Ryan Seacrest Chats Up Pete Wentz On Honeymoon
Calling in to Ryan Seacrest’s LA radio morning talk show from “the basement of a house” Tuesday, Pete Wentz gave the obsequious American Idol host details of his current honeymoon with wife Ashlee Simpson, dodged pregnancy questions and talked about…like, stuff, you know?
The interview began with Wentz relating a story from earlier in the morning, when police called to verify whether a young man found driving his Mercedes had permission to do so. Knowing him only as a rapper named ‘Tiga’, Wentz told Seacrest, “I realized, this is what’s really important: when you get to know your friends…make sure you know their full name and some stuff about them.”
Wentz then went on to describe his honeymoon with Simpson. Avoiding paparazzi, the couple are “hanging out” in the basement of “a house”, eating Digiorno pizza, surrounded by blow-up palm trees and taking turns in a sunless tanning bed.
Asked by Seacrest how he felt, Wentz responded, “I feel great man. It’s like sunny and 65 in my head.”
As for Ashlee, “she’s happy man. She’s sittin’ here - she’s got these blow-up, you know, palm trees. She’s got this husband who’s, ya know, got a tanning bed there for her. We played Monopoly last night for real. I got Boardwalk and Park Place, but I had to mortgage all my real estate to get [them]. I’m one of those guys who plays Monopoly and those are the only two [properties] I care about, you know?”
He went on to note that during the Monopoly game he was the car, Ashlee the dog.
When asked by Seacrest whether he’d thought about potential baby names, Wentz responded cryptically. Having predicted the question, Wentz told Seacrest of his plan to answer by saying, “my penis is a flamethrower” in German, adding, “but I couldn’t remember how it went.”
Wentz went on to say, “Ryan, this baby has not been confirmed. The only thing I’m confirming right now is we’re in the basement right now, on our honeymoon, with these blow-up palm trees.”
No word yet on when Edward R. Murrow is expected to cease grave rolling.
Pete Wentz on His Honeymoon, Pre-Nup and Pesky Pregnancy Rumors
Which exotic destination did newlyweds Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson select for their honeymoon? Believe it or not, their basement.
While Ashlee slept, Pete called in to Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday morning and chatted about their splashy wedding, low-key honeymoon and, yes, those pesky baby rumors.
"We have signed a pre-nup," Pete admitted to Ryan. And while Ash is legally a Wentz, he said he doesn't "know what she'll do with her stage name, that's up to her. She hasn't decided on that."
Their honeymoon is taking place... in the basement of their Los Angeles home. "We got some blow-up palm trees," Pete said. "A little fake-n-bake tanning booth. We're eating DiGiorno's pizza, getting in that tanning oven every once in a while. It's great."
Ryan did ask about the pregnancy rumors, but Pete refused to budge, saying: "Ryan, this baby has not been confirmed."
And he wasn't talking about his sister-in-law Jessica Simpson's possible breakup with Tony Romo either. "I don't know anything about what's going on with them," he said. "I'm so busy clearing up my own rumors!"
About to Pop: Tokio Hotel
Who: Tokio Hotel
Hails From: Magdeburg, Germany
For Fans Of: AFI and My Chemical Romance
Why They're About to Pop: This hard-rocking foursome has been wowing audiences overseas since its members were in their early teens. Now, still barely legal, Bill Kaulitz (vocals), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (bass) have sold upward of 3 million CDs and DVDs in Germany, and have four No. 1 singles and two No. 1 albums under their belt. Their following has spread like wildfire across Europe, and they hope to do the same in the U.S. "It's always been a dream of ours to make it in the States," says lead singer Bill Kaulitz. "We grew up listening to American bands like Metallica, Green Day and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. We wanted to get a chance to do what they do." On their impressive third album (the first in English), Tokio Hotel will get a chance to do just that.
Three Questions with Tokio Hotel:
What inspired the songs on your record?
Bill: A lot of things: We found inspiration in situations or circumstances that happened in our lives over the past few years and also in the lives of our friends and family. We've also been moved by fans who have written us letters about their lives, and we've included some of that in our music and lyrics.
What's your favorite song on the record?
Tom: That's a tough one because it always changes and we also differentiate between "favorite song on the record" and "favorite live song". My favorite live song right now is 'Don't Jump.'
Gustav: For performing live, it's 'Raise Your Hands.'
Bill: For me, it's 'Break Away.'
Georg: Hey, same here. Right now, it's 'Break Away.'
Bill: But as Tom said, if you would ask us tomorrow we might name totally different songs -- it always changes.
What are the most-played songs on your iPod?
Tom: '99 Problems,' by Jay-Z.
Georg: 'Big Casino,' by Jimmy Eat World.
Gustav: 'Make It Whit Chu,' by Queens of the Stone Age.
Bill: 'It Means Nothing,' by Stereophonics.
<--I don't think that Gustav is normal, nor that Georg is cute. Tom being tough is questionable. Bill is edgy. Someone needs to fix this picture. But I still love Tokio Hotel!!
