Sofia Black-D’Elia talked with Ology.com about playing Tea, the possible second season of Skins and if she prefers kissing guys to girls. Here’s what she said about that last thing:
Well… as a straight girl, I’m much more comfortable kissing guys! But as an actor, it was really fun for me to be able to explore all the aspects of Tea, including kissing girls. It was really intriguing to me that I wasn’t terrified of it. There were really emotional scenes throughout the ten episodes that I think I went into worrying if I’d be able to pull them off. But kissing Blaine (Betty) was never one of my worries! It was just kind of another day on the job! And also, we’ve done it so much at this point that it’s become like second nature!
I’m glad to know she wasn’t terrified. She didn’t look scared, so I guess she did her job!
Kat Dennings is on the cover of Complex this month and in a rather bizarre interview, she was asked about the double standard about men being seen as players and women being seen as sluts. Her answer gives a little insight into how she feels about labels in general.
I don’t care, to be honest with you. I think people are just people, and if they let themselves get labeled as anything, then they gotta fix it.
She won’t answer any sex questions she says — ever — so this might be all you have to work with if you’re a Kat fan.
Black Swan comes out on DVD next Tuesday and there is a a new “Black Swan Experience” which will help you figure out if you are the White Swan or the Black Swan. Here’s what I got:
I fooled them all!
Real Housewives of Orange County‘s resident lesbian Fernanda Rocha talked with The Windy City Times about her experience on the show. She told them people are most interested in the fact that she’s gay, but she doesn’t mind.
I know who I am. I do believe in my vision for life: [ to ] have a family, with a woman and a little bambino very soon. This is what I’m putting out there. What people say, I cannot control that.
Very good use of bambino. Also, she says she co-owns a gym with her ex-partner and Tamara and her will always be just friends. So if you’re heading to the Dinah next week, you have a chance!
Do you think there is sexism on Top Chef? Top Chef Masters‘ Carla Hall says there is a definite “boys club” and a “girls club.” There is also “Team Rainbow,” which straddles that line.
In the new issue of Billboard, we will find out how Lady Gaga writes her songs (awesome) and why she doesn’t wear pants (weirdest subtitle to the awesome headline).
Lynda Topp of The Topp Twins told NOW magazine why she thinks there are few out lesbian “stars”:
The fact that we came out and then got famous is the difference. You can’t do it the other way around. You can’t get famous and then come out, because then you reveal that you’ve been hiding something from your public for a long time.
I feel like most celebs would say it works better the other way around. They don’t mind lying to the public!
Out DJ/musician Kim Ann Foxman talked with ArtRebels.com and answered how she feels about being a “lesbian DJ” and if it impacts her career:
I try not to focus on the lesbian aspect. I am rather a DJ that happens to be a big homo. Music comes first. I don’t really play at many lesbian events because usually lesbians don’t love my music anyway and I feel that they usually have annoying requests. Lesbians are a tough crowd; not all, of course, but generally I think they are. I love to play for mixed parties, where it is about the music and I love to play for gay boy parties too.
I’m a lesbian and I love Kim’s music, but I know what she means. I’ve been to way too many Black Bra parties where I disagree with the popular music selection, but I was also wearing a shirt, so I guess I wasn’t the target audience.
I am not going to spoil anything for you, but if you want some answers as to this week’s episode of The Good Wife (why, Kalinda, why?), Entertainment Weekly has some for you.
Christine Vachon‘s production company Killer Films has made some of the best queer films, but she doesn’t see it like that. She tells The Windy City Times she doesn’t know what makes a movie “queer” and shares some stories about
Honestly, I just don’t think about it that much. When I first started, frankly, the so-called queer community didn’t embrace me. … They thought Go Fish was okay except—then women complained that it should have shown every single type of lesbian that existed. … I’ve never even gone to the GLAAD awards. When we made Go Fish, for example, I’m not sure that audiences today would tolerate the low-budget aesthetic of that film now. Then they did because it was so novel to specifically target a movie at gay women. Everyone forgave it for being in black and white.
That’s true — out of all the complaints I’ve heard about Go Fish, none of them were about it being in black and white.
