Jared Leto Gives Carol and Me a Bath


A blood bath that is! Last night the wonderful Carolina Valdez Miller and I attended the 30 Seconds to Mars concert. The theme: BLOOD BALL! And bloody it was! Here's a clip of Jared Leto spraying the audience with blood.

Carol and I sang at the top our lungs, jumped up and down with thousands of people, and stayed up to the wee hours talking about writing.

Before the last song of the concert, Jared announced that anyone that crowdsurfed to the front could come onstage with them. We were right by the front barrier, so I swung my leg over but I couldn't climb over! Before I changed my mind, fans behind me heaved me over to the other side. I sang chorus to "Kings and Queens" with about 30 other rabid fans onstage with the band. Unfreakingbelievably fun!

Thank you, Carol, for being my date to the Blood Ball! Carol is as sweet in person as she is on her blog! 30 Seconds to Mars was AMAZING, and so is Carol!

Dude. You are AMAZING! I can't believe you crowd surfed. That takes you to a whole new level of cool. Then you sang with my boyfriend and he sprayed you with blood!

You're my idol. :)

James Garcia Jr said...

Hello again, Kelly. I was going to sing Neil Diamond just now, but I'm sure you're much too young for that!!
The reason I came by was to inform you that you've won an award. Stop by when you can and pick it up. Thanks.
