Jax, The Rock Insider, has the scoop on the craziness of fans in LA.
She drove by the Avalon around 8:30am on her way to work and noticed a gaggle of sad looking, emo-ish fan boys and girls lined up to get into that evening’s show. She pondered who the headliner could be that night…”Fall Out Boy? Hawthorne Heights? AFI?” Nope, nope, and nope. By looking up the club listing on her computer she discovered the inspired fanlove was for…30 Seconds to Mars?!?!? (Yeah I know, it was also news to me that they have fans.)
That makes my stomach turn a little. I mean 30 SECONDS TO MARS? Half those kids probably weren’t even out of diapers when My So-Called Life was on TV–which terrifies me even more. That means they aren’t simply going for the Catalano cheese factor (Frozen Embryos–HOOLLLAAA!)–THEY ACTUALLY LIKE THE MUSIC. I know this is kinda contradictory coming from someone who just posted about Fall Out Boy, but c’mon, 30 Seconds to Mars < x10 Fall Out Boy. I may have LOW standards, but I do have standards.
This also reminds me of the time when I was at Coachella in 2003 and saw Jared Leto with long hair AND A PINK STREAK. I had just come off a two-day My So-Called Life marathon, so I insisted upon taking a photo with him because seriously, how often am I ever watching MS-CL and then running into Leto? 30 Seconds to Mars wasn’t even playing the festival, he was just there hanging out with then-girlfriend Cameron Diaz. Now that Cammy D is dating/practically married to Justin Timberlake, I gotta say: UPGRADE.
