"The Voice" Gets a Makeover

"The Voice" is back in its fourth season with new coaches Shakira and Usher. It was a serious move to bring the new duo in as pinch hitters for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera. Catch the show on Monday, March 25 at 8PM EST on NBC.

Talk about life imitating art (Van Gogh would be so proud).

Among the numerous fan letters singer and actor Jared Leto receives on a daily basis, he admits that one stood out more than the rest, and considering the surprise he found inside, it makes sense.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is no stranger to getting gifts from his admirers, and told XFM, "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. You get all kinds of wonderful things."

Yes, all kinds of wonderful things--like a human ear, for example.

"Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me," Leto told the radio station. "That was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move."

But that's not all. In an effort to up the creep factor, the package with the severed ear also contained a note.

"The note just said, 'Are you listening?' I never knew who it was, who's missing their ear out there."

So what does a celeb do with such a gift? "I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace," he joked. "Just don't put your entire body in a case and send it to us."

Yeah, that would be a little too heavy on the neck.
