Go, Petey! Go, Petey! It’s your birthday, it’s your birthday!

Actually, Fall Out Boy bassist and Ashlee Simpson hubby Pete Wentz’s 29th annum was yesterday, June 5. And if you noticed a distinct lack of fanfare marking the majestic occasion, that’s just the way he wants it, according to E! Online.

“The truth is, I hate my birthday,” Wentz admits. “I don’t like it at all. It’s because I’m really bad at receiving presents, so I get really nervous around my birthday, and I really don’t want people to give me presents.”

Wow, dude’s emo to the core. If you were thinking of getting him something despite his objection, make it a hankie. Preferably a black one.

Of course, a guy who has everything, including a budding bromance with super-dreamy crooner John Mayer, really doesn’t need gifts anyway.

It’s just a shame that he has deprived papa Joe Simpson of party photos to peddle.
