Gotye Explains Glee Diss: I'm Dinky, Too!

by at . Comments

On second thought, Gotye doesn't really hate what Glee did to his beloved single, "Somebody That I Used to Know."

A few days after referring to that show's cover of the track as "dinky and wrong," Gotye clarified the meaning behind his comments to Los Angeles alt-rock station 98.7 .

"I thought it was really clever to transpose the song to two guys," the artist said. "It was a great idea."

So why did he refer to the version as dinky?

"This xylophone hook in my song - it's kind of dinky not just in the cover version but the original song," he said, being critical of himself and adding that his original words were turned into "the Glee cover I hated and Darren Criss is an asshole."

The track, of course, is everywhere in pop culture these days. Over the past few weeks, contestants on American Idol and a contestant on The Voice have covered "Somebody That I Used to Know."

What did you think of the Glee rendition?
