Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz believes we are an "over-medicated generation". However, he admits that taking medication saved his life during his time of need.In 2005, the rocker attempted to take his own life with an overdose due to chronic mood swings.
But despite turning his life around with the aid of prescription medication, Wentz warns the younger generation not to rely on the drugs.
"I think that medication has helped me at times in my life. I’ve needed to be on medication, it’s saved my life. But it’s definitely an over-medicated generation. Rather than having any kinds of conversations with anyone to solve our problems, we go and see what pill we can take to make it all go away."
Pete also confessed that he could never work in
White House because of all his past scandals… and tattoos. But there is hope that one day a tattooed man or woman will work in administration! 🙂
"I could never pursue a career in politics. I’ve been involved in far too many scandals.
"My mom says ‘You have too many tattoos’. Yeah, too many scandals and too many tattoos.
"Isn’t that an irony, though, now that so many of our generation have tattoos?
A tattooed person will end up in office one day, mark my words. Not necessarily at a presidential level, but there will be people with tattoos in the administration."
I’m pretty sure there are hundreds of people who work for our government that have a little ink.But I understand what he is saying – something visible like an arm band or a neck tat. That would be pretty wild to see wouldn’t it?
