Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees Talks So Cal, Supervillain Fashion
“When I’m smiling with fans, I do the Kourtney Kardashian dead-behind-the-eyes,” Tyler Glenn tells Radio.com. It’s not because he dislikes posing with his adoring public. It’s not even a thing he means to do. Glenn simply doesn’t like his smile — or more accurately, his toothy grin.
Stars: they’re insecure about their looks, just like us.
Glenn goes on to tell us that he used his childhood and teen influences of punk and SoCal rock to cultivate a bad guy look in his early days. Cobbling together a black leather and mohawk aesthetic was something Glenn admits was a posture to deal with both his stage fright and the bullies who didn’t like the way he dressed as a kid.
“It was a security blanket to dress tougher than maybe I was,” Glenn laughs.
