Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz tells mtvU he once was so “completely lost and out of control” he tried to commit suicide. “I got in my car. I remember I was listening to Jeff Buckley doing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and sat there and took a bunch of [anxiety drug] Ativan in a Best Buy parking lot,” the 28-year-old explained. “And I called up my manager because I was, at that point, completely out of my head with Ativan. And I was talking to him and I was slurring my words, so he called my mom and my mom called me and she came and got me and we went to the hospital.” Wentz, who is participating in the Jed Foundation’s Half Of Us campaign, said he’s coming forward to encourage young people seek out professional help.
