I was all about Brandon Flowers earlier this year. Like crushing hard, google alerting every day. But I also told you I’m fickle. My obsessions have to be fed. My obsessions can also be killed really quickly. Like with an overuse of exclamation points. Or dirty fingernails. So The Killers also participated last night in Jimmy Kimmel’s RED fundraiser episode. Full Story
In the heat of an obsession, there’s nothing more satisfying than when your google alert goes off in the morning. Brandon Flowers was on BBC Breakfast today. He played a show in Leeds last night, then got up at 5am to make it to the interview, and they asked him about that, about looking so fresh when he had to sleep on the bus…which, basically, was their segue into asking him about his lifestyle – being a rock star and a family man, being a rock star and a Mormon.

Even when I’m 90 I will still know every single word to this song. New Order’s Bizarre Love Triangle, obviously. Substance! God, that album. For an entire year, I used to get ready to Thieves Like Us, pretending I was Molly Ringwald. Anyway, Brandon Flowers (you didn’t think I would start the week without him, did you?) is continuing to tour the UK – The Desired Effect topped UK sales charts in its first week – and performed last night in Manchester…with Bernard Sumner.

If you’re in Canada returning from the long weekend, we posted a few articles yesterday so please scroll down to get caught up.
I had a deadline last night which seriously cut into my Brandon Flowers creeping time. The album is out now. And I have a flight later so he’s coming with me to LA. He, however, will not be in LA because he’s been in the UK the last few days. Plays a show tonight in Dublin. On Friday he performed on Graham Norton. After the song was done, he was invited to join the couch, next to comedian Michael McIntyre. Who could not get over that face. It is a spectacular face. So spectacular that Michael, well, he couldn’t contain himself. It’s almost like …he’s confused by it. Like he can’t quite believe it. The expression on his face is hilarious. Start at 3:45 below to get right to the interview if you don’t want to sit through the singing. BUT WHY NOT???
Just indulge me for a couple more weeks. As my friends have pointed out often, I’m fickle. My crushes never last long. Sooner or later I’ll see him in a pair of pants I don’t like and it’ll be over.
Yours in gossip,
I’m sorry, I can’t stop. Last night before bed, Jacek was watching the news and I had my headphones in, cranked up loud. He was asking me something and I couldn’t hear. Then he tapped me and I still didn’t react. He finally had to shove his face into the side of my head before I noticed.
“Are you creeping Brandon Flowers again?”
I’m obsessed with this album, not unlike how obsessed I was with Taylor Swift’s 1989. Because both are so unapologetically, gleefully POP. The thing with pop, and my relationship to it, is that it came first for me. It was mine. I grew up in an immigrant home. My Chinese parents didn’t have a music library. They didn’t, couldn’t, introduce me to whatever it is you want to call “classic rock”. Pop was on the radio. Pop was what was there for me to discover. Pop was the first love. And it was a door too. Because pop isn’t snobby. Pop doesn’t tell you that you can’t go and learn about punk afterwards and then move on to soul, folk, metal, and on. I’ll never not have an iPod without New Order on it. Or Duran Duran. And in this new interview Brandon Flowers just addressed rumours that he might be collaborating with one of the bands, or both. OMG.
Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Photos and recap on Monday. Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
Let me leave you with this for the weekend…because this actually distracted me for a few minutes from my obsession with Brandon Flowers. PS. Brandon is performing tonight on Graham Norton. He’s doing I Can Change. OK but back to Charlie Hunnam and his lap. Guy Ritchie posted this on Instagram. Full Story

As I mentioned yesterday, Miley Cyrus was in New York last night performing at the Adult Swim upfront party. Then she went out to party with Bella Hadid and Scout Willis. And her nipples were all over the place. Get over it. In other Miley news, her focus lately has been on launching Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit aimed to raise awareness for LGBT homeless, at-risk and LGBT youth and collaborating with other artists in a series of Backyard Sessions in support of the charity.

I spend my nights listening to Brandon Flowers, creeping him online. Wait. Can you call it creeping when you don’t bother hiding it? Jacek will come up from the basement, see me on my laptop, and know right away. “Are you perving out on Brandon Flowers again?” YES. Read Full Intro

Brandon Flowers was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Two Brandon posts in two days. This isn’t helping my problem. Because… well… the voice. Some people live? They’re sh-t. Him? The notes are there. And his energy. His charisma. His FACE. I mean I thought he was all of it with short hair. Full Story
