Morning Brew – Tues. Feb. 12: Brooke Candy has a butch fluffer in her new video, lesbianism in “The Nun”


Good morning!

OK, so Brooke Candy identifies as a lesbian but this song “I Wanna Fuck Right Now” is very, hmm, “dick” heavy. But she’s a rapper/stripper (former stripper?) so maybe it’s just about her on-stage persona. At any rate, her butch fluffer is pretty rad. I need one of those.


Good news guys!

Tune in tomorrow to watch their performance.

R.I.P. Charlie Morgan, who was fighting for her partner to receive her benefits from the National Guard after she passed. She spent her last days working for her family and for us.

Tom Tom magazine has an interview with out drummer Ana Briseño of Magic Mouth. They are a band you need to know. Maybe you saw them open for Gossip and you already do.


Speaking of rad music, the xx play a Tiny Desk Concert over at NPR.

The Nun premiered at Berlinale this week and it has a lesbian subplot. Isabelle Huppert plays one of the lesbian nuns and says she likes her sadistic character:

It’s the kind of character you have to sort of take out of the caricature and go beyond certain images that you have with such behaviour and such a character. And actually, the way the script was written and the way Guillaume directed it made it very easy to go beyond the caricature.

Yes, this film is not super holy. Check out the French trailer.


Speaking of nuns…


In Part 2 of her Fashion Week Diary, Casey Legler writes about being BFF with Eileen Myles. As if I could not want her to be my boo thang any more than I already do.

Also at Fashion Week, Jenna Lyons and her partner Courtney Crangi.

Novelist Jackie Collins says she thinks “a lot of women cheat with other women — more than we know.” She tells Huffington Post:

Oh, yes! I think there’s a whole underground culture of women who cheat with other women and get away with it. I think they almost prefer that, in a way, because they’re getting something different and satisfied at the same time.

That does not work if you are a lesbian. Oh hellllllll no.
