Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz is coming clean about his history with addiction!
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, the musician and father admitted that after FOB went on hiatus in 2009, he became more dependent on prescription pills — specifically Xanax and Klonopin — which he took for anxiety.
Fall Out Boy may have been kidding on the square when they named their fifth album Save Rock And Roll, but one thing isn't a joke- the sales!
The fall out from the viral campaign and risky release of the entire album on YouTube a week early turned out to be more of a windfall.
The record has premiered at Number One on the Billboard 200 albums chart!
FOB had an amazing week, selling 154,000 copies- not quite as many as the best weeks of Infinity On High or From Under The Cork Tree, but considering the changes to the music industry since then, the numbers are quite impressive!
Save Rock And Roll indeed!
Ch-ch-check out the video to find out exactly how the boys came to name their record- and what Sir Elton John had to do with it …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Pete Wentz's son with Ashlee Simpson is happy to be a big cousin!

Here's what Daddy Wentz said:
Pete Wentz, the bassist/lyricist from Fall Out Boy, was spotted out and about with his model girlfriend Meagan Camper yesterday.
Pete even brought along his cute son Bronx and hs adorbz poochie!
There is just waaay tooooo much cuteness at that table.
They must've had to sit outdoors or else the cuteness would just wind up bouncing around the restaurant, possibly blowing out the windows.
We love that they're spending so much time together as a family.
Nothing like some quality time, good convos, tasty food and a cute doggie to really warm your heart!
What a cute lil family you've got there!

Jessica Simpson's former brother-in-law Pete Wentz was recently asked about the blonde bombshell's alleged ditziness…
But rather than confirm suspicions that Jessica is a sweet, sexy simpleton with brilliant hair, the Fall Out Boy rocker offered up a VERY interesting opinion!
Aww! Don't sell yourselves short, boyz!
Fall Out Boy's long-awaited album, Save Rock And Roll, looks like a critical and commercial success, which is a surprise to lead singer/guitarist Patrick Stump!
He revealed today that he wasn't sure how well the band's reunion would work out; he certainly never expected so much love from his still super-supportive fans!
