We may have moved on from Panic! At the Disco sometime around our eighth grade year, but we figure now is the time to dredge that back up. The band's frontman has been the center of gay rumors for years, and now Brendon Urie opens up about his homosexual experiences with a frankness and nonchalantness that makes us want to quietly stand next to him snapping in a z-formation.
Urie should probably be entered into some sort of textbook dealing with the topic of how to have a good head on your shoulders when it comes to sexuality. Urie — who married a lady earlier this year — had this to say to PrideSource about attraction:
I find myself being attracted to dudes all the time. 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... I guess if I had to classify myself, I'd say I'm straight. But I have, in the past, experimented in other realms of homosexuality and bisexuality. Overall I'm more attracted to women. 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" [laughs]
This was in response to a tweet Urie sent out last year that claimed that "everyone's a little gay." As someone who went to a liberal arts school I can say with glaring obnoxiousness that I am totally on board with this. This is, after all, why the Kinsey scale exists.
