Blind Items Revealed

January 27, 2014

This dance pop group made their name by opening for a very religious top 40 band. That is the reason the lead singer of the dance pop group swears he is straight. The various guys he was trying to tongue f**k last night at parties would disagree.

Tyler Glenn/Neon Trees (opened for The Killers)

So... once again the Enterns forgot about the outing rule. Nice.

Derek Harvey said...

Their music is awful. Nothing but Roxy Music in my stereo..

discoflux said...

He came out himself yesterday, caralw.

Derek Harvey said...

@caralw---I just read at Rollingstone he just came out..

Count Jerkula said...

Never heard of Neon Trees or the Killers. I'm guessing that means I win.

Seven of Eleven said...

Someone's riding high on the DM wave. You got to catch the wave when it comes, right?

The best line from the original BI:

ConfirmationStation said...
Hey Guys, asterisks here: Can confirm I am a "U" and a "C".

Derek Harvey said...

Count---you have heard the Killers. My dead grandma has heard the Killers...

Steampunk Jazz said...

So ...proximity is all you need?

Seven of Eleven said...

Also, this was Tara.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Good for him. NEXT!

TalksTooMuch said...

Um, if anyone thought that dude was straight I would be more concerned about them than some rocker getting his swerve on. And who cares! Yay for him for coming out, but I bet he still sounds as awesome as ever anyway and pronounces "fwiend" like Robyn

urban chaos said...

Uh oh, he* wants some more.. Uh oh! What are you waiting for??

Glad he finally came out!

caralw said...

Oh, I had no idea. Thanks.

Count Jerkula said...

@Derek: According to the top 4 results on YouTube, I never heard a song of theirs before 2 minutes ago, and I probably never will again.

TalksTooMuch said...

It's because everybody talks, everybody talks!

Cary Gaul said...

Heh

Marie Lexingdale said...

I love The Killers first couple of albums

Leekalicious said...

Straight is a spectrum!

FS said...

I saw Neon Trees open for Duran Duran in 2011 and he seemed pretty out to me that night. Well both nights since I saw them twice in one week. I wish I had paid better attention and made a stronger memory of it so I could give specifics but I do remember thinking that the pronouns in their songs were because no one else in the band was gay and its easier to sell records when a male singer says "her" in his songs. He has a pretty good live singing voice too, no autotune needed.

urban chaos said...

All you're giving me is fiction..;)

Some apply that to our beloved Enty but I'm still reading!

sandybrook said...

I never thought The Killers was a Christian rock band. However when I tell ppl Creed was they laugh.

Violet said...

Tongue f**king was known as French kissing when i was a youngster. Or am i thinking of something completely different?

urban chaos said...

Violet it's like the first time I heard STI in a commercial for condoms instead of STD... Darn kids

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Sandyboo, I didn't know you were a fan of Creed.

sandybrook said...

Oh I just love me some Scott Stapp :(

Harry Knuckles said...

Didn't know what tongue fucking a guy was either so I recklessly checked Urban Dictonary. Hang on to your hats:

1. To use the tongue to suck and enter the asshole of a partner before anal intercourse. The tongue is often repeatedly jabbed at the asshole to relax and open the ass ring.

2. To use the tongue to suck and enter the asshole of a partner after anal intercourse. Used as a method of extraction of semen and other fluids from the rectum. See felch.

I think though here in this blind tongue fucking is just french kissing. I hope.

TalksTooMuch said...

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT, HARRY???

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM

Violet said...

Gosh @Harry, let's all hope that it was just a bit of French kissing going on here. Bleach my brain is the phrase that comes to mind.

Sherry said...

I love Neon Trees. Couldn't care less about him being gay. Had no idea the Killers were very religious. Why do I think someone from that band committed suicide?

Ms. Good Intentions said...

Tonsil Tag!

Does tongue f**king refer to kissing or bjs?

sandybrook said...

Thank goodness I had no appetite for lunch today.

Sugar said...

I really hope he wasn't doing any of that at a party full of people. Unless of course I was there to gawk and stare!
I also had no idea The Killers was a religious band. Do they sneak God in their lyrics?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I'm with you, Sandybrook. Between the French kissing and your newly revealed Scott Stapp foot fetish, I'm swearing off food for a while. No judgment!

Harry Knuckles said...

Yeah, maybe I didn't need to go there.

sugarbread maker said...

The killers are from vegas. But I don't know neon tree from oak tree.

Caraface said...

Since when are The Killers super religious? Did I miss something?

sugarbread maker said...

Dustland . fairytale is my favorite. Look that up.

Marie Lexingdale said...

Not sure about the entire band, but Brandon Flowers in Mormon

smn1985 said...

The lead singer of The Killers is Mormon, I suppose that makes them "religious" but I would not classify their music as religious.

Marie Lexingdale said...

*is not in derrrr

WareCat said...

I'm w/ Jerk.
I heard of the names, but never heard their music.
Ur a brave man for going to YouTube.

I'm so happy I dnt listen to the radio.
I'll stick w/ my Rhapsody.

FS said...

The Killers are not a religious band, Lifehouse fits that description more than The Killers.

Tara said...

I'm confused by that GIF, Seven - is that good or bad. I'm just glad I cracked a damn blind! :D

Seven of Eleven said...

@Tara, it's good! It's from Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" video - this little scrapper comes out of nowhere and owns the battle. :D

The insanely awesome muppet fighting video that is Radioactive and also has Lou Diamond Phillips attacked by stuffed animals

Tara said...

Ah. Thanks! That video is ridiculous. I've never seen it before. PS - if anyone wants to connect on Tiwtter (do we allow that) I'm @TaraGiancaspro!

Seven of Eleven said...

@Tara, that video is like crack! Fun fact: the pink teddy bear girl is Annabelle from the Percy Jackson movies and is the newest (ha!) girl on New Girl (Alexandra Daddario).

(She's also on True Detective but I haven't cracked that one yet.)

Snootches said...

I respectfully disagree! I saw them live when they opened for 30 Seconds to Mars and I've been a fan since. He actually mentioned a song he wrote about being in love with his female roomie...inneresting

Lil P said...

I saw them too in Toronto. If that's the concert you are takking about ya the gold sparkle stretch leggings as I recall there was no doubt in my mind!!!

Jcool said...

You know the blind is BS when they try to say The Killers are a "very religious" band.

FS said...

I vaguely remember sparly pants but there was def a feather boa. But it wasnt what he wore or the way he performed it was something he said and I wish I could remember what it was. Argh.

keetz4 said...

di butler said...
