Morning Brew: Tegan and Sara at the Woodie Awards, Paily is on for “Pretty Little Liars” season 4


Good morning, Brewbies! Let’s kick of Monday with some bad news/good news. The bad news: Paige McCullers will not be gracing us with her presence during tomorrow night’s Pretty Little Liars season three finale. The good news: Season four started filming late last week, and Lindsey Shaw tweeted from set Friday night with a Paily update:


Tegan and Sara co-hosted the the mtvU Woodie Awards over the weekend, where they also performed “Closer” to the hyped up SXSW crowd. I’m psyched beyond measure at the revolutionary way things are changing for gay people these days, but it still blows my mind a little bit (in the best possible way) to see a herd of college students going full-on Beatles-mania while a sexy butch sings “All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me.”


Here’s a thing you don’t see every day: back-to-back stories about famous lesbian twins. The Topp Twins, the country music-singing comedy duo from New Zealand, made more history this weekend when one of the sisters, Lynda Topp, had her wedding featured on the cover of Woman’s Day magazine. It’s the best-selling Kiwi weekly and this is the first time they’ve ever given a cover spot to a gay wedding. Congrats to Lynda and her bride, who were married at their lodge on March 9th!

(If you’ve never seen the documentary The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, you should probably do that.)

The fun folks who run Entertainment Weekly‘s Tumblr posted a photo of a pair of special guests that stopped by their office on Friday. You know, just Annie Clark and Cristine Prosperi, a little Degrassi dynamic duo called Fimogen.

Forbes has released their annual list of most influential celebrities. Suze Orman is the only gay person on the list, landing at #9 with the notable attribute “good energy.” Oprah tops the list again for the zillionth year in a row, which is, of course, correct.
