Fall Out Boy member Pete Wentz gives the Twitterverse an intimate glimpse of the one place where stars are usually left alone: the bath.
Back in 2011, Wentz promised to answer questions from his fans if he gets more than three million followers on Twitter. Seven years later, the rocker finally came through with his pledge after a fan reminded him of it online.
Surrounded by purple candles, bubbles, and Mania-themed lavender-scented bath bombs, Wentz kicked off the Q&A session by answering easy questions such as his favorite song from Fall Out Boy's new LP Mania "Bishops Knife Trick", favorite pizza deep-dish, and his favorite things about Chicago.
"I'm about to go Mariah Carey on this thing," he comments.
"This does feel very intimate, I agree. Too intimate, possibly?" Wentz added a bit later in response to a fan's comment.

The Twitter Q&A session dubbed the #FallOutBath lasted more than 30 minutes, with Wentz answering each question extensively, particularly on Fall Out Boy music and new album.
Wentz also shared his thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well some of his other favorite films and television shows.
"I didn't like it when I first went to it [when] it came out, because I went with a lot of expectations for it," he says. "And then I went a week later or two weeks later with my nine-year-old and I liked it a lot and realized it's a really good film. And it really does progress the idea of Star Wars, I think. Maybe it's not a Star Wars film that's designed for my generation."
Surprisingly, the conversation between Wentz and his fans even included advice on showers and exfoliation after a fan complemented his facial skin.
"You have to close your pores also with cold water, so exfoliate with warmer water," Wentz explains. "Even though people say don't take too hot of a shower, I still take hot showers. But close your pores, always."
The intimate fan interaction was a casual yet successful one, garnering 88,000 views so far on Wentz's Twitter page. The hashtag even became a trending topic on the social media platform.
Wentz and his bandmates are a hit at the charts with new studio album Mania. The top spot on next week's Billboard 200 chart is either Fall Out Boy's Mania or original soundtrack of The Greatest Showman. Both albums are projected to earn 105,000 to 110,000 equivalent album units each for the week.
