Brendon Urie Wins Top Rock Album & Top Rock Song | Backstage Interview | BBMAs 2019


– [Interviewer] We’re backstage
at the billboard music awards with Brendon Urie! – Hello again. – [Interviewer] How are you? – I’m doing wonderful, how are you? – [Interviewer] I’m fine,
but who cares about me? – I care!
– [Interviewer] You just won a billboard music award
on stage a second ago. – I know.
– [Interviewer] You got two tonight!
– Two. – [Interviewer] Two! – It’s daunting, it’s very
overwhelming in the best way, and I’m just so grateful,
really, I’m so appreciative. – [Interviewer] It was
top rock album and.. – Top rock song. – [Interviewer] Top rock song. – Yeah. – [Interviewer] You know the
great thing about the billboard awards is that the awards
are based on your performance on our charts, and that’s
all based on how fans react to your music and buy your
music, and stream your music and does that make the
award kind of mean something a little bit special to you? – Absolutely, it’s nothing
more validating than the people who really care about your
craft, when you’re sharing it with them for them to vote
you into this amazing award. Yeah man, I’m eternally
grateful to my fans, there’s no reason for me
to be here without them. I mean the only reason I get to do this is because they allow me to
do this, they continue to love and support and it blows my
mind in the best way possible and I am so happy. – [Interviewer] Does it feel
like Panic! is at like.. it just seems like you’ve
been on this steady climb like things just keep
continually getting better and better, does it feel
that way to you too? – Absolutely, and I don’t understand why. – [Interviewer] Yes!
– Thank you! I can’t figure out why, but
I’m not gonna question it too much because I’m
just incredibly happy. – [Interviewer] And obviously
you opened the show tonight, along with Taylor Swift. – Yes. – [Interviewer] Performing your
new single together, “ME!”. – Yes. – [Interviewer] How was
that, performing and opening the show, how’d it go, how’d you feel? – It’s up, ineffable. I’ll say this about Taylor though. I’ve been a fan of hers for a
long time, and the first time that we met, she’s so personable
and bubbly’s probably not the right word, but she really is. I mean she’s such a warm
and welcoming person and the fact that she has
a passion for the things she’s doing just validates it
for me that that’s why this matters and this is why I feel so good, because I do the same. I wanna inspire myself
and my fans to do the same and she’s incredible, man. We just had so much fun
working on that song and her ideas for videos and
the performance, it’s like, I take no credit, I literally
just.. I’ll show up! I’ll do whatever you ask. But it was really fun,
she’s really collaborative and just a blast to work with. – [Interviewer] How did
the call actually happen, did she herself call
you, how’d that work out? – Yeah, I was on tour
actually this last January and she texted me this very
sweet.. we have friends who are managers, managers who
were friends, and she texted me this very sweet long text
that I teared up at the end because I didn’t expect
something like that, for a first text you know, for
the start of a relationship. She sent me the song and
I just gushed over her, basically reciprocating the
love saying I am such a massive fan of yours, and I can’t wait
to work with you on this song and I haven’t had the song out of my head since I heard it first, and
it’s been so hard to keep it a secret and now I don’t
have to and I’m relieved. – [Interviewer] How long have you had this secret hidden away? – It’s been about four months,
so not a terribly long time but long enough.
– [Interviewer] Yeah, huh. – I’m proud of myself I kept it. – [Interviewer] Are we gonna see you guys do the song again together maybe? – Oh I hope so, we’ve talked
about some performances and some shows, yeah. – [Interviewer] You may have
not been allowed to say that, but too late now.
– Yikes! – [Interviewer] The Taylor
team is gonna swoop in. – I’m done, chh, it’s over. – [Interviewer] So what’s
next up for Panic!, I mean obviously you have all
the Taylor stuff happening, – Yeah. – [Interviewer] But what about
you guys, what about Panic!? – I’m home now..
– [Interviewer] Chilling? – ..and we’re taking some
time off and I’m chilling, and I’m streaming and I’m
hanging out with my fans online and it’s amazing, but I thought
I would take a little more time off and I’m already starting music. Not with anything planned
in mind, but just working on some ideas, I can’t help
myself so I don’t think it’ll be too long before
another Panic! Record. – [Interviewer] When you
say ideas, how fully formed are those ideas? – Some are two minute
long just instrumentals, some are 30 second voice memos,
gibberish, some are inside jokes written on napkins at bars, there’s all kinds of
different stuff, yeah. – [Interviewer] You actually
still write things out? – Yeah, there’s something
different about having a pen in your hand, the way that
it translates when your brain takes a little longer
to write this thing out. Instead of just typing super
fast, it comes out differently. – [Interviewer] Last
thing, I wanna circle back to the Taylor video.
– Yeah, absolutely. – [Interviewer] I watched
the behind the scenes clip of you and the kitten Benjamin Button. – Oh my god, dude Benjamin Button! – [Interviewer] Isn’t
that the kitten’s name? – Absolutely and when we met
him, we were both gushing over this kitten because the eyes. These bright baby blue eyes,
we were just losing our minds. When I held Benjamin, it was fine, he was like you’re fine, he feels safe. When I gave him to Taylor
he just started purring and he never stopped purring
and that’s when she asked “Is he available?”, he’s
like yeah, “Can I have him?”. So she bought him right there. – [Interviewer] I was like was
there gonna be a cat fight, the two of you over the cat? – I would’ve, my dogs couldn’t
handle that, it was too cute. – [Interviewer] Well, this has been great, congratulations tonight.
– Thank you. – [Interviewer] On the
awards, on the performance, everything that’s happening, so amazing. – I appreciate that, I’m
so stoked to be here.

    I love Brendon Urie and i have for a very long time. But, he is not Rock and he has never been. at this point he is considered Pop and if you want to push it alternative, maybe edgy pop.

    I love Brendon, but the problem is that he don't play rock anymore so i feel like he deserves some award, but definately not for rock album/rock song because pray for the wicked absolutely isn't rock. It's the sound that fans of pop want to hear in rock I mean absolutely pop

    I’m happy beyond words for Beebo, but that doesn’t change how he was objectively robbed at the Grammys by a band that wasn’t even in the right category and was less deserving.

    He's absolutely correct regarding using pen and paper. It really does help your brain work differently, and it helps form new ideas and expand existing ones by taking the time to write with a pen as opposed to tapping it out in turbo mode on a keyboard.
