Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy has landed the cover story of the August 2008 issue of OUT Magazine. In the interview, he talks about sexuality, his childhood and Andy Warhol:
“Warhol impacted you in the ’80s whether you wanted or not,” he says, but after seeing Piero Manzoni’s Merda d’artista (literally, cans allegedly filled with “artist’s shit”) as a kid, he followed the theme to Warhol. Tributes to his hero fittingly run the gamut, from T-shirts — one has Warhol’s name across the chest of a baseball-style jersey; another is a set of cartoon monster portraits with “Warholier than thou” as tagline — to a new bar with an underground space modeled after Warhol’s less glamorous hangout, Max’s Kansas City.”

This may not come as a surprise, but Michael Stipe, the lead vocal of R.E.M. is indeed gay. He talked to Spin Magazine about his coming out story.
“It was super complicated for me in the ’80s. I was totally open with the band and my family and my friends and certainly the people I was sleeping with. I thought it was pretty obvious. Now I recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there.”
Yeah, who’d knew?
