Should Pill Popping Parent Pete Wentz Talk About His Use?

All people have their fun or er, habits, but some change their ways once they enter parenthood or become hush about their vices. New papa Pete Wentz was expecting his bundle of joy Bronx when he opened up about his prescription pill popping habits to Blender Magazine. The article said:

Wentz sets his sunglasses on the table and picks up the menu. Truth be told, he doesn’t look great. Dark bags ring his eyes, and his skin has a waxy, jaundiced pallor. He says he sleeps three hours a night—sometimes less—and pops Ambien like Tropical Skittles. “I can take three Xanax bars and not feel a thing,” he says. “It’s kind of scary.”

What's your opinion on this disclosure?

Pete always strikes me as saying things he thinks will make him look really cool. He's like the kid in high school who really wanted to be in the popular crowd so he made crude jokes and wore what he thought were the cool clothes, but always missed the mark. It's like the name Bronx. I bet Pete thought it would go over as a really cool, butch name. It doesn't. Much like Pete himself, he ends up looking like a total poser.

He has never said anything intelligent, he comes across as stupid. But this statement could have been a joke, maybe?

Whoever is prescribing this guy these pills should have his or her medical license revoked. If he is at the point that Ambien and Xanax have no effect on him, he's got a serious addiction problem. The fact that he is so flippant about it is alarming.

I second Greggie's opinion :).

no surprise. the "marriage" won't last and then she can use this article against him. so YES, i think he should talk openly about this and all his other poor choices.

He really defines the term "douchebag."

Oh yes, she is one lucky, lucky girl. Ha. Between the sex chat he recently had and this, he seems like an ideal father/husband.

As a celebrity I think that it is better to talk about yourself then have others digging up you mistakes. His child will know that you can't hide from the truth. This way he can make is own decisions. We are not our parents.We can always do better if we chose.
