FALL OUT BOY - Q&A
Straight interviews with famous people hardly ever make it into the magazine. But we think it's a waste for us not to do something with the access we have to these people. So we're going to start doing celebrity Q&As on the blog, starting this week with Fall Out Boy. We want to ask questions that nobody else would ask. Got any good questions that need answering? If so, write in the comments section. Next week we’re meeting Regina Spektor. Yay.
VICE: On a scale of one to ten how much do you enjoy anal sex?
Pete Wentz: (Without hesitating) Ten.
What is your worst ever sexual experience?
When I was about 16 I had this girlfriend who wouldn’t let me get past like first base so I used to just dry hump her to try and get her into it but she wasn’t having it. I went at it so hard that I rubbed all the skin off my dick and balls. It was raw man…
What's the worst fight you've had with your mum?
A physical fight? Nah, man! Well, she once ground me for all of spring break. That one almost came to blows I suppose.
When did you last get into a fist fight?
The other night over in Europe somewhere this bouncer guy smacked one of our stage crew and I had at him man. I dropped him, it was cool.
Any other good tour stories?
Err... You know the usual - nakedness, beer.
Come on, you’ve sold like 36 million records. Specifics please.
Err... Well the other night we got back to the hotel and I had a lady friend back with me.
No, no! I was a little drunk and had taken a few downers to get me to sleep and we'd ordered a load of room service that just didn’t turn up so I went down to the kitchen to try and see what the deal was and got really lost. I made my way back to the room somehow and was knocking on the door but no one answered. I got kinda mad and started kicking the door down 'cos I thought the chick was, like, robbing me or something. All of a sudden her head pops out of the door opposite and she’s like freaking out going: "You've just kicked down 602. We're 603."
If you could create a dream band, who would be in it?
Erm... Bonham on drums, maybe me on bass and then Robert Smith and Morrisey on guitar and vocals, can you imagine that combo?! It would totally implode!
Who is the most successful person you know?
Are you friends with Jay-Z?
I don't know him well - we don't go to sleepovers together - but if we're both in town we'll catch dinner or something.
Here in the UK, emo as a genre has come to be typified by yourselves and bands like My Chemical Romance. How do you feel about the tag? To me, emo is bands like Moss Icon, Heroin and Christie Front Drive.
Sure, exactly. I mean I grew up on Rites Of Spring, Cap'n Jazz, all that. My first band just used to rip off Fugazi but now we do what we do, and whatever the music press feels like calling it, that's up to them.
