Morning Brew – Amy Poehler talks lesbian porn with Howard Stern

on

Good morning!

Amy Poehler told Howard Stern she is a porn fan, and that she has watched lesbian porn, but it’s not “really her thing.” Because they are FAKING THAT SHIT. Specifically, she says:

“It’s not too crazy. I like my porn like my comedy: Done by professionals, women who are at the top of their game. So, I like professional ladies who are enjoying themselves. I’m not an amateur person. I want everybody to look good and be good at their jobs.”

Singer Catey Shaw is queer and talked about her song “Outer Space” with Out.

“’Outer Space’ was the story of meeting my first girlfriend. We went to a diner and we were just hanging out and it was this thing of me discovering my feelings. She was a straight girl and I was just worrying about ‘I can’t help that I feel this way and I don’t want to creep you out. I don’t know if I’m getting a vibe from you or if I’m making it up myself, but I need you to know that this is how I feel and I can’t stop myself from feeling this way.'”

“I like scripts that have a narrative prose feel. For me, a lot of it is about not letting myself be pigeonholed, put in a box: ‘Oh, you can only do gay films, teenage films, films about women.’ I happen to love women and doing films with women, so that’s true. But I also want to expand.”
