Musicians React to U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Gay Marriage

Musicians React to U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Gay Marriage
In a historic ruling this morning (June 26), the United States Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is protected under the Constitution — essentially legalizing gay marriage legal across all 50 states.
 
Politicians like President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton weren't the only public figures who took to social media to celebrate the decision. Musicians from across all genres and geographic locations showed their support for the monumental moment in the history of LGBT rights.
 
Everyone from Lil B to Tyler, the Creator to John Legend took to Twitter to offer their support.
 
 Iconic pop stars and vocal allies of the gay rights movement like Miley Cyrus and Madonna took to Instagram to show their approval.
 

 
It wasn't just Americans either, celebrities from around the world chimed in, with UK crooner Sam Smith and fellow Brit Charli XCX celebrating via Instagram and Twitter, respetively.

And, of course, Canadian musicians and gay icons like Tegan and Sara and k.d. Lang joined in the festivities, as did Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew (albeit with a quieter, simpler expression of enthusiasm).

The ruling came down as many cities across North America and the world are celebrating LGBT communities with parades, parties and other Pride Week events.
