Pete Wentz speaks about Jessica Simpson weight gain

Fall Out Boy thinks the spotlight on her figure is unfair

Pete Wentz speaks about Jessica Simpson weight gain
Pete Wentz has criticised media coverage of sister-in-law Jessica Simpson’s recent weight gain, saying that he thinks the spotlight placed on women by the media is unfair.

Simpson, who is the sister of Wentz’ wife Ashlee, has been the focus of media coverage over her weight gain after a public appearance last week.

When asked by Extra about the situation, Wentz replied:

"I think 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. Real beauty is on the inside, man."

Fall Out Boy performed last night in Tampa, FL at the NFL Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash.
