"What I love is getting polarized opinions," Urie tells Billboard. "I don’t want a middle ground like, ‘Yeah, all right.’ We got a lot of love and a lot of hate. I love that. I want you to love what we’ve done or hate it with a passion." And Urie promises, he means it. "There’s random comments you read, like ‘This dude is a joke’ or that call me a whiny little bitch or whatever. That kind of stuff is fun to me. I love that stuff. Bring it on, man."
Brendon Urie claims in the suit — obtained by TMZ — he lived with a guy named Shane Valdez from 2008 - January, 2010. Urie admits to doing something incredibly stupid — giving his roomie access to his personal bank account to pay shared living expenses.
Urie claims it wasn’t until November 2013 — long after they stopped living together - that he noticed Valdez had made 70 withdrawals totaling $127,269.54.

The biggest summarization of the whole song in general is in the lyric "Love is not a choice," which I completely believe. I'm proud of who I am and I'm gonna act accordingly. It's really kind of loosely based on the majority of relationships I've been in, even now with my wife. Yeah, she's attracted to girls, and I think some men are extremely attractive and I don't wanna hide it. I have no shame in it. I like being able to shed some light on that. It's nice to be able to open up like that.
Is everyone just suffering from foot-in-mouth disease lately? In a recent interview with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, he reveals that the original version of "Miss Jackson" was called "Bad Apple" and contained a Fiona Apple sample of "Every Single Night." However, Apple would not clear the sample. In the interview, Urie says he loves her, but then calls her a "bitch," all before playing the original version of the song. You can see it all in the replies.
I mean, when we left Vegas, we were 17 years old, so we had a bitter attitude. We didn’t have the opportunity to play any shows there because you had to be 21 and over to play any gig, because most of the venues were in bars. So when we left, we were like ‘What the hell?’ We didn’t really get to do anything that we wanted to do. But having gone back now, and getting to be of age and participate in things, you see the world in a different light.

Today is August 6th 2013, and it’s become evident Spencer still needs more time to take care of himself. I can’t expect him to be fighting addiction one minute and be fully immersed in a national tour the next. With all that said, the tour will continue without Spencer while he is away getting the help he needs. Thank you all for your support and kind words.
Panic! at the Disco drummer Spencer Smith wrote a blog detailing his recent struggles with drug addiction. He entered treatment last fall and is now clean.
For the past 4 and a half years I’ve been battling addiction. Well, to be honest, I’ve really been battling it for the last two years. Those first 2 and a half years were spent in a place where I thought I had finally found the correct dosage of my personally prescribed medicine to feel “normal"…..In reality, I was mostly stumbling through my life hoping no one noticed I was high.
Growing up I never used drugs or alcohol. I smoked weed and had my first drink in the same night when I was 19. I loved it, and from that point on...
"It's similar in that it's eclectic;" he told MTV News. "But this time around, the songs are pretty different. One song sounds like it could be an '80s, Depeche Mode type deal, another sounds like a mix of a Toto drum part with, like, weird arena-rock guitars. There were a lot of things I was pulling from; I listened to a lot of hip hop actually, like A$AP Rocky ... all the new stuff that's coming out was blowing my mind.
"Hip hop is doing the new rock thing; there are no rules," he continued. "They can do anything, really. And that's inspiring."
And, in a telling nod to those hip-hop influences, Too Rare also sees a shift...

Current and former members of Panic! At The Disco's fan club have been receiving postcards of a sign saying "Are You Nasty?", possibly referring to Janet Jackson's song "Nasty."
