Jared Leto as Kurt Cobain singing ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ – Video
Jared says that he’d never shared the video with anyone, but being as yesterday, April 5th, was the 17-year anniversary of Kurt’s passing, Jared felt it was time to pay tribute to Kurt by sharing it with fans.
Jared Leto posted with the video:
“I heard today (April 5) was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that. This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…
- Jared Leto”
Jared sure looks the part, and he does a pretty good job of mimicking Kurt Cobain’s unique, angsty, desperate sounding voice as well.
