JC Penney has launched a Father's Day ad featuring a same-sex gay couple and their two children. The ad copy reads: “real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children, Claire and Mason.”

The gay marriage-friendly campaign comes on the heels of President Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage earlier this month -- a move some critics believe was politically motivated.

A week after Obama's surprise announcement, the national media went into overdrive promoting same-sex marriage in all platforms. Some media outlets announced recent polls showing support for gay marriage steadily increasingly among the black community.

But the fact remains that in the 32 states where same-sex marriage is banned by law, blacks were the major contributing factor against gay marriage.

Blacks who fear that the traditional family is under attack in America believe that children need both a mother and a father.

Despite the misleading headlines proclaiming black support for gay marriage is evolving, a St. Paul church is on the brink of closing after losing more than half of its congregation when their pastor announced his support of gay marriage.

So, the other day my west coast connect sent me the Blind Item below. I guessed correctly that the singer was Rihanna. But my informer wouldn't tell me who RiRi's new lover was.

"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.

She was right!

Which bad girl singer is planning a move to London to be closer to the new love in her life? This singer, who has well-documented problems with men in the past, has not hidden her feelings for a certain lady artist living in London. The singer is house-hunting in London for the perfect pad, close enough to her lady love. This singer is also producing a reality show in London which will feature the new love of her life.

A few weeks ago, a source reached out to Sandrarose.com with a weird scoop: she told me that Rihanna was moving to my birthplace (London) to be closer to her new love.

"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.

I lobbed a few guesses into the air but my source swatted all of my guesses down.

Never in a million years did I guess Rihanna's new lover would turn out to be British singer Rita Ora!!

My source has not confirmed this yet, but when you consider Rihanna's actions over the past few weeks, it makes total sense!

Newsweek magazine features President Barack Obama on the cover of the May 21st issue. The heading reads: 'THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT.'

Of course, the president isn't gay, but he made history on May 9 when he became the first sitting president to voice his opinion endorsing same-sex marriage.

In his cover piece, writer Andrew Sullivan makes the inevitable comparison between the civil rights struggle and gay rights.

And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. "He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family," Sullivan writes.

Gheys and lesbians are celebrating the biggest news since the passage of the gay marriage law in New York in 2011.

Hollywood's most well-known lesbian, Queen Latifah, has finally come out of the closet. The rapper-turned-actress made the transition quietly, in a press release announcing her commitment to headline this year's annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.

It is the first time that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has ever participated in a Gay Pride celebration.

Sandrarose.com was the first to break the scoop that Latifah, 42, and her longtime lover Jeanette Jenkins had split up in 2011 (thanks to my west coast connect for the tip!).

That's when Latifah began dating a choreographer, who some say helped break up her relationship with Jenkins.

Remember I told you kids that Love is expressed through actions and not words? Most women have men who forget they exist when they're not around. Or they woo their women with flowers before they tie the knot, but afterwards their wives only get flowers on Valentine's Day.

But Rihanna's boo thang, Melissa Forde, gets gifts year-round. Rihanna tweeted a pic of herself and her assistant Jennifer Rosales shopping for a gift for Melissa, whose Twitter handle is @mforde11. Melissa stays on RiRi's mind even when she's not around -- and Rihanna wants her 17 million Twitter followers to know it!

Is it just me, or does Rihanna look healthier and happier since coming out of the closet? If you're on Twitter, remember to thank @jennnrosales for keeping Rihanna safe.

Troubled singer Chris Brown tweeted images from a photo shoot Wednesday night on his Twitter account. The disturbing images show half naked women levitating in the air above hospital beds which line both sides of a street. It's ironic that Brown should use hospital beds as props since it looks like he should be lying down in one.

According to Freshlikedougie blog, Brown and Nicki Minaj are shooting a music video for "Right By My Side" this week.

Remember that 'pregnant man' who was actually born a female who gave birth to a baby, which is natural for females, but the media typically spun the story out of control because she claimed she was a man?

Well, 2 more kids later, and 'pregnant man' Thomas Beatie, 38, has split from 'his' wife Nancy, 49, according to People magazine.

People explains that the break up occurred during the taping of a reality tv show called The Doctors in which Beatty also said he had undergone a final female-to-male gender reassignment surgery.

During the episode, which airs on May 7, Beatty says her now estranged wife hasn't seen "the new me yet."

"Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated."

This sounds exactly like a BBQ Wives publicity stunt designed to get gullible viewers to tune in to their boring show.
