In the past few weeks, the members of Blink-182 have gone head-to-head over social media making fans wonder if there would ever be new Blink music again. Now, thanks to founding member Tom DeLonge, fans are asking less about the band’s relationship status, and more about the guitarist’s mental stability.
It’s no secret that the pop-punk artist has had interest in extraterrestrial life, thanks to his site Strange Times that features UFO and other less mainstream news. He even wrote a song about the subject (1999’s “Aliens Exist,” off Blink-182’s commercial breakthrough album, Enema of the State). But many were shocked to find out just how deep this hobby has gone.
In a recent interview with Paper, DeLonge stated that he’s not only had encounters with aliens, but that the government knows about them, and he may be in danger as a result.
He went on to say: “You have to understand, I’ve been involved in this for a long time. I have sources from the government. I’ve had my phone tapped.”
DeLonge also spoke of 150 hours of top-secret testimony on a U.S. secret space program, some of which he claims to have had hidden at his house.
When asked if he was concerned for his safety, the musician said that he was because he believed that a colleague of his had been a victim of mind-control experiments.
It seems pretty far out, but apparently DeLonge believes this is all completely real. He tweeted on Wednesday: “Just watched a video of NASA Administrator saying he believes there is life on Mars. I’m not totally crazy. Have some fun, look up.”
The reports prompted mixed reaction on Twitter. Some thought DeLonge’s remarks indicated that he needed help:
But everyone was not quick to dismiss him. Some gave him the benefit of the doubt:
