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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Is Megan from Mad Men Doomed? [spoiler alert]

If you're a fan of Mad Men, you'll definitely want to read the following conspiracy theories on Megan Draper's outfit last Sunday night.  And they're just that - theories.  Of course, the coincidences are right here, and there's no denying this could mean something big, especially since the series ends next year.  Also, don't forget Stonewall happened in 1969...  definitely something to make you go "hmmm...  "

Thank you, James St. James over at WOW for sharing this amazing piece.  I couldn't have said it better myself. 

Sharon Tate Mad Men Jessica Paré Janie Bryant conspiracy theories On Sunday night’s episode of Mad MenMegan Draper wore what seemed like a weirdly anachronistic T-shirt with a red star on it. Not her usual style, and more ’80s than ’60s. But apparently the red star T-shirt was identical to one that Sharon Tate wore in an infamous 1967 Esquire photograph taken by William Helburn (pictured left). Helburn’s daughter tweeted Mad Men’s head costume designer, Janie Bryant, asking, “Dying to know if this pic of Sharon Tate inspired Megan’s look? My dad shot it for @esquiremag in ‘67. ” Bryant confirmed: “No coincidence! So nice to tweet meet you.” Since the exchange, an entire Reddit thread has formed, speculating about the symbolism of the shirt and any foreshadowing it could have for Jessica Paré’s character. According to Vanity Fair: “Like fictional Megan, Sharon Tate was an up-and-coming television actress in the 1960s. While married to Roman Polanski and eight-and-a-half-months pregnant with his child, Tate was murdered in her home by Charles Manson followers. Earlier this season, Megan admitted that she had suffered a miscarriage. While wearing the T-shirt in last Sunday’s episode, Megan is standing on the balcony outside her and Don’s Manhattan apartment while ambulance sirens ring out below — a nod to the city’s increased crime rates, which are acknowledged many times throughout the episode.” All of which could spell DOOM for poor Megan. Jezebel‘s Tracy Egan Morrissey has another theory, though: “While costume design on Mad Men has been as deliberate and layered as the writing on the show, the red star could also be a red herring. After all, Tate wasn’t murdered until 1969, but something else happened to her 1968 — she got pregnant just as her acting career was taking off.
