Check out "City of Angels"...
Billboard reports that 30 Seconds to Mars have released the music video for "City of Angels", which features several celebrities including Kanye West, Lindsay Lohan, James Franco and Selena Gomez. The ten minute short film was directed by Jared Leto and features celebrities talking about Los Angeles.
There are clips between performance shots of the band, and impersonators of Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe. Celebrities talk about the pros and cons of living in the city and talk about their first journeys to it.
Lohan said: "The city of angels is where I was able to find myself again, the real me."
Leto added: "I wouldn't have anything if it wasn't for the city."
West said he has mixed feelings as it's where his mother died and his daughter was born. He said: "The city took my mother, but the city also gave me my child."
Other celebrities include Olivia Wilde, Ashley Olsen, Lily Collins, Juliette Lewis, Alan Cumming, Shaun White and Corey Feldman.
Wilde said: "I thought it was the most magical place I'd ever been. It's the promised land."
Fans were given an early showing of the documentary short at a Hollywood Bowl show earlier this month.
Leto said in a statement: "City Of Angels is a short film about this wild, weird, and wonderful land, Los Angeles, California. A place that has left its mark on the world's imagination and a place where dreams can actually come true. I made this short film so I could share my thoughts on this incredibly special place and talk to others about theirs. It's not so much about this particular city but more about the people who inhabit it. This is for the dreamers who know that sometimes the impossible is indeed possible."
The song is the second single from the band's fourth album LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS. Leto is current on tour with his band and makes an appearance in Dallas Buyers Club, which arrives Friday and also stars Matthew McConaughey. An acoustic version of "City of Angels" appears on the soundtrack.
