30 Seconds to Mars video controversy

30 Seconds to Mars It turns out that Lady GaGa isn't the only one who can stir up controversy with her videos. Alt-rockers 30 Seconds to Mars are receiving some unexpected attention over the 13-minute mini-movie for their latest single, "Hurricane." It seems certain television networks are concerned about the clip's sexual content, and said concern has prompted Jared Leto, the band's singer/frontman and director of the video in question to speak out about the matter, saying, "I just think it’s interesting that when you turn on the news or whatever else catches your interest, how much violence and negativity is available out there. As soon as it comes time for sexuality, it’s a big shock that people are sexual beings. It’s an interesting double standard to me." Considering one of Leto's last directorial efforts, the clip for 30 Seconds to Mars' "Kings and Queens," won an MTV Video Music Award, we are willing to take a chance and check out his latest effort. Both songs are from the highly acclaimed album This is War, released late last year.
