Anderson Cooper Kisses Madonna At The GLAAD Awards

Madonna and Anderson Cooper embraced in a a big smooch as she presented the CNN newsman and talk show host with an honor at the New York edition of the GLAAD Media Awards at the Marriott Marquis. Cooper was the recipient of this year’s Vito Russo Award, which goes to an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality.

Cooper spoke publicly about his sexuality for the first time last year with an email to journalist Andrew Sullivan. “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” he wrote.

The Material Girl, who memorably kissed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during a performance at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, also left people buzzing about her outfit. She was decked out in a full Boy Scout’s uniform — her version of it anyway, featuring special touches like fingerless gloves and a cowboy hat — to protest the organization’s ban on gay scouts and scout leaders.

“I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join,” she told the crowd. “I think that’s [messed] up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community.”

During his acceptance speech, Cooper thanked his boyfriend since 2009, Benjamin Maisani.

“[Being gay] has allowed me to love and be loved, to open my head and open my heart in ways I would have never predicted,” he noted. “The ability to love one another, the ability to love another person is in my opinion one of God’s greatest gifts and I thank God every day for the ability to give and share love with the people in my life. My family, my friends, my partner Benjamin, thank you very much.”

When I first saw these pictures last night, I cringed so hard I turned straight for a quick second before turning gay again. The sight of The Silver Fox putting his mouth on Madonna while she was dressed like a boy scout made my sexuality spin a full 360 degrees and back again.

Madonna Joins Instagram

Madonna Joins Instagram

Hold the bus: Madonna officially becomes a member of the fast growing social media Instagram. She greeted her followers with two risque photos, one features her drinking martini and the other sees her flaunting her cleavage.

“Cheers mother***ers!” so she wrote in a picture of her drowning the alcohol. Wearing blonde bang and a black lacy bra, she excitedly announced, “I’m on Instagram.” In the cleavage-baring image, she captioned, “Addicted to sweat!”

Addicted to Sweat is the name of Madge’s fitness program. “Addicted to Sweat is inspired by my workout regiment that I do consistently to take care of my mind and body,” she once said. “My trainer Nicole and I have created this program that has helped give me the body I have today.”

She’s already had more than 50,000 followers on Instagram and still counting.

Madonna Bought Her Daughter An Apartment For Her Birthday

Madonna bought her daughter Lourdes an apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for her 16th birthday. Nice. A source told the Daily Star:

“Lourdes was thrilled. She wants it done up to her taste and then it’ll be decided who shares with her and when she moves in.”

The apartment is located is a few blocks from her family home on the Upper East side of Manhattan and also near the Kabbalah Centre – which Madonna and Lourdes are regular visitors to.

Madonna paid for the property is undisclosed but it is “in a secure block with a lot of security and access to a swimming pool and gym.”

Madonna buying her daughter an apartment is just the rich person way of kicking her kid out of the house. She must have gotten sick of watching Lourdes bounce around her mansion singing Selena Gomez songs, which no doubt made her feel really fucking old – as well it should, because she is really fucking old.
