Gene Simmons exploded a corner of the internet last week after sharing a photo of his bowl of Shredded Wheat and Oreo O’s cereal with ice cubes floating in the milk.

But it turns out that he’s got a pretty good reason for what some feel is a pretty unusual way to enjoy breakfast.

The KISS singer-bassist broke it down for TMZ, explaining to the gossip site, “Well, yeah, who wants lukewarm milk with your cereal?”

Of course, the Demon doesn’t see why fans are so shocked, sarcastically answering, “That makes a lot of sense, ’cause Kim Jong Un and the rest of the world — and Mr. Putin and all the rest — that’s no controversy.

What I had for breakfast — whether there’s ice in it or not — is earth-shaking.”
