Lena Dunham’s Publisher To “Tweak” Book Passage About College Rape

In her debut memoir, Not That Kind Of Girl, there’s a scene in which Lena Dunham describes being raped by a fellow classmate when she was attending Oberlin College. The man is named “Barry” in the book and he’s described as the “campus’s resident conservative” who wore purple cowboy pants and worked at the library. Well, it turns out that aspects of Dunham’s description of Barry match that of a former student named Barry – who was a known conservative on campus –but this Barry maintains he is not the man who raped Dunham and that the two have never met. Obviously, that hasn’t stopped some people from assuming they are one in the same, which is why Real Life Barry hired a lawyer to contact Dunham and Random House about absolving him. (He also started a GoFundMe account to pay for his legal fees, which is referenced below.) Attorney Aaron Minc says that his attempts to reach Dunham and her publisher went ignored — until they threatened a lawsuit. So, yesterday, Random House released the following statement, clarifying that Rapist Barry was not actually named Barry at all and that future printings of the book will make that clear.

Leonardo DiCaprio Leaves Club With 20 Ladies, Remains Hero To Bros Across The Land

Newly single Leonardo DiCaprio threw an Art Basel party in Miami this weekend and apparently is having no trouble navigating the nightlife circuit without his former love Toni Garrn. DiCaprio, who, lest we forget, is also the UN Messenger of Peace, sported a man bun all evening which occasionally forced him to pause for hair adjustments. As the party wound down in the early hours of Sunday morning, the New York Daily News spotted him partying with Brandon Davis and Joe Jonas [Dude. Leo. Your new "pussy posse" suckkkkks. -- Amelia] before leaving the club with every single woman who’d been chilling in his VIP section — all 20 of them. A club goer told the Daily News: “He left with 20 girls. Leo and 20 girls. He is my hero. He was overflowing with models everywhere. The Jonas brother looked scared, like he was going to drown and suffocate in the women. His face was hilarious.” No word on whether poor Joe ever recovered from the traumatic lady stampede, but Leo sure had a good time. Leonardo DiCaprio: international peacekeeper, not-yet-Oscar winning actor, national treasure to aspiring club bros across America. [New York Daily News] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Paul McCartney Reflects On The Anniversary Of John Lennon’s Death

“I was at home and I got a phone call, it was early in the morning…it was just so horrific, you couldn’t take it in…Just for days, you couldn’t think he was gone. It was just a huge shock and I had to tell Linda [Paul's late wife] and the kids. It was very difficult. It was very difficult for anyone. That was like a really big shock in most people’s lives, a bit like Kennedy… For me, it was just so sad that I wasn’t going to see him again…and for me the biggest thing was that the guy who took his life, the phrase kept going in my head ‘jerk of all jerks.’…This is not even a guy who was politically motivated, it was a totally random thing…it would have been the worst thing in the world to have this great relationship that then soured and he gets killed, so there was some solace in the fact that we got back together. We were good friends.”

Paul McCartney reflected on John Lennon’s murder on the “Jonathan Ross Show” to commemorate the anniversary of his bandmate’s death. The musician noted how glad he was that the two had reconnected since the Beatles’ breakup before Lennon’s death and what a shock the loss was. Thirty-four years ago today, Lennon was fatally shot in New York City at the age of 40. [Brooklyn Vegan] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Taylor Swift Will Sing Her Music And Her Music Only

“I’m not going to be one of those artists who walks in [to a room with songwriters] and says, ‘I don’t know, what do you want to write about?’ or one of those things where they say, ‘So what’s going on in your life?,’ and I tell them and then they have to write a song about it. I wouldn’t be a singer if I weren’t a songwriter. I have no interest in singing someone else’s words.”

Taylor Swift has been named the recipient of Billboard Magazine’s Woman of the Year Award, and opened up to the music mag about her many struggles and triumphs that took place over the last year, particularly those from her mega-success crossover album, 1989. Aside from detailing her difficulties in going pop, the 24-year-old reinforced the fact that she writes all of her own music, and more importantly, her own rules. If you ever thought you had a chance of Taylor singing one of your tunes, we hate to burst your bubble, but it won’t be happening. Girlfriend is 100 percent authentic and her songs are, and will always be, her own. That’s precisely why we love her. [Billboard]
