Jared Leto Is Kurt Cobain

On the anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death (April 5), Jared Leto released a video of him dressing up and playing the Nirvana front man. The short was made when Jared heard they were making a Kurt Cobain biopic. Jared wanted to “explore creative possibilities.”

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…

Meanwhile, Courtney Love celebrated Kurt Cobain’s anniversary by not shorting his ashes and getting into a fight with Kelly Osbourne. Osbourne jokingly called Love a crackhead to which Courtney responded: “This girl I know, Kelly Osbourne, I’ve saved her life twice,” ranted Love. “I’ve done CPR, I’ve put things in her boobs. [She was on] Oxycontin, cocaine, foaming at the mouth.” At least we know that quote is authentic. No one can incoherently ramble quite like Courtney Love.

He needs to play Kurt! He can act, he can sing just like Kurt, and he is gorgeous just like Kurt was with those blue eyes. I’m a huge Jared Let and Kurt Cobain fan!
