Out and About

Since it's inception, there has been an exodus of some of our Queens Girls here. As much as I miss my girls, it has been exciting to see a whole new crop of sweet, young, impressionables move into our area and enrich us by living their lives. Hmmm....perhaps a Tales from the Crib, The Second?

Anyway, one such girl I've got my eye on, and though she is not a contributor here, she is making quite a contribution elsewhere. I am so proud of my friend for being out about her mormonism at such an establishment as Vanity Fair.

  • Nice article. Terrible venue. Vanity Fair? Please. The picture of Madonna naked in the sidebar tells it all.

  • First of all, I love Vanity Fair, and second, I loved the article.

    Thanks for the heads-up Kage!

    (Third, I love Madonna.)

  • I don't think that any venue is a bad venue for clearing up misconceptions about mormonism. If all we can get is interviews in the Deseret News, what good is that going to do?

    I had to laugh about the question about getting married at Disneyworld because my dad had a wedding picture of dh and I in front of the San Diego temple on his desk at work and a co-worker seriously asked him how much it cost him to have my wedding at Disneyland.

  • I admit, I didn't love seeing Madonna and the other naked movie star right there, but the photo of the temple with a girl and binoculars kind of off-set it....plus being a mormon walking around NYC is pretty much the same as this article landing on vanity fair . com

    in the world, not of it...right?

  • Anon, I love the article, the magazine, Madonna- love it all. Vanity Fair is my favorite publication, hands down.

  • Totally saw Madonna and the irony was not lost on me. However, I thought the article was very, very good. She was funny when she should have been funny, and wise in her internet links. I think people take it too seriously sometimes, and so her take was very refreshing. Very impressed!

  • Kudos! That was great.

    I kind of think that people being upset by a picture of Madonna on the same page as the article supports some of people's misconceptions about our religion. It's not like it was a picture of the interviewee scantily clad as she talked about her faith. I thought it was fantastic!
