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.”

  • jam

    god this whole thing’s so annoying :-/ don’t think anyone cares about her fat ass anymore

  • Razorback

    Clearly, they are only trying to keep this train wreck in the public spotlight.

    Ashley is a liar. Her sister is not a size 2. And she is the last person to say the media is wrong for saying bad things about her sister because it’s bad for young girls. Yeah right b^^^h. You are the last one to talk. All of that plastic surgery you had done. WHAT example are you trying to portray. You’re only beautiful if you go under the knife. SHUT UP.

  • carly

    Yep and Pete, would you ever marry a fat woman?? Makes me laugh when these young ones have a kid, they think they have all the answers.

  • Liz

    No one cares about this but them. STFU.

  • L

    jessica actually looks a lot better with more meat around her bones, she looks sexier, she finally has a booty!

  • k

    It’s a shame her boyfriend couldn’t stand up for her.

  • STFU

    It’s so sad that Ashley married a girl. Oh well, at least they get to share makeup and clothes.

    Pete was talking on howard stern about how quickly his wife got her “hot” body back after the baby not to mention talking about his own wife and Jessica as though they are sex objects but now he blames “pressure in hollywood”!! It’s jerks like him that make girls feel bad about the way they look whatever their size.

    From US Magazine:

    “Normally she wears a C-cup “but with breast milk, [she's] a D.”

    She weighed “up to 150 [lbs.]” while pregnant, Wentz revealed, but “it’s dropped nicely … it’s blazing off her.” He also said he never fantasizes about Jessica.
    “I think about her as my sister,” he said. Still, he admitted he probably would have thought about having a threesome with the Simpson sibs “20 years back.”

  • babette

    this Pete W talks about anything to get attention.
    Douche..who cares what your whiny face thinks.

    Jessica Simpson gained weight so people can talk about her.
    Her films are loosers & her singing career is none.

    but, she does have a sweet smile. Like the Bunny teeth

  • Lindsay kate

  • gerard Vandenberg

  • miami

    this pete guy is getting anoying like the rest of the simpson family. why to the simpson always defend themselves??

  • Megan

    He should shut up and go run his fat azz beard around the block because she should have lost that pregnancy weight by now.

  • Jeff

    k @ 01/29/2009 at 10:13 pm It’s a shame her boyfriend couldn’t stand up for her.
    Tony is kind of busy if you know what I mean…wink…wink. He don’t have time for fatty—I mean Jessica but don’t worry Papa will set up a pr stunt for the fans that are dumb enough to think it’s a real relationship..

  • SandyM

    Man she got fat, I cant believe she still has a career. This kinda stuff sucks. I tried auditioning for canadian idol once, it seems like its all for tv, they only took the first few in the line and the rest of us were sent home. Im guessing american idol is the same. Im still trying to get into the business, i got some great tips here Http:// been reading through their books, hopefully it will work for me one day…

  • paige

    The more these idiot celebrities defend her, the more people
    are going to be talking about her.

    They need to shut the f’ up already!!

  • mju8

    If real beauty is on the inside then why’d his wife get a nose job?

  • lollipop

    Who is this guy? And why do we care what he has to say? Enough already.

  • Marieme

    I agree with #7. STFU Pete.

    Oh, and you’re one to lecture about anything you Fur HAG.

  • UM….


  • Tina

    Plastica’s fame is a bad example to young girls, fat or not she deserves what she gets.

  • bonnie

    is he saying she’s ugly on the outside?

  • des

    “Real beauty is on the inside, man.”

    pete is gayer than ever.

  • bella

    good point comment #21.
    I do think the media is being harsh on Jessica about her weight. In no way is the girl fat. She has curves and she made a BAD choice of outfit at the chilifest thing that sparked the whole debate. Any person who has shape to them who wears the high rise pants of course the pants will not be that flattering to your figure.

  • t

    That girl IS NOT FAT.

  • elanenergy

    The evil genius that is Papa Joe has engaged the entire family in their newest project—getting Jess fat and then fighting the world about it….what will Papa Joe think of next??? Losers.

  • elanenergy

    Hey, where did my snarky comment go? Am I being censored? As I said before, this is the work of the evil genius known as Papa Joe, who has orchestrated a fat campaign to enable the family to stay “relevant” and to secure further product/service commissions for his talent-less family. Will this post?

  • lakers fan in boston

    yawn who cares about jessica
    especially coming from this little fag
    and jessica is not fat, it was just those pants really

  • Jodi

    Jessica Simpson is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and the fact that she puts on real female curves, earns her all my admiration. The people who don’t have real female bodies are called “bulimic teens”. Like Angelina Jolie who is deadscared of a gram of fat on her body – but being skinny, she isn’t even pretty. Jessica is beautiful, no matter what.

  • Paula Abdul Multimedia

    Jessica ROCKS!

  • jess

  • jess
