These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
After a three-year hiatus, Fall Out Boy is back with its fifth studio album, the tongue-in-cheek titled "Save Rock and Roll," which debuted at the No. 1 spot on iTunes on Monday.

I really didn't do it, it's just somehow through glaring accidents of verbiage, I end up accidentally getting myself killed.
Pete: I think that conversation just killed me.
What is the strangest thing you've ever received from a fan?
Pete: I think probably bloody razor blades.
Patrick: It wasn't what it was, it was where it was. I got a little package of letters to my house, but not addressed to my house. Someone had dropped it off and that felt really insane. It was a fan from another country that had just left something at my house.
