Morning Brew – Ellen DeGeneres covers “People”


Good morning!

Ellen DeGeneres is on the cover of People magazine this week, and inside she talks about hosting the Oscars (this Sunday night!), coming out and her relationship with Portia. (For the record, they are very much in love.) An excerpt on coming out:

After I came out, I went through a really tough time. And that’s okay. For whatever reason, it was a big deal for me to come out. To me, my coming out was the equivalent of if Liberace had come out. I didn’t think it was going to be that much of a surprise. What hurt was this: Does that label, that word, change my talent, my kindness, my heart, my intention for entertaining people? I thought everyone knew me, and I didn’t think that one little adjective was going to define me.


Katy Perry went to see Miley Cyrus perform live and Miley stopped during a song to give her a kiss. I’m sure Katy’s boyfriend won’t mind it.

Heroes is being resurrected as a mini-series in 2015! Will Gretchen and Claire be a part of Heroes: Reborn? Here’s hoping.

The New York Post has decided that Amber Heard is the new Angelina Jolie, because that can’t both possibly exist as their own people.

It’s Santana vs. Rachel in Glee‘s “Frenemies” episode. Of course.

Archie Panjabi looked radiant at the NAACP Image Awards over the weekend. The Good Wife star is on The Queen Latifah Show today, too!
