Morning Brew – Monday, Feb. 6: Miley Cyrus kisses her friend in “LOL,” Cee-Lo talks about Rihanna’s lesbian fans


Good morning! Did you watch the Super Bowl?

Miley Cyrus kisses her friend in a photobooth in the upcoming film LOL. Obviously her character watches Pretty Little Liars.

Miley also wrote a piece for Glamour about why she got a gay-themed equality tattoo.

Lauren Virginia Albert is one of the actors joining Girl/Girl Scene‘s second season. Watch Tucky Williams interview her about her girl crush and more.

Cee-Lo says he could never be homophobic because he’s too much of a “free bird.” That being said, he offended some last year when he asked a critic who didn’t like his show if they were gay. Yes, she was — but Cee-Lo thought the writer was a dude. Cee-Lo told Esquire his side of the story:

Rihanna has a large lesbian community that comes out to see her shows. ‘Cause she does a lot of girl-on-girl kind of stuff. It’s very racy and sexually charged. And I like that. I like aggressive and sexually liberated women. It’s hot to me. So we were doing a show in Minneapolis, and I thought I’d rev it up in my own way. I like to have fun. I’m definitely sexually liberated and all that good stuff. I was talking a little junk on the microphone. I said to the crowd, “Hey, do you guys realize that I’m just foreplay, and Rihanna’s gonna come out here and f–k you?” I was talking s–t. And it turns out, the journalist who wrote all those negative things about the show was not a man, but a gay woman. I guess my overbearing testosterone was offensive to her. She was completely appalled by my behavior. But come on, some of these people who lashed out against me on Twitter, calling me a homophobe, that’s just wrong.

Cee-Lo and Steven Tyler are both kind of cringe-inducing to me when they make overtly sexual comments to women like it is their right, but I do believe Cee-Lo is not homophobic. That being said, I need to go to a Rihanna concert right away.

Actress Kate Del Castillo may have done some lesbianish stuff in Without Men and a soap opera, but she insists she’s straight. She’s also playing the role of the transgender prison inmate in the upcoming K-11. (Remember that one? Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed were supposed to be doing it together. Are they even friends anymore?)

ABC has ordered a pilot for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi‘s dueling sister comedy sitcom. Portia plays one of the sisters and I can’t wait to see it on my TV.

Team Dresch‘s “She’s Amazing” tops the list of “10 Anthems for a Feminist Revolution” over at Spinner. Also on the list, “Lola” as covered by The Raincoats, aka the song I named by dog after.

Elsewhere in lists, the Batwoman series took number one in Ranker’s “The 10 Most Important Gay Moments in Comic Book History.” Renee Montoya is number seven.

You want a sexy Santana mash-up? It will save you time from having to re-watch all those Glee performances for a glimpse of Naya Rivera‘s cleavage.

Kate Clinton is on the premiere of Smash tonight as a Broadway executive judging audtionees like Katherine McPhee. Kate told Jim Halterman of the experience:

It was so exciting! It was amazing to be around those young singers and then to do another take and they were just blasting out. It was awesome! The pilot was picked up for 13 episodes and I certainly reminded them that I’d love to [come back on] and I’m available. If they go back to that audition room then I’m there.

Catch a glimpse of her at about a minute in in this preview.
