Morning Brew – Mary Lambert, Tig Notaro up for Grammys

 
 

Good morning!

If you haven’t seen the Kanye West video for “Bound 2,” then you might not appreciate this as much as I do. Ellen DeGeneres showed off her new Christmas card for this year with wife Portia, and it’s a take on the video, which also stars Kanye’s boo Kim Kardashian. Hilarious.

Samantha Ronson‘s ex-girlfriend is getting a reality show on VH1. (Not Lilo, the other one.) Erin Foster and her sister Sara will be the focus of a “comedy reality series” that “explores the hypocrisy of reality TV by centering around two sisters who say they would never do a reality show, but are being filmed by a camera crew.”

Icona Pop wishes they were lesbians. Don’t they know they could pull a t.A.T.u. and just pretend to be?

Lost Girl fans, why did Bo and Lauren not have a “full-on sex scene” in this week’s episode? Producer Emily Andras explains:

I certainly want people to know that it wasn’t due to any conservatism on our part. We have a lot of sex on this show and we’re never scared to go for it. And there are certainly some sex scenes coming up that are deliciously borderline as anything we’ve done. But this decision was purely a result of story.

I think we wanted more of a romantic feel to the reunion. These girls have so much to talk about, and I honestly feel like we just didn’t have time to do more with the pace of the story. But, there may be opportunity for more fabulous sex scenes going forward….
