Have you seen the press conference in Ischgl, Austria? I just saw it and the only one talking one more time is J. SL and TM was just sitting there like some forniture or something. Why is that?
Please don’t take this as snarky, I don’t mean it to be at all - but darling, was that the first time you’ve seen them in an interview-format, on video, as a trio?
it’s pretty letostyle (that’s Letostyle, Jared-Letostyle) that Jared takes the lead in most (if not all) interview-type dealios.
obvs this is no reflection on tomo or shannon’s capabilities to handle the press - not at all. i just think Jared’s natural talents as an actor and frontman make him a lot more at ease to field questions from press - especially in a conference-like situation, where you sometimes don’t know where questions are going to come from next.
doesn’t hurt that he’s insanely witty and doesn’t mind listening to himself chat.
also, let’s be honest: most press when meeting 30stm, is expecting jared to be the one answering the questions – again, given the fact he is an internationally-recognized actor and the lead singer/frontman of the band.
i think the boys get this and let jared do his thing.
this isn’t always the case, of course.
like any relationship, i’m sure they can read one another incredibly well and know when to help the other out.
catch jared on an off-day, or shannon on an “on” day – and either Shannon or Tomo are more than able to jump in and handle things. i’ve witnessed a chatty-shannon at a couple of occasions in m&gs (as well as a nearly-mute Shannon, and a missing-Shannon) and obvs we know Jomo together is magic (i.e. Church of MARS VIP bonus acoustic show, and what I’m sure MARS in Moscow on VyRT will give us too). Tomo can match Jared wit for wit fo’sho - like none other.
so, no worries.
s & t are no pieces of furniture. they’re just letting Jared be great.
……..tho. if Shannon and Tomo and Jared were furniture pieces - what do we think they would be?
(i’m a bit of an interior design junkie.)
i see shannon being a 1961 Eames Lounge & matching ottoman:
sleek. minimalist but lived-in. vintagely sexy.
i see tomo being a roche bobois urban sofa:
easily adjusts to a different setup depending on the whatever the situation may be; casual but structured. tons of pillows for comfy hockey-viewings.
and my darlingdoll, jared is totes a Phillipe Starck Louis Ghost Chair:
ahead of its time. modernly quirky. a spin on formality. acrylic - vegan. perfect for a home where you want the attention on the artwork, not on the furniture. tho the furniture itself is considered art too…
that was fun. let’s do this again. xo.
