My first reaction to seeing this video of 30 Seconds to Mars covering Rihanna’s “Stay” was, Oh so that’s how Jordan Catalano sings now. For some reason, I assumed Jared Leto always sounded exactly the way he did when Frozen Embryos covered the Ramones’ “Sedated,” or when he sang that song “Red” about his car, on “My So-Called Life.” Anyway, 30 Seconds to Mars is still not my jam, but damn if my panties did not drop the minute Jared opened his mouth. Maybe that’s because we shared a moment when he was in our office a few weeks ago and now I have a more intimate connection with him, sorry to brag. [Dlisted]
Dear Jared Leto,
J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My So Called Life.” Your turn as Jordan Catalano — (“Y Kant Jordan Read?,” never forget) — the frustratingly vacant love interest of Angela Chase (remember how darling Claire Danes was before Latisse?) broke a million teenage girl hearts.

Thoughts? [via BuzzFeed

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. And the freshest track is coming from my fave awesome art rock band: The Liars. They’re releasing Sisterworld in March, but you hip, hot Frisky gals can get an mp3 taste of it by heading here! I’ve been basically playing their super awesome song “Scissors” on loop. Now, as for the albums out this week, Snoop Dogg is still the shizneezy. Rapper Gucci Mane fights the law, and wins. Timbaland’s back, trying to make shock waves. 30 Seconds To Mars is flying high on the wings of operatic emo. And We The Kings try to rule tweendom. Are we missing someone? You bet! We’re ignoring Chris Brown’s new record. In light of what he did to our girl Rihanna, we’re not going to support him here. Whew, let’s brush it off ’cause there are some seriously hot jams going on this week. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »
