Madonna And Anderson Cooper Share A Big Smooch At The GLAAD Awards

Madonna And Anderson Cooper Share A Big Smooch At The GLAAD AwardsMadonna and Anderson Cooper embraced in a a big smooch as she presented the CNN newsman and talk show host with an honor at the New York edition of the GLAAD Media Awards at the Marriott Marquis.

‘Promoting equality’

Cooper was the recipient of this year’s Vito Russo Award, which goes to an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality.


‘For the community’

The Material Girl, who memorably kissed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during a performance at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, also left people buzzing about her outfit. She was decked out in a full Boy Scout’s uniform — her version of it anyway, featuring special touches like fingerless gloves and a cowboy hat — to protest the organization’s ban on gay scouts and scout leaders.

“I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join,” she told the crowd. “I think that’s [messed] up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community.”

During his acceptance speech, Cooper thanked his boyfriend since 2009, Benjamin Maisani.

Kim Kardashian Tells Oprah About Relationship With Kanye West

Kim Kardashian may have finally found the right man in current beau Kanye West. That, at least, is what she suggests in the second part of her interview with Oprah Winfrey, which airs this Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on OWN.

“It’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things,” Kim tells Oprah. “I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there’s so many similarities in our life that … I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space.”

Kim credits her chemistry with West to the couple’s long friendship: The two met a decade ago and have been friends for “six or seven years,” she says: ”I don’t know why it took so long for us to get together, but I think I needed to go through all my experiences.”


That’s not the only relationship that Oprah explores on Sunday, however. During a sit-down with Khloé Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom, Oprah asks, “Do you feel pressured to make this marriage work because it’s in the public?”

Says Khloé: “I don’t feel the pressure by outsiders. … I’m not someone who’s easily influenced by the public. … My marriage is my real life. I feel the pressure from me – from myself – to be a great wife.”

So, what can you say about Kim’s current relationship with Kanye? Do you think they will go a long way together?

Jay-Z Announces Support For Gay Marriage

One more HUGE role model for America has stepped up to throw his support behind same-sex marriage. Jay-Z, one of the most popular and most successful rappers on the planet, applauded Barack Obama’s decision to announce his support for marriage equality when he told sources:

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business, and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.”


The Made In America Music Festival organizer isn’t worried about whether Obama’s stance on the issue will gain or cost the president votes either. Instead, he believes it’s just “about people,” and continued:

“It’s really not about votes. It’s about people. I think it’s the right thing to do as a human being.”

This is exactly the kind of momentum that makes this movement IMPOSSIBLE to defeat. Sorry conservatives, but the change you fear is already HERE and more of it is on the way! EQUALITY FOR ALL!

Are you happy that more and more popular personalities are stepping up to openly support gay marriage? Give us a shout out!
