What do you think?
He is of the opinion that his relationship with his wife brought too much of the wrong kind of attention to the band.
He wants to take a break from his public persona and work on the band image. He said, “My biggest personal reason for taking a break is that I feel my name has become a hindrance for the band. (Frontman Patrick Stump) is a musical genius and it’s unfortunate that he gets reviewed based on whatever’s going on in my personal life or how my hair looks. I think the world needs a little less Pete Wentz. A lot of people think Fall Out Boy is me. But it’s the four of us. I want to f**king vomit when I read intros that say, ‘Pete Wentz: accidental internet poster boy.’ It makes me feel ugly.”
Well that’s just sad. We all want to “feel pretty and witty and gay.” Sometimes I can’t help it and just break into song.
Pete wants to concentrate on being a dad and his music. He also wants to keep his relationship with Ashlee going strong. All we ever hear about them is that they are on the verge of breaking up. Alas, they are not, they are still going strong. They are, if you will, “Going Down Swinging.”
