Pop Culture Fix: Tig Notaro Is Baffled You Think She’s “Sexy AF” But Her Wife Is Super Into It

I hope you’re taking care of yourself and letting other people take care of you when you’re able to, my dear friends. Here’s your Wednesday Pop Culture Fix.

+ Tig Notaro stopped by Fallon this week to talk about Twitter going berserk over the photos of her in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Army of the Dead.  She seemed genuinely baffled, but also she couldn’t stop bringing it up. 😂

“Oh my gosh, so much has changed, Jimmy. It’s really been nuts around here since I was trending for being sexy AF. I didn’t even know what ‘AF’ was, to be honest. My friends were texting me images of Twitter. They were like, ‘You’re trending for being ‘badass’ and ‘sexy AF,’ and I was like, what is that?”

+ Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg, Shonda Rhimes, Yvette Nicole Brown, Mariah Carey, Stacey Abrams, and others react to the Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict.

+ The trailer for The Upshaws, starring Wanda Sykes, as arrived.

+ Netflix has renewed Ginny & Georgia for a second season.

+ Unsolved Mysteries is a podcast now, and it’s got lots of aliens.

+ Nina West and Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk are teaming up to create a variety show for kids.

+ Netflix’s :murderously sexy teen drama” Élite returns for a fourth season this summer, and season four promises some queer love (or at least lust).

+ JoJo Siwa cuddled up with her girlfriend on a family Disney trip and said she was “so so so happy.”

+ Pose will be honored at Human Rights Campaign’s virtual event Time for Equality Live.

+ The High Court in Mombasa has declined, once again, to lift the ban on Rafiki.

+ Here’s a sneak peek of Margaret Cho on the Good Trouble season finale.

+ Andra Day and Roxane Gay in conversation about suffering in art and racism in addiction.

  1. OH MY GOD LIFT THE BAN ON RAFIKI ALREADY. They’re still debating about this?
    It makes me want to watch it again though. Probably one of my favorite queer lady films. It’s colorful and emotional, the cinematography and the actresses and everything is just so beautiful and I could gush about it forever.
    If you haven’t seen it, go watch it now! Trust me, you won’t regret it!

  2. Anyone heard about New Zeland’s new TV show Creamerie?

    “Eight years after a plague killed all men, three women who run a dairy farm accidentally run over the last surviving male human on the planet in this darkly funny, dystopian series.”
