"Scandals" halt Wentz's political ambitions

Rex Features

Pete Wentz has admitted that he would struggle to launch a political career because he has led such a scandalous lifestyle.

The Fall Out Boy bass player told The Guardian that his love of tattoos could also act against him should he make a move to politics.

"I could never pursue a career in politics," he said. "I've been involved in far too many scandals. My mum says 'You have too many tattoos'. Yeah, too many scandals and too many tattoos."

He continued: "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."
