More than any other person I’ve ever interviewed, Turner is so profoundly aware of the need to express himself with precision that it occasionally seems to leave him vocally hamstrung. He stops himself, retraces his steps, leaves long gaps while searching for exactly the right metaphor. 
"It’s why I don’t have Twitter," he says. "Too much pressure." 
At one point, he interrupts his own disquisition on the merits of playing darts with: “Fuck it. I’m not going to bother with that. You don’t want to hear that analogy.”

A message from edgar-allen-pho
Hey thanks a lot for posting that critique of Alex's speech, I have so many good and bad thoughts about that band and they keep hovering in and out of that zone of being *my* band, and it was a well written page of thought that has given me more to think about and just thanks!
A reply from offbeatorbit

Honestly my critique wouldn’t have been so harsh if I was 100% sure they were trolling but like this whole…act has been so engrained in Alex’s entire public persona over the past few years that I’m starting to wonder if it is even an act anymore like…THAT’S what bugs me.

That and people acting like that speech was some profound shit like p l s RELAX.

THIS IS DEFFO MY BAND BUT SOMETIMES THEY/THE FANS MAKE IT HARD LIKE…DAMN Y’ALL.

but people tend to believe what they like to believe. isn’t it

Wait what? Not necessarily??? Why would I want to believe that Alex is stuck in a permanent state of cosplaying a greaser dork?

i wouldnt say permanent because we only see him through our public eyes. (its hard to make out whats someone really like in this way)

because i personally wouldnt want to believe that during the recent years (since maybe he’s got that quiff thing) the airs he put on, just like you said, was “real airs” and the act was no act anymore…

and the moment he dropped that mic i think everyone should realize that the things he said are all some sarcastic bullshit and you should not take that seriously even it may sounds like profound and deep and all that (wat?) at least all these times during brit awards have shown that he’s still that guy

People who thought what he said had any legitimacy are embarrassing, but tbh the only reason why I’m giving this major side eye is because it’s one thing to be a twat at the award show (like they have usually been from the jump) but lol this dude has been acting like this in every aspect of the public eye to the point where it is like…exhausting. Then goofing off at award shows never extended to them acting the same exact way on stage for example. But at every show I’ve been to in the end of the sias era and the AM era it has been the same ~rock n rooooooll~ persona and it’s like…LOL come ON. None of us know how he is IRL but I think I am allowed to be tired and skeptical of this shit.

i completely agree with you on the “embarrassing” thing. everyone should be. even the other three of the monkeys are from what i see.

of course you are allowed. i myself have doubted a few times too. i think you can check out the interview they did after the brit with jo whiley. it may help.
