Brendon Urie is married to a woman ‘but I find myself being attracted to dudes all the time’
07 November 2013

Panic at the Disco’s new single Girls/Girls/Boys celebrates bisexuality and frontman Brendan Urie says he knows a thing or two about being attracted to both sexes.

‘It’s really kind of loosely based on the majority of relationships I’ve been in, even now with my wife. Yeah, she’s attracted to girls, and I think some men are extremely attractive and I don’t wanna hide it,’ he tells PrideSource while discussing the song.

‘I have no shame in it,’ he says of his attractions. ‘I like being able to shed some light on that. It’s nice to be able to open up like that. I feel like (bisexuality) needs to be celebrated, because a lot of times I feel like people are ashamed and they hide it and they might be a little scared to open up about it.’

Urie says being able to celebrate bisexuality ‘is a big step for me.’

‘I find myself being attracted to dudes all the time,’ he says. ‘I’m like, "Wow, that’s a beautiful man." There’s no shame in it; that’s how I feel. To stifle that would probably bring on stress and probably make somebody homophobic.’

So is he bisexual?

‘I guess if I had to classify myself, I’d say I’m straight,’ he says but adds: ‘I have, in the past, experimented in other realms of homosexuality and bisexuality.’

After having done the research, he knows what he likes.

‘Overall I’m more attracted to women,’ Urie says. ‘Like with my wife, I’m just so insanely in love and attracted to my wife that I go, "Well, OK, my love of musicals can’t trump that I love pussy."’
