Afternoon Delight: Shay Mitchell’s “Fashionable World,” Michelle Shocked responds to reports of an anti-gay rant

 
 

Good afternoon and happy hump day!

Happy birthday to Holly Hunter

Remember when Hunter made out with Clea DuVall on Saving Grace? Good times.

Singer Michelle Shocked has released an open letter in response to reports that she went on an anti-gay tirade at a recent concert (resulting in a slew of upcoming shows being cancelled). In it, she writes:

I stand accused of forsaking the LGBT community for a Christianity which is – hear me now – anathema to my understanding of faith. I will no doubt take future flack for saying so. I’m accused of believing that “God hates fags” and that the repeal of Prop 8 will usher in the End Times. Well, if I caused such an absurdity, I am damn sorry. To be clear: I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of any so-called faith preaching intolerance of anyone. Again, anyone: straight or gay, believers or not: that’s the law.

If you missed Tegan and Sara at SXSW, you can watch their entire set in the video below, along with a really weird intro to the performance and an interview with them after. (If that monster is a dude, I think he is still out of luck.)
