And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

MTV's Skins On A Downward Spiral

As I mentioned on Facebook several months ago, you cannot re-boot a show without it's lovely, gay character.  Sure they had their lesbian version of Maxxie, but there is no comparison when it comes to the beautiful young man who was on the British version for two seasons.  Needless to say, the U.S. Version of Skins is meeting its demise rather quickly.  When the show premiered on January 19th, the show garnered 3.2 million viewers.  Last week the show couldn't pull through a million.

All the major advertisers have refused to run commercials, aside from Clearasil and movie trailers.  When have you heard anything about the show?  I happen to agree with Ben Mandleker down below, I haven't seen anyone talking about it on Facebook or Twitter.

“Quite frankly—no one I know watches ‘Skins’,” TV critic and editor of bsideblog.com, Ben Mandelker tells FOX411. “Absolutely no one is talking about ‘Skins’ on the Internet. Maybe in some forum, somewhere, but it’s not being talked about on Vulture, Gawker—I’m not seeing links on Facebook, I’m not seeing things on Twitter. I forget the show is even on. I don’t even know when it’s on, to be honest.”

Ryan and I watched 3 seasons of the British version and thoroughly enjoyed it.  As for the U.S. Version, I think they got it all wrong.  Once again... another show gone bust that I knew wouldn't make it.
