No hard feelings? After Jared Leto completely trashed Taylor Swift and her music, the Thirty Seconds to Mars singer quickly apologized! Despite saying he didn’t ‘give a f*ck’ about Taylor, Jared claims he actually thinks she’s ‘incredible’ and he’s deeply sorry for his comments. Click to see.
It might have been just a sick joke by Jared Leto, 43, all along. After all, the Oscar-award winning actor will famously play The Joker in the Suicide Squad movie. But nobody was laughing Jared dragged Taylor Swift, 25, and her music, so he decided to apologize!
“The truth is,” Jared wrote in an apologetic tweet on Dec. 7, “I think [Taylor] is amazing [and] an incredible example of what’s possible.” This statement from Jared came hours after a video of him badmouthing Taylor was published online. It seemed Jared felt the need to say he was sorry for his harsh criticism. “If I hurt her or her fans, my sincerest apologies.”
Wow. Jared has changed his tune from the video where he said, “I mean, f*ck [Taylor.] I don’t give a f*ck about her.” During the edited video clip, Jared and reportedly one of his Thirty Seconds To Mars bandmates were in a Los Angeles studio, listening to tracks from Taylor’s 1989 album. You can get Taylor’s 1989 or Thirty Seconds To Mars’ Love Lust Faith + Dreams on Amazon.
One by one, Jared listened and critiqued Taylor’s songs. He totally shot down “Welcome To New York,” before making fun of the Sia-beat on “Blank Space.” He even accused Tswizzle of ripping off Charli XCX. And when he heard “Style,” Jared had a blank, creepy smile on his face. Seems he has that Joker grin nailed down.
Maybe he didn’t want to face the wrath of Taylor’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris? Whether he’s defending Taylor from her arch-nemesis, Katy Perry, going to war with Zayn Malik over her or shooting down breakup rumors, Calvin is quick to jump to his girlfriend’s side. Perhaps Jared’s quick apology was a chance to avoid a Calvin-sized ball of stress?
Either way, though fans won’t see a Taylor/Thirty Seconds to Mars collaboration anytime soon, it seems by Jared’s apology that one can respect Taylor’s accomplishments even if you’re not a fan. A very mature response from Jared – no need for any bad blood between them!
