Morning Brew – Monday, Sept. 19: Brandi Carlile works with Miranda Lambert, Cee-Lo says Christina is a “Queen and a King”


Good morning guys! Did you watch the Emmys? I thought it was fabulous, thanks to Jane Lynch and many a lesbian joke. Speaking of the Lynch, here’s a fun little glimpse of her before she was a star.

After the awards were over, I went to a queer festival in Portland called Not Enough. It was rad — and my friend Emily Boyd contributed this pretty cool pice of artwork. I’d love to know what you think.

Also my friend’s band played and I totally dug it. They’re called xxxplosionzzz. Check ’em out!

Some idiot is happy that beautiful women are “finally” the top tennis players and being celebrated for it. Robert Wenzel of Economic Policy Journal wrote:

The fact of the matter is the early years of championship professional tennis were dominated by lesbians (Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Renae Stubbs, Virginia Wade), who tended to have a more severe look (Think Rosie O’Donell, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rachel Maddow). Because the sport is now more mainstream, probably, curiously enough, because of the Williams’ sisters influence, you have young, athletic, healthy looking women, without the severe lesbian look, winning championships.

Did you get that? BJK, Martina and the rest are not healthy or athletic looking. They are, instead, SEVERE. He thinks Ellen is a severe lesbian? She’s pretty tame, if you ask me.

Oh goodness, guys: A lesbian couple in Delaware are the new “Thelma & Louise.”

Why did they steal condoms? Confused.

Water Lilies director Celine Sciamma has a new movie, Tomboy touring the festival circuit, and it’s all about a young girl who begins to live like a boy. I can’t wait to see it, which is why I enjoyed reading this interview with her about the film and what movie she thinks everyone should watch (Mullholland Drive — and I agree!)

Cee-Lo said that his The Voice peer Christina Aguilera may be a diva, but she is so much more than that.

She’s got a glam squad. The word diva stems from a negative [sic] stigment. She’s a woman. A queen, and she’s a king. She’s royally successful. So, I can’t knock her about nothing. That’s Christina Aguilera. To me, she has one of the greatest voices of our time and I got nothing but respect for her.

A queen and a king — I like that.

Lady Gaga told Jean Paul Gaultier that she considers herself bisexual, but finds it a little bit problematic because she’s never been in love with a woman.

I like women, sexually, but I have always gravitated towards gay men.

You can’t have “bisexual” without the sex, Gaga, so you aren’t doing it wrong.

Apparently there was a lot of lesbian stuff in the Wonder Woman pilot, but it was really negative. So now we’re glad it wasn’t aired, right?

Did you guys know that Brandi Carlile sang at Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert‘s wedding? I had no clue. She’s also got a song with Miranda on Miranda’s new album, called “Same Old You.” Brandi wrote the song and sings backing vocals.

Two Broke Girls premieres on CBS tonight, and Liz Feldman is one of the writers. Tune in to that, as well as The Playboy Club on NBC.

AE reader Carol sent me a link to the Kickstarter for the film Rain in Summer. It looks very cute.

Australia’s Rush seems to be gearing up for a new relationship for policewoman Stella. She met a perp she takes a liking to on a recent episode, and it appears they are going to get closer after Stella escorts her home. (Thanks for the tip, Brooke!)

That’s one way to meet a lady.
