The 26-year-old is preparing to embark on his first solo tour, and is pulling back one of his well-tailored layers to reveal his innermost thoughts before hitting the road. (Standard protocol for everyone who comes through VH1 offices, natch.)

Bruno Mars Brings Back Darren Criss’ “Broccoli Head” Look On SNL, And We Still Love It

Darren Criss on Glee and Bruno Mars on SNL

Now that Klaine are splitsville on Glee (temporarily, we hope!) we’re looking forward to seeing what kind of transformations Kurt and Blaine go through while coping with their emotional distress. And hoping that means at some point Darren Criss will bring back the gel-less “Broccoli Head” look he sported at prom. We were reminded of what a nice change it is to see guys sport their natural curls on Saturday night, when Bruno Mars ditched his usual pompadour for a bushier ‘do as the host and musical guest on SNL. Maybe that was partly due to the fact that it made no sense to sculpt his hair ever so carefully just minutes before stuffing it into a wig. But we’d also like to think this is part of a new trend. Free your locks from their stiff product prison, gentlemen! Ring in the new era of curl!

We were going to credit Darren with this trend at first, but then we spotted a few Tumblrs dedicated to the adorable Mr. Mars (who made a pretty decent comedian this weekend, if you ask us). Turns out, the very week that Blaine was forced to go natural at prom, Bruno also sported curls at the Met Costume Gala. Spooky! (Not really.) Read more…

Britney Spears Learns “Gangnam Style” Vs. Glee‘s “Call Me Maybe”: Battle Of The Memes

Glee's Heather Morris, Psy teaches Britney Spears Gangnam Style

This is a rare moment in Internet trends — for me at least. Usually, by the time a meme goes mainstream, those of us who basically live online are sick of it. But somehow, I’m still not tired of seeing famous people dance to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style” dance is still as infectious as ever. But after this morning’s versions of both of those phenoms — courtesy of Ellen and Glee we think everyone else should give up. First, we have Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres learning “Gangnam Style” from the master himself:

Four things about this: Psy is the most charming man on Earth. Britney deserves the Good Sport prize for dancing in those shoes. Britney also makes the best “concentrating” face. But we think Ellen is actually maybe better at Gangnam Style than Britney.

And next we have the remaining New Directions on Glee, not lip-synching to “Call Me Maybe” as per the usual meme, but covering it:

Darren Criss Is The Most Stylish Robin Ever For Glee

Darren Criss As Robin On "Glee" Set

We love the number of sneak peeks Glee creator Ryan Murphy gives us of the show via his Twitter account. He recently gave us a look at a very gorgeous Kate Hudson filming her guest spot for the show. His latest tweet has given us an insight as of what to expect from the annual Halloween episode. At least, that’s what we think it is. Check out the photograph above of the lovely Darren Criss dressed up as Robin. The message along with the photograph read, “Who is that masked man keeping crime away from the halls of McKinley?” He should have added a “bam!” and a “kapow!” for good measure. What we’re loving most of all is that if you look closer, you’ll see that Darren’s also got a bow-tie around his collar! Considering they did an entire episode in homage to Rocky Horror Picture Show around Halloween in 2010, one would think this is the key to what they’re planning this year, right? We’d really like more details, but have a feeling this is all we’re going to get for some time. More importantly, if Darren is Robin, we really want to know who Batman is? Any guesses, Gleeks?

Teen Choice Awards’ Worst-Dressed: We Hate To Include Darren Criss, Demi Lovato And More

Worst styles at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards

The timing and mood of the Teen Choice Awards make the show a great place to see young Hollywood and music stars show off their relaxed, beachy best. Unfortunately, it seems like too many of these stars seem to think it’s a good time to give their stylists the day off and get a little TOO relaxed. A lot of the celebs you’ll see in the gallery below are not offensively dressed, necessarily. It’s just that we wish Selena Gomez, Nikki Reed, Darren Criss and the like would have taken bigger risks and had more fun with their outfits. Others, especially lesser known stars like Crystal Reed or frequent risk-takers like TCA co-hosts Kevin McHale and Demi Lovato, took their risks a little too far. We don’t want to punish you for trying, guys. It’s just that someone had to make this list.

Glee‘s Lea Michele Has To “Let Go” Of Her New York State Of Mind Next Season

When Finn put Rachel on the train to New York at the end of last season of Glee, we were both thrilled that she was going to live her dream and sad that it had to be at the cost of her relationship. For us at home, the New York move means Glee will be a whole new show in season four, but we wondered if this will feel like deja vu for actress Lea Michele, a New York native and Broadway star before she made the switch to TV.

“Rachel’s only been to New York once prior to being put on the train,” Michele told VH1 when we caught up with her at San Diego Comic-Con. “So I think I have to let go of everything I know about New York and try to see it through new eyes.”
