On Grindr’s debut episode of their podcast ‘Who’s The Asshole?Orville Peck opened up about his worst breakup to even how he feels about Brad Pitt.

Sitting down with the RuPaul’s Drag Race alum and podcast host Katya Zamolodchikova, the two dove into some of their takes on dating apps and even dating in general.

When it comes to unsolicited pictures on dating apps, Peck, 36, stated “I think block away. That is your prerogative. If you feel like for whatever reason someone is crossing a boundary that you don’t like or making you uncomfortable, block them. Block whoever you want. Block Block Block.”

Yet, when it came to his own experience with heartbreak, the country singer admitted that there was once a time he was looking to move in with a former partner when things took a sudden turn.

“I was flying to move in with him, I left my life. We had been having issues but I was in line waiting to board and I get a call and he’s like you can’t move anymore, don’t get on the plane.”

Meanwhile, while discussing celebrity crushes and Grindr dates, the duo discussed one celebrity heartthrob that still captures the attention of many – Brad Pitt.


The country star noted, “Our generation, [Brad Pitt] was like the marker for handsome. That was the description of someone handsome.”

The “Dead of Night” singer admitted that he once awkwardly ran into him at an event, and panicked asking him where the restroom was. Despite the interesting run in, he said he was able to shake it off.

He also went on to add, “He’s beautiful and I would risk it all to have one night of bliss with him.”

The singer even stated “I want him to hold me.”

Aside from dating life and crushes, Peck noted that even though he recently celebrated a birthday, he admitted that karaoke is not particularly his favorite – unless he’s getting paid.

Last year, Peck shared the news via social media expressing his regrets and hopes that his fanbase could understand the “incredibly difficult decision” to postpone the remainder of his “Bronco” tour, a lineup of summer dates across North America that kicked off June 20,


“This was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I’ve come to realize that my current mental and physical health won’t allow me to bring you my best,” Peck wrote in his post. “My fans mean the absolute world to me and I am so incredibly thankful to every single person who has bought a ticket to come and see us play, I do not take it for granted.”
