Morning Brew – Anna Paquin and Ellen Page cover “Empire”

Good morning!

Queen Latifah takes fans behind-the-scenes of her night at the Grammys on today’s Queen Latifah Show. Check it out here!

So yes, all of the marriages were real and legal. The Insider With Yahoo talked to one of the couples, Christy and Patty Garcia, about the experience:

“Latifah came out right after the awards [and] she signed all the licenses and it was really binding,” Patty says. “To have her sign it, it became real.”

Mary Lambert talked about how it all came together and how much she cried all day long.

Linda Hamilton says she loves being on Lost Girl and this season is even better than before, and she’s working with Anna Silk more, too.

“I’ve worked with Anna — we’re in the midst of a fabulous scene right now. [I work with] Kris [Holden-Ried] as well, although we don’t have a lot to do with each other. But we’ve walked in a scene together! So, it’ll be Rachel and Kris and Anna.”

Check this shit out! Three new poems from Sappho have been discovered, and there could be more where that came from!

Gigi Chao has penned an open letter to her father Cecil after he upped his offer to any man that could de-gay her. My favorite part:

I do love my partner Sean, who does a good job of looking after me, ensuring I am fed, bathed and warm enough every day, and generally cheering me up to be a happy, jolly girl. She is a large part of my life, and I am a better person because of her.

Now, I’m not asking you to be best of friends; however, it would mean the world to me if you could just not be so terrified of her, and treat her like a normal, dignified human being.

AKA please stop trying to pay people to make her go away.

Desi Lydic played one of the gorgeous gay moms on Good Luck Charlie this week and she tweeted that she couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of the whole thing.

AE reader Julie sent us this trailer for Emily Osment‘s new movie Kiss Me (not to be confused with the 2011 film Kyss Mig), and it appears that her character’s relationship with Sarah Bolger‘s is a little more than friendly. Out writer Elizabeth Sarnoff penned the script and Jeff Probst directs, with other stars including Jenna Fischer, Rita Wilson and John Corbett. It looks fantastic!
