Morning Brew – Thursday, Jan. 26: Cynthia Nixon clarifies her “gay choice” statement, Syd tha Kid’s new music video


Happy birthday Ellen DeGeneres! You only get better looking with age, in my opinion.

Ellen will be celebrating today on her show by having a co-host (Jimmy Kimmel) and a house band (Earth Wind and Fire). But how will she spend it with Portia? She tells AC Slater Mario Lopez:

Her birthday is the 31st, so we’re just a few days apart. We usually do a joint thing. We did one big party one year, but it’s going to be quiet. I’ve been working extra hard lately.

Watch her talk about the whole shebang in this video, in which she also discusses wearing a dress in a new JC Penney commercial and buying Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s house..

If you were hoping Cynthia Nixon would clarify her statements about her choosing to be gay, she did a little over at The Daily Beast.

I think for gay people who feel 100 percent gay, it doesn’t make any sense. And for straight people who feel 100 percent straight, it doesn’t make any sense. I don’t pull out the “bisexual” word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.

In case you are wondering how some other celesbians feel about her statements, here are a few from The Talk.

Jillian Michaels and Adriana Lima “worked” together on an upcoming Super Bowl special and posed for the cameras.

Rizzoli & Isles premieres tonight in the UK on the Alibi Channel. A reader has penned this primer for you over at, which includes a drinking game. Fun!

TVLine has an exclusive picture from the upcoming Valentine’s Day episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Here’s what Jessica Capshaw shared about the ep:

Arizona isn’t quite sure that it’s going to be a surprise that she likes. She puts on her game face because she wants to like it so bad. But she’s not entirely convinced that she will. It’s something that kind of fell into Callie’s lap that seemed lucky and she wants to share it with Arizona.

A car? A cabin? A boat? I’ll take it!

Olivia Thirlby looks super sex in this Sundance portrait. She’s at the film fest for her role in the indie Nobody Walks.

Out producer Page Hurwitz has left The Rosie Show. How will this change things? Well there will be a new set and Shane Farley will come in with his experience from working on Rachael Ray. Hope it works for you Ro!

Want a Kalinda-related Good Wife spoiler? Don’t shoot the messenger.

The Internet‘s new video features Syd tha Kid and a gal pal in a Natural Born Killers situation. It’s called “Fast Lane” and it’s kind of violent. Syd also seems to be the same “character” as from the “Cocaine” video, which is hinted at toward the end of “Fast Lane.”

I think I dig Syd’s music, but not necessarily the imagery she pairs with it.
