"perhaps we should be celebrating that a word which was once used to label people negatively is now also being used to describe things in a positive way."

...but in the instances which you describe, it is being used ironically, so it's original, intended meaning is still intact, much like the word "sick" was used a few years back, when it was trendy to call something "sick" when it was desirable or very cool.
