(Newser) – Actress and former Cosby star Raven-Symone has made a point to keep her private life private, but the Huffington Post reports that she changed all that yesterday with this tweet: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." A rep explains that she had just heard a radio report about how more states had legalized gay marriage, reports E! Online. (That would be Minnesota and Rhode Island.) The 27-year-old doesn't have any immediate plans to marry, "but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to," she said in a followup statement. A Jezebel blogger loves it.
