‘Glee’ season 5: Darren Criss talks girlfriend Mia Swier, tour in radio interview

GleeMrs. Carter: Darren Criss has opened up about his personal life … albeit very briefly.

While it has been somewhat-known among some of the “Glee” star’s fans that Criss is currently dating writer / producer Mia Swier, Darren himself has never spoken out very much about it. Why? There are a number of reasons, from wanting to keep a certain part of his life private to just trying to spare her some of the fan reaction that could come just because the is the lucky girl that gets to snuggle up to Darren on those cold rainy nights. While Twitter has been a very good thing for opening up communication, it also exposes people to a good bit of hate since people feel free to act like keyboard cowboys and take shots at anyone and everyone that gets in their way.

As a means to help promote his concert in Toronto this week, Darren stopped by Kiss 92.5, where he actually addressed some of the BS that his girl has gone through just because she dates him:

“She’s been through a lot of stuff, but such is the life, I suppose. I didn’t know I was going to be on TV when we started dating.”

Perhaps the real revelation to some is just how long Criss and Swier have been together, being that it is only recently that some photos of the couple have surfaced. In reality, she has actually been there with him for this entire journey from a struggling young actor to a major TV star, and also has seen the sort of reaction that fans have to him being in a relationship.

In addition to talking about his personal life in the interview, Criss also discusses his love for music, how he brings many songs to “Glee’s” attention while working on the show, and also what some of his actual concerts are like.

Are you glad that Darren finally opened up about his girlfriend or are you taking to your Twitter account right now to write an angry message? If you want some possible “Glee” season 5 scoop coming in via Kevin McHale, all you have to do is click here.
