Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, the cherubic baby daddy of emo, is now the father of a little emo princess. Mikey Way, bassist for MCR, Levar Burton announced via Twitter, (uggghh), that Bandit Lee was born yesterday night weighing in at 6 lbs., 5.6 oz and is “healthy and happy.” Her mother “Lyn Z” or Lindsey, Mindless Self Indulgence bassist, is said to be in great spirits.
I wonder if having 2 emo musician parents will cancel out Bandits chances of a similiar fate. She’ll probably grow up, change her name to Ethel and become a nun or a librarian.
It has been pointed out that Levar Burton “tweeted” the announcement of the birth and Mikey Way “retweeted” it shortly thereafter. So RT means retweet? I could care less.
