New Way of Speaking Up? Celebrities Twitter about Same Sex Marriage

So this is interesting. Of course we all know that the Mrs. California thing has been all over the news; it's also been all over twitter. Twitter (a way of sending mini-blog updates via phone), has been all over the internet for the comments made by celebrities; see link below for more details. I'm glad that stars are speaking up for same sex marriage (some of them). Some of them I'm not so surprised by (Most of Britney Spears' fan base is gay men, not to mention her dancers, choreographer, etc). As for Mylie, I was pleasantly surprised. Her demographic is pretty different than most Hollywood celebs; she's been Disney's "it girl" for the past few years and now she's becoming popular in the country music genre. So, now we have someone who's fan base is country music and young teenagers. Sounds good in my book. I know it may not seem like much, but the US is very influenced by celebrity. I mean, how long after Kanye West wore those venetian blind style sunglasses did you see them all over the streets. I always see kids with Mylie shirts or Hanna Montana(same person) backpacks. It could be good to have a teen role model making them think. Just a thought. What do others think? Is the celebrity voice getting in the way of the average person's or is it making a space?
