Beecake tix now up on ORC!|
In other news, a couple of my fandoms unpleasantly collided. Apparently Jared Leto of 30STM and Elijah Wood had a... confrontation a while back during an awards ceremony: http://www.theonering.net/perl/newsview/1/1169774707
. Okaaaaay... now I just have to have Adam Busch diss Billy Boyd's... anything. *head spins*
Jared Leto apparently has trigger temper. Shame on him.
*sigh* He's worked incredibly hard over the last year. I'm not going to make any judgements, since I don't know the full details.
How on earth can you diss Billy? And Elijah should perhaps keep his indie leanings focused on happy guys like The Flaming Lips. I suspect Mr. Leto has a bit of an ego on him. Am I right?
I know... *L*!
As to the ego... don't really know. I do know that the man has been non-stop touring for 1 or 2 years (actually, just one stop, and that was for movie that he gained weight for, and then lost it all in one month) so I would imagine it's been an exhausting year. Enough to put anybody on edge. But it may be ego, too.

LMAO it's not just the past year or two; he's always been a pretentious ass. Reports of his HUGE ego and diva like behavior have been around for WAY longer than just the past two years.
All I can say is - when I've seen him in person, he's been incredibly nice. *G*

And that's wonderful for you, I mean that sincerely. I hate to see ANY musician or actor treat their fans with disrespect whether I give a damn about them or not, so when I hear nice stories I'm thrilled. But he is admittedly an asshole; he's proud of that fact. If you do a google search for jared leto and pretentious or asshole or some other variation of that theme, you'll get literally tens of thousands of hits of articles like this (http://lindsayism.typepad.com/lindsayismcom_/2004/11/the_biggest_dou.html)
And if you like him, good for you. I'm not trying to condemn you for that fact. But you shouldn't be surprised when news like this comes out since it's a pretty well known fact even among his fans (of which I know many).
