A fan of actor-turned-rock star Jared Leto literally lent him an ear.
The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, 41, revealed to Xfm's Phil Clifton that the weirdest gift he ever received was a severed ear. "Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move," he said. "The note just said, are you listening? I never knew who it was, who's missing their ear out there. I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace!"
He added, jokingly, "Just don't put your entire body in a case and send it to us."
Then on Monday night, Leto posted an Instagram pic of the actual ear, writing: "ARE YOU LISTENING?"
"The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people," Leto, 41, said of The Echelon. "Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan, you expect gifts on your arrival. You get all kinds of wonderful things."
