Ireland Has Legalized Same-Sex Marriage By Popular Vote

“Congratulations to the Yes side. Well done.”

Congratulations are in order for the people of Ireland who have, by a wide margin, voted to approve marriage equality in their country. It looks like the YES for Marriage Equality ballot proposal passed by a 2 to 1 margin in an absolutely historic vote for the country. Today is amazing day for the people of Ireland, yes, but it is also a glorious day for the push for full equal treatment of all people in favor of marriage equality around the world. While we, here in the US, await the Supreme Court decision that will determine the fate of marriage equality in our country (due to be handed down next month), let’s take heart and celebrate this happy, happy day with our Irish friends.

Kendrick Lamar Doesn’t Love Me Back, Gets Engaged To His High School Sweetheart, Whitney Alford

Worst. News. Ever./Congrats to the Happy Couple!

Have any of you ever wondered about your celebrity crush, and whether or not he/she is single? But instead of just giving it a quick Google, you decide that you physically and emotionally cannot handle the truth—you’d rather live in darkness and ignorance, and just idly hope that they are single, rather than get confirmation that they’re in some sort of amazing relationship with a lovely person they’ve known and loved since they were a teen? So yeah, I’ve been doing that since Kendrick Lamar first came on the scene, and I’ve been dreading the day this news came out. Not only does he (SOB) have a girlfriend, but they’ve also (SOB) been together since the beginning of time, and (SOOOOOOOOoooooobbbbb) they are now engaged and very happy. Click inside for more. Or whatever.

Angelina Jolie Attends The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards With Her Kids (And They Are Adorable, Obvs)

Her first public post-surgery appearance

Last week, Angelina Jolie bravely shared with the world her decision to have preemptive surgery to have her ovaries removed in order to reduce her cancer risk. Last night, she made her way to The Forum here in the Los Angeles area to attend the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel as her dates. I guess the “story” is that yesterday’s event was Angelina‘s first public event since she underwent her surgery but for me, the real story is that she enjoyed a really fun outing with her children. Look at the ecstatic joy on her daughters’ faces when Angelina won her Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Villain for her starring role in Maleficent. It’s insane how big her daughters have gotten but it’s really, really amazing to see them looking so well … and so happy and proud of their mom. Check out the photos in this gallery, I promise that they will brighten up your day.
