The Gaily News: State of the Union, Wyoming bill, Rihanna lesbian rumors, Doritos' gay Super Bowl ads, Skins loses advertisers

The Wyoming House of Representatives has passed an anti-gay marriage bill, prohibiting the state from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states.

An upcoming book by Natajah 'Tajah' Burton alludes to a lesbian relationship with pop star Rihanna, though she is never mentioned by name. This comes after rumors of Rihanna being involved with Nicki Minaj, which the pair blames on a series of misinterpreted tweets.

There has been much speculation and raised eyebrows over whether Doritos would air two gay-themed ads during the upcoming Super Bowl. Ultimately, the company decided not to run the ads, which were the result of a fan contest.

MTV’s racy new teen drama, Skins, based on the British show of the same name, has lost yet another major advertiser. On the heels of Taco Bell and GM, Subway has decided to pull its ad from the show, which features a major lesbian plotline and has been chided for its explicit content involving teenagers.

Though including the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” on a laundry list of his administration’s accomplishments, President Barack Obama failed to mention the hot button issue of gay marriage during the State of the Union address.
