Madonna & Lady Gaga Cheer Supreme Court's Rulings: "Justice Is Served"

It's no surprise that Madonna applauds the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Wednesday that paves the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.

Madonna, who is a longtime gay rights advocate, writes on Facebook , "What a way to start my day!! I'm wearing a smile from ear to ear. There is a G-D! Justice is served. Hallelujah!!"

In late March, Madonna posted messages on her website and Facebook page calling for a "revolution" promoting marriage equality. That same month at the GLAAD Media Awards, where she presented an award to Anderson Cooper , she was dressed as a Boy Scout as she denounced the Scouts' anti-gay policy. The Boy Scouts last month voted to end its ban on admitting gay members, though it won't permit gay leaders.

Meanwhile, Madonna's sometime rival, Lady Gaga , also a staunch gay rights supporter, broke her recent Twitter silence to cheer the fact that the high court also struck down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act that denied federal benefits to same-sex couples.

"We stand tall today. #DomaStruckDown," she tweeted . " So many fought for so long. Be proud, the prejudice are now the minority."  When a fan responded, "THE WORLD IS ACTUALLY CHANGING," she replied, "isn't it amazing to witness?"
