The Democratic Party Moves To Add Support For Marriage Equality To Their Party Platform

The Democratic Platform Drafting Committee responsible for drafting the official party platform for the Democratic Party has decided to add language that expressly outlines their support for marriage equality in the United States of America. What this means is that if this new language is approved, the philosophy of the Democratic Party will officially include support for same-sex marriage. This is important because when people go into the voting booth this November this will clarify what Democrats like President Barack Obama stand for.

Watch: The Third Episode From ‘Awkward Black Girl’ Season Two Is Here!

Get Your Awk On

Last week, I nearly fell over when I got an invite to the premiere of this episode of The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, which you are about to enjoy to no end. And this week, when the love of my life came down with the flu, I had to work through some very real emotional devastation as I came to terms with the fact that I would not be able to attend the event (and meet the genius behind my favorite webisode, Issa Rae). But babies gotta eat, and fam comes first so I stayed home and– wouldn’t you know it– the people at the event were kind enough to send us the link to the new episode! I’m five minutes in and, naturally, LMAO. Please enjoy, and join me in the comments for a recap of your fave parts. I’m already racking up mine :)

‘The X Factor’ Releases A First Season 2 Promo Poster

Early last month we got to check out a new promo trailer for the forthcoming second season of The X Factor, later in the month we got to see a cute behind the scenes photo of new X Factor judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato playing a heated game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Today, we find ourselves just about a month away from the season premiere of The X Factor and we get to feast our eyes on a newly released promo poster. Yes, the judging gang’s all here but, IMHO, the one person who steals the show is the one person who will ensure that I tune in to watch The X Factor every single week … our dear Britney Spears.

This Writer Says Americans Have Accepted Gun Violence As A Cultural Norm

Remember the massacre in Colorado that took place just a few weeks ago? If you do, and if you’ve still been thinking about it heavily, then you may be one of few Americans who remains affected by the tragedy, especially if you still hope to accomplish some sort of change. Recently, an article was published on the Huffington Post which has since become one of the most commented-on pieces (17,099 comments and counting) I’ve ever seen on the site. Sam Stein‘s “Gun Control After Wisconsin Shooting: ‘Everyone Looks At The United States As Uncivilized’” takes a close look at the reactions from Americans (including President Obama himself) following the Colorado shooting that took place during one of the first showings of The Dark Knight Rises and the massacre at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, which received a far lesser response. Bottom line, he says, we’re already over it. Read excerpts from this very interesting portrait of American culture and society inside.

NYC > LAX

And so … I’m home again. Because my flight out of NYC was fairly early in the day for me, I had to pack up my shizz and get to JFK Airport in time for the sometimes painfully long flight home. And yes, the flight yesterday was painfully long but really not too terrible. I got home early enough to relax for a bit before David and I went out for a reunion dinner last night. It wasn’t the most exciting of nights but it was nice to be home again. More »

Watch: ‘Vogue’ Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Lady Gaga’s Cover Shoot

The Hats, The Hair...

Fresh on the heels of her not-so-subtly- leaked Vogue cover, Lady Gaga is making waves again today with this behind-the-scenes video. I warn you– if you are anti-ginormous hats, or anti-ginormous hair (or, duh, anti-Gaga), this video is going to be way too much for you. Gorgeous Marc Jacobs hats abound and Lady Gaga‘s song Hair plays in the background; I’ve never heard this track until now and I can’t imagine it playing under any other circumstances, lol. Enjoy the glitz, glamour, and over-the-top excess of the one and only Mother Monster!

Oh and that dress with the humongous safety pin? Not sure why, but I’m gonna need that stat. Thanks everyone.
