Did you watch the season premiere of SNL this weekend? Kate McKinnon is back to being awesome. Details spoke with the comic about kissing Louis C.K. when he hosted last year.
If you asked me to seriously kiss someone on a screen, I would be very uncomfortable. But I will lick any part of your face. So what was just supposed to be a little gross turned into a dance of mouths and of hair and of teeth. He’s the best bad kisser. There’s no one I’d rather bad kiss.
In some shitty news, SAG-AFTRA did a study in which they asked union members how gay and lesbian actors are seen in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately this is what came out of it:
The survey, based on responses from over 5,600 union members, showed nearly half of lesbian and gay respondents and 27% of bisexual respondents “strongly agreed” that producers and studio execs believe that lesbian and gay performers are less marketable.
Tell that to Ellen DeGeneres and Neil Patrick Harris!
The New York Times magazine profiled director Kimberly Peirce and she discussed everything from her work on Boys Don’t Cry to the upcoming remake of Carrie. The writer calls her a “butch sprite” and then breaks my heart by telling me about a movie Kim wanted to make but couldn’t.
She pitched the idea of “Butch Academy,” a queer romantic sex comedy (think Woody Allen as a butch lesbian wooing a femme) to Universal. They loved the idea and suggested she take it to Judd Apatow, who advised her through a year of writing. Universal bought it but has yet to make the film; it was too edgy. “That’s not surprising given that it was very queer,” said Peirce, who plans to rewrite it. “It had transmen transitioning, it had butches and straight men sharing advice about how to please women. It crosses some boundaries.”
THIS IS MY DREAM MOVIE KIM PEIRCE. I’m going to hold out hope it can happen in the future.
Bisexual actress Olivia Thirlby has joined the cast of a new wedding day romantic comedy from the writers of The Break Up. It sounds like she’s going to play “girl dude falls in love with” or “girl dude is trying to get away from.” Yay.
Michelle Rodriguez talked with Entertainment Weekly about people “assuming she’s a lesbo”:
I don’t talk about what I do with my vagina, and they’re all intrigued. I’ve never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she go with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I’m a lesbo. Eh, they’re not too far off. I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too fucking curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.
It’s much more fair to be assumed straight than a lesbo! Sigh.
Heather Morris had her baby! It’s a boy and his name is
Brittana Elijah. This is how excited Naya Rivera was for her.
Just kidding, that’s how thrilled she was when her brother Mychal scored a touchdown for the Oakland Raiders.
I really enjoyed this headline: “Abbey Clancy’s sexy Strictly Come Dancing routine sparks lesbian ‘crush’ frenzy on Twitter.” Also, it must be a slow news day for The Daily Star.
Brazilians Joana Palhares and Yunka Mihura were arrested for kissing at a public evangelical event. Yunka told Public Radio International:
“That stage, that microphone, everything was with public money. It was also an open space, on Beach Street. It was our right to be there.”
They also said they were sexually harassed by the cops. WTF Brazil?
