One of the stranger Grammys event took place last night during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' performance of their hit 'Same Love' as 34 couples of varied sexual persuasions got married on stage. Live on stage. By Queen Latifah and Madonna.
The 34 said their vows in the aisles of the Staples Centre in Los Angeles while Madonna (suitably dressed for the occasion in white gear and a white cowboy hat) said: "By the power vested in me by the state of California, I now pronounce you married."
Firstly, who exactly "vested" this power into Madonna? And can she arbitrarily marry couples at all of her concerts now? But how and ever...
Queen Latifah, who had a hand in this mass wedding too, spoke afterwards about what the stunt meant to her: "I took it very seriously, I didn't enter into it lightly. It's not about TV or ratings, this was something real for me."
