Darren’s voice sounds so fucking good on this song holy hell YES PLEASE DO, PLEASE SING US A SONG, SING US ALL THE SONGS YOU’RE THE PYANOMAN.
So Darren is one of the only castmembers who hasn’t said anything about Cory yet.
It’s a difficult position. On the one hand, people are going to judge him if he doesn’t say anything. On the other hand, fuck those people; they don’t know him and they didn’t know Cory. Darren was clearly grieving when he attended his movie premiere (and canceled all his publicity that week). His grief doesn’t belong to anybody but him and if he doesn’t want to share it, he doesn’t have to.
I thought I was making this clear but just in case:
I am not criticizing Darren Criss as a person or speculating on changes in his personality. I don’t know him.
My comments are from a purely functional standpoint. The change to Darren’s twitter is functionally worthless as a promotion and actively bad as public relations. It was not a smart move.
That’s all I’m saying.
There is a right way to do this.
It’s called ‘tweeting about the movie.’
Something like ‘Hey, go see my movie, Girl Most Likely, July 19th! (link to trailer)’
Seriously, that’s it. Don’t change your picture, don’t change your background, and for God’s sake don’t change your ‘about me.’ Nothing screams ‘sell-out’ like literally sacrificing a piece of your identity to make room for ads.
(Whether or not he’s actually selling out is irrelevant; this makes it look like he’s selling out. Image is everything, and this is bad image management.)
