Gotye is now calling Darren Criss an a**hole?!!
Oh, we jest! Well, he technically did… but not in a BAD way.
At an intimate radio session in El Lay yesterday, Gotye attempted to explain away his anti-GLEE remarks concerning the Darren Criss & Matt Bomer cover of his mega-hit, Somebody I Used To know.
If you are unaware of the contentious remarks, he essentially insulted the GLEE sound and seemed to call our beloved Darren Criss ‘dinky’.
BUT, apparently (as is so often the case) Gotye insists his remarks were taken out of context:
"This xylophone hook in my song — it's kind of dinky not just in the cover version but the original song. That [erroneously translates into] the Glee cover I hated and Darren Criss is an asshole."
Gotye went on to praise Matt & Darren’s version, stating:
"I thought it was really clever to transpose the song to two guys … It was a great idea."
We’re glad he took the time to clear that silly mess up! Our opinion of the Australian singer was starting to slip…
