I guess Lady Juggernaut and “Girls” creator Lena Dunham had a birthday last week, and to celebrate she decided to throw herself a birthday party. At spin class. Yes, that’s right, Dunham invited her friends to celebrate her annual name day (as the “Game of Thrones” folk call it) by making them get together and sweat it out on a bunch of friggin’ spin bikes at Soul Cycle.

As much as it pains my Brooklyn heart to say this, this little video from a couple of cool Portland parents might just score extra points in the Portland vs. Brooklyn battle.

“I forget about them because they’re in my face and they do their job just great. I never get anything stuck in them.”
– “Mad Men”‘s marvelous Jessica Paré, on her signature gap teeth. Jessica also dished a tiny bit about the future of her character Megan’s relationship with hubby Don Draper, noting that “we all know this is not a show about Don Draper being a happy, healthy man.” Uh oh. [New York]

L.A.’s Wango Tango fest gathers together pop stars and music fans for a day of music and fun. Justin Bieber was there, which makes sense, but also “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” trainwreck Taylor Armstrong. Does she even know who Justin Bieber is? There was lots of outrageous/horrible fashion, too, because 1) It’s a festival 2) It’s in Los Angeles. So consider that we’re grading on a curve as you flip through and check out the horror show after the jump!
