Morning Brew – Wednesday, July 27: Evan Rachel Wood sings Justin Bieber, 10 things you don’t know about Vanessa Carlton

Good morning!

Evan Rachel Wood was in Beijing recently and decided to do some karaoke. Here she is doing Justin Bieber‘s “U Smile.”

Nice pipes! She also does a rendition of Janis Joplin‘s “Piece of My Heart.”

A new Twitter algorithm is being designed to decide the gender the person tweeting. This could be interesting — and most likely irrelevant.

Wish Me Away directors Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf were interviewed over at Women & Hollywood. They discussed the biggest hurdles in filming the doc about Chely Wright:

BB: Her mother was always an issue. As filmmakers we had to fight for it because we knew it was an important part of the film. In a portrait like this there is always a delicate balance between access and the truth. We fought for the integrity of the story and knew that her mother would be important and it was really hard. Chely is like many gay people who do not and will never have the full support of their family.

That’s too bad. I wonder if she was jealous that Chely’s dad was on Oprah because he loves and supports his daughter.

Vanessa Carlton shares 10 things you don’t know about her over at Marie Claire.

The singer will be on Chelsea Lately and Jay Leno tonight!

Check out the new poster for Our Idiot Brother. Does Zooey Deschanel look totally bisexual to you? I knew it.

There is an actual organization called You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, Inc. and they are suing Rachel Maddow. They say she defamed its founder, Bradlee Dean, by attacking his mission, which is very blatantly homophobic. He wants $50 million. Sorry, dude. You can’t fight the RMad.
