Miley Cyrus Is Serious About Marriage Equality

Pop starlet Miley Cyrus expressed genuine support for marriage equality this week, calling out a homophobic fan over Twitter. "Love that everybody is hating on Urban Outfitters," Cyrus tweeted, to over one million followers. "Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality. #SHADYASHELL "IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH" - Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign." Some Cyrus follower -- "Tammyn4As," a self-described "Christian and wife to the greatest guy ever" -- tweeted at Miley, "what happened to that Christian girl from Tn with decent moral values and a lot of heart?" Cyrus shot back, "She's gone," like Natalie Portman in Black Swan. No, she didn't do that. She said something smart and sassy: "what an ignorant statement. i dont have "alot of heart" cuz im not gonna be a closed minded hypocrite? LOVE IS LOVE. GOD IS LOVE." It seems like Miley may have actually turned this tart around: Today, Tammyn4As tweeted, "and yes, I do think there will be people who were gay in Heaven." Progress, people. [MileyCyrus/Twitter]
