Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman was filmed while listening to '1989' album
Jared Leto has been filmed criticising Taylor Swift‘s music in a video of leaked footage from a recording studio.
The video, first posted by TMZ and available to view below, shows Leto talking about Swift’s ‘1989’ album while it is played on speakers.
“I don’t like this at all – next,” the musician and actor says while listening to album opener ‘Welcome To New York’.
Leto does save some praise for the song ‘Blank Space’, and says he wants to “steal it”, though he does suggest that Swift has copied the vocal style from “Charli XX”, presumably meaning Charli XCX. He also calls ‘Style’ an “interesting little pop song”.
He concludes by saying: “I mean, fuck her, I don’t give a fuck about her. It’s whatever works best for us.” Watch the video below:
Jared Leto recently hinted that he is making new music with his band Thirty Seconds To Mars.
The actor and musician, who has recently been filming Suicide Squad alongside Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne, posted a picture of himself in a recording booth behind a microphone in November. The picture was accompanied by the caption: ‘#MarsIsComing’.
The band released their self-titled debut back in 2002, followed by 2005’s ‘A Beautiful Lie’, 2009’s ‘This Is War’ and 2013’s ‘Love Lust Faith + Dreams’.
The band have been largely inactive since touring with Linkin Park during 2014.
