First Ashlee Simpson came to her sister's defense, now her husband and baby-daddy is speaking out about the bizarre scrutiny of Jessica Simpson's 7-pound weight gain. The Fall Out Boy bassist makes a very intelligent point -- if you look beyond his dude locution:

I think that the media puts too harsh of a spotlight on women in general and I think it's a bummer. It's bad for young women. I see it affecting young girls who come to our shows and that's a bummer. Real beauty is on the inside, man.

 Right on, dude, totally.
