Morning Brew – Melissa George gets sexy and gay for Agent Provocateur


Good morning! Let’s kick off this hump day with something sexy. Melissa George stars in this Agent Provocateur ad that’s funny, sexy and lesbian.

I’m buying what they’re selling!

Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Elton John are among the celebrities who have helped style some shoes that will benefit Stonewall, the UK-based LGBT non-profit..

Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent says she’d rather be known as a lesbian than a WAG (a wife or girlfriend of a football player, or soccer player if you are in the U.S. and confused). Supposedly she said this to something that is a WAG and that has tongues wagging.

Speaking of gay for pay, Blue is the Warmest Color stars Adèle Exarchopolous and Léa Seydoux supposedly had a terrible time pretending to have sex for a graphic 10 minute scene in the new film. Apparently it had to do with director Abdellatif Kechiche as Lea told The Daily Beast:

“He warned us that we had to trust him—blind trust—and give a lot of ourselves. He was making a movie about passion, so he wanted to have sex scenes, but without choreography—more like special sex scenes. He told us he didn’t want to hide the character’s sexuality because it’s an important part of every relationship. But once we were on the shoot, I realized that he really wanted us to give him everything. Most people don’t even dare to ask the things that he did, and they’re more respectful—you get reassured during sex scenes, and they’re choreographed, which desexualizes the act.”


The interview with both actresses is worth a read if you plan on seeing the film when it comes out in October. The stars are also on the cover of Premiere this month.


Cameron Esposito was on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night and she got real gay talking about her recent engagement “to a woman.”

Then she was invited to sit with Craig and his other guest, Jay Leno.

Lesbians are truly the future of comedy. They are also the past and present.

A production of The Beeber Brinker Chronicles is playing in Palm Beach. Check it out if you like pulpy “forbidden romance” stuff!

If you follow Teen Mom at all, you might care about one of its stars, Farrah Abraham, who had this wonderful exchange with the Miami New-Times.

Do you consider yourself a feminist?

I’m pretty feminine. I think so.

Not feminine — feminist.

What does that mean, you’re a lesbian or something?


Consider the source but RumorFix claims Rihanna and Nicki Minaj spent the night together after the VMAs. Maybe they were just reading some fan fiction.

Jodie Foster will direct an episode of House of Cards as the second season gets underway. She must love Netflix.

Demi Lovato talked about joining Glee while on Live with Kelly & Michael this week:

“The day before I left for Africa I had the day off and I was going to pack and get all my errands done, and then my manager called and said [Ryan] Murphy wants to meet with you.  It was so close because had I left one day after I wouldn’t have gotten to meet Ryan, and they started shooting two days after I got back. So while I was in Africa, contracts were signed and deals were done, and then I land and I go straight to work.”
