Gotye Backtracks on Glee Diss, Calls Song Cover "Clever"
Gotye has altered his balance when it comes to dissing Glee‘s take on his chart-topping hit.
Just days after slamming Darren Criss and Matt Bomer‘s cover of “Somebody That we Used To Know” as “dinky and wrong,” a 31-year-old Australian indie rocker is praising their chronicle as “clever.”
At a private opening during Sayers Club in Hollywood Monday, Gotye referred to his comments about a Fox dramedy, saying, “I suspicion it was unequivocally crafty to unseat a strain to dual guys…it was a good idea,” according to a Hollywood Reporter.
That’s a outrageous jump from his prior comments to a Sunday Herald Sun, in that Gotye pronounced a Glee cover sounded “like it’s personification to we from a card box.”

According to Gotye, a media took his comments out of context.
“This xylophone offshoot in my strain — it’s kind of dinky not only in a cover chronicle though a strange song,” Gotye explained to a crowd. “That becomes the Glee cover we hated and Darren Criss is an a–hole.”
When he was initial asked about Glee‘s cover of a song, Gotye told a Sunday Mail, “They did such a true arrangement of a instrumentals though a vocals were that cocktail Glee style, ultra-dry, sounded flattering tuned and a stone has no genuine sense,” among other things.
