You can't believe it, because they don't believe it themselves. They are just angry. Lady Gaga is getting her vanguard award and there is literally nothing that could prevent her from getting it, unless she dies, but they'll probably still award her post death anyway.
This was always such a non-issue. Matt's been gay ever since he was on Guiding Light. I see people being like "FINALLY" and "It's about time" on Twitter and other sites. Congrats to him though for talking about something that's never been a secret.
