It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Olbermann Returning as Quickly as He Left MSNBC

Slowly, but surely all news organizations will be abuzz about the return of Keith Olbermann to the political pundit scene.  In late breaking news Monday night, The New York Times is reporting that Olbermann will announce tomorrow that he will be joining Al Gore and company at Current TV

According to the Times, the domain name of TheOlbermannShow.com was registered two days before his on-air announcement that he was leaving MSNBC.

This could be more like the deal Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications struck for her new cable network, OWN.  How the show will premiere or air is unknown at this time, but I'm sure we will hear all about it tomorrow, and I will keep all you posted.

"All I Want Is To Look Good For This Girl"

What is this world coming to?  Soon, you will be hearing that the Bieb got his 42 year old manager pregnant, sound familiar?  We all know about Kick-Ass star Peter Johnson and his 43 yr old wife.
“Justin was talking to the stylist, asking her to take sexy pictures of him for his girlfriend. He was just being cute about it, joking around, but he definitely wanted to look good for this girl. He never said the name Selena, but we knew who it was.”

All this, according to the La Rag Mag.

You're Amazing Just The Way You Are and The Two Schools Who Told You So

So what do you do when you want to get a message across?

Take your jacket off in the middle of shopping mall, take everyone by surprise and perform a dance routine.

To throw their support against anti-bullying, that's exactly what 2 schools in Canada did.  They all sported pink t-shirts with the word, 'Acceptance' in large, bold letters with some script underneath it saying, "You're Amazing Just The Way You Are."  In reference to the Bruno Mars song, "Just The Way You Are," playing in the background.

Good job kiddos, I loved it.

Keeping It Old Skool - Issue No. 2 - Turnin' Turbo Dashboard

Ahhh, it's time to reflect back on those good 'ol days of our childhood or teenage years and continue with my second issue of "Keeping it Old Skool."

I never owned one of these personally, but I remember playing with one at my friend's or cousin's homes, wishing I did.  I loved this toy; where else could I pretend I was driving, aside from making a car out of a cardboard box? 

The Turnin' Turbo Dashboard was every kids' dream.  It gave us an endless amount of time and it was so much fun, at least until Nintendo and Playstation came around. Of course, since there was only one in the house, we all had to share it, and that wasn't the fun part.

The toy was made and sold in 1983 by a Japanese company called Takara Tomy.  And we all know how much we love imported merchandise.

Fashion Icon, Georgio Armani is Gaga for Gaga: Always has been.

I wanted to share this article by Robin Givhan for the fans of Gaga.

'Armani, the unlikeliest designer to be jolted by Gaga juice, discovered her in the most mundane way: He saw her perform at the American Music Awards a little more than a year ago. “I was struck by her extraordinary talent for writing music and her mastery of her own voice,” the designer says. And he was enamored by how she’d “deliberately created a totally outlandish personality.”

Most celebrities come to Armani seeking salvation from their tasteless ways. But Gaga did not genuflect. She inspired the designer to craft a brilliant silver minidress with a lightning-bolt head ornament. He made a black leather bodysuit for her “Alejandro” video. He stocked a wardrobe trunk for her current tour. She even induced him to create a green spangled leotard with shoulders like Mickey Mouse ears. Armani was clearly intoxicated by Gaga. And that last look was the fashion equivalent of drunk dialing.

“No other artist would give me the opportunity to devise such original and way-out creations,” Armani explains. “Lady Gaga’s costumes are a pure creativity exercise that allows me to design spectacular, almost surreal pieces.”'

The Best Superbowl Ad of the Night

In my opinion, I think Chrysler did a phenomenal job with their 2 minute spot during the Superbowl last night.

There was a story behind the ad, indicating Detroit was once a place of the hard-working American man, and still is today.  It focused on several areas of Detroit that have touched peoples lives, places where the people of Detroit can call iconic.  And it was like a movie trailer, in the sense that it delivered it's main plot in the end.  Leaving you breathless and exhilarated; knowing that you live in a country so great as ours that can give you something nobody else can... hope.

Imported from Detroit: The Trailer

OMG Hilarious!

Today's daily laugh continues with another Cyanide and Happiness comic.  I believe this one's titled, "Mermaid."

No NFL Football This Fall... Wait Until 2012

Yes, you heard me.  Well... you read it; There may be no football until the 2012 season.  And its not because of the economy or the league going bankrupt; quite the opposite.  While people are barely making ends meet, the owners of each team want to get richer, and the players want to join them.  I was reading an article in the Huffington Post about a collective bargaining agreement that expires on March 3, and if there isn't a new one drawn up before then, the owners are considering locking out the players.  Which means... no games this fall season.  This hasn't happened since 1987.  Read more about it here.

Quite honestly, these people should be ashamed of themselves; owners and players both.  The players already make millions and the owners are already gazillionaires.  It's unfortunate that neither one can come up with a solution.  Make it to where there's a permanent salary cap, and re-evaluate after 50 years, LOL.  At least I'll be gone by then.

Superbowl Spending

Thanks to one of my favorite sites, I Love Charts, I thought I'd share this chart showing which city wins for spending the most during a Superbowl.

Movies to Watch: "Lord Have Mercy," Captain America

Yesterday I informed you of an upcoming trailer that would be airing during the Superbowl.  So, was it the hottest trailer of the night?  Do you really have to ask?  It was Captain America, and all of Chris Evan's hotness that outshined every other movie trailer.  Not even Thor could top this baby.

Last night, while watching the game with Ryan's family the trailer to Captain America comes on.  The scene where the supposedly, scrawny Chris Evans is transformed into the muscle god he actually is, takes me by surprise. It wasn't the game ending loss the Packers dealt the Steelers, it wasn't the crazy commercials that aired during the game.  No.  It was the mere sound of me screaming, these three words, "Lord have Mercy!"  A magical moment indeed. LOL

Check out the trailer below:
