Anderson Cooper 360
Originally posted 01/16/2013 06:00AM
Last July when emerging R&B star Frank Ocean published an emotional letter detailing an early love affair with a man, his "coming out" story made headlines in the hip-hop world and beyond.
Now, the Grammy-nominated songwriter is being honored by GLAAD, the nation's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy and anti-defamation organization.
Ocean is among the 120 nominees for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, the organization announced early Wednesday morning. He is being recognized for his critically-lauded Channel Orange album.
Other musician nominees include Adam Lambert (for his album Tresspassing).

Clearly, it's not a party unless Anderson Cooper is there.
The usually sober-as-a-judge journalist, who broke character and had a giggling fit last summer while reporting on French actor Gérard Depardieu's going oui-oui in his seat on a Paris-to-Dublin flight, cracked up on-air again, this time while covering Dyngus Day for CNN's Anderson Cooper 360.
Dyngus Day? Well, that part is irrelevant, but it is a Polish-American tradition celebrating the end of Lent, as it occurs in Buffalo, N.Y.
The real news is Cooper's reaction. It seems to have started when the phrase "a tap from a pussy willow branch" is uttered.

"I've always giggled like a 13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet and greet. There's nothing I can do about it but I've never not been able to stop ... the first thing my building super said to me was, 'What's wrong with your laugh?' "
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper jokes about the viral response to his on-air giggle fit as he reported Gérard Depardieu's inflight incident, to Entertainment Weekly
