Pete Wentz: 'Every parent lives a double life'

This post has been corrected, as detailed below.

If you're going to live a double life, live Pete Wentz's. Though the energetic rocker of Fall Out Boy fame has the face of the sprightly young upstart with a guitar, he's also a 32-year-old dad.

Chatting with the Ministry at a Friday gig in Hollywood, Wentz reflected on managing his job and his son Bronx Mowgli, whom he shares with Ashlee Simpson.

"I feel every parent lives a double life. It's the same on some levels — toddler vomit vs. adult vomit," he said of managing the stage, then diaper duty.

"Kidding!" he added.

But seriously: "I plan my schedule around my son; he's been all over the world already, from Tokyo to Paris. I try to not ever go too many days without seeing him. On stage, I play music and at home I make fart noises and I'm in," he said.

Wentz and his band the Black Cards are the surprise guests for this evening's "Details @ Midnight" sessions, going down with Details magazine at Room 86 in Hollywood. Sound effects pertaining to the body aren't on the set list.

[For the record, 1:45 p.m. Nov. 4: This post originally referred to Room 86 incorrectly as Space 86.]
