Jared Leto showed up to this year’s camp-themed Met Gala in a Gucci outfit that included a a red satin gown, 10 lbs of crystals, and an exact copy of his own head staring vacantly into the ether. It was the kind of moment of pure creepiness that no doubt made a whole lot of people either scream or shudder before telling him, “Ew, get rid of that thing!” As it turns out, that head did eventually vanish, but Jared Leto is not sure where it went to.
Jared recently spoke to GQ about his working relationship with Gucci and the Gucci wardrobe he has brought with him on his most recent tour with Thirty Seconds to Mars. Jared is kind of Gucci’s Ronald McDonald at the moment, and yes that is a joke about him looking like a clown. But who cares about what Gucci blouse Jared will be wearing when he recruits his newest cult members, the big question is what happened to that head. When asked what he did with the head, Jared answered:
“Honestly, I have no idea. I think someone may have stolen it. If anyone out there finds it, bring it into your nearest Gucci store in exchange for a pair of dirty sneakers.”
That head really could be anywhere. Maybe it jumped in a cab and got the as far away from the Met Gala as possible because it couldn’t take any more head jokes. Maybe it was kicked across the room by an angry Madonna after the head refused to tell her the secret of how its skin looks so smooth and lifelike. Or perhaps Jared rolled it under the table when he realized it was getting more attention than him.
One thing is for sure. Jared does not want that head back. The kind of person who would steal a custom-made replica of Jared Leto’s head is definitely some kind of freak. Which means Gucci employees should be prepared to see that head return one day in truly questionable condition with any manner of damage. Because the kind of weirdo who steals Jared’s plastic head would definitely trade it in for a pair of what they believe to be Jared’s old, stinky dirty sneakers.
