Even Jesse McCartney thinks Jared Leto is the whole package!
Check out what else he has to say about our favorite man in our latest interview!
Some say only fools fall in love.
I say, if you never make a fool out of yourself, you aren't living.
For a while I was living life out of the same boring old novel that lost that amazing book smell.
redundant sentences, boring characters, a downhill plot and mundane scenery.
I finally finished that book, an turned it in for a new one. This new book has a lot of blank pages leaving room for imagination and my own creation. No one is writing it for me for once. It is not a sequel to the previous book. All new characters, a new plot, new scenery and no grammar rules.
Everything is so refreshing, I am not being forced into being apart of something that only brings misery. I am learning how to weed out the "weeds" in my life.
I now understand that saying that holding onto the past only hinders your future. It's a liberating feeling.
Someone came into my life that threw me for a loop. I never once thought I wasn't ready for something until now.
the word "ready"? Are we ever really "ready"? I hate that. These restrictions we put on ourselves to allow us to be "ready" for something.
This happened out of no where and has brought me back to ME. I now see how lost I have been for a minute. Caring about things that DONT matter. Crying about people and circumstances that are so unimportant that it now makes me laugh.
How scary is that that a person can do that to you? Make you believe that you are something you are not?? Brainwashing. It exists. totally lol
So now, realzing all of this in a month, I'm making the necessary changes to keep writing this fucking incredible new book. Taking initiative in getting rid of everything and anything that has ever held me back. I am moving away from nostalgia. Throwing things out, changing my residence, deleting everything that has kept me from this moment of clarity.
Sometimes it just takes 1 person to help you see all this. I don't think they will ever realize what good they have done for me, & hopefully won't find it overwhelming. But then it goes back to the point of, then what's the point of living if you can't just fully be YOU.
We try so hard now a days to conform into groups of friends, social circles, being accepted and "liked" online, in real life etc that we forget to live for ourselves. So what I am trying to say in this rant, rather than complaining about everything and everyone, wake the fuck up and take charge.
You hate your friends? GET NEW ONES
Is your boyfriend a dick? GET RID OF HIM
we are all too young, even if you are 68 years old.
Life is short. Go live it damnit.

Last week I got the opportunity to head over to the Pop Trigger studio to do some co-hosting with the cast of Pop Trigger! My good friend Sam is the host of the show and I was so excited to be back!! We did 3 episodes and an interview of me :) So weird not to be asking the questions!!
But I'll shut up now, in hopes you will go watch it and listen to me talk then! I discuss some funny stuff and all my new endeavors!
I read this article someone wrote about Jared Leto today and it was so beautiful. Yes, I have a crazy love for him that I can't explain haha, BUT reading his articles, posts, and watching his documentaries he has SO much to say. He asks so many questions and that's what makes him different from everyone else. He is so successful, and I am not talking about career wise, I am talking about the way he thinks and sees the world. It is really fascinating to me. He doesn't give a shit, but also cares so much. I think we should all live a little more "Jared Leto-like"
Below is an excerpt from the article that was my favorite.
The fact is: Jared Leto doesn’t do what you are supposed to do and he gets away with it. Makes films when he wants to. Records when the time is right. It might be luck, it might be talent, it could be hard work, or it could just be fueled by the naïve optimism that comes from a once-broke Louisiana kid who was told early on that being creative might not make you any less broke, but it might make being broke a little less shitty. It’s why his eyes are wide and blinking them is a waste of precious time. There’s too much to take in, too much to see. Fuck Google Earth. Technology is a weed. It blocks pathways.
“This is a crazy time in my life, but it’s a focused time,” he says. “It’s not like it’s out of control. You only get to do this once and in this case once may be the only time you get to do it. It’s a funny way to say it, but it’s kind of true. I’m acutely aware of that and very respectful of the path I’m walking down. I’m glad that this happened to me now and not when I first started. It’s a really good thing.”

No breakup, birthday, "time of the month" will ever be the same soon thanks to Ben & Jerry's...
They are coming out with a NEW ice cream line "CORE" basically it has a column down the middle of the pint that is a core center of fudge, raspberry jam, or caramel. GENIUS. Changing the game of ice cream
I don't know about you but I'll first stand in the aisle for too long trying to even pick out what one I want to indulge in, then when I finally make this life changing decision, I sit and pick out the chocolate fish, cookie dough or caramel bites to make the perfect scoops.
I feel like they read my mind and answered all my prayers, because now with this new design every scoop and bite is going to be perfect.
Chocolate Peanut butter fan?? Have no worries they are about to blow your mind.
I am the most excited for Hazed and Confused which is chocolate hazelnut ice cream with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core that is like CREAMY NUTELLA.
All of our lives are about to change and those nights on the couch with Ben & Jerry are about to be even more blissful.
duh duh duhhhh
The unanticipated holiday all singles dread, couples stress about, and married people forget lol.
From a personal perspective and putting my business out there, I will be spending this Valentines Day alone. and oh so happy lol. I luckily enough, will be out of town working the whole weekend, unable to break my 2 month long sobriety of looking at my exboyfriend's social media sites (GO ME! talk about self control lol) to see who his new flavor of the month is....
I'm trying to recall what I did last year when I "was in love".... and nothing comes to mind.
so I guess that is a good situation to be in, I won't be fixated on an amazing past memory!
But now, here is my issue: having little crushes and "things/flings", what are the rules?? Do you wish someone a Happy Valentines Day? Do you expect a gift? A date? Flowers? Do I do something for someone? HELP!
I am sure a couple of us are in this boat, or even madly in love with our significant other and completely clueless as what to do/give on this so called special day. Which I just think personally is the most overrated stupid holiday ever lol. I will stay off instagram and twitter all day, I can google image roses if I want to see pictures of them that bad.
So in my opinion on people in my situation, don't stress the small stuff, wish that guy a Happy Valentines day with a little :) emoji and say have a good day today or something like that, and lets just hope he doesn't send one to you in a mass text with 3 other girls . . . :I
If some guy asks you on a date or decides to give you something, don't feel awkward or uncomfortable that maybe you didn't think of anything to do, there is always next year... lol
Go on that date, accept that flower and enjoy being loved for that day! Also, don't expect anything from anyone, I've done that before then just completely lost all hope in life haha
FEB 14th IDEAS!:
Maybe have some friends over for a potluck/game night
Burn old pictures of your ex,
watch rom coms
laugh all together about ridiculous dating stories!
sit on tinder or something and right and left swipe each others phones
surround yourself with people you love and that love you back, rather than having a pity party population of 3 on your couch with you and Ben & Jerry...
"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe this happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you.. on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never ever gave up hope."
"Don't waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all."
It all comes down to having respect. Respect for yourself.
This little quote has been really helpful to me lately with some things in life. We as humans are so special individually and so many times we forget that and sacrifice our sanity, happiness, and self worth for others. I'm going to be honest, we are all really smart, and you know when someone doesn't give two poops about you. Think about that one person, friend, ex, anyone that made you so mad and they know those buttons to press to get a rise out of you. Those people know how to bring out the worst in you, and don't deserve to be in your life. If they have the ability to turn you into a monster, they have no business or PRIVILEGE to be in your life. end of story!
So instead of screaming, crying, lashing out, wishing the worst for someone, losing sleep and your voice. Do nothing.
holy shit right? That is SO hard. Especially for me.
But I think about it like this now, wasting all that energy and time and tears on something or someone is pointless. They don't care about you for even making you feel like this, so why give them the gratification of you hurting.
Pick and choose who deserves to be touched by how special you are.
Because you ARE AMAZING and ONLY AMAZING humans should be in your life.
And those that are too messed in the head to see those amazing people, well I feel sorry for them and you should too.
Open your eyes, ears and heart to all the incredible people around you. Don't be egotistical or selfish. Don't settle for less because it's comfortable, don't hold onto nostalgia or memories because it makes you feel safe. Go make new ones with new people who love you :) every part of you, your words and your silence xo
Go forth this week and KICK ASS
