Charli talked casting the Panic! At The Disco frontman in the 'Boys' video during an online Q&A session with fans earlier this week.

Charli XCX answered fan questions about working on her incredible video for new single 'Boys' in a recent live stream.

The promo clip, co-directed by the singer, features over 60 famous boys from the world of music, acting, YouTube, fashion and sport including Jay Park, Riz Ahmed, Tom Daley, Cameron Dallas, Joe Jonas and Connor Franta.

But, for the kids in the PopBuzz office, it was the sight of our old friend Brendon Urie posing on a bed of roses that was the most iconic and now Charli has opened up about what it was like to work with the Panic! At The Disco frontman:

"I used to listen to Panic! At The Disco all the time when I was younger so I felt like I had to get Brendon in the video 'cos I loved that album...he's my emo crush. I wanted to created this really cute American Beauty-style scene for him with all these, like, petals falling and he's looking, like, super gorge in a red suit, lieing on the floor being sexy".

Looks like he nailed it tbh.
