Former Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump rose to fame after his band toured the world and sold hundreds of thousands of records. Stump now finds himself on the road supporting his self-produced solo music, an infectious blend of radio pop and groovy R&B that's a far cry from the pop-punk that made him a household name. Currently on tour with Panic! at the Disco, Stump acknowledges what many fans expect of him. However, he's more than comfortable just being the soulful, multi-instrumental performer he hasn't gotten to showcase until now.
How’s your tour with Panic! at the Disco going so far?
Ashlee Simpson, 26, filed for divorce from Pete Wentz, 32, on Tuesday.
The couple has been dating since 2006 and got married on May 17, 2008. They have a 2-year-old son together, little Bronx Mowgli.
The reason for the split claimed by Simpson is "irreconcilable differences". She asked for joint legal custody — and primary physical custody — of their son and she is also asking the court to restore her name to Ashlee Nicole Simpson (she had it changed to Ashlee Simpson-Wentz less than month after their wed).
The celebrities are out New Year's Eve at some of the hottest spots from New York to Sin City to anywhere in between.
Heres a list of where the cameras will be flashing a tad bit more:
1. Ryan Seacrest- Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, New York
2. Carmen Electra- TAO at the Venetian, Las Vegas
3.Jay-Z and Coldplay- The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas NYE concert
4. Pete Wentz- CIROC Vodka for E!, Chicago
Sunday: traditionally a day of rest and contemplation. According to Steve Aoki and Hornitos Tequila, that might not cut it anymore. With some help from Jesse Marco and Holy Ghost!, this crew transformed Sunday at the Bowery Ballroom into a Friday night. Neither Chris Tucker nor Ice Cube were in attendance, except perhaps in spirit.
Friday, like the movie. See what I did there? Remember 1995, anyone? Hm, ok then, moving on.
Obsessive fans will do anything to get closer to their favorite artists. There is even a black-market for over enthusiastic fans to buy used pieces of clothing, half-eaten sandwiches and even snotty tissues so long as they were blown by “so-and-so.” The collector’s item that typically divides the true-blue fans from the shady stalkers is the lock of hair.
Which is exactly what certain fans of Fall Out Boy will receive if they preorder the band’s new album, Believers Never Die. The select group of superfans, known as the “Overcast Kids,” will receive a lock of bassist Pete Wentz’s hair along with a special gift package if they cough up the $130 for the special edition package of the band’s greatest hits album.
