Morning Brew – Fri. Feb. 8: Toni Braxton wants to play a butch lesbian, Jillian Michaels dons a red dress for charity


Good morning! Remember when Santana said “AfterEllen” on Glee? I was all like:

Are you wanting to watch an aesthetically pleasing yet weird and lesbianish video? Perfect, try Isolee‘s “Allowance.”

An LAPD officer that’s accused of murder left a few messages for celebrities as a bizarre sort of goodbye. One of those he left was for Ellen DeGeneres:

Ellen Degeneres, continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community. I congratulate you on your success and opening my eyes as a young adult, and my generation to the fact that you are know different from us other than who you choose to love. Oh, and you Prop 8 supporters, why the f*ck do you care who your neighbor marries. Hypocritical pieces of sh*t.


Never ask a lesbian mother “Which one of you is the mom?” or “Which one of you is the dad?”

Toni Braxton wants to play a lesbian in a movie. I’ll just let her speak for herself:

I would like to play a lesbian. I don’t know why. And do a whole make-out scene and the whole thing; just something completely different than people would expect from me. Not a lipstick lesbian either.

So Toni wants to go butch? I’d watch it!
