Jack Antonoff of Bleachers’ enigmatic Emoji secrets — REVEALED!
So, let’s say you’re just walkin’ along, texting Jack Antonoff because hey, it’s not your fault he eventually gave you them digits after you cornered him at the show last night yelling and screaming for his number. Finally, the Bleachers frontman responds with that winking, tongue-out Emoji.
Cool, right? Well, as our own Tamar Anitai learned while interviewing the “I Wanna Get Better” singer at the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards, that is literally the opposite of cool when it’s coming from him. Trust us, it’s, like, worse than the poop face, angry mask, and eggplant combined.
If Jack Antonoff ever texts you this Emoji…
Other important gleanings include how Jack settled on the name “Bleachers” for his new side project during the fun. off-season, and his thoughts on starting a supergroup called “Garbage Pail Face” composed entirely of “sh**ty-looking terriers.” FTR, we’ve never been more onboard with anything in our lives.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of things we’re completely here for all the time always, watch Bleachers perform their debut, ’80s-throwback single, “I Wanna Get Better,” live at the Woodies festival on Thursday. And don’t miss headlining acts Iggy Azalea, Childish Gambino, and The 1975 tonight on MTV. If you do, we’ll tell Jack, and he’ll be sure to send you one very pointed Emoji — we mean it.
