She called it "the most emo dinner party ever."

Taylor Swift Went To A Dinner Party With Pete Wentz and Brendon Urie

One might have been able to infer it from her tendency to wear her heart on her sleeve and write heartache-tinged lyrics throughout her career, but now it’s official: Taylor Swift is an emo kid. In her recent interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the popstar talked about getting invited to “the most emo dinner party” at Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie's house.

“I was actually at the most emo dinner party the other night,” Taylor said. “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.”

(This begs the question, is Taylor Swift a Punisher? Just kidding, kind of.)

She then revealed that Pete is her favorite lyricist, other than Lana Del Rey.

“Pete Wentz is probably -- if I had to pick a favorite lyricist -- it would be a tie between him and Lana Del Rey,” she said. “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 Taylor has revealed her love of emo, however. Earlier this year, in her cover story for Rolling Stone, she talked about their influence on her career.

“I love Fall Out Boy so much,” she said. “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.’”

Then, of course, there was also the time they performed together at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
