Well, look. One of the faux-punk princesses of the early 2000s has gone back to her roots, so to speak. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, a born blonde and she who also achieved her weird sort of fame as a blonde, has gotten rid of the ‘edgy’ black that’s been her token ‘do since she decided that she wanted to be the darker half of the Simpson sisters and marry odd people like Pete Wentz.
Naturally, because Pete seems like such a front-putting, appearance-loving troll, there could be trouble brewing in paradise. Ashlee clearly looks so much less emo with her pretty blonde feathers, and that’s not what Petey’s all about.
What is he about, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. Flat irons, black eyeliner, My Chemical Romance, and cigarettes. I think before long Susy Sunshine’s going to start to grate on his nerves, and then he’ll start grating on his nerves, too. With a teardrop-covered razorblade.
At any rate, Ashlee, I like it. Just don’t expect a Pieces of Me revival anytime soon. Those days are long gone.

Remember that weirdness back in the early years of the new decade where Ashlee Simpson had her original nose and Fallout Boy and Good Charlotte and Sum-41 were all pretty popular and so were those black and white Vans loafers?
Ah, the Pete Wentz heyday.
Anyway, the couple formerly (and independently, of course) known as ‘punk rawk cool’ was photographed with their adorable son, Bronx Mowgli (yep, there’s that, um, rawkness again), on a playdate at a Sherman Oaks, CA park.
A couple of observations on these photos — Bronx is gigantic. I mean, really. I feel like he was just born last week or whatever, and here he is with a big boy sippy cup and riding the swings. Craziness. Ashlee is looking good, though a little on the thin side, but Pete, man. Why does Pete look like he’s about to kill himself in almost all of these pictures? Cheer the fuck up, dude. I know that emo used to be cool and what not, but get in the now. Enjoy your family and what you’ve got. Now it’s big boy time, so how ’bout we see a big boy smile?

I know there are like horses and shit at the Kentucky Derby, and that’s all great, but I really don’t care about that because EVERYONE LOOKS SO CUTE! The Kentucky Derby could very well be my favorite red carpet event for fashion, and I don’t care what that says about me as a person, I unapologetically love it.
Above is Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz being the most adorably dressed people in the entire world. Seriously, look at them and tell me they’re not. You cannot do it, and if you could, it would be a lie.
Below are assorted pictures of my favorite looks, including Jesse Spencer, Rebecca Romijn, Fran Drescher, and Johnny Weir.

Pete Wentz took his son Bronx on a walk around NYC yesterday and that little muffin was crying his face off the whole time. Poor guy was probably freezing, not to mention freaked out that there were guys taking his picture so that an asshole like me could later buy those photos and then post commentary about them on the Internet. It’s either one of those things or his father’s hair smells as bad as I assume it does. I don’t hate Pete, but I hope the dude turned around and gave his kid a cookie or something. Regardless, it’s clearly hard work being one of the cutest babies in the game.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz decided to throw the photogs in New York for a loop when they stepped out wearing these masks yesterday in NYC. The two went for a walk around their ‘hood in matching all black outfits and stopped in to an antique store and a costume store, where they picked up their new face gear. What do you think about the two of them as a couple? Part of me thinks they could make it work forever because they seem so similar, but another part of me is convinced that once they outgrow their childlike attitudes, they will outgrow each other.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz kept their baby Bronx alive for an entire year and yesterday they celebrated their glorious achievement by throwing their little boy a Sponge Bob themed birthday party.
You’d think that they’d do something Jungle Book related because the two are so obsessed with the Kipling book-turned Disney Classic that they got their son’s middle name from the main character (Mowgli– ew.), but they went with the Square Pants thing per the babies (kind of) request. “[Bronx] likes Bob and he likes guitar – which he calls ‘itar,’ so we’re going to have a SpongeBob party for him,” Pete told People. I would think that’d mean a Bob Marley themed birthday party, but I guess “special cake” would be lost on a one year old. Or kill him. I’m not suggesting people give their kids cake laced with marijuana, I’m just sayin’.
Perhaps my favorite part of this story is the nearly illiterate Tweets by the Simpson sisters made to commemorate the special day:
From Ashlee: “BX’s 1st bday tomorrow! My angel is going to be a year!! The greatest year of my life :)”
And Jessica: “Happy Birthday to my precious angel on earth!!! Bronx is 1 today!! I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!! I can’t believe it has been a year already.”
I’m going to be really sad when I have to write up a post next summer about how that poor baby got napped from Joe and Tina Simpson’s backyard by a coyote.
