Now it's Pete Wentz's turn to defend Jessica Simpson.
Attending the VH1 Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash in Tampa, Florida, Ashlee's hubby tells ET, "I feel like, as a country in particular, we put so many ideas and regulations and thoughts into the heads of young women -- that they have to look and feel a certain way or else they're not good enough or they're not pretty enough.
"It's like the cheesiest thing ever to say, but like, who you are is way more important than how you look or any of that."
Speaking of which, Wentz is not only a philosopher but a musician. He and his band Fall Out Boy will be going on tour in April.
