    • Karen Belgrad

      OK, now he’s just messing with us

      • Kent Roby

        Mark my words: we will see him in a rhinestoned crown of thorns before too long! (hopefully with red ruby blood drops!)

      • Ashleigh

        I surely hope so…

    • another_laura

      Proof that they all read T Lo.

      • Thomas

        Or his stylist does!

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      HE READS T-LO. WE ARE BEING PUNKED.

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        I saw this show the night before in Tampa and when he came out (wearing white robes and the crown) I yelled, “Pixie Jesus reads the uncles!!” There was one point where he told the audience to sing along. After, he said, “Jesus Christ, you guys are awesome!” My friends and I just looked at each other like, okay now he’s just screwing with us.

      • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

        Jared Leto reads TLo! Hi Jared Leto! Big fan!

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      Holy shit.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        You took the thought right out of my mind.Wow. If Jared isn’t reading TLo, this is some serious weirdness.

    • Sobaika

      Can’t. Just can not.

    • Funkykatt

      Anyone who is anyone reads TLo

      • Constant Reader

        All the cool kids are doing it.

    • Julie Chase

      HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      I suddenly want him to star in a new version of Jesus Christ Superstar.

      • Lisalady161

        Hah! I thought that during his Oscar speech.

      • smayper

        EXACTLY! I was imagining him singing Gethsemane. Take this cup awaaaaaaay from me…….

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Can Jared double as Pilate? Because I really want to hear Jared belt out “Prove to me that you’re divine, change that water into wine”….but that’s just me.

          • WendyD

            I’m all in for that.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Who else shall we cast in our fantasy version of Jesus Christ Superstar?

            • Dorothy_on_the_yellow_brick_rd

              Yes! I am all for another JC Superstar production. Anne Hathaway as Mary Magdalene…? (We all know she can hold her own when it comes to singing.)

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              OK, Annie as Mary Magdalene. Can we fit Hugh Jackman in somehow?

            • Therese Bohn

              Hugh Jackman would make a great Pilate or Herrod. What bass singer could we get for Caiaphas?

            • Margaret Nikoleit

              Avi Kaplan from Pentatonix! He’s an astounding bass singer.

            • whaddami

              no no no JUDAS!!!!

            • YoungSally

              My neighbor has directed a slew of the road tours over the years…..about ten years ago (before the latest last Ted Neeley tour) he said that Neeley was so old he was going to have to restage the entire production behind a scrim….with fog.

            • formerlyAnon

              Ha!

            • WendyD

              This makes me want to bust out my original British cast recording that has Andrew Lloyd Webber playing keyboards. On vinyl.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              I still have my vinyl recording of this -loved it.

            • Therese Bohn

              Sting as Pontius Pilate.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Yes!!!!

            • whaddami

              oh YES YES YES — THIS!!!! That would be the most fabulous cameo ever. You’d have to keep it absolutely secret though….

          • Therese Bohn

            Actually, it’s Herod that sings that line (“Walk across my swimming pool) Pilate sings the 39 lashes and Pilate’s dream. Maybe a one-man show with Jared in all the parts! ;-)

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              I stand corrected. Why not RPJ in a one man show?

            • Therese Bohn

              :-)

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Think of the costume change possibilities!

          • smayper

            that’s Herod you’re thinking of…

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Indeed it is!

          • YoungSally

            Isn’t that Herod who sings those lines

            – signed I listened to that album too many times as a kid

    • Gatto Nero

      And this is in Florida.
      Think there’ll be any backlash?

      • Thomas

        Well, he’s not really dressed like Jesus, tbh. If he was wearing a crown of thorns there might be mayhem though. But Madonna’s already done that. I’m not sure if there’s much that Madonna hasn’t already done. She’s gone to the well so many times that it’s dried up for all of the other stars.

        • flamingoNW

          That is without question clergy garb, wouldn’t be surprised if someone objected to that.

          • Thomas

            Clergy definitely, but not Jesus. And he’s wearing a crown. He should be wearing a crown of thorns or a mitre if he wants to offend people correctly lol

            • formerlyAnon

              Exactly.

        • Gatto Nero

          Right — I just meant that the clerical gear might be enough to piss people off in a relatively conservative state.

          • not_Bridget

            It’s a Catholic vestment. Those Likely To Get Offended in Florida tend to be Bible Thumpers….

            • Gatto Nero

              Good point.

        • Kent Roby

          Yeah, Madonna has been humping crosses the past 80 years or so.

    • Sarah

      He is HILARIOUSLY RIDONKULOUS. And also a blasphemer, but hey, he wants me to think that.

    • &theJets

      O.M.G. Hilarious.

    • sugarkane105

      I – I’m speechless. I feel like TLo should get a cut from his public appearances now.

    • hughman

      Not today, Satan. Not today.

      • Thomas

        What would have made this even better is if he wore a crown from Burger King.

        • mickiemonkey

          I love the Burger King crown reference so much! xo

      • myandyleigh

        If not now, when?

    • Thomas

      It seems like he has a sense of humor about himself unlike Kanye though. Like I don’t think Jared actually thinks he’s Jesus or a king for that matter, but I’m sure Kanye does.

      • alyce1213

        Kanye thinks he’s God.

        • demidaemon

          I wanted to respond to this, but words fail me.

        • Denise Alden

          Variation on an old joke about doctors: “What’s the difference between Kanye and God? God doesn’t think he’s Kanye.” :)

    • alyce1213

      The sword on his chest forms a “P” — for Pixie, no doubt.

      • Sienamystic

        That’s the Chi Rho, the monogram of Christ.

        • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

          But it definitely doubles for Pixie, here. :)

        • alyce1213

          I know.

        • Miss wks

          Towels too?

    • TM

      You do you, Jared. You do you.

    • Miss wks

      Is that a guitar neck under your choir robe or are you just happy to see me?

    • fursa_saida

      I’m gonna throw up.

    • marlie

      Now he really is f*cking with us. Also, I think this might be a little too much for me.

    • higgledypiggledy

      Bravo, Jared. You get full marks for a) referencing the Uncles and b) trying to bring back Shocking Catholic People. Our outrage hasn’t been relevant since Madonna’s early days! For extra credit, please do your encore in the silver sparkly number with the long fringe and the deep v-neck that Judas wears in the finale of JC Superstar. You would rock the shit out of that outfit. For that matter, just wear it walking down the street. With some Toms.

    • Grefunda

      He’s in the wrong liturgical color.

      • Shelby

        As my priest says, “We’re in the long green of Pentecost.” Get with it, Rocker Pixie Jesus.

        • kimmeister

          No wonder I just saw a Catholic priest in a green garment!

        • Lisalady161

          Pentecost is forever.

        • MissusBee

          Ecclesiastical humor is why I’m here.

          • Shelby

            Amen.

            • Kitten Mittons

              And peace be with y’all

            • katetastrophe

              And also with you.

            • RunAmuck

              It’s “And with your spirit” now. :)

            • katetastrophe

              Whoops. It’s been awhile and old habits die hard.

            • Grefunda

              Totally Episcopalian.

            • marlie

              I can’t get with the new prayers and responses. It’s hard to change when you’ve been saying the same thing over and over again for 30+ years.

            • formerlyAnon

              I’d like to tell myself that’s the reason I can’t do the new responses. Might also be because my actual attendance at church has . . . um . . . declined over the last decade.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Yeah, I can’t get used to the new stuff. I guess this is how people felt after Vatican II. I say what I remember, and I feel very subversive while doing it.

            • marlie

              Ha. Me too!

            • Modeniete

              Back in the 50s it was also “and with thy spirit” before the 70s ushered in the “and also with you” crap.
              Yeah, I know, dating myself. But: pastor’s kid, so I know my liturgy….

            • Therese Bohn

              And with your spirit!

            • colleenjanel

              And also with … Y’all.

        • Bridget Smith

          Actually surprised there hasn’t yet been a dystopian/SF novel that used the term Ordinary Time.

          • formerlyAnon

            Okay, so now I have a brain itch – what relatively recent (to my brain that means in the last 30 years, probably) novel DID use “Something-or-other in Ordinary Time” for its title?

            ETA: I want to say that it’s one of those kind of semi-bleak stories about marriage or family life, with some shreds of redeeming hope at the end if you squint. Like a certain vintage of New Yorker stories were. BUT I could be making that up out of whole cloth.

            • MissKimP

              No Ordinary Time by Doris Kearns Goodwin, perhaps?

            • kimmeister

              Is it “Songs in Ordinary Time” that came out in 1995?

            • formerlyAnon

              Bingo! Thanks for the memory nudge.

          • Shelby

            I would totally read that.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          So we are-in the long green season. Personally one reason I love Advent is that the liturgical color is blue, my favorite.

        • not_Bridget

          He picked it up in the Post-Lent Clearance Sale….

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. But purple is a much better color for stage wear. Pops better.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      This is glorious.

    • MilaXX

      Clearly he’s just trolling us now.

    • PeaceBang

      Priests’ chausibles are a thing now? Good, then Geneva preaching gowns can’t be far behind, and I can start rocking mine as day wear. Thanks Jesus Jared!

      • Grefunda

        It’s a very cheap chausible – I wouldn’t be caught dead in it!

        • AmeliaEve

          Yes!!!! This was actually my complaint. The embroidery isn’t terrible but the fabric looks flimsy and the braid is tacky as hell. The whole point of this kind of look is luxe, and that is like a Halloween costume level of luxury. And the high-low thing with the jeans works better with more high-low contrast. Madonna has set a high bar for on-stage visual blasphemy. I bet Dolce and Gabbana could create some really stunning vestments. Go big or go home.

    • Anna

      Your powers DON’T compel me, RPJ.

    • MrsKrause

      Insane. Not in the good way.

    • ChiKat67

      HAHAHA!!!! Saw this on his instragram feed (he’s actually holding a cross in that photo) and was convinced he was trolling TLo!

    • Imasewsure

      I seriously love this guy… Caftan Pixie Rocker Jesus! He does love us

    • formerlyAnon

      Now he’s just being silly. A crown and purple vestments (purple is worn for periods of vigil, preparation, humility and/or penance, such as Advent and Lent, if I recall correctly) with mirror shades.

      Hope it’s a good show.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Blue is the liturgical color for Advent. It’s possible that purple could also be worn, as Advent is a season for contemplation and waiting.

        • formerlyAnon

          Huh. Must depend on the denomination? I’m not sure I remember ever seeing blue vestments (Roman Catholic)? But it’s been six or seven years since I attended church regularly, so maybe I just misremember.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Blue is the liturgical color for Lutherans (my denomination) for Advent. Right now we’re in the green season.

    • Imasewsure

      Maybe he’s just retaining water…. holy water, that is…. tee hee

    • demidaemon

      HOLY CRAP! HE KNOWS!

    • formerlyAnon

      I must add: Thanks, TLo, for Mr. Leto and Ms. Witherspoon here on the same afternoon. My entertainment needs are met.

    • Mr. J.

      It’s the shades…..and he knows it. Oh, does he know it.

    • MissusBee

      Rocker Pixie Jesus TROLL.

      Frickin’ hilarious.

    • Mothra

      It reminds me strangely of something having to do with the Three Musketeers.

      • Imasewsure

        Athos, Porthos, Aramis and Rocker Pixie Jesus…. sorry D’Artagnan but you have been replaced!!

    • Tracy_Flick

      Somewhere Sinead O’Connor is rolling her eyes and thinking “I did that shit 25 years ago, when people actually cared about priests and the Pope.”

    • cocohall

      He looks like he is auditioning to play a cult leader on the new season of True Detective. He just looks skeevy crazy.

    • LipstickForPigs

      His tattoo looks like candy corn.

      • kimmeister

        The one on is inner forearm looks like an X-men logo.

    • smayper

      That is the precise purple and gold of the bags that Crown Royal used to come in. My father gave me one for my marble collection. In 1972.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I like your dad’s style. What a cool bag for marbles.

      • siriuslover

        My parents worked in the Vegas casinos and we got Crown Royal bags for marbles / coins and cigar boxes to bring to school for our pencil boxes!

      • boweryboy

        That was my dad’s drink of choice back in the ’70s so I had a ton of those bags … which I promptly turned into gowns for my sister’s Barbies.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      True story: I have a headpiece a lot like that. (My friends often give me a Lea Michele style “Of course,” when I say “I have a hat/headpiece like that!”)

    • Parisinmydreams

      Jordan Catalano would be embarrassed.

    • Judy_J

      He should be wearing a crown of thorns.

    • FibonacciSequins

      P for Pixie, no doubt.

    • PinkyK

      Pontiff drag, nice!

    • WendyD

      Talk about hiding your light under your vestments…

    • Therese Bohn

      TLo was right!!!!!!! I find this funny (and I’m Catholic) although I wonder what he was singing???? Hope it’ wasn’t sacrilegious.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Maybe he’s singing Rock Me Sexy Jesus.

    • Daenyx

      …. No.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      This is hilarious…right down to the multi-colored fingernails.

    • OffToSeeHim

      Stole that shit straight from Prince.

    • boweryboy

      Behold … and so it was said by TLo and so it was done by Leto.*

      *makes me wonder if he actually reads TLo and is totally punking us all.

    • Coco Chanel

      Is this a joke? I hope so

    • MartyBellerMask

      Hallelujah

    • gitchygitchymama

      . …..that outfit says the tunes are weak.

    • Joey Melliza

      OMG – he really went for it. BRAVA Rocker Pixie Jesus

    • Alloy Jane

      For people speculating that Jared Leto knows of this site, I’m going to say “yes, in all likelihood he does.” He is extremely methodical and thorough when it comes to his profession. He does his research, and I wouldn’t be surprised if someone in his camp showed him these posts and he thought “Rocker Pixie Jesus? That’s brilliant, let’s run with that!” He has a very entertaining sense of humour and is very willing to laugh at himself. I wouldn’t consider this a troll so much as a hat-tip.

      • Constant Reader

        “I wouldn’t consider this a troll so much as a hat-tip.” My thoughts exactly.

    • what not

      First thought: Crown Royal bag.

    • MissusBee

      Now all I need is Johnny Depp as an actual wind chime, Lea Michelle in some strategically-placed dollar bills and Robert Pattinson in a takeout-stained bathrobe. Come on universe, I know you’re listening.

    • RescueMe23

      Clearly he believes his own press..

    • Chuck Barthelme

      If he’d only worn strappy sandals, he’d have completed the transformation.

    • Sam Smith

      OMG, I actually saw this performance in WPB. Was super awesome and he does not age and he is the second coming of jesus for sure.

    • Ashleigh

      I like the shoes…

    • Lee

      The transformation is complete.

    • LibKat

      Looks like he’s playing Herod in a community college production of JC Superstar.

    • moxx

      Give it a rest, mate.

    • MoHub

      He is going straight to H-E-double hockey sticks for this.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      People, we have been had.

    • Aidan B

      NOPE.

    • mdcoon127

      When did he become a Presbyterian minister?

    • http://jahnapeloquin.tumblr.com Jahna Peloquin

      He looks like a sheathed bottle of Crown Royale.

    • Martha Anderson

      If this is a real Chasuble I am afraid I cannot get with it. If it is something he had made, go for it. If it was a blessed garment, disrespectful

    • Betsy Carmody Gonzalez

      I think he is sending a message about quality self-reflection in his Lenten chasuble.

    • e jerry powell

      He’s living in 1971. That is so Jesus Christ Superstar.
