Why of course you know who Lily Allen is, she’s a indie-pop-rock phenomenon with no.1 singles on the UK and Australian charts, and top 10 hits in the United States. She is known for her internet presence, irreverent sense of humor and third nipple. She also recently tweeted about Mormons.
Lily, whose profile reads “im a hustler baby, i just want you to know,” commented last night, “I’ve just been on wikipedia and still can’t figure it out. What is a mormon ?” Hilarity ensued as Twitterers around the globe dutifully responded with their most helpful definitions of mormonism, in 140 characters or less. It has been interesting to observe the responses, some painfully earnest and some just painful. Here are a few of my favorites. If you have never been on Twitter, these will probably strike you as borderline illiterate. It may also be a revelation to you as to how Mormons are perceived on the outside by the Twitter demographic. With answers like these I think we can rest assured that Sister Allen will be joining Gladys Knight onstage any day now.
