The Killers appeared in style at the Grammy red carpet yesterday
where apparently white has become the new black in Grammy fashion. The
perfectly groomed Brandon Flowers was right on the pulse wearing a
creme-colored tuxedo. The band did not receive any awards last night
despite three nominations.
Fans on The Killers Network messageboard have been discussing Flowers' ambiguous sexuality, gay-themed lyrics and boylove behavior on
stage. One fan argues that there are parallels between Flowers and Morrissey
who both purposely have used a stage persona to create an air of mystery.
Prior to the Grammy show, Flowers talked about his inspiration for their hit single "Somebody Told Me" with AP. "I love the play on words. I think of it as a great icebreaker," he says. "I think of it as the ultimate pickup line. If I was a girl, I would think that it's very clever if a boy came up to me and said that to me."
