Shouting out your critics to others sometimes can do a good effect for you, that's exactly what just happened to Fall Out Boy bassist, Pete Wentz who earned himself a contract deal thanks to his critics. Pete who recently blasted out to MTV saying that the music channel hasn't played enough real music lately, got a special present over his words as the cable network signed him to produce and host a new music program.

The new show the channel gives to Pete, will be called F'N MTV which will be a weekly program that features live performance and video premieres. The show set to debut on June 13 at 8 P.M. and from then on will air regularly on Friday nights. The new program won't just be about musicians and their music, but it will also involve music lovers.

Explaining more about the new show, the president of MTV Entertainment, Brian Green said, "F is for feedback, N is for new, and together 'F'N MTV' is the summer music event that brings it all together. Starting in June, MTV will focus on exclusive NEW music video premieres, and via mtv.com, the instantaneous feedback from our audience and culture at large as they make the music their own."

As a start, MTV reportedly have confirmed some famous names to appear at the new show, such as Panic! at the Disco, Flo Rida, The Pussycat Dolls, Duffy, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne and Vampire Weekend. Unfortunately, it is still not clear whether those musicians will all play at the program's launching or not.
