If you didn’t hear yesterday evening – after we’d checked out for the day – we had a good feeling you’d want to wake up to your Jared Leto news.
Yes, the mascara-wearing actor-rocker told AOL he was gay. In an IM interview, no less. At first, the AOLer on the reporter side of the keyboard thought Leto must be kidding; so he asked the question again, wherein Leto compared himself to Morrissey: i.e. he’s been a-sexual for a while, but only recently acknowledged his homo tendencies.
ThirtySecondLeto: I’m gay
TyeinMusic: please tell me you’re serious
ThirtySecondLeto: as a goose.
TyeinMusic: so does this mean that in real life, you were more “Ricky Vasquez” than “Jordan Catalano”?
TyeinMusic: don’t tease me, jared!
TyeinMusic: but wait. back up… are you gay or not?
TyeinMusic: cuz if not, that was SO mean!
ThirtySecondLeto: I’m like Morrissey.
TyeinMusic: and… morrissey’s kinda gay
TyeinMusic: when he’s not being celibate 🙂
ThirtySecondLeto: i thought he was asexual?
TyeinMusic: oh, he’s totally doin’ it now.
TyeinMusic: listen to the new CD 😉
ThirtySecondLeto: good for him. let it all out man
ThirtySecondLeto: if people only knew the real stories…
Good to know it only takes Hollywood starlets like Scarlett Johansson, Claire Danes, and Lindsay Lohan to a turn one.
Now, whether Jared was being serious or going after a Dave Navarro-esque gay PR stunt is yet to be determined. But for now, let us wallow in the bonus point for our side as we honor Leto with Morning Goods status.
