Leto posted a video on his blog, writing:
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…
Obviously the video has nothing to do with his campaigning for casting in the rumored Cobain biopic. Obviously.
Check out the video below where you can see
a self-indulgent Jared Leto perform Nirvana’s “Pennyroyal Tea,” and “Rape Me”.
