They Said What??? Kristin Chenoweth, Valerie Harper, & Carly Rae Jepsen

“RHODA” TELEVISION STAR VALERIE HARPER

(after announcing that she only has a few months to live from terminal brain cancer and her desire to live every day):  “Don’t go to the funeral before the day of the funeral.”

POP SINGER MILEY CYRUS

(denying that she and Liam Hemsworth are having troubles in a tweet):  “I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media.”

“LOST” STAR MATTHEW FOX

(about fighting with his 16-year-old daughter over the boy band, 1D):  “Every time she brought up One Direction, I felt it was my responsibility to bust their chops and she would get very upset, so we agreed not to talk about One Direction any more.”

“WICKED” AND “GLEE” STAR KRISTIN CHENOWETH

(on marriage equality):  “I just want it to hurry up and not be an issue anymore! I’m very proud of the work that has been done so far, I want us to hurry it up a bit more. I think it’s important to say this because a lot of people think if you’re religious or you have any sort of faith, you’re automatically against equality in marriage.”

MORE CHENOWETH

(who was raised southern Baptist):  “It is the antithesis of what I believe. It is the antithesis of what you should believe if you believe in Jesus. It’s not what he taught, it’s the opposite of what he taught.  If Jesus was to walk the Earth today, or Buddha or anybody, they would be horrified. Those people saying they’re doing it in the name of God? No no no no no.”

“CALL ME MAYBE” SINGER CARLY RAE JEPSEN

(Jepsen and the pop band Train were originally scheduled to perform at the BSA’s 2013 National Scout Jamboree):  “As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer. … I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level … and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”

POP BAND TRAIN

(in a statement before dropping out of the aforementioned BSA’s 2013 National Scout Jamboree): “When we booked this show for the Boy Scouts of America we were not aware of any policy barring openly gay people from participation within the organization. Train strongly opposes any kind of policy that questions the equality of any American citizen. We have always seen the BSA as a great and noble organization. We look forward to participating in the Jamboree this summer, as long as they make the right decision before then.”
