Jared Leto says first reaction to VMA Noms was “Holy f—ing’
HollywoodNews.com: 30 Seconds to Mars’ lead singer Jared Leto was the last person to find out about the band’s four Video Music Award nominations for their “Kings and Queens” clip.
Leto told MTV, “I was in Auckland, and I woke up after a long slumber, looked over to my BlackBerry, and noticed that the red light seemed to be flashing with an added urgency. So I reached over and quickly found out that this was a day that would go down in history for this little band of ours.”
He continued, “I was completely blown away. It was so unexpected that my first reaction was, ‘Holy f—ing sh– f— f— f—!’ We had no idea this was the way these things worked. It was the furthest thing from our minds. And then someone sent me the list of artists we’re nominated with, and we couldn’t believe that either. It really is exciting.”
30 Seconds to Mars racked up more nominations than any other rock act. Leto added, “We’re so proud that a video that was an epic experience for us was recognized, because making it was a creative and beautiful journey that we still talk about fondly. It’s a celebration, because it gives me a chance to say thanks to everyone who means so much to us, largely our fans, but everyone else who has supported us. It hasn’t always been this way for us. We’ve had to work so unbelievably hard, and we couldn’t have done it without some help.”
