They Said What??? President Jimmy Carter, Stevie Wonder, & Miley Cyrus

FOX COMMENTATOR BILL O’REILLY

“I would like the states to decide what kind of society they want.  I don’t buy into the fact that homosexuals have a constitutional right to marry; I don’t believe that, because If that were true, then pluralists would, then Mormons could have more than one [spouse].”

FORMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER

“At a time when popular revolutions are sweeping the globe, the United States should be strengthening, not weakening, basic rules of law and principles of justice enumerated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  But instead of making the world safer, America’s violation of international human rights abets our enemies and alienates our friends.”

MORE CARTER

(on NSA information leaker Edward Snowden):  “He’s obviously violated the laws of America, for which he’s responsible, but I think the invasion of human rights and American privacy has gone too far.  I think that the secrecy that has been surrounding this invasion of privacy has been excessive, so I think that the bringing of it to the public notice has probably been, in the long term, beneficial. I think the American people deserve to know what their Congress is doing.”

SINGER MILEY CYRUS

“Everybody said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.  I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”

ACTRESS KIRSTIE ALLEY

(in a tweet slamming Scientology expert and former “Village Voice” editor Tony Ortega for claiming she was upset with actress Leah Remini for leaving Scientology):  “lying news outlets. I do NOT care what religion ANYONE is or isn’t. I respect religions & would fight for your freedom as well as mine.”

“THE WIRE” CREATOR DAVID SIMON

(responding about the George Zimmerman verdict):  “If I were a person of color in Florida, I would pick up a brick and start walking toward that courthouse in Sanford. Those that do not, those that hold the pain and betrayal inside and somehow manage to resist violence — these citizens are testament to a stoic tolerance that is more than the rest of us deserve. I confess, their patience and patriotism is well beyond my own.”

MORE SIMON

“I can’t look an African-American parent in the eye for thinking about what they must tell their sons about what can happen to them on the streets of their country. Tonight, anyone who truly understands what justice is and what it requires of a society is ashamed to call himself an American.”

MUSIC ICON STEVIE WONDER

(responding to the George Zimmerman acquittal):  “I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,”. “As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.”

MORE WONDER

“The truth is that—for those of you who’ve lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world—we can’t bring them back.  What we can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That’s what I know we can do.”

They Said What??? Kelly Osborne, Katie Couric, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, Adele, & Kirstie Alley “Weigh” In

KELLY OSBORNE
(about Lady Gaga):  “I think she’s pregnant because she’s been covering up this part of her body recently and I have been noticing that a lot.  And her style has changed. You can’t bleach your hair when you are pregnant.”
LADY GAGA
(responding to pregnancy rumors):  “I love eating pasta and pizza.  I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing. It’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in. So my dad wants me to eat there and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”
ACTRESS KIRSTIE ALLEY
(on Lady Gaga’s weight gain):  “I say more power to her.  She is such a role model for millions of girls in the world and she should be whatever weight she wants to be and nobody should have to starve themselves.”
TALK SHOW HOST KATIE COURIC
“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that.  And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing.”
SINGER & “THE X-FACTOR CO-HOST” DEMI LOVATO
(talking her battles with bulimia): “When I was younger, stick-figure thin was in and nobody was talking about eating disorders.  I want girls to know that it’s OK when they grow up and their body changes. I want them to be aware that certain things they might do to lose weight can be dangerous—life-threatening, even.”
ADELE
(speaking about Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna):  “They don’t look how they do in magazines or videos. I have seen them up close.  Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. I don’t find it encouraging.  I have never seen magazine covers and music videos and thought, ‘I need to look like that to be a success.’  To sell more records I don’t need to go that. I just stand there and sing. I’m not worried that I’m a ‘plus size’ and so much bigger than other artists. No matter what you look like the key is to be happy with yourself.”
