Darren Criss Is in a Relationship With Jessica Szohr…But It’s Not What You Think! (VIDEO)
Last we checked, Darren Criss (Blaine) was very happy with his longtime girlfriend Mia Swier, only now it looks like the Glee cutie is dating former Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr (Vanessa). Say what?!
But before you get all bent out shape over this latest development, we should probably clarify that Darren and Jessica are just playing boyfriend and girlfriend in A Great Big World’s just-released music video for their track, “Already Home”. The video is about a couple (Jessica and Darren) who are trying to navigate the difficulties of a long-distance relationship. Darren’s character is in sunny L.A., while Jessica’s music video alter-ego resides in the concrete jungle known as New York City.
It’s clear that they love each other, but the distance is starting to take it’s toll as their characters are shown via a split-screen mirroring each other, but doing everything alone. Need an example? California Darren takes a solo walk on the beach, while Jess boards the hipster-ladden L train all by herself.
In an interesting twist, A Great Big World actually got some of their initial exposure thanks to Glee, as the FOX dramedy covered their song, “This is the New Year” in the Season 4 episode, “Naked.” Now, of course, their tune “Say Something” has made them incredibly popular and their first album released back in January debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200.
We won’t spoil the cute (but predictable) ending to the “Already Home” music video, but we highly recommend you check it out below!
Glee Season 5 airs Tuesday nights on FOX at 8 p.m. ET.
