Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie Gets Showered By Glitter, Balls, Pickles And Chicken Wings In ‘This Is Gospel’ - VIDEO

Urie

If you haven’t eaten today, you’re in luck because bisexual singer Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco and his piano version of “This Is Gospel” literally has all the ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner (with some play time and cucumbers thrown in just to keep everyone healthy).

While he plays, his piano gets showered with glitter, smiley balls, Froot Loops, milk, eggs, glazed chicken wings and spaghetti and meatballs. No idea what raining meatballs have to do with a passionate song about rebelling against conformity, but Urie sounds so great doing it, it’s better to just sit back and enjoy the feast, while not thinking too much about how he kept playing with tinsel, cereal and spaghetti mucking up the keys.

We’ve also got the intense video for the original rock version of “This Is Gospel” as well as a “making of” for the piano version below.

I'm Gay, LGBT: The 57 Most Powerful Coming Outs of 2013

2013

UPDATED!!!

Due to four notable December announcements - from an Australian actor, a professional marksman, an Olympic figure skater, and a beloved morning TV show host, we've updated this list to provide a more complete look back at those who decided to come out in 2013. Enjoy.

*************

"I would like to consider myself a 'whatever,' Maria Bello said this month in a column in the New York Times, revealing that after two relationships with men (one of which produced a child) she had fallen in love with a woman.

Bello's decision to come out while consciously eschewing a label is a sentiment echoed by many of those on this year's list who felt no need to declare themselves L-G-B or T but still found it necessary for some reason, like Hot97 DJ Mister Cee, to declare their "sexual freedom".

The British Olympic diver Tom Daley told UK talk show host Jonathan Ross, "Everything is all pretty new so I don't see any point in putting a label on it - gay, bi, straight, any of those kind of labels. All that I feel happy about at the moment is that I'm dating a guy and couldn't be happier, it shouldn't matter who I'm dating and I hope people can be happy for me."

Actress Michelle Rodriguez echoed that fluidity in a characteristically blunt manner, responding to people who call her a "lesbo":  "Eh, they're not too far off. I've gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too f---ing curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks."

High school senior Jacob Rudolph went another route, adopting all the labels. He told his high school class, in a video that went viral: "I've been acting every single day of my life. You see, I've been acting as someone I'm not. Most of you see me every day. You see me acting the part of 'straight' Jacob, when I am in fact LGBT."

RudolphRudolph later told Thomas Roberts: "I intended to come out as an LGBT and not say bisexual or gay or straight because I feel like those are the labels of the past. Especially in modern times when people are really questioning who they like and what they like I think that saying 'I'm bisexual', it could change in the future, I could be exclusively for one sex or another. So I think that putting it in a more general term like LGBT is extraordinarily appropriate even though I'm not a lesbian or a transgender."

But while the eschewing of labels is a major trend this year, there are still plenty of people happy to declare, "I'm gay" — though fewer are doing it on the front covers of magazines and many more are using more subtle forms of delivery, like the mention of a "husband" or "partner' buried in the third page of a magazine profile, or by posting an Instagram photo with a significant other.

One thing is certain. The act of coming out in 2013 remains as powerful as ever. Though tolerance, acceptance and equality have made great strides this year, there are still many pockets of the U.S., and certainly many countries abroad where LGBT people are forced to hide because being open about their sexuality would threaten their lives and their livelihoods.

Though coming out might be greeted more and more with comments like "yawn", "No disrespect intended, but DUH!", or "who cares?" from the social media peanut gallery, we should applaud the trolls in these cases, because they're one more example that progress is being made.

Panic! At The Disco Singer Brendon Urie Is A Little Bit Gay: VIDEO

Urie

Brendon Urie, frontman for the band Panic! at The Disco, recently revealed to PrideSource that he's "dabbled" in bisexuality, having had relationships with both men and women:

Gay rumors about you have been circulating since the beginning of your career. And last year you tweeted, "Everyone's a little gay." Do you truly believe that for yourself and for other people?

Oh yeah, definitely. It's natural. 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.

How do you label yourself sexually, then?

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)

A straight dabbler?

Yeah, sure. It's fun to dabble!

Panic! at The Disco has also released a music video for their new single "Girls/Girls/Boys," a bisexual anthem of sorts, that features Urie paying homage to D'Angelo's famous "Untitled (How Does it Feel)" video that showcased an almost entirely naked D'Angelo and not much else.
