Good morning! Thanks to Heather Hogan for Brewing while I was out last week.
I love Gabrielle Union so hard. She’s played a lesbian in Running with Scissors and I’m waiting patiently for her to do it again. In the meantime, she is talking about her crushes on anchorwomen:
Soledad O’Brien! But I’ve been obsessed with her for years. The “Black in America” series, they take up a lot of space in my DVR, and I refuse to erase them. If you come over my house you’re gonna watch some part of “Black in America.” I will make sure the conversation is steered toward something that gives me a reason to watch “Black in America.” She has a rare combination of being painfully genuine and honest and delivering information in a way that you believe her and you trust her and you like her. You usually don’t have all of those things. Some people deliver the information and you’re like, ‘Great. I should evacuate.’ But you don’t like them. And then some people are super likeable or they might not be as smart or as clever. You don’t trust them. So she, to me, is one of those people that is the perfect combination. Throw in a little Roland Martin — I don’t wear ascots! – but … like, Roland might be able to drop it like it’s hot on the dance floor, so some of the scenes where she’s partying with her friends, that’s Roland.
Miley Cyrus said she would “definitely make out with Rihanna.” Well DUH.
Zoe Saldana talked with BET about stereotyping and categorizing. She was asked about her recent possible coming out and, well, she basically said she’s only been with men but she could end up with a woman, maybe.
All My Children will only air two episodes a week instead of four from now on.
Lisa Ling named her daughter after Joan Jett. I love her even more now.
A teenage lesbian in Sacramento had her ponytail cut off by some bullies. WTF?!
Also in WTF, a Texas judge has forbidden a lesbian from living with her partner. This is why I could never live in Texas, despite my strong affection for Austin.
Carrie Brownstein showed up on SNL this weekend to pay tribute to her Portlandia co-star Fred Armisen. She comes in around 1:44.
Under The Bridge Of Fear is a “Sapphic-themed” noir short at Cannes. So if you’re at the film fest, check that out!
L.A., you are so lucky: Ciara and Uh Huh Her will be performing at your Pride.
