Today, the United States Supreme Court handed down a historic 5-4 ruling in the fight for marriage equality. With this decision, the union between same-sex couples will be recognized in all 50 states. Guess we can call “gay marriage” plain old “marriage” now. This is the new normal.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy penned the majority opinion, explaining why the SCOTUS ultimately came to the decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” he wrote.  “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

It is truly a big day for all Americans and people around the world are celebrating this major day in our history. Below, celebrities react to the historic ruling.

Looks like Jay Z and Beyoncé have to watch the throne now that it’s been taken over by a hot new celebrity couple. Forbes has released its list of top-earning celebrity couples and after topping the list in 2013, they have been usurped by none other than Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. Together, the newly-minted couple pulled in $146 million, which is quite a bit more than Jay and Bey’s $110.5 million. 

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton round out the top three with $57 million. While Swift and Harris’ combined wealth is quite impressive, keep in mind that they are just dating for now, compared to Bey Z and Shelbert, who are married. We wish Swift and Harris the best of luck in their relationships, but if their fling doesn’t last, you can count on not seeing these two on the list next year. But who knows? The couple that makes the Forbes list together might be the one that stays together.

#PowerofMakeup Selfies Fight Makeup Shamers

Women all over the world are diving into their cosmetic bags and slathering on makeup to let the world know: loving makeup does not mean you’re antifeminist.

Now, other women across the web are picking up where NikkieTutorials left off, showing off their half made-up faces to fight makeup shamers.

Watch: Demi Lovato Gives a Hilariously Terrible Impersonation of BFF Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea may have faced a few career setbacks in recent months, but at least she can rest assured that her BFF Demi Lovato isn’t going to be coming for her signature rapping style anytime soon.

In a new video promoting her latest single, “Cool For the Summer”, Demi caught up with iHeartRadio, answering questions picked out of a sombrero and delivering a not-so-convincing impression of our very own Iggy-Iggs. If we’re honest, she sounded kind of British rather than Aussie with an American twang.

The friendship between the Aussie rapper and the former Disney darling has been growing steadily over the past two years. As you might recall they both attended that Halloween party where Iggy dressed up as a character from White Chicks and Demi as Lucille Ball (not to mention a bonus J-Lo).  (more…)

Australia’s Next Top Model contestant Alex Sinadinovic ate the Big Apple right up, but it wasn’t enough to get her through to the final two of the competition. So what went wrong?

Let’s talk about her photo shoot, the one Coco Rocha trained her for. Out of all the outlandish poses she was pulling out of the bag, despite wearing a ridic Harajuku-slash-astronaut costume, they chose a photo of her frumpish lean over a fire hydrant. (more…)

Drag Superstar Courtney Act Teases Release of Her New EP, ‘Kaleidoscope’

Australian-made drag superstar Courtney Act is back with new music and we couldn’t be more excited to get our groove on. Courtney, real name Shane Jenek, may have come to national attention on Australian Idol back in 2003, but, since placing in the top three of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6, she has gone international in a big way. 

Somewhere between touring, walking in LA Fashion Week, hanging with celeb friends like Adam Lambert and Nicole Richie, and even appearing as an American Apparel ad girl, she managed to find time to record her new EP, “Kaleidoscope”. 

Courtney teases her new release as, “a little bit Kylie, a bit Tove Lo, a bit Robyn, and a good dollop of Vegemite. I recommend listening to it while jumping on your bed in your pajamas. Also worth noting, with the help of Kickstarter and her fans, she managed to raise over $37,000 to get the album produced and recorded.  (more…)
