Katy Perry, John Mayer call it quits

It’s been a rocky few years for Katy Perry. After her 2012 divorce with Russell Brand, she’s been linked to John Mayer since summer 2012. Perry broke it off this time though. (Go Katy). Since Mayer’s infamous and incredibly sexist Playboy interview in 2010, I haven’t been able to stand the sight of him. Proud of you, Katy.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoes “religious freedom” bill

A Republican-led bill in the state of Arizona would allow businesses to refuse service to the LGBT community due to religious beliefs. The bill supposedly promotes “religious freedom” but is instead a blatant form of discrimination. On Monday, Brewer said, “I can assure you, as always, I will do the right thing for the state of Arizona.” Wednesday, she vetoed the bill. Thankfully the “right thing” doesn’t allow rampant homophobia.

Robin Thicke and wife split

Robin Thicke and his wife, Paula Patton, “mutually” ended their relationship. They married in 2005 but had been dating since they were teenagers. They have one son who turns four in April. Looks like Paula got sick of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Maybe he’s been twerking on one too many Mileys or he’s pissed off one too many feminists.
