Jared Leto got a severed ear in the mail from a fan



30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto shared a gory story with Brit radio station Xfm, telling the tale of the strangest gift he's ever gotten. This is some serious Fight Club stuff right here, folks :

"The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people. Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan -- you expect gifts on your arrival," he said on March 22, according to Us Weekly. "You get all kinds of wonderful things. Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me. That was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move. The note just said, 'Are you listening?' I never knew who it was, who's missing their ear out there."

He took a photo of the alleged ear and posted it on his Instagram account on Monday. He says the thing is real, and it looks pretty much real, so we're going to say it's real enough. We just hope it was the fan's ear, and not some poor idiot who decided he'd listened to enough 30 Seconds to Mars songs.
