While you were sleeping, Miley Cyrus performed on Britain’s Got Talent. The only reason I’m writing these words on AfterEllen.com is because the pop star simulated kissing a female dancer during her dance routine.
Don’t worry, impressionable tween fans — no lips actually touched. It was pure acting, and she was just getting a little crazy with her choreography because it was a song about being wild — she “Can’t Be Tamed.”
So she’s jumping on the lady kissin’ bandwagon, but with less commitment. Still, the fact that this was the biggest news on the ‘net today means that some young little Hannah Montana fan in small town, Alabama will ask her mom, “Ma, what’s a lesbian?”
I’m most interested in what happens now, after the simulated kiss and the immediate press requiring Miley to explain herself. Stay tuned.
They’ve got it down to a science! Congrats lovebirds.
The Sundance Channel is playing episodes of the popular web series Lizzy the Lezzy on June 6. You can watch them all on their website, too. Score!
Here’s what Sinead O’Connor thinks.
Yes, that really is her.
Janis Ian is a true rock star. A profile of her in the Jewish Chronicle is all about how she used to do cocaine with Jimi Hendrix and the death threats she received after releasing “Society’s Child,” her song about an interracial relationship. Gotta love the ’60s!
Kathy Griffin is looking to win some more Emmys, including one for her performance as the lesbian activist on Law and Order: SVU this year. Here’s her campaign:
The L.A. Times sucks for this headline: “Zoe Saldana comes out of the closet at Women in Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards.” The actress gave the following speech at the awards, which prompted the story:
Zoe, that’s not being closeted; that’s being forgetful. And a tease.
Sia‘s ballad “My Love” is on the Eclipse soundtrack and boy, does it seem like it was made to be Bella’s Swan song. (Sorry, I had to.)
Lastly, the women of The Real L Word have posed for a NOH8 photo. I can see it in their eyes: “Stop hatin’!”
Have a great weekend, guys.
