Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz has talked about his addition to pills.
Talking to Rolling Stone the musician admitted that he became more dependent on prescription pills after FOB went on hiatus in 2009.
He mas mainly hooked on Xanax and Klonopin what he was taking for his anxiety problem.
This is what the father and musician had to say:
“I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled. I felt like a loser already. I’d basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn’t see how I’d ever come out on the other side.”
But it all got a lot worse when his wife Ashlee Simpson divorced him in 2011:
“I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy.”
The Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am has been working really hard on Britney Spear‘s new album.
The other day he was on Twitter when a fan tweeted him and asked if he could make Brit Brit’s new album less synthesizers and more string instrumentation.
The fan tweeted to Will:
@iamwill Will, PLEASE put some strings on Brit’s new album. We’re tired of electronic beats and synthetizers. Violins, piano & more, please!
We know that her new album will be really good if Will is helping out with it so it look’s like we will just have to wait and see.

Britney Spears has, reportedly, been arguing with Demi Lavato!
According to the National Enquirer:

If they both return to the X Facto this year they are going to have to fine a way of getting on.
After a decade of substance abuse Billie Joe Armstrong has changed his life around for the better and now he has talked out about it.
This is what he had to say:
“I was going through withdrawal. That was gruesome, laying on the bathroom floor and just feeling like… I didn’t realize how much that stuff affected me. And it’s not the stuff that is immediately in your system. It goes back to how long you’ve been using. It was working its way out.
I was going through so much sh*t. Even in the second week, I was like, ‘I don’t belong here. I’m not convinced.’ The sick part of it is I wanted to get all of the narcotics out of my system so I could start drinking. But that’s the insanity of the whole thing. You make excuses. You rationalize. You can take a sh*t in a mailbox — that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.”
“I kept it away from my sons pretty good. My dogs kept looking at me, wondering how I’m doing. They can sense that stuff. I could have gone to a facility, but this way I could be around my loved ones.”
But one of the hardiest things for Armstrong was going back on tour as he cancelled loads of dates due to the substance abuse and avoiding temptation:
“Sometimes I’m not sure I’m ready. There is still the obsession for alcohol. There’s also sleepless nights. But I have to work on it every day. Because I know what goes on out there. I’m hosting this giant party for people. At least 70-75 percent of the people in the audience have been getting a drink on. I’ve got to watch my step.”
Billie Joe Armstrong is not 100% yet but he’s on the way to a full receovery.
In March issue of Rolling Stone, the Green Day‘s frontman talked about his addiction and how alcohol and prescription drugs took over his life. He also talked about his meltdown at the iHeartRadio festival in Sin City last september.
This is what he had to say:
“I couldn’t predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night. I’d wake up in a strange house on a couch. I wouldn’t remember how. It was a complete blackout.
I remember tiny things. The next morning, I woke up. I asked [my wife] Adrienne, ‘How bad was it?’ She said, ‘It’s bad.’ I called my manager. He said, ‘You’re getting on a plane, going back to Oakland and going into rehab immediately.’”
His drug addiction was taking over his life and making him say funny things as he even shouted out to the aduience while he was on stage ”I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherf*ckers,”.
