Miss Universe 2014 Live Q and A: Mary Jean Lastimosa answers rumored rift with Miss Colombia

Miss Universe 2014 Live Q and A with Miss Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa has just concluded.

MJ Lastimosa answered questions from fans around the globe in the live Q&A event conducted earlier in the official Miss Universe Facebook Page. Candidates from Myanmar (Sharr Htut Eaindra) and Venezuela (Migbelis Lynette Castellanos) already had their live Q and A prior to Miss Philippines.

MJ received hundreds of questions, but answered only a few of them due to limited time. She was able to answer questions about her favorite Britney Spears, about Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines, who her friends are among the candidates, her strongest competitors, what she thinks of Miss Venezuela, the gown she's wearing during the preliminary event or in the finals, and if there's any truth to her rumored rift with Miss Colombia Paulina Vega.

There were also a bunch of queries we usually hear being asked in beauty pageants, like for example about plastic surgery, the role women play in the society, what she's gonna do first if she wins Miss Universe 2014, the meaning of true beauty, relevance of pageants etc.

I have re-posted here some of the questions and MJ's answers. It will take much time, but worth-reading.

Fauzy Irwansyah: "What do you think about fake beauty/plastic surgery in pageants?"

Marky Bartolo: "If you would be given a chance to speak with Pope Francis, what would you tell him?"

Audrey Lopez: "Miss Universe's rival pageant (Miss World) has recently announced their cancellation of swimsuit competition. Now my question is: How would you convince the world that the swimsuit competition is still significant in beauty pageants such as Miss Universe?"
MJ: "omg the feeling when you wear your swimsuit on stage is amaaaazing, coz you are there not because you wanted to be in a skimpy clothes but you are there to show that confidence can never be affected by the clothing you wear, and add to that the inspiration you create to men and women across the world, you will see the gym packed the next day for sure! fitspiration"

Cham Jasmin: "What role do you think should the 21st century women play in the society?"
