You gotta give it up to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz. Fucker doesn't sing, he doesn't play lead guitar, he isn't even the cutest guy in the band, but somehow he has become the emo Puff Daddy. Bro's got a hot clothing line (Clandestine), he's pimping out up'n'coming artists and making them hit machines (yes that would be you Panic! at the Disco), he's on five-story-tall Gap ads, and now he's got a record label that secured the soundtrack to the hottest movie of the summer.

He even bit Paris Hilton's style and ended up with nudes of his tattooed self on the interwebs via a Sidekick leak. Whoops. But just like he handles all those accusations of being gay, the little devil just wipes his teased bangs away from his eyes to reveal glistening eyeliner and laughs all the way to the motherfucking bank.

Our pals Buzznet co-sponsored the record release party last night at the Key Club which was supposed to be a night for Cobra Starship, the manufactured(?) band who sings the theme song to the Snakes film, but were quickly upstaged by the Cobra Snake's pals The Sounds and an acoustic set from The Academy Is... that made all the girls swoon.
