I am seeing comments about - if Glee goes there - the relevance of a story about ‘being out’ in show biz for Blaine in today’s world….
So Ellen Page just came out at the GLAAD awards about ummm…three weeks ago now. It was incredible. You could see her fear. And her relief. And she talked about the pressures of fame to be a little more like this and a little less like that.
Unless there has been some major seismic shift in the last three weeks…Yup. I think we have relevance.
As soon as Blaine was confirmed as the performer of “All Of Me,” I began to suspect they were going there, because, frankly, there’s no other reason he’d be singing a song THAT romantic (with those particular lyrics) in that timeframe unless he was trying to make a statement.
Kurt, of course, doesn’t need a statement of Blaine’s devotion. They’re not broken up or on a break, they’re not in a new relationship, and they’re not unclear about how they feel about each other. So why John Legend? Why now?
Sidenote: Given Blaine’s struggles since moving to NY, it’d actually make more sense for *Kurt* to be the one making the grand sweeping gesture here, but I digress.
My money is on June or her people asking Blaine to go back into the closet and, ultimately, getting a big musical EFF YOU in response.
