    A Depressed Pete Wentz Attempted Suicide

    Fall Out Boy star Pete Wentz has stunned fans by revealing he was once so depressed he tried to kill himself. The rocker has spoken about his ordeal in an effort to encourage students suffering from mental illness to seek out professional help.
    Wentz admits he was paralyzed by anxiety and depression at the beginning of his career and he felt so lost and alone he attempted suicide. Wentz has joined stars like Mary J. Blige and Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan to front the Jed Foundation's Half Of Us campaign, which is aimed at cutting student suicide rates. The trio has each sat for video interviews, in which they detail their darkest hours. The videos appear on MTV's college channel MTVU.
    During his revealing interview, Wentz says, "The darkest moment was when we had just finished recording out major label record and two days later we were going to go to Europe and I felt completely lost and out of control. At that point, I'd seen some doctors and they were Hollywood doctors so they gave me a cocktail (of prescription drugs) but I was kind of the drugstore cowboy, so I took the cocktail the way I wanted to take it."
    "I got in my car. I remember I was listening to Jeff Buckley doing Leonard Cohen's (song) Hallelujah and sat there and took a bunch of (prescription drug) Adavan in a Best Buy (store) parking lot. And I called up my manager because I was, at that point, completely out of my head with Adavan. And I was talking to him and I was slurring my words, so he called my mom and my mom called me and she came and got me and we went to the hospital."
    "I came home and we realized that we needed to do more than just keep (my) head above water. It's not really about keeping your head above water, it's about feeling all right and feeling safe in your own skin. It's not about keeping your head above water and barely keep going."

    If I were Pete Wentz, I'd try to off myself, too.

    So he was once so emo he tried to kill himself, and then considers marrying into the Simpson family.

    That doesn't sound like much of an improvement.

    Ativan, or any benzo for that matter, is a horrible choice for suicide. I'm pretty sure it's damn difficult to OD on any benzodiazpine type drug but it's usually the addition of alcohol that does the person in.
    He should have been a man and tried to OD on good ol' fashioned barbiturates, that probably would have got the job done.

    I'm a bitch today, what can I say.

    He must have been forced to stare into a mirror too long and just couldn't take it anymore. What a failure.

    I agree, the attempt is not newsworthy. A successful suicide should buy him 15 more minutes.

    My thoughts exactly. You'd think he'd want to off himself AFTER sex with Ashley or after hearing her sing. Guess he prefers to kill himself slowly. Kind of like Romo's doing with his career.
