Photos, that I made in the first row during last Love Lust Faith +
Dreams show in Athens, Greece, Malakassa, 30/09/2015. It was
unforgettable, and now I think that is was the best Thirty Seconds to
Mars show where I have ever been.
Thanks for inspiration, love, goodwill and passion, Jared.
You all think Louis is a multimillionaire that can't come out of the closet because contract, but a multimillionaire lost a custody battle is farfetched?
I can’t believe we have to go over this argument every single fucking time. What we believe is that Louis signed a contract with an image clause that basically made it possible for his label to build his entire public persona from the scratch, and that, YES, includes the way his sexuality is perceived. It’s not discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation because, technically, they hired him. But artists RARELY, if not ever, have the upper hand (or any hand at all) in contract negotiations, especially when they come out of a talent show like The X Factor. Even when they re-signed in 2013, do you think they had really THAT more leverage? Have you seen the TIU slides from the Sony hack? All of their public personas are crafted.
Do you think that his deal with the Doncaster Rovers went to hell because *reasons* or because someone else owned his name and they fucked him over?
Have you literally ever seen 30 Seconds to Mars’ schedule since they signed with EMI? Album, tour, movie, album, album, tour. They got a Guinness World Record for the highest number of shows for in 3 years or shit like that. Jared Leto got to the point of COUGHING BLOOD, he was so overworked, he got up on that stage while he had flu, fever, any shit imaginable, and we as fans? We thought he did that because he was dedicated to his job even if he was so sick at times that be barely sang at all. And he is, don’t get me wrong, but to that point? When their last album with EMI, Love Lust Faith and Dreams, came out, they toured until… Last year, maybe? That made it almost 6 years or continuous touring, amidst a lawsuit against their own label that they NEVER WON even if their contract was technically illegal in California. And what’s worse is that fans attacked HIM for how shit their shows were at times, because HE was sick and he sang anyway, and because THEY kept announcing tours. Them, not their label.
There are documentaries. Interviews. Essays. Books. It’s all out there. We aren’t making up anything. The reason why he is forced does not lay in the incompetence of his layers but in his contract. He did agree to babygate, we believe, but on different terms, probably presented as a short-term thing, and that then he was fucked over. Again.
Meanwhile, you believe that he’s a millionaire with no contractual obligations, a free professional, and, yet, has no power or leverage to surround himself with good lawyers that could help him reach a better custody agreement. More than that, you believe that he’s a millionaire whose lawyers didn’t even advice him to take a paternity test. And that’s not even taking into consideration all that doesn’t make sense with babygate itself.
