POP Video: Jared Leto’s Tribute to Kurt Cobain

Jared Leto is, in my opinion, one of the most versatile artists out there.  Both an actor and a musician, and now, we get a little taste of what he could have done as Kurt Cobain.

To commemorate the 17th anniversary of Cobain’s death, Leto posted a video on his website of him dressed as the rocker and singing snippets of ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ and ‘Rape Me’.

Before you get confused as to why Leto would randomly do such a thing, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman explains:

“I heard today was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that…This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…”

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.  It is a touching tribute to the man that basically molded a new generation of teens and young rockers:
