on en apprend tjs un peu plus sur les guys jared on sait que tomo est magnifique héhé je sors je sais
30 Seconds To Mars visited Moscow for the first time! BRAVO did an exclusive interview with these guys inside one of the best hotels in Moscow.
BRAVO: Hey guys! How do you feel here in Russia? Jared: Amazing! We all grew up during the Cold War between the USA and the USSR, and our media and press were constantly telling us these myths and stories about your country. That's why coming to Russia, to your great nation, is so interesting for us.
BRAVO: So if you remember the myths of Cold War times, did you have a feeling tonight that KGB is still watching you? Tomo: Yeah, it was a little scary – spies everywhere... (laughs) Actually everything was fine.
Jared: It's not that we were afraid of Russia and Russian people. We were afraid that one of our leaders – American or Soviet one – would push the button and we'd all be blown up to hell. Our world was on the edge of nuclear war.
BRAVO: All is well that ends well. Have you visited the Red Square today? Tomo: Yes, we'd been there yesterday evening and today. It was cold and deserted yesterday. Today there was a swarm of people but still very cold. When I looked at all that, I had a feeling that the Kremlin is not real, like a toy or something!
Jared: And I'm going to visit it today and check it out.
BRAVO: Tomorrow you're performing at the MUZ-TV Awards show. Aren't you frustrated that you're playing at such a pop ceremony?
Jared: Honestly, we don't really know that it's gonna be a pop ceremony. We're here to play our music and then leave. We think of it as a great opportunity to perform in Russia and say hi to all Russians.
BRAVO: Jared, you said once that your lyrics are not always positive because your life it not that beautiful...
Jared: It is beautiful!
BRAVO: OK. So what's the most beautiful thing in your life?
Jared: The most beautiful thing in my life... (smiles and looks at Tomo) Tomo is the most beautiful thing in my life! (Tomo stirs his coffee and smiles contently) It's also great to play music and tour around the world... Sure, it can be exhausting but some things are just wonderful.
Tomo: We have a chance to do what we like the best... Many people can only dream about it, and few of them can actually do that.
BRAVO: You know, Russian authorities are going to forbid teenagers to look like goths, emo and rockers at school... What do you think about it? Tomo: I think these prohibitions would only make things worse. You can't possibly control the teenagers!
Shannon: If they'd forbid them to express their thoughts, emotions and rebel this way, then people will express their negative feelings other ways, dangerous ways such as violence. People might get aggressive. They might fight and kill each other... It's horrible and dangerous. So this idea of prohibitions won't make it into life.
BRAVO: And did you guys have such problems at school?
Shannon: Oh yeah. When I was in 8th grade, I wore a skirt. When teachers forbad me doing it, I began to drink beer and frig around.
Jared: Of course, we're not going to promote anything in your country, but I think this idea is totally stupid.
BRAVO: So do we!
Jared: I'm sure your government has a lot of other problems which need their attention.
BRAVO: You're right... By the way, what do you think "emo" is? Shannon and Tomo: We don't know and we don't consider ourselves as ones.
Jared: It's just a word to describe a group of people who share same interests and ideas. This term appeared in the States but now, as it'd spread over other countries, it has got a different definition. Emo is like a mix of punk, grunge, rave and gothic. In fact I'm against all these terms. You can just say "person" instead of "emo"!
BRAVO: Oh, speaking of grunge... Have you guys heard that Curt Cobain's ashes are missing?
Everyone: What?! No way! No, we didn't hear about it.
Jared: That is so horrible. We haven't been told about it.
Tomo: Some people made a good fortune out of it.
BRAVO: And do you want to be cremated after death?
Shannon: I would decide it after I'm gone.
Jared: I'd like my body to be roasted and fed to hungry people. (looks serious)
BRAVO: Tell us what you do to save the world.
Jared: We do many things... It's great to have a chance to make announcements via our site and to reach many people. We're going to use this opportunity frequently...
Shannon: I save energy – I always turn off the lights when I go out the house and pull all plugs from the outlets. I did it today when I left my room too.
Tomo: I turned off the TV.
Jared: I have a thing in my house that determines how much energy is consumed by every device. And can you believe this, the most expensive one was my toaster! During one month when it's plugged, it consumes the energy which costs 7$. And I have a water-saving device in my shower. (turns to the manager) Can we turn off a couple of light bulbs here?
Shannon: I have a "environmental safe" carpet in my house.
Jared: We try to have things made of environmental safe material in out studio. Oh, by the way, I thought that I could only dream of it, but I've seen a car that uses gas: one баллон for 300 miles. I'm going to buy it.
BRAVO: That's cool! Thanks for the interview, guys!
Jared: Come and see us tomorrow! You have a nice dress, by the way.
