The U.S. Supreme Court issued two landmark rulings related to the issue of same-sex marriage Wednesday. First, the court ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional — paving the way for legally married same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as straight married couples. Second, the Court dismissed an appeal against California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state — meaning that same-sex marriage can resume in California.
Celebrities took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the rulings. Here are some of their reactions:
Ricky Martin has signed a deal to develop and star in a network television series, NBC's Universal Television announced Monday.
"Ricky is an iconic superstar who is as talented as he is popular," Bela Bajaria, executive vice president of Universal Television said in a statement. "Whether he's performing before sold-out concert crowds, or starring on Broadway, where he is currently playing to SRO in Evita, Ricky connects with his audience in a very palpable way — and we are thrilled that he will be adding TV star to his incredible resume."
Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, Britney Spears and Ricky Martin — Glee has never had a problem luring A-list talent to the halls of McKinley High for guest-starring roles. And the roles of the glee clubbers' parents have been no exception. In its first three seasons, the Fox musical has nabbed comedy pioneers (Carol Burnett), Broadway vets (Victor Garber, Idina Menzel), sci-fi stars (Jeff Goldblum) and even produced an Emmy nominee (Mike O'Malley). Now that there are a new group of seniors set to rule the school — or at least the choir room — this season on Glee, could meeting Blaine's dad and Artie's mom be far behind? The cast shared their top choices to play their TV parents...
The Glee waiting game is over. At least a little. When announcing Fox's 2012-2013 TV schedule, entertainment president Kevin Reilly finally gave Gleeks a glimmer of what Season 4 will look like following the New Direction seniors' graduation. Instead of selfishly making Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) hang around McKinley next year like Lima losers, the show will follow the duo to a performing arts school in New York — where they'll run into the likes of Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker — while also still keeping up with New Directions. But will the show be able to pull it off? We look at why this approach may or may not succeed...

13. Lamest Dirty Talk: It took time, but The Bachelor's Jamie finally decides she's going to kiss Ben. Despite being a self-proclaimed prude, Jamie straddles Ben and tells him exactly how she is going to plant one on him. But she doesn't stop there. She keeps flapping her gums, even while the two are kissing, which just makes Ben laugh. If first kisses say it all, then it seems clear why Jamie didn't get a rose.
