Panic! at the Disco Goes Topless for “Girls/Girls/Boys”

I’ve never been in the naked presence of Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie. But thanks to his band’s video for their latest single, I feel I can cross this item from my bucket list. Toned and glistening in oil, Urie stands unclothed all the way down to his shaved inguinal canal for the full three-minute electronica tune. Presumably, this is all an homage to D’Angelo’s infamous nude-to-his-hips video for the 2000 single “Untitled (How Does it Feel).” Whereas that song was a sexy R&B slow-jam, Urie’s is skittering dance-pop that would’ve made a nice B-side to Pat Benatar’s “Love Is a Battlefield.” Is the 26-year-old Summerlin-spawned Mormon gunning for an upcoming cover of QVegas? He could easily, um, pull it off. Since he married his girlfriend in April, I’m curious to know why he waited to show everyone most of the goods. Maybe to rub the fact that’s he now off limits in the faces of fans? ★★☆☆☆
