A look back at today's top stories
The 55th edition of the Grammy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night and Frank Ocean was one of the winners, much to Chris Brown's chagrin. After the awards, Justin Timberlake dropped his latest song called "Mirrors". Beware, it's very long. A very dressed down Adam Lambert used the post-Grammy platform to sneak a clip of his cover of Rihanna's "Stay". It's been forever but The Postal Service also has a new song out.
Also Rob James-Collier sat down with New York Magazine and talked about what it is like to be a gay in the Downton Abbey era.
In a move that seems to have surprised everyone, gay-hating Pope Benedict XVI has announced that he will resign effective February 28. No word on how much his replacement will hate gays, but my guess is probably a lot. Famous Pope photo destroyer Sinead O'Connor is fully behind the decision.
With the backing of a special education teacher, some hateful high schoolers in Indiana are trying to ban gays from their prom. In Ohio, a principal at a Catholic High School has been fired for posting a pro-gay marriage statement on a blog. LGBT activists have set their sights on Sweet Cakes, the bigoted Oregon bakery that would not sell a cake to a lesbian couple. And if you're a lonely Westboro Baptist Church member looking for someone with whom you can share your ridiculous world view, boy do we have the site for you!
