EVERYTHING IS SUPER WHEN YOU'RE...: At Sunday's Tony Awards, winning "Hairspray" composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman shocked the crowd by kissing each other full on the lips after winning the award for Best Musical. The two men are not only longtime songwriting partners, but have in fact been a couple for 25 years.
While it's hard to think of many forums other than the Tony Awards where a gay male kiss would be less controversial, the kiss has nonetheless made waves all across the world. Good for them, I say; Marc Shaiman wrote all of the brilliant, should've-been-Oscar-winning songs for the "South Park" movie; he can do whatever he wants for all I care.
