I thought the lesbian deal had been signed, sealed and tossed in the back of a drawer. Guess somebody went and dragged it out so the cat could play with it!
When did she switch?
National Organization for Women awarded Ani DiFranco the prestigious Woman of Courage award Friday during their 40th annual convention.
Latifa Lyles, NOW's vice president of membership, presented the award and called Difranco an inspiration, not only for her music but for her independent ideals.
DiFranco founded her own record label, Righteous Babe, in 1990 after becoming frustrated with other music labels. Past recipients of the annual award include Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and playwright Eve Ensler. Difranco, a Buffalo native, is the first musician to receive the honor.
While accepting the award, DiFranco announced she, along with her partner/producer Mike Napolitano, is pregnant with her first child, due sometime in February.
