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


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.

See the videos AFTER THE JUMP…

Big Gay Ice Cream Chief Doug Quint Gives the Scoop to CNN Money: VIDEO


Doug Quint, who founded the ever-expanding Big Gay Ice Cream empire, spoke with CNN Money about the rise of his business.

"We made a decision to not be hyper-political about our name and to let it do its own thing for us and we didn't want to tell people too much. We preferred that people make assumptions and in doing so it really created an army of people who were believers in the brand.

Milk and Cookie Shots: PHOTO


By SoHo baker Domique Ansel, inventor of the Cronut.

Set to make their debut at SXSW on Sunday night:

Reps from Dominique Ansel Bakery tell Eater about the inspiration for the dessert — a chocolate cookie "glass" containing a "shot" of milk — came after Ansel tried his first Oreo "a few weeks ago" and was encouraged to eat it with milk, which is not "a natural combination in French culture."

Utah Brewery Offering 'Live and Let Live' Ale to Show Support for Equality, Diversity

WasatchA Park City, Utah-based brewery is showing its support for marriage equality with a new beer made from two similar ingredients, the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Called Live and Let Live, the blonde pale ale was produced using "two beautiful malts and two wonderful hops, all fermented with a pair of yeasts," says Wasatch brewer Dan Burick.

The beer is 4 percent alcohol by volume — that’s 3.2 by weight — and will be available on draft beginning Friday, Valentine’s Day. (See list for specific locations.)

The gray-toned label that customers will see on the tap handle shows what looks to be a couple — possibly two men, maybe two women — in orange parkas embracing as they ride a ski lift.

Writes the brewery on Facebook:

Celebrate diversity in Utah! Live and Let Live.

“Our new beer has an attitude and we believe Live and Let Live will make life better for a lot of people in Utah" says Wasatch founder Greg Schirf. “Some of our political leaders would benefit from a hearty serving of Live and Let Live.”

Live and Let Live is a blonde pale ale built with two beautiful malts and two wonderful hops, all fermented with a pair of yeasts. This will be available on Valentines Day!

The brewery says that the beer is only on tap:

We wanted to get this out while the legislative session was going and didn't have enough time to get it in bottles.

Brewery Sends Pro-Gay 'Protest Beer' to Vladimir Putin: PHOTOS


The Scottish BrewDog brewery has sent a case of 'protest beer' which mocks Russia's ban on 'gay propaganda' to President Vladimir Putin, the BBC reports:

Hello My Name is Vladimir has been made by Aberdeenshire-based BrewDog. The company said half the profits from the sales of the beer would be donated to charities that "represent oppressed minorities around the world".

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: "As Hello My Name is Vladimir is clearly marked 'not for gays' we should bypass the legislation outlawing supposed 'homosexual propaganda'."

The company has sent a case of the beer to President Putin, who is depicted wearing make-up on the bottles.

BrewdogbeerWrites the company in a post on its blog:

Hello, my name is Vladimir. I am a beer for uber hetero men who ride horses while topless and carrying knives. I am a beer to mark the 2014 Winter Olympics. But I am not for gays. Love wrestling burly men on the Judo mat or fishing in your Speedos? Then this is the beer for you!

The sick, twisted legislation brought about in Russia that prevents people from living their true lives is something we didn't want to just sit back and not have an opinion on. Our core beliefs are freedom of expression, freedom of speech and a dogged (no pun intended) passion for doing what we love. Thus, we are donating 50% of the profits from this beer to charitable organisations that support like minded individuals wishing to express themselves freely without prejudice.

This beer is a double IPA brewed with Limonnik berries. We heard they're great for improving sexual performance, so we've sent a case to the Kremlin as we suspect there is someone there who would appreciate a little helping hand.

You can pick up some beer HERE.
