Minnesota State Senators warmed our hearts today by passing a measure allowing same-sex couples to marry!
The Land of 10,000 Lakes lawmakers voted 37 to 30 in favor, and the Governor is expected to sign it into law tomorrow!! Better late than never!!
State Senator John Marty, a democrat, was pleased as punch by the result.
“These families deserve the same rights and recognitions that we do. It’s finally happening."
We agree 100% and we couldn't be more thrilled!!
Minnesota, the birth place of Prince, becomes the 12th state in the Union to take this grand step toward LGBT equality!
Now everyone can purify themselves in the waters of Lake Minnetonka regardless of sexual orientation, LOLz!!
Twelve states down, 38 to go!!

Wow, wow, wow.
Before The Bangles recorded Manic Monday, turning it into a big '80s hit, Prince, who had written the song, actually recorded it himself along with the girl group Apollonia 6.
He eventually, handed it off to Susanna Hoffs and the rest of the girls because he wasn't sure if Apollonia 6's vocals could pull it off, but before he did that, he left a bit of a gem behind.
In this recently discovered demo (above), he collaborated with the girl group on the demo, sounding as flawless as ever.
The audio (above) is not the best quality, but you still get a taste of that Prince flavor. And it's oh so yummy. PRESS PLAY (above)!!!
These award are definitely going to be FUN.
The Billboard Music Awards aren't until May 19, but it feels like fun. is already a winner as they lead the pack of the world's most successful musicians with 13 nominations.
This is going to be one STEEP competition and it'll be an entertaining too!
Who else will battle it out for top honors??!
Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
There. Are. No. Words.
Literally! Prince's riveting new remix is 80% instrumental!!
Don't worry, though — the purple guitar god still shreds like a TMNT villain!
Ch-ch-check out his radically wild and thoroughly enjoyable rendition of Let's Go Crazy (above)!
We can't exactly call it an improvement on the 1984 original, but it still feels fabulously fresh!!
We'd love for Prince & his brand new backing group, 3rd Eye Girl, to re-release every Purple Rain track this fashion!!
In the meanwhile, we're gonna purify ourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka with Appollonia, LOLz!!
It looks like the Artist Formerly Known as Prince might have to change his title to the Witness Formerly Known as Prince!
Word on the street is the Purple Rain singer could be called to court to testify in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.
To refresh your memories, the Jackson family is suing the insurance company for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted with involuntary manslaughter after giving the King of Pop a lethal dosage of medication.
A source says
Let's be honest, no one outside the Grammy committee actually knows the difference between Record of the Year & Song of the Year!
But who gives a flying fudge!?
Gotye just took the stage AGAIN and Prince handed him the cute little phonograph!!
Somebody That I Used to Know was stuck in our head for eight solid months so CLEARLY it is a well deserved honor!!
Their victory wasn't a cake walk, either!!
Congratz, Gotye! Good luck writing an even more popular song to defend your title next year!
UPDATE: Gotye won ANOTHER Grammy tonight for the year's Best Alternative Album, Making Mirrors!
You go, boy!!
