On his fans:
“What’s funny is that the moms always feel like they have to qualify everything. ‘I’m here for my daughter. Can I get a picture?’ You don’t have to apologize for liking Glee. My joke is the fans are either 16 or 60. What I wouldn’t give to have someone come back who wasn’t a mom or a teenager.”
On what it’s like getting so much attention so early in his career:
“Hollywood is a strange, strange thing. I feel like I’ve been invited to a very exclusive ball and I’m just trying to make nice with everybody and hope that if they kick me out they’ll at least give me a ride home.”
On the most surreal moment during his meteoric rise:
“I never thought I would meet Mariah Carey, but I really never thought I’d be introduced to her by Whitney Houston. She’s like, ‘Hey, baby, this is Mariah.’ I’m like, ‘I know. I’m Darren. I don’t know what I’m doing here.’”
LOL! You can read Darren’s entire interview in the February issue of Details magazine, which hits newsstands nationwide on January 17.
