Hannah Twerks Against A Gravestone In The “Girls” Season 3 Trailer

Twerk It, Horvath.

I can’t believe “Girls”‘ third season starts in less than two months. It feels like just yesterday that the show was making its debut to a chorus of equal parts “IT’S THE BEST THING ON TV EVER” and “THIS SHIT DOESN’T REPRESENT ME OR ANYONE I KNOW.” So what’s ahead for “Girls” in season three? More of the same, from what I can glean! Hannah and Adam seem to be together and traversing through the wilderness, Jessa is back and more luminous than ever, Ray is still a loser and there’s not nearly enough Shoshanna. And, as these are post-Miley times, Hannah finds time to twerk against a gravestone. I’m sure there’s a great reason! Will you be watching on January 12? I will, but I’m just as predictable as they are.

No Princess Tea Parties Necessary!

We are obsessed with this brilliant commercial by toy company Goldie Blox, which aims to inspire and educate future female engineers. Their goal is to “disrupt the pink aisle,” as little girls are interested in lots of cool toys but primarily targeted with princess dresses and pop star dreams. The company’s creator, Debbie Sterling, is a Stanford engineering graduate disappointed with how few female classmates she had. Only 11 percent of engineers are female and Sterling believes that encouraging girls to be inventive at an early age with construction toys that come from “a female perspective” is a step in the right direction. The video takes the notoriously sexist “Girls” by the Beastie Boys and revamps it as something of a feminist anthem as the girls in the commercial get creative with household items — and those silly feather boas and tea sets they’re “supposed” to be sashaying around in. Anyone else want to adopt these three? [GoldieBlox]

Adam Driver Refuses To Watch Himself On “Girls”

“With ‘Girls,’ after I saw the pilot, I was like, ‘There’s no way I can watch the rest of this series, especially if it continues to go on,’ because I feel like there’s an impulse to try to make it look better or neater or more perfect, and when I watch theater, television, movies, it’s always the imperfection I’m always more attracted to. And I feel like with the things I’m in that I have watched, I go into a spiral and obsess about all the mistakes I made. Even with the pilot — there are so many mistakes I wish I would have changed, but you know, you just can’t. I’ll drive myself crazy and the people around me crazy for months, just thinking about it.”

Here’s a surprise: Adam Driver doesn’t watch himself on “Girls.” I mean, hey, his character does do some pretty bizarre stuff and I don’t know that I’d want to watch myself act that out on camera either. Fortunately the rest of us can still watch “Girls” without wanting to obsess over every little thing. Set your DVR for the January 12 premiere!  [NYMag.com] [Photo: Splash News]

"Saturday Night Live"'s "Girls" Promo Features A New, Rubber-Handed Albanian Roommate Played By Tina Fey
"Please, may I eat donut from your head?"

Who’s excited for the third season of “Girls”?! I am, especially after seeing this new promo which indicates the show is finally getting a dose of real diversity. Hannah has a new roommate — and she’s from Albania! Surely nothing will make whiny twentysomethings Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa realize how good they have it like hearing the sad story behind Blerta’s rubber hand. Right?
