Morning Brew – Wed. April 24: Portia de Rossi on the cover of “EW,” JLo gets teary over her gay aunt

Good morning!

Out contestant Michelle Chamuel did Sia‘s “Titanium” on The Voice last night and won her battle. They didn’t show the whole thing, but what I heard and saw sounded awesome.

In this interview, Michelle talked about singing a difficult song and how she “left everything on the stage.”

Did you know Jennifer Lopez had a gay aunt? Me neither! She seems to have passed away but JLo spoke highly of her, teary-eyed, in this interview with Entertainment Tonight.

IndieWire interviewed both Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner about their documentary about elephants, as well as feminism and how women fit into Hollywood.

Rose Troche is behind this episode of Futurestates called “Elliot King is Third.” The premise:

In 2024, gender is identified by microchip implant, and trans people like Elliot are classified “third.” But can he change his identity in an attempt to build a safer life?

Bitch magazine has a piece on “Who’s Afraid of a Pixie Cut?” discussing how media outlets treat starlets who chop off their hair, assuming they are a lesbian or mentally ill.

Julie Benz and Jaime Murray know their Twitter audiences.

I cannot tell if this is for real, but it looks to be. Courthouse News Service reports:

A sorority for “masculine-identified lesbians” sued to stop an offshoot sorority from using its “proprietary rituals, procedures and plans.” Alpha Lambda Zeta Fraternity sued Rho Beta Xi Fraternity and three former members who started the competing group, in Federal Court.

I would like to pledge as part of the sister sorority of femmes.

Portia de Rossi is looking amazing on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Duh.
