The singer started discussing gay rights and same-sex marriage, admitting that it's not exactly something she's familiar with, despite showing tolerance.

The Mormon leaders had a rare news conference and that's when they announced their support for the LGBT nondiscrimination bills!

Sister Neill Marriott of the LDS Church's Young Women's program said:
