Morning Brew – Tig Notaro tells her adorable engagement story


Good morning!

Robin Roberts is on the cover of AARP magazine this month, and she’s proud to be 54.

She talks about her partner, Amber, too.

Amber [Laign] looks so much better in this picture than I do. It was my 50th-birthday celebration, and she had heard me moaning and groaning about some kind of party. I’d told her all I wanted to do was dance on the beach. We were on Turks and Caicos. She set the whole thing up — a dance floor on the beach — as a surprise. But then it rained. Still, I was just thrilled that she heard me. With Amber and me there’s no fuss. We’re so happy. We’ve been happily in a relationship for 10 years and are looking forward to the next 10 after that.

Singer Kehlani talked about her sexuality with Complex.

“Regardless of whether or not you accept it, I am not afraid to tell you how it is. I think it’s important that there is a voice for that right now. I wouldn’t even necessarily say I’m bisexual—I like who I like. I’ve dated both men and women. Sex is biological, but gender is mental. I’ve been with people who aren’t what they’re born into. You fall in love with a person’s mind, you fall in love with a person’s soul, not with whatever’s down there.”
