Morning Brew: Monday, Feb. 1


Happy February first.

This just in: Straight girls are fascinated by lesbians. They also know all the words to “I Kissed a Girl.” Yawn.

Speaking of Katy Perry, she’s really not helping Rihanna with those bisexual rumors.

Fernanda Cardoso (who is one of the editor/producers of The Real L Word) has just wrapped production on a new lesbian film Bloomington. The website has a ton of information on the 2010 movie, which is about a child actress turned college student who falls for her college professor. Here’s the teaser.

Famed lesbian photographer Catherine Opie‘s photos of Los Angeles mini-malls are part of “Urban Panoramas, Opie, Liao, and Kim,” an exhibit that opens tomorrow at the J. Paul Getty Museum in L.A. You can check it out until the first week of June.

Are there “lesbian secrets?” I had no idea I was keeping any! Apparently there are six that we all keep under lock and key, including our short fingernail policy. Not exactly a secret, but I suppose it doesn’t come up in daily conversation with any non-gay woman.

This Thursday, The Sarah Silverman Program returns with its third season with dykey police officer Tig (Tig Notaro) in tow. Here’s the preview, which also happens to show Sarah Silverman in a white tank top:

Peaches has out rapper and former Yo Majesty member Shunda K on her track “Billionaire,” and they recently shot the video, which has a Wizard of Oz theme. Here’s a fun shot from behind-the-scenes.

Amy Winehouse has some “close friends” that aren’t afraid to tell the press things she says in private. One of these recent statements: “So what? I like girls as well. I have had relationships with other women but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love Blake. There is something about being with a woman that is very satisfying. I don’t care what people think about me being bi — I do what feels good.” Wow, were they recording her? That’s a lot to remember, word for word.

In your bad news for the day, two lesbian favorites are now off the market. Congratulations to Drew Barrymore and Alicia Keys on their engagements. But to possibly cheer you up: Charlize Theron has split with Stuart Townsend.

Tonight, catch RuPaul on Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN at 7:30 p.m. EST. The lesbian host will talk with Ru about the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, which debuted on Logo last night.

Cross your fingers that the groundhog doesn’t let us down tomorrow — bring on spring!
