I am not one to gossip, or follow closely the tabloids, but I just had to share with you some of Hollywood’s newest queer couples.
Wait, that doesn’t right… Portland / NYC’s newest queer couple?
The urge to merge (TV shows)
Well, regardless of the city, I can’t even begin to explain how surprised I was when the rumour surfaced that Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson is dating Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein. I have been a huge fan of Broad City since the very first episode and recently spent 2 days glued to my couch binging on Portlandia.
A couple weeks ago, in one of my Instagram stalking sessions (slightly ashamed to share that), this photo came up.
Wait, do they know each other?
As Autostraddle later speculated, Carrie and Abbi are dating, adding:
My sources on the ground in Portland tell me that these two have been canoodling up a storm.”
As invested as I was to find out what was going on, there is no real proof about the nature of their relationship.
Maybe what made me so curious about this relationship was the fact that I never even saw Abbi as “one of us”!
Her Broad City character – also called Abbi – always struck me as straight, skilfully dodging her best friend’s attempt at trying the Arc de Triomphe (inside joke, you can check out the scene.
On the other hand, Brownstein was rumoured to have dated Taylor Schilling from Orange is the New Black although, again, we can only count on photos and wild speculation to assume they were in fact dating.
Music, Movies and Moving On
Moving on to the next rumour, are Kristen Stewart and Annie Clark dating?! The musician and St. Vincent‘s front-woman, Annie, was dating model Cara Delevigne for quite some time, making it harder and harder for me to leave Instagram with every post they uploaded. I mean, come on!
On the other hand, Kristen Stewart – everyone’s favourite “not out but really out” actress – was dating Alicia Cargile or, as most tabloids put it, “they were gal pals”. The couple were then rumoured to have broken up, Kristen start seeing Stephanie ‘Soko‘ Sokolinski, and then her and Alicia got back together earlier this year.
Still with me?
But now my Instagram feed is filled with photos of Annie and Kristen hanging out in New York.
Los Angeles-based comedian Liza Dye met the pair backstage at a gig, and the pair were spotted apparently leaving the venue together, looking pretty cozy.
So, are they really dating or is this just some futile and desperate attempt to try to find the latest queer couple?
What are your thoughts on the latest couples? Are they really dating or is it just wild speculation?
