“Michael Jackson has been a part of my life for as long I have heard music. He in my mind is the ultimate entertainer of our generation. I can remember exact moments of my life based on Michael Jackson songs and videos.”
--- Pete Wentz
“I really want to meet Michael Jackson so badly. I’m Michael Jackson obsessed. All I watch is 'Moonwalker’ – it’s my favorite movie of all time.”
--- Pete Wentz , interview with The Advocate, 2007
"There will never be another. He was the royalty of American culture. I could measure the growth of my life based on him. I have never felt such public grief for someone I have never met. A legend. I practiced his moves in the mirror ... We lost the last legendary entertainer of my generation. I feel lost without his presence. Sorry if this is kind of jumbled and emotional. I don't even know what to say."
