A shirtless Darren Criss was spotted decorated in some face paint at this weekend's Coachella festival.
Criss has some reasons to be celebrating. He's on the cover of Billboard this week. He tells the magazine he's planning a solo album:
"We're working on it — we're really excited and it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I'm so thrilled that it's something that can happen because of "Glee," and like the Warblers album I hope I can do it justice and make it something that people can really enjoy."
In related news, Rolling Stone has some photos from the live performances at Coachella. And here's a cool piece about the lighting and stage designers for the main stage at the music festival.
