Fall Out Boy
rocker Joe Trohman
has hit out at reports the band blame bassist Pete Wentz's
girlfriend Ashlee Simpson
for their recent Grammy Awards snub, claiming the pop star is "awesome". The pop rockers were expected to pick up a clutch of nominations when the Grammy nods were announced recently - but they weren't even mentioned.
This prompted some fans to turn on bass player Wentz's girlfriend - and reports suggesting the band want him to dump the singer have surfaced. however Trohman insists any claim that Simpson is to blame for the band's poor Grammy showing is "complete tabloid bulls**t" - and he urges fans not to pay any attention to reports from so-called pals of the band.
In a post on his blog, "irked" Trohman blasts, "We don't have any pals that gossip to the tabloids over our business. Those kind of folk are called douchebags, and we don't fraternize with douchebags. We also don't blame a certain someone for our lack of a Grammy nod. That's absolutely f**king absurd. We might be irrational, chemically imbalanced babies, but our discontent is only directed at those who we feel slighted us to a degree."
"We're just over it. We don't need to be validated by a piece of metal. Don't believe the gossip columns out there. This `poisonous' person that was mentioned is nothing short of awesome, and we fully back her."
