I’ve never really understood the Jared Leto thing. Yes, I’ve watch My So-Called Life and I’ve noted the beautiful hair and piercing eyes, but for some reason he never really did it for me. Until now.
Jared and his band Thirty Seconds to Mars performed a cover of the Rihanna song “Stay” in the Live Lounge on BBC Radio, and it was incredibly beautiful and haunting. The song somewhat lends itself to beautiful and haunting automatically, of course, but Jared’s scratchy, pained, mournful vocals make this version much more desperate and sad. Watch now!
It’s always been a great song to sing alone in your car or in the shower (or a bathtub, as Rihanna does in the video), but next time you do it, try it with some Jared-esque inflections.
What do you think of this version of the song? Have you ever listened to Thirty Seconds to Mars? What’s your favorite song to sing in the shower? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
