Fall Out Boy says it was during a rebellious phase


Pete Wentz admits he used to kiss his male pals.

The Fall Out Boy bassist – who is expecting his first child with wife Ashlee Simpson – reckons it was all part of growing up.

‘When I said that I make out with dudes, there was a slight sense of sexual rebellion in that,’ he reveals.

‘And I probably even made it a bigger deal than it was. [The last time was a] long time ago. Probably when I was 22?’

But Pete, 29, says he’s always felt comfortable with his sexuality.

‘I’ve always felt this relentless heterosexual drive,’ he tells Out.

‘Our culture bombards us with this idea that you’re not that, and if you are that, there’s something wrong with you, and then we’re going to call you that, and then it’s an insult.’

In the past Pete has discussed his ‘possible bisexuality’ and even admits to having a crush on John Mayer.
