Morning Brew – Tegan and Sara release ultra-queer video for “Faint of Heart”

Good morning!

Tegan and Sara‘s new video for “Faint of Heart” is colorful and queer as hell. You’ll spot some familiar faces, for sure.

Tegan tells Teen Vogue:

“From the second we walked in, I felt incredibly emotional. The cast was so young, so excited, so talented, so friendly and so diverse. It was clear this video was going to be very special. I felt honored to be included… which sounds silly since it was a music video for our band. But from the second we arrived, my brain recognized the music video as something we were doing together with our community to present the bravery, the talent, the love, the art, and the connection we all have, rather than just a vehicle for our music — which was a relief. It might be hyperbolic to say this, but I think it altered how we looked at how we were going to proceed in our career. The video had meaning, and that felt very important in that moment of time.”

Samira Wiley had a cool chat with The Daily Beast.

Halsey talks about her bisexuality in a new interview with Rolling Stone:

“I’ve had female relationships, but you could have dated no one and be bisexual. … The funniest thing is that the biggest battle that I’ve had to overcome in my career was not being bisexual, was not being biracial, was not being bipolar. It was everybody thinking that I was exploiting those things.”
