Lately I've been dealing with a major theological conundrum. Quandary, even! It's about Brandon Flowers, frontman for The Killers. This may or may not come as a surprise to you.

Backstory! As many of you know, Mr. Flowers is a Mormon. He's down with the Latter-Day Saints. You can see how this is a bit of a disconnect for not only a rock star, but for a pretty cool one at that. Wikipedia told me (we meet for iced teas and gossip on Tuesdays and Thursdays) that he's an on-again-off-again drinker and smoker, and I knew prior that he appreciates the gays. Obviously these are all very non-Mormon things to do. Which brings me to the conundrum. If he can do all these other things...

Why can't Brandon Flowers ever take his shirt off for photographs?

Instead, he's usually in something with feathers. Or faux fur. Or animal print. Which I'm fine with, but come on. I invited some of the top minds in the academic community to have an honest, enlightening discussion concerning this matter. Unfortunately, none of them showed up. Someone please find me an answer. Or, preferably - evidence to the contrary. That is all.

By Jove (or in this case, by JOE) u are oh so right. I was intent on proving u wrong, but after searching an hour I gave up. Brandon flowers does not take his shirt off!! How odd is that??
