After seeing Glee’s Darren Criss’s photos in Out Magazine, we were ready to disguise ourselves as a 15-yead-old boy and sneak into a prep school for his character Blaine. That’s not that creepy, is it? Oh, it is? Eeep! Luckily for our fantasy lives, Glee creator Ryan Murphy reveals that Blaine is bisexual, a fact that will apparently throw a wrench into his budding relationship with Chris Colfer‘s Kurt. “It’s my job as showrunner to keep them apart as long as possible,” Ryan Murphy tells Out. “Blaine will openly question whether bisexuality is real. I think that some people will love that discussion and some will not love it.” Jeez, can’t our poor ascot-loving countertenor ever catch a break in the man-department? Ten bucks says he hooks up with Santana!
Unfortunately, Kurts the world over after going to be quietly singing “Teenage Dream” to themselves tonight after they find out that real-life Darren is a fan of the ladies. “I think it’s more empowering to everybody, including myself, if I’m articulate about identifying myself as a straight male playing a gay character,” Criss explains. “Ultimately, that’s more powerful for both communities.” A straight man playing a bisexual guy who’s comfortable showing off his manscaping in a gay men’s magazine? We think our minds are open enough for that. Sorry, Kurt!
