Ireland may have said yes to gay marriage but they are still a little behind when it comes to accepting homosexuality among animals.

A "gay" bull who goes by the name Benjy recently made headlines in Ireland when his owner complained that he was not fulfilling his duties at home in County Mayo since he showed little interest in the opposite sex.

The BBC reported:

His (Benjy's) story was picked up by an animal rights group and an online gay daily magazine. A campaign to buy him and give him a new home at the Hillside Sanctuary in Frettenham, Norfolk, followed.

In under a week the campaign raised over £9,000, including a £5,000 donation from Sam Simon, co-creator of the TV cult cartoon The Simpsons.

But now that he has settled in his new home in Hillside Animal Sanctuary, in Norfolk, it seems that Benjy isn't gay after all. He just doesn't like Irish cows very much and prefers the English.

Wendy Valentine the founder of the sanctuary said: "Judging by what he was trying to do the other day with one of the cows... he isn't gay."

"He's a large, gentle animal, he's lovely and he's a very handsome boy, but a big gentle softie," she added.

Turns out German Ambassador to India Michael Steiner is quite the Bolly buff.

In a tribute to the Hindi Film Industry the ambassador has made his acting debut in a remake of a music video from the Shah Rukh Khan-Preity Zinta-Saif Ali Khan starrer Kal Ho Na Ho

Steiner loved the title song of the Karan Johar-directed movie which was penned by Javed Akhtar and sung by Sonu Nigam and which talks about seizing the day.

Ya Rabb actor, Arjumman Mughal, seems rather upset with veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani and late Kishore Kumar's wife Leena Chandavarkar's much talked about liplock at the Hum Log awards this week. Here is why.

According the Mughal, the 'controversial' lip lock diverted attention from the awards.

A release from a publicist says:

And just as we wonder whether the actress is serious or joking, she almost justifies the kiss. "It was cute and just a way of greeting each other. Maybe, he wanted to kiss her cheek, and missed," winks Arjumman.
 
The actress feels that Twitterati is jumping all over the so-called 'liplock' giving it more attention than it deserves. But she also defends it saying, "Where is it written that male testosterone is the prerogative of hot and happening Bollywood stars." True that!

Looks like Ram Jethamalni's obsessive celeb kissing is causing much stir. Perhaps even jealousy?

Why, once upon a time, he also kissed Dharmendra:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi might be known for his rhetoric but like all other world leaders he too uses a teleprompter.

Unfortunately for Mr. Modi, this morning, his teleprompter let him down.
