The first thing we noticed about Panic! at the Disco's new video for "Girls/Girls/Boys" is that frontman Brendon Urie is naked. Very naked.

And while it was clearly inspired by D'Angelo's iconic 2000 video, "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," the subject matter of the song goes much deeper. Brendon sings, "Girls love girls and boys/ And never did I think that I could be caught in the way you got me/ But girls love girls and boys/ And love is not a choice."

"Girls do love girls and boys," Urie told NPR. "Girls are just more sexual in nature, much more so than guys."

He continued, "A lot of times people want to label something just to make themselves feel comfortable. They wanna call this person gay or this person straight. I have had similar experience with homosexuality, with bisexuality, and that's something I feel comfortable talking about.

"It's not something anyone should have to hide, and that goes along with the message of the song, that it's important to know who you are, to be able to be proud of that, and have the courage behind your convictions. People can say whatever they want; it doesn't matter unless you let it affect you."
