My interview with Patrick Stump can be found here. Stump opens up about his new solo career, the challenges of finding his own voice, being comfortable as a musician, and the past and future of Fall Out Boy.
"Career wise, [going solo] really was nothing to lose. Thereís nothing worse that anyone could say about me as a performer, Iíve heard everything. Thereís nothing worse anyone could assume about my motivations. I think it made the record a little bit more pop to me because I love pop music. Iím not scared of saying it anymore because Iíve already been called a sell out. Iíve already been called the worst things in the world. I donít have guilty pleasures because Iím comfortable with who I am and Iím comfortable with where I am."
