A day after her hosting gig at the Oscars, Ellen DeGeneres welcomed winners Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o to her show to rehash last night's pizza-eating, selfie-taking telecast, which drew 43 million viewers, and was the most-watched in the last 10 years.

Leto says he still hasn't watched Dallas Buyers Club and doesn't have plans to.

Ellen also welcomed Edgar the pizza guy and gave him a big tip for delivering all those slices.

Steve King: Gays Don't Deserve Equal Rights Because Homosexuality Can't Be 'Independently Verified': VIDEO


Congressman Steve King (R-IA) told Des Moines' WHO TV that he disagrees with Jan Brewer's veto of Arizona's SB 1062, the bill that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against gays based on religious beliefs, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said King:

"When you’re in the private sector and you’re an individual entrepreneur with God-given rights that our founding fathers defined in the Declaration, you should be able to make our own decisions on what you do in that private business."

King went on to argue that homosexuality is "self-professed behavior"

"That’s what they’re trying to protect is special rights for self-professed behavior."

King added:

“If it’s not specifically protected in the Constitution, then it’s got to be an immutable characteristic, that being a characteristic that can be independently verified and cannot be willfully changed.”

Gay Couple in Myanmar Makes History with First Public Gay Wedding Ceremony: VIDEO


A gay couple in Myanmar, where homosexuality is illegal, took a bold step in that conservative nation and held a public wedding ceremony, AFP reports:

Tin Ko Ko and Myo Min Htet exchanged rings in an upmarket Yangon hotel Sunday, in the latest sign of changing social mores in the Southeast Asian nation as it emerges from the shadow of military dictatorship.

The marriage does not enjoy any legal status but followed the customs of other Myanmar weddings, with the two men arriving in solemn procession followed by six groomsmen in front of some two hundred guests.

"My family accepted me. I am so glad that my parents were understanding... but he had to overcome many difficulties from his family," said Tin Ko Ko, 38, of his partner in an emotional speech.

The couple has been together for 10 years. The laws against homosexuality are not strictly enforced.
