Birthday Boys

- Cosmo Editor

They’ve both just performed in SA. They share a birthday and are equally gorgeous. So who’s your favourite?

Age: 31
Sign: Capricorn
Height: 1,73m
You know him as the lead singer of Daughtry, and the most successful American Idol contestant who didn’t win the competition.
Status: Married.
What you probably don’t know: Chris does push-ups before every performance. He is also a visual artist, and draws and paints in his spare time.
What we love: He’s big on charity. His band regularly performs at initiatives such as Bono’s One campaign against poverty and Aids. Everything about him seems to be the antithesis of a hard rocker but he works as a (very appealing) package.
Heart-Melting Moment In response to questions about crazy fans, Chris said, ‘I think there are always weird fan moments, but we don’t like to single them out or make them feel bad because our fans are awesome.’ Bless.
Follow The Music: If you missed the concert in October, get Daughtry’s latest album, Leave This Town, at your nearest music store.
Age: 38
Sign: Capricorn
Height: 1,77m
You know him as the lead singer of 30 Seconds To Mars.
Status: Single.
What you probably don’t know: He uses the pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins (borrowed from Dr Seuss’s The 500 Hats Of Bartholomew Cubbins) when he directs music videos. He is also the sole songwriter for the band.
What we love: His ability to play dark, weird and often disfigured characters (remember Requiem For a Dream?) in films and still look damn sexy while he’s at it.
Freaky Fact Jared once had a thing for homes of strangers. ‘I used to like to break into other people’s houses and sit in their rooms. I found it very comforting to be in someone else’s house,’ he once said. Wouldn’t that be a welcome surprise?
Follow The Music: 30 Seconds To Mars are in SA from 19 November (see page 26 of the December 2010 issue of COSMOPOLITAN) and their current album, This Is War, is on sale now.
