I don’t know the PR team, I mean, yes, I’m friendly with Ricky and I’ve spoken to Michael Samonte on several occasions but I don’t know him very well. Also I never speak to them about fandom stuff, so I can honestly say that the CrissColfer shippers have never come up in conversation with them.
I’m sure that they don’t give it much attention. They are professionals and they are adults, they don’t spend too much time worrying about what’s going on with fans.
And I may be out of line saying this, but I don’t think people who push their own agendas on Darren and his team and believe that he and his team are liars make very good fans, so I’m sure that they don’t give much thought to what’s happening in the fandom.
I think they know how to ignore the negative nonsense. Case in point, before he got on Glee, a friend of mine and I went out with Darren and his friends. She got drunk and insulted him- his music, his talent. I thought I was going to die. He smiled at her and said “Thanks very much for your opinion but I really don’t care what you think. Excuse me.” and walked away. Still smiling. Perfect gentleman. I imagine that he is the same way with negative criticism now too. And I’m sure his team reacts the same way.
I mean, we’ve all watched the GIF of this moment on repeat and I hate to ask you to take your eyes away from it, but here’s my Billboard thoughts of the week. — 'Opening Night' Tells Us To Never Ever Read The Comments.
I love that this episode was like some sort of meta delight — don’t read the comments! isn’t Twitter scary! oh but the stars of Glee are having a tweet along right now how about you join in! — as well as a meditation on the magic of NYC and who gets to partake in its magic. Will is sent from the city almost as soon as he arrives, Sue gets to enjoy the city but must leave it behind as she’s cast out by the people she previously tortured in Ohio, while the young heroes of Glee get to revel in the city. They triumph, they support each other, they gyrate in gay clubs.
Second Acts are tricky fuckers. You’ve got to pull something deep out of your gut to make it count, and especially to make up for a sagging middle. Glee is trying its damnedest to get there, and I commend it. Go strong, I believe in you Glee! You can do it!
HAHAHA! Jane knows what’s up.
