Jared Leto is apologizing to Taylor Swift.

After a leaked video surfaced showing the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman privately criticizing some of the 1989 singer's music during a Los Angeles recording session (to be fair, he compliments some of it as well), Leto took to Twitter on Tuesday, writing, "The truth is I think @taylorswift13 is amazing + an incredible example of what's possible. If I hurt her or her fans my sincerest apologies."

In the video, released by TMZ, Leto listens to and comments on some of Swift's music, before getting back to work, saying, "I mean, f**k her, I don't give a f**k about her. It's whatever works best for us."

Most of Swift's loyal followers seemed to understand the context of the statements, or realized that it's not that big of a deal. One fan said, "He is allowed to have an opinion. So I really don't care if he likes her or not."

"People can be SO DRAMATIC over nothing," another fan wrote. "I'm more angry about someone you trusted leaking the video!! THAT makes my blood boil!!!"

However, some fans did take Leto to task over his comments. One wrote, "Sorry cant hear you over the sound of multiple grammys and sold out tours," while another said, "Jared Leto got caught saying mean things about Taylor Swift's 1989. There are better albums. Jared hasn't written any of them but they exist."

Swift, as of yet, has not responded to the video or the apology. The "Bad Blood" singer is nominated for seven Grammys this year, being beat out only by her collaborator, Kendrick Lamar, who landed 11.

The singer is celebrating her 26th birthday next week, which she revealed in an Instagram post will be "a quiet one."

"I love your enthusiasm," said Swift last week, addressing the Australian press. "But my birthday isn't for two weeks and it'll be a quiet one this year. Let's take it down a notch."
