So word is Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba has collaborated with cross-dressing, pink-haired freak show Jeffree Star. If your reaction to the name Jeffree Star was “who?”, consider yourself lucky. As is the case with Tila Tequila, MySpace is 100% to blame for this monstrosity. I had the unpleasant experience of having to hear it’s god awful excuse for music almost everyday this summer on Warped Tour. Yes, I am going to refer to it as “it” because frankly I have no fucking clue if Jeffree’s even human. Think of it’s music as Marilyn Manson meets Mindless Self Indulgence meets Metro Station. Yes….its THAT bad. To make matters worse, Star has been associated with Britney Spears’ #1 fan, Chris Crocker. I guess when you’re that much of a freak and you see someone else on the internet who is just as much if not MORE of a freak than you are, the obvious thing to do is starting dating/fucking them.

Star also started shit with Alesana this past summer claiming they were homophobes and that they “slandered” it at the Bamboozle fest. This turned out to be an outright lie as evidenced by Alesana’s MySpace blog. Why is it always the overly-flaming ones that assume everyone who ISN’T gay must be a homophobe?

But back to the Matt Skiba thing. Did Agony & Irony really sell THAT badly that Skiba needed to whore himself out to this thing? I didn’t think it was that bad of a record. In fact, it was on my top 10 of 2008 I did about a month ago. So the only possible explanation for this must be that Jeffree Star wants to branch out because it is tired of having a fanbase that consists only of 12-17 year old gay boys and nu goth/vampire girls. But if it thinks Alkaline Trio fans are suddenly gonna decide his music is good just because Skiba’s doing guest vocals, then it  is clearly a much bigger moron than I had originally thought.

Had the apocalypse come already?, lol

At what point does one ask themselves…”haven`t I already made enough of an idiot out of myself through the years?…”. I think Matt & Pink need to do a music video together =)

((thanks for the Paramore/No Doubt concert alert btw))

Ew…please don’t lump MSI in there =(, I like their stuff. Manson can be okay, and I’ve never listened to Metro Station. Though, I listened to one of his songs just now, and I can see why you get MSI out of that.

He’s [it’s] not gay; It’s an attention whore.
