In the wake of the Miss USA controversy, young Hollywood appears to be coming out in support of marriage equality. Days after Miss California said she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman, the social networking site Twitter was ablaze with marriage equality Tweets from the likes of Britney and Miley.

"Love is love!" Britney Tweeted to Perez. "People should be able to do whatever makes them happy!"

Heidi Montag

Miley Cyrus Tweeted similar thoughts, telling Hilton, "Jesus loves you and your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! That's like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz he's gay and that is wrong and very sad! Like I said everyone deserves to be happy. I am a Christian and I love you — gay or not. Because you are no different that anyone else! We are all God's children!"

Even The Hills' Heidi Montag, expected to wed Spencer Pratt this weekend, shared some insight.

"God says in the bible that we should love our neighbor and he created us all as equals. I know in my heart that gays and lesbians should have the same government rights that Spencer and I will when we get married. So, yes, this blonde Christian believes in gay marriage and I hope to one day go to your wedding, Perez!!!"
