In case you missed it, Panic! at the Disco frontman, Brendon Urie recently teamed with Taylor Swift on "Me" the first single off her forthcoming album, 'Lover' due out August 23rd.  In the time since, the pair have made numerous television appearances performing the collaboration, popped up on each others' Instagram stories, and more or less have taken to identifying as friends.

Which brings us to our latest development in Swiftland, when Justin Bieber manager Scooter Braun (I know, I know, bare with me for a sec) purchased holdings in Taylor's former label, Big Machine Records, thus coming into possession of the master tapes for all her previous works. You can read more on that, here. Needless to say, TSwift did not take too kindly to this, hitting tumblr to alert the world, albeit with a bit of her own spin, on just how shady Braun has been to her, and how treacherous this move is on her former recording home's part.

RE-ENTER URIE, who took to his personal live stream to sound off on Braun, Swift's former label, and the industry at large, taking sides with Swift, exclaiming *deep breath*:

"This fucking Scooter Braun shit, what a piece of shit right? It just broke my heart when I read Taylor's statement. Sounds about right! Toxic dudes doing toxic bullshit in this toxic industry.

I thought that was illegal to do a business turn behind the people who wrote the stuff. Like you can’t do it without their knowledge. There’s a certain amount of time legally that you have to let the people know. It’s like giving a wallet to the police and then they say, ‘Alright, if no one picks it up in 72 hours, it’s yours.’ Like there’s gotta be a precedent for that — not toxic masculinity, not just these f*cking idiots who are just shitty.

Sending love to Taylor Swift, always dude… He doesn’t sound like a very good person, not right now, huh? I stand with Taylor, of course: It’s a shit show to learn how awful people can be… just for a profit… just for monetary gain and maybe some clout. I don’t know what kind of clout they feel they deserve because it’s like dude screwed over a young artist early on and knew they were screwing them over. What a fuckin asshole. everybody involved in that is a piece of shit man."

Well, I guess we know where he lands on the whole thing.  

Mind you Swift's own father sits on the board of Big Machine, so it's unlikely they weren't aware of this deal going down but hey, what do I know, I'm just a blogger/dj. And while we remain fairly certain you'll never hear "Me" on our airwaves, you'll certainly be hearing more from Panic! and their latest "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" on our airwaves soon.
