Jared Leto And Thirty Seconds To Mars Have A Cult On Their Island

Thirty Seconds To Mars is the rock band formed by Jared Leto and his brother Shannon in 1998. Jared is the frontman and is unbearable in his embrace of the quintessential lead singer with a God complex, complete with ornate robes and Jesus hair. I do like a couple of their songs, but in no way would I pay money to travel to Mars Island in Croatia to follow them around in an attempt to feel close to them while surrounded by hundreds of other people.

Mars Island is a three night, all inclusive festival experience. Relax and restore with yoga amongst the trees, take a dip in the pool, catch a midnight screening or gaze at the stars, and catch two intimate performances with Thirty Seconds To Mars. Mars Island is an experience like no other.

All passes include accommodation, meals, snacks, performances, and activities.

The latest Mars Island excursion took place August 9 through 12 and the result is the following tweet and series of pictures emerging on Twitter three days later:

Apparently, the band uses the term cult to indicate a community of like-minded individuals working together for… something? However, I do not think that the people involved in the Mars Island excursion see it as anything but a real, bonkers, white robes and white people, cult.

Really? Him?

I mean, you do know that Lenny Kravitz has a farm in Brazil and you could all be worshipping him instead, right?

What the hell does Jared preach? Sending rats to co-stars? Never go ass-to-mouth? Jordan Catalano was the real star of My So-Called Life? He uses Tresemme on his hair because he’s worth it?

Kravitz is a much more suitable figure for worship, living his best life while growing veggies and rocking out but still maintaining the most laid-back, chill demeanor in the history of ever? And not to toot my own horn, but I am technically an ordained minister and I would be happy to be your Lady Jesus if the price is right. C’mon people, get more picky about your prophets! Choose someone less steeped in grossness for all your cult needs. Be better!

And remember, Jared Leto has an Academy Award, but Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, and Glenn Close do not. HAPPY MONDAY!
