You cannot help yourself from being swept away by Jared Leto, and this is not an “girls – exclusive” talk, this is serious. Either you are a fan of his interesting filmography, his music or simply his looks, Jared Leto proved that he is not just one complete and rather surprising superstar, but also a man of many trades and many traits as well. Now we all know he received his first Oscar Award at 42 years old (which, between you and us, might be pissing off Leonardo DiCaprio a little to say the least) and even he had an on and off relationship with the movie industry, he managed to deliver some brilliant performances along the years. If you remember Requiem for a Dream, you know what we are talking about. But today we will focus more on 30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto as a success story and an inseparable unity, because just as Jared often declared, music is a constant, consistent and vivid part of who he is. And if the guys from Concertfull are not mistaken, 30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto will perform live on stage on 8th of March, on Hartwall Areena in Helsinki. So let’s take a look back to both band, musician, actor, philanthropist and one of those hot guys who actually get better with age, and see the success story of 30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto.
30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto: The Music
It is all about the music apparently and, as we said before, the band is on its way to tour the world. From Moscow, Russia, to Sydney, Australia, from Tokyo, Japan, to Bucharest, Romania, 30 Seconds to Mars seems to be on top of its game as a valuable alternative rock band ready to conquer the world. Will the band take advantage of its new – gained leverage of having an Academy Awarded lead singer? If we were to bet, we’d say the concerts will soon get sold out in many cities where concerts are scheduled this spring and summer. And even if Jared Leto had some sort of quirky relationship with cinema, being on and off the wagon for many years, the band is pretty well appraised by music lovers, fans and critics. About a year ago, a columnist from WhatCulture listed the best ten songs of the band with Attack ranking first place. They may have not sold hundreds of millions of copies, but they established themselves a solid position in the world of music and given the news, we may be in for a lot of surprises in the years to come.
30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto: The Humanitarian Activism
You’ll say that every famous band and every celebrity is involved one way or the other in charity, fund – raising and social activism. This may be true, and it is true, don’t get us wrong, but in this particular case, it seems that the band and its lead vocal (and also guitar, bass and keyboards) are getting involved in big and tragic causes without hunting for publicity. It may be just an impression, but in the last years you rarely heard of Leto or his colleagues bragging around for saving humanity. And still, they were involved in Habitat for Humanity’s projects, Red Cross projects, a charity auction in the benefit of 2010 Haiti earthquake victims and supported a bunch of other organizations in humanitarian purposes. Again, this is something most celebrities do, but we are glad that 30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto do it also.
The hot stud and the emotional Oscar Awards Speech
Seeing Jared Leto on stage would make you think you have hallucinated for the entirety of Dallas Buyers Club, but you didn’t. He is indeed a very sexy gentleman, as you can see for yourself, as he graced with his hot and sophisticated persona the cover of the Flaunt Magazine when he was “just” an Oscar Award Nominee. If you didn’t see his acceptance speech, find it on YouTube and watch it. It sounds honest and emotional and humble and many people were happy to see a man not being corrupted by fame and fortune yet.
If you want to know what’s in store for 30 Seconds to Mars and Jared Leto, well, keep yourself updated to the news. Now that they are all in the spotlight, we may be seeing more of him, hear about the band a lot more often and maybe be lucky enough to attend a concert or buy tickets to his next movie.
