I don’t know where the weird rumor that Rob Thomas and Tom Cruise had gay butt-sex together came from, but I do know that when people find out that I am a Matchbox Twenty fan that it’s the first thing they tell me.

But I say if anyone talks smack about the lead singer of Matchbox Twenty, who I’ve had a crush on since I was 14, I’m going to be handing out knuckle sandwiches. [NYC, 7/3/09] Keep reading »
