In our exclusive interview, Brendon tells us how he's learned to accept his anxiety and deal with it effectively...

Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie has opened up about the ways he copes with his anxiety in an exclusive interview with PopBuzz.

Chatting backstage in London for this week's PopBuzz Podcast, Brendon revealed his coping mechanisms that he uses to deal with anxiety and how he has come to accept it as a vital part of his personality.


Fear is a mechanism that we have naturally just to protect ourselves basically and survive. So that's how I think of it now. I just think of it like "well, I need this anxiety to survive". It's helping me feel a certain thing and maybe I should look into why I'm feeling that way.

Brendon also told us some of the ways he relaxes, namely meditation and watching nature documentaries (well, The Jungle Book at least - that counts as a documentay right?).
