Good morning! Kristen Merlin survived her first week on The Voice live shows. She tweeted this happy photo with her mentor Shakira. Ellen Page will rename your dog. Iggy Azalea‘s album The New Classic dropped yesterday and it’s really, really good. She talked with two gay publications about how much she loves her LGBT fans and the community, in general. Some choice quotes:
She was so good at The Dinah. A married lesbian threesome is having a baby. Truth is often stranger than fiction. Another Sapphic subplot is happening on EastEnders. It appears Sonia Fowler will be “making a move on Tina Carter.” Sonia is otherwise straight and married, while Tina is openly gay. Natalie Cassidy plays Sonia and says of the new storyline:
Bollywood star Monica Dogra will play a lesbian in a new short film alongside out model Casey Legler. The short, called Relapse, follows “Two women whose marriage crumbles when Casey’s character decides to undergo a sex change operation to become a man.” Monica spoke highly of working with (and kissing) Casey. I’m just over here completely not jealous. Monica is also a gorgeous model, BTW. Looking for more Laura Prepon? She spoke with The Daily Beast about why she she didn’t sign on for more of Orange is the New Black‘s second season.
Want to read something really dumb? “Four Signs You Are Dating A Lesbian,” because “more than a woman, it is her boyfriend who would know if he is dating a lesbian girlfriend.” Did you know you can watch the Season 2 premiere episode of Orphan Black on the BBC America website right now? Here’s a little look at what you can expect next week.
Judy Gold will be answering parenting questions for People. This should be great! Bitch covers queer comics, as in the drawn-on-paper type. How did that brilliant SNL sketch Dyke & Fats come to be? Kate McKinnon explains:
The rest is sweet history. Jo Becker‘s Forcing the Spring is about the fight for marriage equality, but Slate says it’s not all that accurate. Paula Pell‘s film The Nest, starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as sisters, will hit theaters on December 15, 2015. Amber Heard is going “goth chic” on the set of her new film, When I Live My Life Over Again. Wanda Sykes will be hosting TrevorLive this year. The event goes down in New York on June 16. There’s been an update on the murder of the lesbian couple in Texas. Their car has been found with blood evidence, which should be helpful in the continuing investigation. In case you want to watch Sue Sylvester make her New York debut from last night’s Glee, Perez Hilton has her duet with Mr. Schue. Do you ever get tired of Idina Menzel singing “Take Me or Leave Me?” Me neither. A couple of worthy projects to check out: GayFace 1st Class and The Sundance Institute. Queer photography and film! The creator/star of Girl/Girl Scene, Tucky Williams has a new project coming out at the end of this month.
