Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge alien news is the gift that keeps on giving. The former Blink-182 guitarist recently shared some interesting thoughts online regarding extraterrestrial life. Tom, the bygone Blink boy, often discloses enlightening tidbits on his various social media outlets, this titillating declaration from last week being no exception. Apparently, DeLonge is interested in what power alien intelligence may hold over human sexual desire.
As reported by Alternative Nation, news of Tom DeLonge’s alien sex thoughts stemmed from the following quote on his Instagram. In promotion for a custom-designed shirt from the one-time Blink-182 member and current UFO chaser, Tom espoused his views on aliens’ supposed otherworldly control of human reproductive compulsions.
“Alien life has long held a super-genetic ability to control the minds of humans and other lower life-forms. Often, the Alien Intelligence will project absurd imagery such as Unicorns, Rainbows and even Nude Cowboy Men as a means of enslavery to ones own sexual desires.”
Ultimate Guitar Archive also picked up on Tom’s alien sex story, the website’s vast comments section quickly compiling multiple users’ armchair diagnoses for what they feel may be DeLonge’s latent psychosis or possible schizophrenia in service to his Jovian worldview.
Is Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge mentally ill? Could it be possible that Tom is actually in possession of undisclosed government intelligence regarding the possibility of alien life?
Much ballyhoo was made during DeLonge’s acrimonious Blink exit of his research into extraterrestrials. Tom, the former sidekick of Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus in their early aughts blend of post-pubescent revelry and dirty jokes, reportedly holds no humor for his current pursuits — DeLonge is serious about alien outlook.
Tom, the songwriter of Blink-182’s “Aliens Exist,” spoke to Mic regarding his current explorations of the unknown. Discounting that tune as an “eighth album track from, like, 20 years ago,” DeLonge shed light on the song’s closing salvo of “12 majestic lies,” an apparent reference to UFO conspiracy theory.
“The very last line of that song references this urban legend in UFO folklore called Majestic 12, these documents that got leaked in the ’80s that described an entire organization of top-level scientists, military people and intelligence officials that manage the information of this phenomenon. I put the name in that song, and the irony now is that I’m dealing with people from the modern version of whatever that group is called. It’s a big deal.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge was replaced with guitarist-vocalist Matt Skiba last year. Skiba joins the group from punk band Alkaline Trio, a Chicago-based veteran rock outfit. The reformulated and now Tom-less Blink released their comeback album California last month, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and are currently on an extensive U.S. tour with Skiba into the fall.
Meanwhile, DeLonge is hard at work on various projects under the banner of his To The Stars media business. Tom released the novel Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows with sci-fi author A. J. Hartley earlier this year, its counterpart Sekret Machines EP a new four-song release by DeLonge’s present-day band Angels & Airwaves.
