Janelle Monae Invites You To A Dancin' Sorority Party In 'Electric Lady' - VIDEO

Electric

Janelle Monae has just released a catchy new dance anthem for her song "Electric Lady" and the video has everything you’d expect from the Outkast descendant — cupcake-baking ladies, a retro-futuristic sorority setting, light saber group dancing and a groovealicious houseparty featuring a marching band.

Plus the video shows Monae’s real-life mother at the beginning — score!

The song comes from Janelle Monae’s latest album The Electric Lady. We shared her video for Q.U.E.E.N. (another track from the same album) earlier this year.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP…

Rick Santorum Claims Liberal Americans Have 'Devalued' Marriage: LISTEN

Former presidential candidate and anti-gay speaker Rick Santorum appeared on "Eagle Forum Live," a radio program hosted by Phyllis Schlafly's daughter Anne Cori, and spoke up about the ways in which marriage has become "devalued" by the American public.

RickSantorumSantorum focused mostly on diction around marriage becoming associated purely with "romantic relationships" rather than reproductive purposes.

Right Wing Watch reports:

Rick Santorum said that conservatives need to “reclaim” marriage from the left and “the folks who are trying to change the marriage laws to allow same-sex couples...."

He also warned of polygamy: “If marriage is simply a romantic relationship between two people, and by the way, that’s what it’s devolved to the minds of a lot of Americans, if that’s all that marriage is well then it’s hard to make the argument that any two people or any three or four people shouldn’t be able to get married.”

Rants like his remind us just how tired and flaccid anti-marriage equality arguments have become. Perhaps the worst moment, though, came from Anne Cori, a woman who apparently detests the "celebration of single mothers." Bravo, Ms. Cori on this new low.

Here is Video of the Court Hearing Challenging Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act: WATCH

Tv_uganda

Yesterday we reported that Uganda's Constitutional Court heard a petition challenging the country's Anti-Homosexuality Act.

Uganda's NTV network reported on the proceedings and uploaded the segment to YouTube.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

The Guardian adds:

Judges have adjourned the hearings until Friday, when they are expected to rule on the quorum issue.

Ugandan state lawyers defended the law on Thursday, the second day of the hearings, asking judges to dismiss the petition. "There is no evidence about the quorum," state attorney Patricia Mutesa told the court in the capital, Kampala.

But prominent gay-rights activist Frank Mugisha, one of the petitioners, said he was optimistic that judges would rule in favour of scrapping the law. "I think that we could have a very good judgment tomorrow, and if we get that judgment then it's over – and we just have to celebrate," said Mugisha, who heads the Sexual Minorities Uganda group.

Anti-gay preacher Martin Ssempa, who was also in court, said he feared the "judicial abortion of our bill" due to international pressure.

That Time When Chris Pratt Flashed Amy Poehler 'Snake Out': VIDEO

Poehler_pratt

On The Tonight Show with Seth Meyers last night, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt recalled a Parks and Rec episode in which Amy Poehler was treated to the sight of Star Lord in his birthday suit.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

In related news, Pratt recently told Panzer TV that he stole the suit he wears as Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, and the reason will warm your heart:

"I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone -- say, like, a Russell Wilson, you know -- and go visit kids," Pratt said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who visits children's hospitals every week.

"If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for ['Guardians' character] Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that," Pratt said. "I think that’s awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?"
