Anonymous said: Individual remarks on Jared, Tomo and Shannon what do you think?
Jared: Arrogant asshole. Incredible ability to exploit money from every avenue possible. Talented actor. So - so front man.
Shannon: Super laid back. Super talented. Bit of an asshole. My favourite as a person.
Tomo: rude, bullheaded, over the top, a little annoying, not a totally bad guy.
Anonymous said: Hie! So what music/bands are you listening to now? And who was your favourite in 30 Seconds to Mars before you quit the band? Are you still slowly removing them from your life or did you just go cold turkey? I am asking because I am considering it, but Shannon... I can't leave Shannon. If it were just Tomo and Jared I would not have a big problem with it but Shannon ... I just can't.
I listen to pretty much everything. The new Avenged Sevenfold, Fall Out Boy, Pretty Reckless and A Day to Remember records are some of my favourite ever. But classics like Arctic Monkeys, Motley Crue and Steel Panther never go out of style. (Also honourable mentions to Florence + the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Paramore, Adele and Beyoncé).
I always admired Jared the most because, if you take away the fact you are a fan, he is an incredibly insightful business man. The way he can squeeze profit from every aspect of the band and associated business, but hasn’t garnered critical disapproving, only from some fans, is really impressive and I admire him for that.
I kind of had a few false starts. I can’t remember what they did exactly, but something happened and I was so pissed I unfollowed pretty much every Mars blog. Then I missed them and followed some again. Then I did the same. Now I only follow one ‘news’ Mars blog, and a few others that post a little Mars and but mostly other things I like. That way I still keep up with any important things, but I’m not engrossed like I used to be. I’m much happier that way.
I’d say remove them as much as possible, follow a load of your other interest orientated blogs (if you already don’t) but if you don’t want to let him go completely you can always keep a few Shannon-centric blogs to keep up with him, if it’d make you happy!
Also JESUS FUCKING CHRIST Sons of Anarchy!!! The whole Bohemian Rhapsody sequence was beautiful, but that was brutal 😁😁
kahina-life-love24 said: about the meet and greet i am agree with the previous comment, in the meet and greet that i've done in Cannes not a look for me, not a little hi or a thank you for coming, no soundcheck and merch was not great and i pay that 300 euros so for me it's not Worth it. In the vyrt chat last time he said that if we want for him to play buddha for mary we have to buy a thousand tickets and for me it's like these old songs (and the best ones) were shitty songs. he lost himself.
I’m sorry you had a shitty experience 😯
Anonymous said: I love 30stm and all, honestly they're my favorite band and i will love them 5ever but lets be honest, they overprice everything ($400 for a goddamn meet and greet where they barely look happy in the photo? c'mon!) And like you said, there's barely any fan interaction. I also feel like Jared tries and makes 30stm all about him. When i saw them in August, i could barely see Tomo and Shannon (and i was pretty close.) because all the lights were on Jared. Sorry just felt like ranting lol.
You call that a rant? 😉
Anonymous said: can anyone explain me the thing wtih 30stm only wanting to make money?how did you realize that?
It’s a huge thing, and there are loads of indicators depending on how you look at it, but the main issue is the commercialisation of everything.
Want to see Jared sing a song on Vyrt? Buy a ticket. Want to see him play another song? Buy more tickets.
Buy this single/album and I might call you or mention you on twitter! Boom. Loads more albums/singles bought by people desperate for recognition.
Meet + Greets and merch: clothing is up to twice as expensive as comparable bands (£30+ compared to £10-15+). I calculated a conservative estimate that in the second half of the LLF+D tour, AIW took over £3,000,000 PROFIT. Now try and tell me they need to charge those prices for the exclusivity of a few hundred people.
Constant advertising on every account everywhere and very little genuine fan interaction without some kind of benefit for them.
I could go on but I can’t really be bothered. And if I’ve missed anything major recently please feel free to add it.
Anonymous said: However when it comes to what that previous anon was saying about people being a tad too obsessed, I have to agree. While I like seeing 40 year old people enjoying the band and the music, I find it kind of sad when it becomes the only thing they think about etc. the line between being passionate and being obsessed is a thin one to draw I get.
Anonymous said: Okay can everyone stop for a minute and realise that maybe jared genuinely enjoys Chloe & other people's company ? I see everyone saying that their friendship is fake and stuff because she used to work for him but haven't you ever heard of two colleagues getting along and seeing each other outside of their work hours ? Funnily enough no one complains when it's Jamie, because of course people don't imagine they could be sleeping together. Get it in your head that Jared does not belong to you
Anonymous said: Part 3, For a guy who always told he likes privacy it is totally a fail. They create some proximity with fans who become more and more attached to the band, even fanatic. And this is cool for them, because then people will love them enough to spend their time and their money on vyrt, vip packages, merch and worthless stuff.
Anonymous said: Part 2: So imagine these people full of tattoos, when they will realize their idol was only manipulating them to get their money. This ''family thing'' is very dangerous. It is an illusion and if people are completly into it, they get away from reality. Like the illusion fans are close to them, because they show a part of their private life. You know where they go to vacations, what they are doing and with who... Jared's ''friends'' share photographs and videos of jared.
Anonymous said: Part 1: Since you left the mars fandom, I hope you understand me. I am sick when I see all these people spending half of their days on twitter writing about the band, how great they are, how wonderful jared is. There is many people who are absorbed by the madness and they are not all teenagers. There are lot of people who deal with problems in their lives. You previously said Mars was important in your life and that is why you can't let them disappear completly...
