Bradley Stern on why that Same Love performance mattered
Reactions and comments following Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performance of “Same Love” with Mary Lambert and special appearances by Queen Latifah and Madonna at the Grammy don’t stop to spread all over the net – with one article you should not want to miss coming from Bradley Stern and his muumuse.com.
“I also saw a lot of shade being thrown on Twitter by fellow gay people yesterday. That always happens during an award show – weve got to suffer through the night somehow, after all. And had it solely been about Madonnas crypt-keeper red carpet look and that fucking grill, I would understand,” Bradley writes.
“But it wasnt about that at all – it was about gay people being used as a trendy accessory, and ageist attacks at Madonnas alleged bid for relevancy by appearing on the show.”
“And thats when I realized how urgently a history lesson is needed.” And we certainly agree.
