, but as long as they know they have to get back together in the end, like all good love stories, than I’m cool with it.
There you have it, Gleeks! Now you can stop worrying about PDA and start focusing on the new twists of season four!
Looks like Darren Criss has found himself a real-life Kurt Hummel in…Joe Jonas?
Photos of Darren Criss and Joe Jonas holding hands on different occasions have been circulating around the Internet since last week. Some of the photos were even bedazzled with cute little hearts. So, are the two (boy) singers dating? Well, don’t start waving your rainbow flags yet…
The photos were Photoshopped. You heard that right. The photos were apparently faked by someone who, judging by the quality of the scandalous photos, must have some serious Photoshopping skills. Not that it’s wrong for two men to hold hands, but that the rumors are simply baseless because Jonas and Criss happen to be both straight.
Just in case there’s any doubt about the photos’ fakeness, a group of photo professionals found the original photos used to make the fake ones. One of the photos was one of Jonas with his then-girlfriend, Ashley Green. In the Photoshopped version, Green was cropped out and replaced with Criss.
When Darren first got the role of Blaine, a gay teen on Glee, he also responded to rumors that he, too, is gay. He said:
“I define myself as a straight male.”
Jonas also told a magazine once that he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with being gay, but, “I’m not.”
Perhaps this rumor can be Joe’s gate into Glee land.
