This week on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother, MC Lady Sovereign was evicted from the competition. However, she was on the show long enough to finally talk about something fans have been waiting for: Her sexuality. Here's a clip:
I've tried to get interviews with Lady Sovereign a handful of times, and even had a few set up before her publicist said she wasn't picking up her phone or we'd just have to reschedule. That aside, they always asked me not to discuss her sexuality with her. Full disclosure: I briefly worked at a record label associated with Sov, where it was well known she was into relationships with women. She was also involved with someone I know, and she's never been one to play down the Sapphic references while on stage — in fact, she quite likes to play them up.
If you weren't aware of Casey Johnson while she was alive, you've most likely heard of her posthumously this week. The heiress to the Johnson & Johnson company passed away over the weekend, allegedly due to diabetes-related complications. She was 30-years-old, a mother of her adopted 3-year-old, Ava, and an out lesbian.
Unfortunately, her death has given rise to a very public and heated battle which makes rich people and lesbians alike look very sad and selfish and the media is eating it up. Casey was engaged, recently, to reality television star Tila Tequila. They courted each other only a short time before becoming engaged, as they both came from fresh break-ups, sharing the same ex-girlfriend, Yahoo! heiress Courtenay Semel.
