Jared Leto and his band 30 Seconds to Mars have released a short film called City Of Angels, and not only is there music video-worthy imagery in the piece, but they sit down and have surprisingly candid conversations with stars like Lindsay Lohan and Kanye West.
Kanye starts by listing a few buzzwords that remind him of Los Angeles, one of which is "Kim." The rapper then adds, "This city took my mother, but it also gave me my child ... The City of Angels is my paradise, my nightmares and my dreams."
So what about the way he's demonized by the press? "People let their frustrations out on me," he says. "My name is Kanye West, but actually I'm one of the few people whose middle name is motherf***ing ... People want fame, and I would never tell a person to not want that because it's f***ing awesome, actually."
Lindsay opens up to Jared about her struggles over the years as well, and based on her honest response, it sounds like she's matured a lot over the last few months. "The City of Angels is where I was able to find myself again, the real me," she reveals. "I've disappointed myself for most of my life. To not be like, 'wake the f*** up, look what you have. This is what you wanted.'"
