Watch Grimes Interview 2 Chainz, Riff Raff, Snooki, Richard Simmons, & More On The VMA Red Carpet

Last week, we learned the exciting news that Grimes, along with fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, would co-host MTV Style's VMA red carpet show. Sadly, we did not get one single glimpse of Claire Boucher on the network's official pre-show. But Grimes stayed busy filming on-camera interviews for the web. There was the much-blogged-about moment… More »

If you played our VMAs 2013 Drinking Game, you are very drunk right now. Tonight MTV invaded Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards, the borough's first-ever televised live awards ceremony.

Jared Leto As Kurt Cobain

Yesterday we hoped Kurt Cobain was resting in peace. Jared Leto apparently was not interested in the same. He uploaded a clip to 30SecondsToMars's YouTube page, described this way: I heard today (April 5) was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can't believe it's been that long. So grateful for his contributio… More »

Kanye West, Jared Leto, & Brandon Flowers Walk Into A Bar…

Is this not the triumvirate of wiseass blog commenters' dreams? The genre-bending trio is not as unlikely as it seems. Leto and Gayfish go way back, with 30 Seconds To Mars covering "Stronger" a few years ago only to incur Yeezy's wrath by beating out the rapper at the following year's VMAs. (Kanye later… More »

Kanye Apologizes To Jeret Leto

There were a few names Kanye used in attacking the credibility of MTV's award-selecting process, names like Britney Spears and Jared Leto. Later Ye felt bad and apologized to Leto, by spelling his name "Jeret" on his blog (now fixed). He also reminds us Jeret once covered a Kanye song, a moment for… More »

Juliana Hatfield Still Blogging About TV, Streaming New Song “Shining On”

Juliana's The Hills takedown was just a precursor to an even deeper, more self-revealing post on her relationship with television. If you love her, it's a must-read. Alternatively if you love My So-Called Life, it is also a must-read. Therein J regales us with the backstory of that one time she played a singer-songwriter-specter… More »

Chapter 27 Gets A Trailer, Fat Official Poster

We've followed Jared Leto's weight fluctuations for his role as Lennon-assassin Mark David Chapman in the forthcoming Chapter 27 as closely as we've followed his doucehbaggery (relax you can still use that word when it's Jared Leto) simply because it has to suck knowing the hell he put his body through for… More »

Spank Rock: “I Would Kick Jared Leto’s Ass”

We've had our differences with 30 Seconds To Mars' Jared Leto, so we were intrigued when we heard about this video of Spank Rock/Bangers & Cash's Naeem talking shit about the King of Douche to Blender. Actually, we can't help but feel responsible for the hubbub: "One of the blogs today said we got… More »

30 Seconds To Mars Cover Kanye West

Poor 50 Cent ... Kanye's on everybody's minds and iPods these days: And when we say everybody, we also mean emo whipping boy Jared Leto. Recently, 30 Seconds To Mars got all Pink Floyd-y on Jo Whiley for a breathy, alt-snore take on "Stronger." Maybe it's not all that silly in theory, but you… More »

The Smashing Pumpkins Get A Mall-Punk Makeover

What better way to welcome back Billy and Jimmy than with a stick of eyeliner. MySpace Records is organizing a Smashing Pumpkins tribute album for which participating bands will premiere their respective contributions via their MySpace pages on May 14th, followed by a CD packaged for free with the July issue of guess-which-magazine (Hint: SPIN).

Body By Jared

Big developments since last we checked in with our favorite actor/singer. For one, the 30 Seconds To Mars bassist just quit. Sad news, music lovers! And in another crushing development, Jared's nose was broken during a stagedive at a 30STM show when nobody caught him. (Sounds like somebody's fans are starting… More »

Jared Leto Almost Waffles His Way Into Our Hearts

Just a few months ago, Jared Leto made lots of internet friends with a raging polemic against the blogosphere, But after a depressing night Googling himself (we assume), Catalano changed his tune on us pesky Movable Typers (via Spinner):I was being flippant about something and I think it got taken slightly out… More »

Jared Leto as Mark David Chapman! Reviews are coming in from Sundance. Hoo. Ray. Rotten Tomatoes writes "Leto did a great job of gaining those extra pounds." Slash Film says, "Leto is almost entirely unrecognizable!" Sean Lennon raves, "Tacky!" Hope your gout's better Jared. More »

Casting Couch: Buckingham & Nicks (And Win Signed Under The Skin Swag)

MTVu’s Woodies Awards 2006

We left the dorms behind a little while back, so we've never even seen MTVu, but when invited to Roseland Ballroom for the station's annual Woodie Awards and told that TV On The Radio and Beck would perform, we said "Yes." And then when they said that Catalano and 30 Seconds To Mars would be… More »

30 Seconds To Mars, Guns N’ Roses @ Inland Invasion

"The Kill" is up at YouTube. 3STM's weekend set for KROQ reminds us of the band's Lolla performance: Jared in a silly costume, cursing a lot. It's about the music, though. Not the image. In this pre-show interview, Jared reveals, "This isn't a band of faces ... and of fashion." The interviewer congratulate… More »

Jared Leto Hates Your Blog

The 30 Seconds To Martian talks to G4TV:"I think that blogging should die a sudden death. It's just ridiculous. It's like a playground for four-year-olds. People say and do things in the world of blogs that they would never do in real life, and I think it's a false experience. You know,… More »

Today In Lennon: Seance, Reissue, Juggling, Leto

1. John Lennon fans are understandably peeved that he'll be the unwilling headliner of a 4/24 pay-per-view séance that will attempt to make contact with the dead Beatle. Starcast Productions head Paul Sharratt explains:"People say this is disgusting and I accept that criticism, but we're making a serious attempt to do something that many, many… More »

Jared Leto Is Mark David Chapman

Jordon Catalono has totally transformed himself into John Lennon's killer for the upcoming Chapter 27. Perhaps Leto's hoping for an Oscar nod? But that doesn't seem likely given that co-star Lindsay Lohan is sure to mar the flick's dignity. The reader who sent the pic to us suggested Leto-as-Chapman resembled Ben Gibbard, but we won't… More »
