Pete Wentz: Ashlee Gave Me The Best Birthday Gift

Pete Wentz: Ashlee Gave Me The Best Birthday Gift

Pete Wentz accepts the “Voice of Mental Health” award at the 8th annual Jed Foundation Gala at Guastavino’s on Thursday (June 11) in New York City. Here’s what the 30-year-old Fall Out Boy frontman told at the event:

JJ: How did you get involved with JED?

PW: I did this PSA with MTV, I’m pretty aware of how people this age can be affected, college kids, that’s why I did that as well.

JJ: It was your 30th birthday on Friday, what was your favorite gift?

PW: My wife [Ashlee Simpson] gave me a pretty creative video, then she gave me the camera she made the video with which was cool. It’s like a home video and has [my son] Bronx in it.

JJ: Do you guys live in NY or LA now?

PW: We live in LA, but we want to get a place here. She’s filming Melrose Place in LA, though.

JJ: You were on CSI:NY, what’s the next show you would want to guest star on?

PW: Oh man, I like The Office a lot. There’s a lot of shows I like that they probably wouldn’t want me on the show but that’s alright.

JJ: What do you think of Adam Lambert’s Rolling Stone cover? His look is a severe version of how you looked a few years back.

PW: Big hair and eyeliner have been in forever. Motley Crue and the Cure, even [Bob] Dylan had it for a period. He’s a good singer but I’m like the only person on the planet that doesn’t follow American Idol.

JJ: Where is Fall Out Boy nowadays?

PW: We’re on a little bit of a break, then we go to China for the first time and a couple different places in Asia, then we’re going on tour with Blink-182 and a couple of other bands in the states.

JJ: The show you hosted on MTV, FNMTV. Is that coming back in the fall?

PW: We’re going to do specials. Honestly, video is just not as important as it used to be or I think as it should be. I think it comes in waves as well and people kind of realize that reality TV kind of killed the video star.

    Pete is cute, handsome man. glad he is doing something for mental health issues. They are always hidden until something tragic happens. It’s a disease like diabetes or cancer and people need to be educated.

    Ashley Simpson is Fugly and jealous of other girls who are prettier than she is! That nose job is terrible, now you just notice how big her chin is! I thought she was pretty before the nose job, now she looks ugly.
