The Scoop: 9 Things You Never Knew About Darren Criss

Glee might be wrapping up in a few weeks, but there’ still plenty of Darren Criss to go around. 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.)

We pow-wowed with DC before his appearance on Big Morning Buzz Live this morning, hoping to glean some killer Klaine secrets and atypical backstage rituals. To find out what your chances are of being the object of the real Blaine Anderson’s affection, and what to expect from his upcoming live show, check out the scoop, below.

That’s a good start, but what about Darren’s hidden talent at kittyoke? You might want to be sitting down for this, friends.

If there are two things our BMBL host Carrie Keagan loves, it’s cats and whiskey. While there was no room for the latter this time around (we’re working here!) the former helped serenade her and her morning show friends during a thrilling round of Meow, That’s What I Call Music Kittyoke! in which memorable pop lyrics were replaced with purring in various pitches. The rag-tag group of performers were so impressive, Darren simply couldn’t resist joining in.

Keep an eye out for Darren’s tour this summer–selling out fast!–as well as the highly anticipated debut from the Kittyoke Choir.
