Morning Brew – Friday, Feb. 24: Sara Gilbert on lesbian haircuts, Lily Tomlin joins new ABC comedy

 
 

TGIF! And congrats to those of you who live in Maryland. I will come to all your weddings.

Sara Gilbert gave a lesson on lesbian haircuts yesterday on The Talk. Of course, she could only include three, but it’s pretty much anything but a bob or long hair.

What’s even more lesbian about Sara’s haircut is that her gf Linda Perry has the same one.

MTV has cancelled Good Vibes, their animated comedy starring Olivia Thirlby, after only one season. Good thing Olivia’s in a lot of movies coming up!

One lesbian thing about the Oscars this Sunday: Carol Leifer is one of the show’s writers. She talked with Vulture about writing for Billy Crystal this year.

Jessie J looks ready to turn her chair for you in this promo for The Voice UK. I love her leggings. They are so her!

Lucy Lawless loves Nurse Jackie. Are you meant to be? Send her an email — reading hers is the first thing she does in the morning.

The Hairpin has a list of “really good books about lesbians.” She’s right about 75 percent of them but I don’t know why she chose the Patricia Highsmith biography that wasn’t by Joan Schnekar. That just ruined it all for me.

Lily Tomlin has been cast as Reba McEntire‘s mom in the new ABC pilot Malibu Country. From Deadline:

Tomlin will play Shirley, Reba’s classically Southern, warm and funny (not always intentionally) mother who joins the family in their move from Nashville to Malibu.

Anything Lily Tomlin is in is worth watching!

Screaming Females have a new video for their song “It All Means Nothing.”
