So, Jared Leto posted this photo of himself with an American flag and a “big patriotic beard” at the Democratic National Convention on his Facebook page, and it’s bringing me such a potent mix of confusion and delight that I had to share it with you. God bless America, indeed. [Facebook] Keep reading »

Jesus Christ, Jordan Catalano. You are such a disappointment.
Well Jared Leto, try as you might, you’ve made it to 40. That’s not very rock star of you, of course, but here we are — a 40-year-old man wearing sunglasses indoors and strutting around in pleather and sequins like it’s no big deal. It seems, Mr. Leto, that you’re primed to be America’s next Steven Tyler. Can a stint on a popular reality singing show be far behind? Either way, enjoy your special day as only you can – probably by bleaching your hair and decadently drinking bottle upon bottle of Patron. We’ll busy ourselves by looking at your worst fashions.
Another day, another epic hunky slideshow from theBERRY. This time, ’90s heartthrobs. I am going to just admit right now that I totally hearted Jonathan Brandis in “Ladybugs.” RIP. Read more…
This week brought us a (not so) Secret fashion show, shopaholic cities, supermodel sisters, and smuggled shoes. Read on for a roundup of the style stats… Keep reading »
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. Which is why I find it especially egregious that you’ve grown up to be the Jared Leto that you are today. The douche-y, guyliner-wearing Jared Leto that fronts MTV2 mainstay band 30 Seconds to Mars and insists on dressing like an utter and complete tool.
This may be a controversial and somewhat politically incorrect opinion, but I’ll just say it: Jared Leto has aged to look like a female-to-male transsexual. There is something that happens when a dude is too pretty, and his face refuses to age up and out of that, which makes him seem just kind of strange looking. And that’s the Leto Effect. Just look at him in this Hugo Boss ad for proof.
James Franco, on the other hand, seems to have actually discovered his jawbone. See this new Gucci ad? His face has filled out and gone from rough to smooth since his “Freaks and Geeks” days. Don’t worry, I still think he’d be really annoying to hang out with. But at least he’s not prettier than me. (Gah, I can’t believe I said something nice about James Franco).
Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain‘s death/suicide and Jared Leto marked the sad occasion by releasing this bizarre video in which the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars singer performs Nirvana‘s “Pennyroyal Tea.” Um, dressed as Cobain. Apparently, he made the video awhile ago, when he was hoping to be cast in a rumored biopic about the rock star, but decided yesterday was the appropriate day to post it on the web for the masses to enjoy. (He never actually submitted it as an audition tape.) I’m not sure I agree that career-furthering, self-indulgent cosplay is the best way of paying tribute to one of rock’s most brilliant and tragic figures. What do you think?

Yesterday, Simcha alerted us to Jared Leto’s newly blue ‘do. This bright shade of turquoise (or “Mint Blue,” as the Facebook page dedicated solely to Jared Leto’s hair calls it) is one of my favorite colors — even when it’s not attached to a gorgeous man’s face. After the jump, I’ve collected some bright blue clothing and accessories to help us all bring a little Leto into our lives … Keep reading »
