Pete Wentz On Jessica Simpson's Weight Debate

Pete Wentz On Jessica Simpson's Weight Debate

Pete Wentz shows off his red hot shades at the NFL Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Concert held at the Ford Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Thursday (January 29) in Tampa, Fla.

The 29-year-old Fall Out Boy bassist recently defended his sister-in-law Jessica Simpson‘s new curves. Pete told Extra!, “I think that the media puts too harsh of a spotlight on women in general and I think it’s a bummer. It’s bad for young women. I see it affecting young girls who come to our shows and that’s a bummer.”

He continues, “Real beauty is on the inside, man.”

UPDATE: Pete also tells ET: “I feel like, as a country in particular, we put so many ideas and regulations and thoughts into the heads of young women that they have to look and feel a certain way or else they’re not good enough or they’re not pretty enough. It’s like the cheesiest thing ever to say, but who you are is way more important than how you look.”
