Morning Brew – Kelly Clarkson covers “Girl Crush”


Good morning! I hope you had a fantastic holiday. It looks like Ellen and Portia did!


Presented without irony: Kelly Clarkson covering Little Big Town‘s “Girl Crush.”


The Washington Blade wants lesbians on Nashville, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder. Don’t we all!?

Bunny Michael‘s new music video for “A.F.D.” is like a retro video game. Super cool.

Heartbeat has a major lesbian character, and she’s a drummer named Ruby (played by Stephanie Clattenburg). (This review didn’t like the film but gives some good background on the premise.)

Fox has put a stop to production on Red Band Society, which means it’s likely to get canceled soon. It’s time for one of the aforementioned shows to hire Andrea Parker as a lesbian character.

The Daily Xtra interviewed the stars of Carmilla. Natasha Negovanlis says she’s living her dream, playing the star.

“Like, two things I’ve always wanted to play: a lesbian and a vampire!”


Out crime writer Val McDermid has a new novel out: Skeleton Road.


Samira Wiley is thankful for her gf, Lauren Morelli. SO CUTE.

Hannah Hart was on a recent panel of LGBT YouTubers for PlayList Live.

Out Mockingjay producer Nina Jacobson was featured in The New York Times magazine last week where she talked about how being out in Hollywood is an advantage.

If anything, it’s a detriment to be closeted. Being closeted in Hollywood is like wearing a toupee. It suggests that you’re not proud of who you are, and that you’re afraid of people finding out who you are. There are places where you can’t be out for fear of your life, for fear of your livelihood. Hollywood is not one of them. So to be closeted here is tantamount to being a wimp.


ICYMI, The Hunger Games movies happened because of a lesbian. Thanks Nina!
