TORONTO — Singer Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco has opened up about his sexuality, admitting “it’s fun to dabble!”

He admitted: “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.”

The 26-year-old musician, who married Sarah Orzechowski in April, told Between The Lines both he and his wife are open-minded.

“She’s attracted to girls, and I think some men are extremely attractive,” Urie said. “I have no shame in it.”

He said he has “experimented” with men but considers himself “more attracted to women.”

The singer said the Panic! at the Disco single “Girls/Girls/Boys” — in which he sings “Love is not a choice” — could be a bisexual anthem.

Urie added: “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.

“Being able to do that is a big step for me.”
