Several pop artists are reacting positively to the news Wednesday that the Supreme Court struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and declared that gay and lesbian couples who are legally married get benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples. The 5-4 SCOTUS ruling said DOMA was unconstitutional. Among the reactions on Twitter:

People following the hunt and eventual arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the Boston, MA area have noticed that the terrorist from Chechnya who planted a pressure cooker bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon bares some resemblance to Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Dozens of Tweets compared the bomb wielding killer to the pop singer, which was a common theme during a prior manhunt on the other side of the United States in February, when Tweets were sent to LL Cool J warning the Los Angeles based rapper to stay inside due to his uncanny resemblance to Chris Dorner. Among the Tweets observing the celebrity look-alike circumstance:

Brian McFadden spoke with the Daily Telegraph about his ex-girlfriend stepping out on a date recently with Nick Jonas, and how he’s handling the situation. “If she’s happy I’m happy. I’m a straight shooter. If I didn’t like it I would have said something or cracked it on Twitter. I didn’t mind,” the former Westlife member said. “She told me about it beforehand, whatever makes her happy. But there’s a warning from me, if anyone hurts her they’re dead.”
Delta Goodrem is on the rebound after splitting up with longtime boyfriend Brian McFadden, and now the Australian pop star is catching heat from fans of Nick Jonas, the new younger man in her life. A source tells E! News the couple have been dating since March. Many are sending the 26-year-old messages on Twitter referencing the age gap, since the Jonas Brothers star is 18. As has been the case with a string of other women dating male teen idols, the nasty Tweets sent by the jealous girls include death threats to the cancer survivor. Among them:
