Halsey talked to NME and discussed how her being a fan of emo bands led to her being bullied. She described the time she went to see Panic! At The Disco saying:
“I remember having this wristband from the pit [at one of the shows], and Brendon Urie being on the edge of the stage and acknowledging me…so I wore that wristband every day. I even covered it with plastic when I showered so it wouldn’t fall off.”
She then went on to talk about how one of her bullies at school broke the wristband during an altercation. “I was devastated… I couldn’t understand how somebody could be so mean.”
She later explains how she wound up meeting Brendon Urie over the years and told him of her past bullying experience.
“I went back to my dressing room after [a show of mine he came to recently]…and there was a bouquet of flowers and two plastic Panic! At the Disco wristbands, with a little note that said: “This is to replace the one you lost.”
