Brandon Flowers Speaks about Gay Fans


In a recent interview with British gay magazine Boyz, the Killers' Brandon Flowers riffs on gay fans, transsexuals and a date with Elton John. The interview also appeared on Kill Me Now, an excellent daily newswire with information about the Killers. Below are a few clips from the interview. Jump over to Kill Me Now to read the entire story.

Boyz: You're a big hit with gay indie gentlemen, were you aware of that?
Brandon Flowers: I assumed that.

Why, do you get a lot of boyz throwing themselves at you?
Er, sometimes, yeah.

How do you feel about it?
Well, we're here for boys and girls. We don't turn anybody away!

You used to play in a transsexual bar in Vegas, didn't you?
Yeah, we played at a place called Tramps once a month. A friend of ours was a DJ and he set up a night at this place, spinning Britpop and things like that, and so it was perfect for us to play in between the DJ. There'd be the occasional tranny, but it was really a mixed crowd.

You played with Elton John recently didn't you?

We played with Elton in France, and we're going to go out for dinner with him as well. We're so excited! He has a show in Vegas, and he's a big fan and we're big fans of his. When I was 13 I really got the Elton bug and all his 70s hits and stuff were so amazing, so I can't wait.

So are you taking him out or is he taking you out?
I don't know. I wouldn't mind buying Elton dinner! We owe him for the music he's given the world.

Do you think Elton wants a piece of you?
I think he's into Ronnie, the drummer.

Posted by: ilovebrandon at Mar 4, 2005 2:08:21 AM

I think that Brandon is the sexiest thing since, EVER! And in the mr. Brightside video, He's soooooo Hot!
And I really don't think he's gay.

Posted by: jenny at Mar 4, 2005 3:48:40 PM

I think you are all crazy. First of all to that one person up there its Billie _Joe_, not Jo. And to the other person who doesn't even know who he is, you have a deprived life.
Anyway, Brandon is pretty darn hott, but I like Billie too. His oldest son, Joseph, is my bestfriend<3 But anyways..byebye.
