"People like to watch others, celebrate other peoples’ failures, who’s cheating on who, who’s getting cast off or kicked out. It’s all kind of ridiculous. Maybe it’s a form of people not wanting to take a closer look at themselves, you know? They want to focus on this other stuff so their thoughts are pulled away.
We can analyze it and discuss it for a while, but I mean, the violence on the news is insane. I just think people need to get their priorities straight. We’re killing our minds, we’re killing the environment, people just need to stop. We need to breathe, stop focusing on our Blackberrys, iPhones and iPads; everything is just a distraction. We need to focus on the community and ourselves. And honestly, I think that’s something that 30 Seconds To Mars does really well. We have this sense of community and respect for people that listen to us, and vice versa, and it’s refreshing."
