No matter how much you may want to deny it, Taylor Swift is one of us. The singer might crank out pop hit after pop hit, but she has officially joined scene royalty at the self-described “most emo dinner party” alongside Pete Wentz and Brendon Urie.
Swift hit Beats 1 with Zane Lowe where she discussed her latest album Lover, getting into character for the upcoming Cats film, and most importantly, that epic dinner party.
“I was actually at the most emo dinner party the other night,” Swift begins. “Brendon Urie and Sarah, his amazing wife, had me over. I show up, and it’s like Brendon and Pete Wentz sitting next to each other, and I just got to ask them every single question.
“Pete Wentz is probably—if I had to pick a favorite lyricist—it would be a tie between him and Lana Del Rey,” Swift continues. “‘Blank Space’ is a song that’s just zingers, one after another after another, which I definitely learned from listening to Fall Out Boy.”

This isn’t the first time Swift has given a nod to the FOB bassist/lyricist. Last month, the singer spoke highly of the band in her Rolling Stone cover story.
The pop superstar credited the band as massive artistic influences for her before quoting lyrics from their classic track “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down.”
“I love Fall Out Boy so much,” Swift told Rolling Stone. “Their songwriting really influenced me, lyrically, maybe more than anyone else. They take a phrase and they twist it. ‘Loaded God complex/ Cock it and pull it’? When I heard that, I was like, ‘I’m dreaming’.”
The dinner party also isn’t the first time Swift has crossed paths with Wentz. Just six years ago, she teamed up with FOB to perform at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Check out that throwback below.
