sometimes jared can be so problematic ah 

what do you mean? how is he being problematic ah

this message/appeal went out on twitter to @30SECONDSTOMARS’s 1.72 million followers…

not all of whom were at camp (not nearly) and it is entirely unclear (to me, at least, but I don’t think I’m alone) if a one minute long video of “Purple Rain” is part of the “unfinished material” – i.e., a new unreleased cover, maybe? – or not. So… ???

I’m pretty sure the request is regarding (mainly) the summit material (which we were warned multiple times against filming in any form) – and full-song concert footage (because they are trying to sell the concerts on VyRT – and who wants to pay for the concerts when they’ve watched them 86 times on YouTube and tumblr?).

Chloe Bartoli posting a min (or less) of Jared singing “Purple Rain” on Instagram isn’t really a *leak* and all the fangirls reporting her likely absolutely know this. It’s kind of disgusting that jealous fangirls are using this as an opportunity to attack her, again. And they should know by now – that ain’t no way to “endear” yourself to Jared or Mars. In fact, it’s gonna get you blacklisted. And really? It just makes you look sad af.

It’s really not ok to tear into Jared for inviting his friends to watch the Mars concerts – just because they happen to be women.

Why are people not upset for Shan inviting his friend Jason up to his drum-set to learn some tricks during drum circle? Cause he’s a man?

Jared isn’t inviting his friends up to the mic to sing along during the shows. They’re sitting off to the side.
Shannon’s girlfriend tagged along to his two events I was at – but no one seems to be dragging her… And Sian and Talia were walking around camp on Sunday and helping where they could – even tho Jared & Shan had left. So, it’s like, the hate & throwing around of “freeloaders” over Jared’s friends is just so uncalled for.

And every band everywhere for every show always has a special section reserved for friends, family, associates. Just because Jared’s happens to be a majority women doesn’t mean anything other than those are the people he’s closest to in his life.

Honestly, seeing these women all there to support him – the Bentson sisters introducing their mom to the Langdon twins, Chloe and Talia and Lanni laughing together – all of them sitting there watching him and cheering for him – like that’s ultimately just a group of people who just adore him and show it by showing up. When many people don’t.
And he needed that. It’s clear he’s feeling really, really fragile right now, especially after Suicide Squad. He needed to be reminded he’s more than whatever happened in Hollywood or was left on a cutting room floor.

Whoever Jared wants in his personal cheering section is his prerogative. Not anyone else’s.
…and from where I was seated – it just looked like a small group of women who are now all friends who support one another too – because they each honestly care for one person. And it’s hard for me to see anything wrong with that.

And yea, full-song concert footage should be reported. If you recorded for your own personal viewing – or sharing privately between friends – more power to you. But post that to YouTube or Tumblr or wherever and be prepared for it to be found and reported. Cause they need to keep shit special to sell VyRTs. That’s just how it is and it’s not anything new.

Honestly I dont care if they were with their friends. There is still people who believe that she sleep with the “lead singer” WOW. Like u know everything that they do, right? I stopped to follow such a fangirling blogs time ago. So I didnt even know that Shannon has a gf?! Btw I just wanna say that when I was at Mars concert 2 years ago they report my video, basically the only “new” song was witness and they reported another song, so they dont want that we upload the live videos of all their songs?! While on youtube there are still videos about “new songs” so what we have supposted to do? I mean If i wanna watch a live video I cant cause they dont want? I understand this about camp mars but not that they report videos of their concerts. 

Super basic question for me would be, in terms of what goes out there for fans of the band to engage with, does the inclusion of their ‘friends’, or certain friends, add value to the overall Mars experience, or no? Because the decision to make them a public part of things is, well, exactly that: a decision. A choice.

I honestly don’t even know how their friends being there or not is even a thing?

I’ve never expected a band or singer to not have their special section at a performance or show. It’s something you just accept. Jared may appreciate the echelon and tell them he loves them and they’re family, but it’ll never be the same sort of love or family he has with the people he lets into his life. And that dissonance is just called celebrity.

People know & follow Lady Gaga’s friends who are nowhere near famous – other than just their being close to Gaga. Same with the Kardashians. Or Beyonce. Or Selena Gomez or Bieber or Harry Styles or whoever. It’s more than anything a celebrity thing. And the idea that these people closest to them know these idols of ours at a level very few do, it’s intriguing. And maybe following them or interacting with them then puts them at a favorable insider-y place with the celebrity they want to know most about. Some of the no-names can get a bit of the celebrity feels and either relish in their position and fan the flames or they disengage and go quiet.

However the issue here for Mars and Jared is that Jared is the object of many girls’ affections – and the fact he tends to BFF with girls.

Jared has been a lot more guarded about his friendships over the last two years. He used to be much more open about the women close to him – but because their proximity to him puts them in some sort of social media danger – I think he’s held back sharing more of his private moments because he just doesn’t want to constantly open them up for being torn apart. Cause shit is brutal and this whole bartoli-drama right now is just another example of people getting frustrations out over not being near him by attacking people in his life who are.

Whether or not anyone knows of or understands the extent of Jared or Shannon’s personal relationships is so beyond the point. People just need to accept these men have people in their lives who they will care for in a much stronger, intimate way than they physically can for fans of their music. Because Mars is Mars and music is music but their lives are their lives. Yes, there’s some overlap, but they’re human beings first and foremost and while they love and appreciate the echelon – fans need to know they’re just not entitled to more than what’s given. That’s it.

No context needed

GRIGGS X JOKER I NEED IT

It’s even better in motion… @batsybatboy & @thedesertviking.

(Literally my fave scene. Mainly because Ike Barinholtz’s background is in improv and it felt like he was the only one who could really keep up with Jared’s choices… But also because Joker cowgirl’ing another man whilst caressing his throat. Yanno. The ushhh.) 

Bless whoever’s instagram I sourced this from… 

ETA – since WB already found my 20-second old YouTube upload & blocked it(? but didn’t??) – here’s the link on IG just in case: https://instagram.com/p/BIxgJDgh7NZ/
