I guess this is really impressive if you have a party of 200 people who really want foamy bottles of beer immediately. However, I would like to get my hands on one of those nifty contraptions that he uses.
katy perry beach boys dispute
Let's get this clear, the Beach Boys don't have a dispute with Katy Perry or her impressive body…of work. However, the people who own the rights to the Beach Boys song California Girls do have an issue.

  1. Is that Katy Perry/Beach Boys thing true? I hope it is that would be too funny, lol. Hi Konway I'm Emma you may know my other half Drew he recommended your blog to me and I'm glad he did it's very cool.
