Broad City star Abbi Jacobson has opened up about her sexuality in a new interview with Vanity Fair, telling the magazine, “I kind of go both ways.”
“I date men and women. They have to be funny, doing something they love. I don’t know — I’ve never really been interviewed about this before.”
Jacobson confirmed that she is single, and joked about potential suitors approaching her now that she’s out. “Yeah, who knows?” she said. “The world is my oyster.”
While promoting her role in upcoming drama 6 Balloons, Jacobson also spilled some details about RuPaul’s Drag Race and the next season of Broad City.
Jacobson said that Broad‘s fifth season was almost finished — the fourth season finished airing in December last year — and that they would be altering their approach to Donald Trump. During the fourth season, any mention of his name was bleeped like an expletive. Now?
“I think we are actually trying to avoid even mentioning him. It’s not even funny anymore.”
As for Drag Race, she and Broad City co-star Ilana Glazer will be appearing in season ten as part of a challenge, with Glazer and Jacobson judging the remaining queens’ performances. No spoilers on who could walk on their episode, however, as “it’s pretty much under lock and key over there,” she said.
“I know roughly when it airs because, as a judge, I know how many contestants are left. But I can’t say.”
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.
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!
Following Tuesday’s release of the Sleater-Kinney new album No Cities to Love, NPR has made available a full video of the intimate, 90-minute panel discussion, hosted by the stars and creators of Comedy Central’s Broad City.

Glazer even read off a few questions submitted by Amy Poehler, an avowed Sleater-Kinney fan who helped will Broad City into televised existence.
Watch the new Sleater-Kinney video featuring Ellen Page, Miranda July, Natasha Lyonne, Sarah Silverman and so many more of our faves sing the band’s new song, “No Cities to Love,” which is the title track off their album, coming out next Tuesday.
