The frontman for 30 Seconds to Mars, Jared Leto, has told XFM that he has received some of the most interesting gifts from fans. In his conversation with XFM, Leto, a former actor who is now a musician, said that he received an ear from a fan one time.
“The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people. Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan, you expect gifts on your arrival. You get all kinds of wonderful things.”
Leto also said the following when speaking with XFM: “Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move. The note just said, ‘Are you listening?’. I never knew who it was, who’s missing their ear out there.”
When he was asked what he did with the body part, Leto jokingly said, “I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace” and then added: “Just don’t put your entire body in a case and send it to us.”
Just last week, the band announced that their new studio album, which is titled ‘LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS,’ is scheduled to be released on May 20, 2013. This will be their fourth studio release and first since 2009. That album was called ‘This Is War.’
