You know how you spend every waking moment (and most of your sleeping moments, too) trying to figure out how to get Glee hottie Darren Criss (Blaine) to go on a date with you? Well, try not to kill the messenger when we tell you that someone else has beaten you to the punch.
As part of mtvU’s Random Acts series, Darren Criss found out about Princeton junior Leora Friedman, who started a nonprofit called Music Is Medicine where celebrity musicians write songs for pediatric patients.
While Leora is being interviewed about her organization, she is taken completely by surprise when Darren pops by and introduces himself. To reward her for her hard work, Darren then asks her to be his date for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this August. Three words: Best. Reward. Ever.
“So mtvU has some pretty cool goodies for you — tickets to the VMAs, and it’d be cool if you could be my date,” Darren says. “We could go down the red carpet together.” Talk about an offer you can’t refuse! If this had happened to us, we would still be screaming for joy right now.
As if that weren’t enough — believe us, it’s enough — Darren also informs Leora that she’s getting a $1,000 grant to help grow Music Is Medicine.
“I think my heart stopped for a minute,” Leora tells the camera. “It was a little too much happiness going on.” Ya think?
Darren is rumored to be dating musician Mia Swier, but we have a feeling she’ll be okay with loaning Darren out for the night for a good cause.
If only we could borrow Darren for a night, too. Sigh.
