Former Blink-182 member, Tom DeLonge, has us a little worried.

The rocker gave a really bizarre interview to Paper magazine where he talks about aliens, phone tapping and government coverups — and it is some weird stuff. It's important to note that DeLonge has been telling everyone that aliens exist for the better part of two decades, but considering how weird this interview is, and the fact that DeLonge just announced last month he's leaving the band he helped start, we're a little worried about the guy.

We'll just let this bizarre excerpt speak for itself. You can read the full interview here:

DeLonge: You have to understand, I've been involved in this for a long time. I have sources from the government. I've had my phone tapped. I've done a lot of weird stuff in this industry — people wouldn't believe me if I told them. But this is what happens when you start getting on an email chain with hundreds of scientists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and different universities around the country, and you start outing seniors scientists from Lockheed Martin talking about the reality of this stuff, guys that hold 30 patents, guys that work underground out in the Nevada test sites in Area 51. It goes far beyond just saying, "Hey, that little light in the sky, that's a little green man." That doesn't lend the right gravity to the topic.

Paper magazine: You've had your phone tapped?

DeLonge: Yeah, yeah I did. For quite some time. Years ago, there was somebody who was gathering 150 hours of top secret testimony specifically for Congressional hearings on government projects and the US secret space program. People from NASA, Rome, the Vatican, you name it, they're all on there. The top 36 hours that summarized the best parts of all of that footage, I had it hidden in my house for a period of time, and during that time I was flying this person out along with somebody that was Wernher von Braun's right-hand assistant. Wernher von Braun was a Nazi scientist that we brought over to build our Apollo rockets that got us to the moon, and on his deathbed he told this person a bunch of stuff, and I was flying them out to Los Angeles and we were taking certain meetings. At that time a lot of weird stuff started happening.

Paper magazine: Were you concerned about your safety at all?

DeLonge: Partially. Because they do weird stuff. At the time I didn't know it, but the person I was dealing with was being awoken in the middle of the night with clicking and buzzing noises and falling on the ground vomiting, every morning at 4 a.m. I know now that those are artifacts from mind-control experiments, where the same technology that we use to find oil underground, we can zap somebody at the same frequency that the brain operates on, and it can cause some really horrific things to happen. But I didn't know this until 10 years later.

Naturally, the internet is having a field day with the interview. DeLonge is being made fun of from every direction, but nobody seems to be pointing out the obvious: These aren't normal thoughts and he might need help.
