Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III
, also known as Pete Wentz, is the bassist and lyricist for pop-punk Chicago-based band Fall Out Boy
which has undoubtedly become the 'it' band of 2005/2006. The band consists of Patrick Stump
, Andy Hurley
, Joe Trohman
, and of course, Pete.
Pete engaged in a so-called "Suicide attempt," though he dislikes it being called that, in 2005, after the band's release of "Take this to your grave (And I'll take it to mine)," in which he was hospitalized for a short while and took some time to recouperate before getting back on his feet and back to his normal wonderful self.
In an incident in 2006, Pete took pictures of his penis, intended to be for a (Now ex-) girlfriend. The pictures were recieved third-person and then posted on a celebrity news livejournal, "Oh, no, they Didn't," and later proven to be stolen off of his T-mobile Sidekick. This incident has caused Pete to gain many fans of gay and celebrity porn, and caused the band to lose many fans, as the incident was almost immediately labeled a "Publicity Stunt," though this has been proven to be untrue by the amount of stress and humiliation that has been placed onto him shortly after the event.
This incident has also caused many people to be "Anti-Pete Wentz" in some ways, going around the internet and bashing Fall Out Boy and Pete wherever they can. Anti-Pete Wentz people are not to be taken lightly, and though you may try and convince them that they are wrong, because they so sorely are, they won't accept it. They are best to just be ignored and, as many things, will just dissapear.
Pete is the producer of Clandestine industries
, a clothing line that puts out things such as hoodies, T-shirts, belts, and polos, held together by his friend Bonnie Dillard
, AKA Bonnie Jane
Clandestine also puts out a book called "The Boy with the Thorn in his side," which is about nightmares Pete had when he was younger, the cause for most of his tattoos. The Follow-up book, "Rainy Day Kids," is estimated to be out by October '06.
Pete Wentz also is known to go by several nicknames, "Pistol Pete," "Peterpeterpumpkineater," "Peterpanda," "P," and "Peterpan," more sure to be on the tip of his tounge.
In short, Pete Wentz is a person, though you may not like him, you should at least learn to appreciate the work he has done, and the inspiration he has set into people's minds and hearts. Even if you don't like him, you should at least try and respect him.
Pete Wentz has had a rough trip around life, but has turned out as one of the greatest and most amazing and inspiring celebrities ever.
