Darren Criss Covers 'Prestige' January 2011

Darren Criss rocks out in an Emporio Armani suit and Ben Sherman dress shirt on the cover of Prestige‘s January issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old Glee star and singer shared with the mag’s Oliver Singer:

On fame: “The one exciting thing about celebrity is that you get to be in a position to do great things for the world. A lot of our favorite celebrities have given back to the community, and I hope I can do the same.”

On his childhood dreams: “I’ve always wanted to do theatre. I wanted to be a musician and a composer, have a band … everything. I’ve always wanted to be performing and creating. But I never wanted to be a star or a celebrity type.”

On having reservations playing a gay character, Blaine, on Glee: “That wasn’t even something on my radar. For me, I was reading a really great character and I was excited about it. I feel comfortable with my sexuality, and I defy anyone who tries to weird me out with accusations or anything like that. Blaine’s sexuality didn’t even cross my mind as something that would be an issue.”
