!! OMG, Now She Tells Us: Laura Bush in favor of gay marriage !!


I can never decide if I love or hate Laura Bush. Husbands aside, the chain-smoking, paperback-reading former drug dealer seems like more fun than Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and The Trunchbull all put together. On the other hand, can we really put husbands aside?
Well, Mrs. Bush’s new memoir is out, and what do you know: it turns out poor Laura is secretly somewhat reasonable. Not only does she think gays should be able to get married she’s also pro-choice. Thanks for telling us now, Laura!

!! OMG, V V Brown announces tour, performs in taxi cab !!


Pop star V V Brown is returning to North America toward the end of summer to tour with Maroon 5. We caught V V’s stage show last time she came ’round this way and can attest that she is a highly-energetic and focused performer.
For further evidence of her live chops, check out a recent performance from one of those web shows in which musicians perform acoustically in an unusual location, such as an elevator, a public transit bus or the bank of the River Seine. In this instance V V serenaded a New York City taxi driver for Yellow Cab Sessions (not to be confused with Black Cab Sessions) with a rendition of her song “L.O.V.E.” Check out the footage above and the tour dates after the jump. (And in case you missed it, be sure to read our V V Brown interview!)

!! OMG, First Annual OMG Award for Commenting Excellence !!

Our pal Doree Shafrir has just written a very informative piece in New York magazine analyzing the various commenting communities of this old internet. While it’s a great article, I’m a little offended that she failed to include the vibrant and incisive community of commenters here at OMG Blog in her roundup. Doree must not be that interested in neverending, pointless debates about circumcision no matter what the actual topic at hand. Her loss!
In the past 8 months or so of doing this job, though I don’t weigh in on the comments all that much, I’ve read every single one of your delightful notes and even developed certain favorite commenters. (Not to mention UNFAVORITES– but that’s another story!)
That’s why I’ve decided on this 11th day of May, 2010 (Mercury direct again, yo!) to award the first ever OMG Award for Commenting Excellence.
Who will be the historic first-everrecipient of this prestigious honor? I’ll give you a hint: it’s a longtime reader who has brought rapier wit, a keen attention to detail, and an almost psychotically singleminded devotion to celebrity peen to our thriving comment threads. Could it be you?! THE COMPLETELY IMAGINARY PRIZE GOES TO:

!! OMG, How Protective: Winston guards the bananas !!


Hey,” I bet you’re wondering. “Where is the video of that 12-year-old boy singing the song by Lady Gaga?! Shouldn’t it be on OMG Blog?
Well, yes and no! While it is to some extent in our wheelhouse, I have recently instituted a policy at this blog of sing a song besides Lady Gaga. Not that I don’t kneel at the shrine of Our Lady like everyone else, it’s just that there really are a lot of other songs to choose from, so why not sing one of those? No I’m serious! This applies especially to Bad Romance, which was never even my favorite to start with.
At the same time, I realize that it is my duty to bring you the video of the 12-year-old boy singing the song by Lady Gaga in his school talent show. So I will do so. I’m just not putting it after the front page. A girl has to have his standards, and therefore it’s after the jump. Above, I instead bring you a video of a famous blogger’s cat sleeping in a fruit bowl and guarding a bunch of bananas. (Which reminds me, Frank– we haven’t seen Andy in awhile, now have we?!)
Winston via FourFour, read on for boy doing Gaga…
