(Criss’s “Glee” boss Ryan Murphy is holding a $25,000 a head/$40,000 per couple dinner for President Obama after the fundraiser.)
The TV star replied, “:) So bummed I’ll have to miss my dental appointment to sing for The US President Wed night. thanx @Pink for messin that up!!”
Oh, Darren Criss you rascal you. What do you really want to say?: “... But in all seriousness @Pink- what an honor! & while I’m at it, thanks for letting me sing your songs on glee :) hope we did ya justice!”
