Morning Brew – “The Voice” gets a lesbian country singer

 
 

Good morning! Happy Tuesday.

TVLine has a clip of Emily and Paige fighting. Don’t shoot the messenger! Don’t shoot anyone, really.

Death to the Faux-Lesbian Pop Star Kiss! Beth Greenfield is over the whole idea and writes about it at Yahoo Shine.

Jezebel wonders if there’s such thing as a “gay sport.” The only thing that is “gay” is a person’s sexual orientation, therefore, softball cannot identify exclusively as a lesbian.

OMG January Jones was rocking a mullet back in the day and it was too good not to share. I love the k.d. lang ad that is running at the top of the page, too.

Missy Higgins composed the music for a new stage play in Australia called Cock. Yes, that is correct: Cock.

Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood are working on Into the Forest so of course they go to lunch together. They play sisters in the film.

Out producer/writer Dee Johnson is behind a new TNT drama called Guilt by Association and you’ll recognize who they just cast as one of the leads: Rose Rollins. Deadline reports that Rose (aka Tasha!) will play “stylish female prosecutor Toni LaCollette” who is BFFs with Deputy District Attorney and LAPD detective (both women!). In summary: A show about three bad ass women. I’M IN, although TNT loves to fuck with us so I’m not holding my breath for any gay. (Come on, Dee!)

The Voice has its first out lesbian contestant of the season! Kristen Merlin sang “Something More” and professed her love of country on the blind auditions last night. But it was Adam Levine and Shakira who turned for her (not her dream coach Blake Shelton), and she chose Shakira.

We’re rooting for you Kristen! (Also, make sure to check out your coach’s video with Rihanna when you get a sec.)

Lesbians, Brittany Snow has officially signed on for Pitch Perfect 2. You can freak the fuck out now.

In honor of Glee‘s return tonight, check out Naya Rivera‘s rendition of “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”

In an interview with Out, Carrie Brownstein reveals a storyline from the new season of Portlandia. Feminist bookstore owners Toni and Candace “attend a feminist wilderness retreat in which a character played by lesbian singer k.d. lang falls for a man.” This should be good!
