We had the opportunity to interview Chris Colfer via e-mail.
Chris Colfer is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and a Golden Globe-winning actor. He plays Kurt Hummel on Glee. He was honored as a member of the TIME 100, Time magazine’s annual list of the one hundred most influential people in the world, and his books include Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns, and The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning.
My sweetie just decided that he needs to make chocolate peanut butter pie right now.
I married well.
When you see detailed Glee spoilers, ask yourself, “are they dramatic or comedic”.
We’re getting pretty antsy waiting for Season 6 here at Fashion of Glee, and with just a few days before filming, we thought it was time to drop the first (potential) find of the season! In celebration of National Bow Tie Day, we were treated to this sneaky BTS pic of Glee's resident bow tie addict's collection.
We’ve never seen Blaine wear this bow tie before; do you think we’ll see it this year?
As most of you probably know, someone somewhere dumped a deluge of purported nude photographs of a number of female celebrities online yesterday. The victims include the likes of Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer. But the focal point for this story has been Hunger Games/American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence, since the Oscar winning actress is perhaps the most famous actress on the planet right now. Without going into sordid details ( Justice and Grande have claimed their respective photos are fake, others have confirmed they are real), I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.
Outlets as mainstream as People and CNN are referring to the photo leak as a “scandal.” All due respect, it’s not a scandal. The actresses and musicians involved did nothing immoral or legally wrong by choosing to take nude pictures of themselves and put them on their personal cell phones. You may argue, without any intended malice, that it may be unwise in this day-and-age to put nude pictures of yourself on a cell phone which can be act and/or stolen. But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or sexual gratification.

Hello! I adored your tags on the spoilers. #Thisisridiculous #butsomehowIcanclearlyseethisisglee….Perfect tags!
The two things at the back of my mind that I actually haven’t talked about.
I’m actually really sad that Blaine gets kicked out of NYADA - I would have preferred he take time off to regroup or whatever (I mean, the dude was the guy chosen by their big benefactor and had a big showcase success - This is another example of about-face storytelling but I’ve accepted it to a great extent). But I imagine this is Glee being its usual extreme in situation and bringing Blaine to his lowest (off screen) so he can come back too…I just hope he does achieve a dream other than Kurt. Just as I hope Kurt achieves a dream other than Blaine.
Having said that, I have never understood either Glee’s but ESPECIALLY fandom’s dichotomy between Kurt (in particular) and his career and Kurt and his love life…With “success’ being defined by some kind of big career break (he’s actually doing pretty great career wise tbh). In my world, emotional success of all types is always what counts. And love - in all its forms (friendship, passion for what you do, romance) is the foundation of an important life. So you know, love success for Kurt and Blaine is a wonderful, fulfilling, happy thing. (Sorry that was a digression).
Oh gosh - the Hiram and Leroy thing is so heartbreaking! I think it is both a ‘Rachel really at rock bottom’ thing, as well as a bit of a foil for both the klaine story and the Glee story in general - everything, even the most solid things, are broken. (Definitely not its own story) But how sad!
Yes I absolutely think it’s real. As in, I believe Blaine and Dave will be genuinely dating and like each other. Nothing to do with Kurt.
In fact, as you point out, the spoilers already tell us that. Kurt comes to Lima to get Blaine back at least many months after they break up, and he can’t because Blaine is dating Dave. Which Blaine tells him. This is already something going on before Blaine has any idea that Kurt wants him back.
I actually like the start of this story - Blaine is honest, tells Kurt right away, and Kurt is realizing that he wants Blaine. A story with Blaine using Dave to make Kurt (who lives in NY and he broke up with months ago) jealous is just nonsensical pettiness that would be the opposite of character growth…
Of course this could all get complicated if Kurt really pursues Blaine…And anything really is possible.
But fortunately IMO, that’s not the story from what we know.
