His So Called Gay Life
So the internet is a buzz with a conversation that Jared Leto had during an online AOL chat where like Bowie before him, has admitted he is gay. Sort of. Of course, rockers have played the ambiguous sexual field for along time and even Jared hinted that he's like Morrissey - another figure who has danced on an a-sexual kick for ages. If nothing more, his admission to this has caused all sorts of PR for his band, 30 Seconds to Mars and ultimately generated the biggest buzz on the band yet.
Or maybe it is true and Jared is indeed a gay man, and only until recently been able to admit it to himself and is ready to come forward to the world. Maybe we can thank Colin Farrell and Oliver Stone for giving Jared a part in Alexander and awaking those desires. Who knows. Only time and another direct statement from Mr. Leto will tell. But of course, it's always good to have another 'out' public figure. So if it is true, congratulations of your bravery and perfect timing.
