Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn comes out in latest 'Rolling Stone'

Neon Trees’ frontman Tyler Glenn came out as gay in an interview for the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, in which he talks about his first crushes and his feelings on fellow LGBT celebrities.

“I really love all of the sports figures that are coming out recently,” Glenn told Rolling Stone. “I appreciated Michael Sam was like, ‘I want to be able to go to the movies and hold hands with my boyfriend.’ Even hearing him say ‘boyfriend,’ I was just like, that’s cool.”

'Dallas Buyers Club' soundtrack: Hear new songs from Tegan and Sara, Neon Trees, My Morning Jacket and more - EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

One of this fall’s most anticipated movies, The Dallas Buyers Club, tells the true story of Texas native Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), whose 1986 HIV diagnosis, received in an era before treatment was readily available, spurred him to start his own prescription drug-smuggling ring.

The movie, which also stars Jared Leto, Steve Zahn, and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t open until this Friday, November 1, but you can stream the soundtrack exclusively here today. The album features brand new compositions by the likes of Tegan and Sara, My Morning Jacket, Fitz and the Tantrums, Neon Trees, Cold War Kids, and Leto’s own band Thirty Seconds to Mars. The album kicks off with Shuggie Otis’ stoned-soul anthem “Sweet Thang,” and also includes two classic T. Rex songs.

If you buy the album on iTunes (where it goes on sale today), 40 cents of every sale will go to the AIDS relief charity Project (RED)‘s Global Fund.  Jared Leto will be taking over Project (RED)’s Twitter account today at 11:30 AM Eastern/8:30 AM Pacific to answer questions about the movie, the soundtrack, and AIDS awareness.

On the Charts: 'Everybody Talks' has everybody talking, TobyMac has his 'Eye' on No. 1

Some say rock music is dying.

But no one told that to Neon Trees. The Utah-formed band earned their first Top 10 single on Billboard‘s Hot 100 this week with “Everybody Talks,” which jumped from No. 11 to No. 6 and sold 102,000 downloads.

Neon Trees formerly reached No. 13 with their 2010 Glee-approved hit “Animal,” but “Everybody Talks,” with its fuzzy pop-tinged chorus  and infectious wails, is proving to be more of a chart powerhouse.

In a pop music world dominated by dancy synths, it’s a testament to the continued viability of actual bands that two songs above “Everybody Talks” — fun.’s “Some Nights” (No. 5) and Maroon 5’s “One More Night” (No. 3) — are both doing so well.

“Everybody Talks” (which, for the record, I totally called back in April) has taken 25 weeks to reach the Top 10 (it also just hit No. 1 on Adult Pop Songs), and we’ll see if it climbs even higher in the future. For now, though, let’s check out the week’s other chart winners and losers: READ FULL STORY

On the Charts: Taylor Swift's big sales, Flo Rida's 'Whistle' blows up, The Lumineers say 'Hey'

Taylor Swift’s new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” may just sell the most downloads ever! ever! ever! in its first week.

Released on Monday night, the song is reportedly heading to first-week downloads in the 600,000 range, which would make the breakup anthem the fastest selling song ever by a female artist. (Lady Gaga currently holds that record with “Born This Way,” which was downloaded 448,000 times in its first frame.)

There’s one song Taylor probably will probably not outsell, though: “Right Round” by Flo Rida feat. Ke$ha, which sold 636,000 songs in a single week in 2009. Still, if she climbs past Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” which moved 521,000 editions in its first week, she’ll have the second-best sales week in digital history. Not too shabby.

We’ll see how high “Never,” which hit No. 72 on this week’s Hot 100, soars next week, but for now, let’s check out the week’s other chart winners and losers: READ FULL STORY
