There's a stigma that comes with actors trying their hand at rock and roll, but if there's a case study to follow of how to do it right, 30 Seconds to Mars' Jared Leto may be the one. The rocker downplayed his celebrity and he and the band had to wait out their commercial success until their sophomore set, 'A Beautiful Lie.'
30 Seconds to Mars
When 30 Seconds to Mars finally wrapped up their monster ‘Guiness Book of World Record’ breaking world tour in support of ‘This Is War,’ the future of the band was a bit unknown. Although they never went on record to say they were breaking up, they never denied the claim either - leaving fans to speculate and fear the worst.
MTV's 'Unplugged' was one of the network's most popular shows in the 1990s, when the likes of Nirvana, Hole, Kiss and LL Cool J stripped down and performed acoustically before a live studio audience. It's a cool convention where rock bands show off their "sensitive" side, and the Jared Leto-fronted 30 Seconds to Mars did just that when they recorded an 'Unplugged' session for MTV.
