Blind Item #8

This former A list rock group is now hanging on to B status after some bomb releases. Their frontman is really the only one who ever makes the news and it's generally about his religious beliefs. His church would kick him out in a second if they knew about his trips to various gay spas in West Hollywood. He thinks no one recognizes him.

Brandon Flowers/ The Killers?

Peggy Too said...

Beck?? He is a Scientologist and they are known gay bashers

AsileM said...

Brandon Flowers from The Killers. Always got a gay vibe from him. He is super dupper Mormam!

Robert said...

yeah, but Beck would really have to put on a few more pounds before I'd call him a group...

strawberrygirl said...

Also, Brandon Flowers is Mormon. He's always asked about his religion in interviews.

elan said...

lmao Robert. Brandon FTW.

Peggy Too said...

Oops. (blushing)

Seven of Eleven said...

I wouldn't call The Killers B status after the Battle Born tour, though.

LOL @ Robert!

Jon said...

I'm from West Hollywood, and there are no gay spas that I'm aware of, unless they're super secret. So this blind sounds bs to me.

elan said...

Jon, maybe no gay spas per se, but spas known to be frequented by gays perhaps? There must be some like that because Travolta has a well known history of frequenting them too.

Seachica said...

Jon - no spas in Gay Mecca WeHo?! I find that hard to believe

A quick google search for gay spa west Hollywood: http://gaytravel.about.com/od/gaynightlifegallerie1/ig/Gay-Bars---Western-U-S--/Melrose-Spa.htm

I so want Axl Rose to be this guy

torie grant said...

@Jon I guess your not gay then Jon. I suspect they're spas around the world where gay men frequent but they are not marketed as gay. And @Jon just because you don't know about them doesn't mean that they don't exist.

elan said...

I think the sticking point was use of the word 'spa'. From Seachica's URL, it seems the gay word for them is bathhouse.

I live in Utah and haves to deal with the homophobic Mormons, so I have secret hope that this is Brandon just because the Mormons are so proud to have a "cool" rock star be a Mormon and I'd like to see their judge mental faces fall in disappointment. Donny and Marie we're the hippest they had before him.

Tara said...

See, this is a juicy blind.

HannahBanana said...

I don't care what Brandon does....I still adore Hot Fuss...one of the best albums of the last decade IMHO.

hothotheat said...

@Sandybrook That would be awesome. He's got some serious mental sh!t, repressed gay would explain so much about him and his anger issues.

Kameon Quillen said...

@Ryder's I agree and also mis-read your last sentence thinking Donny and Marie were hipsters and that visual made me laugh out loud. Heehee!

Tina Mallette said...

Love the Killers. I agree hothotheat there is a lot of angst going on in that boy, makes for good music IMO

sifichick said...

I swear I read about Brandon coming out or someone was trying to out him. Might have been Perez Hilton. This was a couple years ago.

amanda_jf said...

Probably is him, he is a beautiful man after all. It's just a shame to feel the need to pretend to be something you're not and he has kids too...

di butler said...

I can see this as Flowers. My first thought was Ryan Tedder, but they've done ok the last few yrs.
