Brendon Urie recalls moving after fans attempt break-in on Taylor Swift doc
'Miss Americana' is available to stream now on Netflix!January 31, 2020
It was revealed that Urie would be making an appearance in the film when the preview dropped earlier this month.
In the trailer, Urie and Swift are seen together going over the lyrics for “ME!”
Titled Miss Americana, the documentary follows Swift’s struggles and joys over the course of several years.
Check out the full trailer to Miss Americana below.
Now, the doc has officially been released and Urie does indeed make an appearance with Swift.
In the segment, Swift asks the Panic! At The Disco frontman if he wants to stay in Los Angeles. Urie reveals that he and his wife are considering moving to Detroit, but aren’t sure if it’s the best idea.
“We talked about getting a place to test it out” he tells Swift. “Then, the fans found out and I had to leave… They would jump the gate and try to open our front door and I was like ‘This isn’t OK, that’s not OK.”
Though he doesn’t say exactly, it does sound like Urie is talking about when he had to move in 2017.
Urie’s home address was public for quite some time, and while he’s always been grateful for the amazing fan letters and gifts he received, a number of fans actually showed up at his door and it escalated too far.
In his own words, Urie wrote, “As time progressed, so did the amount of letters. Not just letters and gifts, this soon changed into visits and constant harassment from fans. It got so bad that I didn’t feel safe in my own home.”

The warning came as Hall tweeted about how some fans inappropriately touch Urie during the excursion.
Just a heads up folks. I’m done with this crap of kissing Brendon during the “death walk”. If I see it, you will be kicked out of the show right away. The end.

In the documentary, Swift responded with a story of her own about when someone broke into her apartment and slept in her bed.
“There’s a difference between ‘I connect with your lyrics’ and “I want to break in,'” she states.
They are also seen in the studio and it turns out Urie was actually sick during the recording of “ME!”
When talking about the music video, Swift said she wanted Urie to channel everything that made him him.
“Whatever makes you, you,” she exclaims. Emo kids, theatre, dance sequences, La La Land!
Sounds about right.
Fans of the artists are excited the two were seen on screen together, with some hoping more collaborations will come in the future.
