First there were four sets of footprints in the sand, then three, then two, until there was just one. Brendon Urie has carried Panic! At The Disco since he was a teenager, from a band literally playing in the garage to an arena-filling solo project. He’s acutely aware of the public perspective that he’s held some sort of fascist dictatorship over the moniker, picking off people one by one until a sole survivor remained. If there’s anything Urie wants to make clear, though, it’s this: He’s not the enemy. He never was.

The recipe can be made in a few minutes, and eaten immediately, although the balls firm up if given an hour in the fridge. Store them in an airtight container for up to one week, or freeze them for up to one month.

HAYLEY KIYOKO didn’t meet another openly gay woman until she was 20 years old. Stating she grew up in an extremely closeted environment, Kiyoko’s career has been nothing but the opposite of her upbringing. Finding solace and company in music and writing from an early age—she took the fears, desires and stories she’s harbored for over two years and laid them out in her debut album “Expectations.” The album acts as a culmination project of Kiyoko’s evolution from her previous EP’s and stamps this moment in her life where a full length album was required. Each song is laced with the words of a woman who knows her space and is comfortable with wanting more, because she understands that the opinions of others aren’t the driving force of her life. But it wasn’t always that way.
