Jared Leto spoke with Details magazine in a Q&A, where the 30 Seconds to Mars singer was asked about whether the eyeliner, crazy hairstyles and elaborate outfits make him view his concert performances like another acting gig. “No, no, no. As a musician, it’s about revealing more of who you really are,” Leto responded. “I’m not handed a script with dialogue; there’s no cinematographer or editor. I’m not so interested in creating a persona. There have been shows where I’ve been very plain and shows where I’ve worn a dress. I’ve got a skirt on right now. I was in Japan and all the busboys were wearing them.” Read more.
