Pete Wentz Talks Penis Piercing, Hints He'll Marry Girlfriend Meagan Camper
Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time? During an appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Monday, Jan. 20, Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz revealed he'd once made the "dumb" decision to pierce his private parts -- a decision he has since wisely reversed.
Asked by a fan whether he'd ever gotten a piercing below the waist, the 34-year-old father-of-one replied coyly, "I've had basically everything pierced in my entire life." Then, clarifying that he had, in fact, gotten a penis piercing, he added: "I was young and dumb and full of 'wisdom.' It's not pierced anymore."
The Best Ink host also talked about body art with daytime talk show personality Wendy Williams in an interview that aired Tuesday, Jan. 21. "I have a bunch [of tattoos]," he said, noting that he got his first ink when he was 15 years old but is strategically leaving parts of his body undecorated. "Ones on your hands and your neck are usually called 'job-stoppers,' so I'm still hoping that I could end up being an accountant or something if it all goes wrong."
His son, Bronx, apparently doesn't share his love of tattoos. "I take him to preschool, and I'm picking him up one day, and his teacher was like, 'Well, everyone here drew tattoos on themselves except your kid,'" Wentz told Williams of the 5-year-old little boy, his only child with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson. "And I was like, 'He'll probably be into math or something like that.'"
Married for three years, Bronx's parents finalized their divorce in November 2011. Both have since found love with other people; Simpson recently announced her engagement to Diana Ross' son Evan Ross, and Wentz has been dating model Meagan Camper for nearly three years.
"It's insane that she hangs out with me!" he said of his girlfriend. "I feel like [we look like] 'hot girl pictured with homeless man trying to beg her for change.' This is like charity work here."
Asked whether he plans to marry again, the musician replied, "I think so. I mean, we talk about it a lot. I feel really lucky. It's, like, really interesting [to be] in a relationship with someone who is truly my best friend. Like, I talk to her about everything. She will tell me when I'm being not so insane, and sometimes she's like, 'You're being a little bit insane.' It's very helpful."
Best Ink airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Oxygen.
