Darren Criss for Indie Magazine


Berikut adalah photoshoot dan hasil interview Darren Criss untuk majalah Indie Magazine


You said a word earlier that jumped out at me: private. How important is privacy to you?

I’ve always been a private person. I’m totally extroverted, but I’m selectively outgoing. Sometimes people think I don’t want to Tweet something because it’s an actor thing, or a Glee thing, but even if Twitter existed when I was in college, I never really liked codifying thoughts into the ether. Maybe it’s because I’m an Aquarian; I’m not into making these statements and announcements. I never felt the need to wear things publicly. So social media can be tough for me. I respect the uniform, I respect its power and its usage and, of course I am so grateful. If people are interested and want to know what I’m up to, I should be so lucky! The least I can do is give them an answer. But sometime it’s just not my style, I’m a little too old fashioned for it. I like phone calls. I like talking to people, I like being able to hear the cadence of someone’s voice. There’s such lack of context to things on the internet. 

I do owe it a lot of gratitude, because it got me where I am. I wouldn’t be talking to you if it wasn’t for the power of social media! But when you’re living such a public life, keeping some things to yourself is really important.


I read somewhere that you’re versed in a few different languages.

I know the basics for quite a few but I’m certainly not fluent. I love languages. I think it stems from my love of music and music theory, and the way sound works. I’ve always had a yen for tonality because I mimic. I like copying things. As an actor, you can’t actually be the person you’re portraying, so the end result is what you do through mimicry. It’s the law of the Romans. You know, the Romans basically just took everyone else’s ideas and made them their own. And then it became distinctly Roman.


Out of curiosity, what do you think about Tumblr?

Tumblr’s an amazing thing. Tumblr has really helped guys like me out, because the fans and supporters help us keep track of what we’re doing. The funny thing about things like Tumblr is…well, I think a lot of these kids think that we don’t have the internet! It’s this weird disconnection where fans forget that we can see everything they post. I also think a lot of kids don’t realize that nothing on the internet is private!

My brother - I’m quoting you, Chuck (he’s always like, ‘You never quote me in interviews!’) - recently said: “I feel like Tumblr is like a high school locker except everyone can see it, and it will never go away.” With high school lockers, we’d put up all the little things that are personal to you. At the end of the year it’s cleared out. You can be a different person, and you’re not beholden to what you’ve done. These kids put stuff on the internet that will be there FOREVER, and it’s available to everyone.


What plans do you have for the 

My brother said something so beautiful to me over Christmas. He’s a musician too, and we grew up on the same music, and we love the same music. He looked me dead in the eye and said, “Just promise me your record won’t smell like compromise.” And that hit me so hard. I was like, “Oh my god, I’ve been compromising everything!” (laughs) I would take a bullet for this man so hearing that really got me into high gear.

I have a real opportunity with this album: the goal for it is to make a statement. It would’ve been very easy for me two years ago to make a very simple pop record - not that there’s nothing wrong with that, there’s no high horse here. I could’ve gone in with some great writers, I wouldn’t have had to touch the writing or produce anything. I could’ve sang some huge songs, and had play on the radio, toured around…but that isn’t who I am. It’s not somebody who I want to be, it’s not somebody I could be for the rest of my life. Fortunately as an actor, people love it if they don’t really know your deal - you know, “he’s broody, he plays different parts!” But in music, it’s the exact opposite; in music, people turn the mirror around and go, “Who are you? What is your statement?” And it’s such an unfair question, because you’re like, “I don’t know!” I’m trying to figure it out, just like you.
