Queen Latifah married 33 couples on stage during the "Same Love" Grammy performance. The marriages were reportedly between people who are gay, straight, young, old and from different ethnicities and nationalities.

Prior to the performance, Ryan Lewis said that the weddings, “Will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality, that all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.” 

Among those who were to be married was Lewis' sister, Laura, to her then-boyfriend. “A night that is already tremendous for me, for the music,” Ryan Lewis said, “but to have my sister get married and my family there watching it—that makes it a whole other level of amazing.”

The week before the Grammy broadcast, “Same Love” sold 11,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan data. The week ending January 26, “Same Love” sold 24,000 copies.

    What I find interesting about this whole Macklemore situation is how white hiphop fans who hated Macklemore, suddenly love him because he won a grammy over the black artists and black people are complaining about it. The same whites who were dick riding Kendrick Lamar and saying things like, "fuck Macklemore, he's pop trash" are now saying "Mack is not that bad, GKMC is overrated, he deserved to win." I don't remember ever seeing a white macklemore fan on this site or in the hiphop community before he won. Now they're suddenly on his dick because black people are not happy. It's stuff like this that makes me not want to support white people in hiphop. I'm not impressed
