Lesbians will get their fair share of representation at this year’s Grammy’s, with three of the most powerful lesbians in the nation nominated for the same award: the Grammy’s Best Spoken Word Album.
MSNBC political pundit Rachel Maddow, daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and singer Janis Ian are all nominated in the same category. This doesn’t mean the award is secured to go to a member of the LGBT community as they are facing some tough competition, with former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama also landing the nominations.
Ellen is nominated for “Seriously … I’m Kidding;”Janis for her book “Society’s Child: My Autobiography;” and Rachel is up for “Drift: The Unmooring of American Political Power,” according to SheWired.
Others representing lesbians at this year’s awards include indie rock chicks Tegan and Sara, Australian singer Sia, and comedian Margaret Cho.
The Grammy Award will be held on Feb.10, 2013, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
