Why Dave Grohl is in this this? He is actually kind.Jared Leto should be at least in the top tens. He embarrasses his young fans on stage, he has a big ego, and he is a two-timer. Just because he is a "rock star", it does not mean he should treat his fans badly.
Jared is talented, but he needs to go to therapy. The sad part is he is so handsome that his fans forgets he is a jerk.
