Part one of our Real Talk on real women's birth control options. Read More »

In light of the last month’s ruling by the Supreme Court that some employers with religious objections to birth control can deny coverage to female employees, Lena Dunham asked her followers Twitter to start an conversation about why we need the stuff in the first place.

The responses she received served as a reminder that there are about a million reasons that someone may rely on birth control — and that you don’t need a reason in the first place. Conservatives, take note. Keep reading »

5 Reasons Why You Need To Listen To Bleachers’ New Album, Strange Desire

5 Reasons Why You Need To Listen To Bleachers’ New Album, Strange Desire

Yesterday was a big release day for music lovers.  Not only did it mark the highly anticipated return of one Miss Jenny Lewis—did you see her star-studded new video for “Just One Of The Guys”?—but it also introduced fans to the debut album from Bleachers, the alter ego of singer/guitarist Jack Antonoff. Called Strange Desire, the LP features the alt-pop anthem “I Wanna Get Better,” which is a call to arms for anyone who has a permanent case of the Mondays and can’t seem to shake the black cloud overhead.

In recent years, Antonoff has become best known as one-third of the band fun. and one-half of the world’s most creative power couple (his girlfriend is actress/writer/director/goddess Lena Dunham). However, for anyone who was obsessed with the rock scene coming out of New Jersey in the early ’00s—coughmecough—then you’re probably well familiar with the singer/songwriter from his time as the lead singer of Steel Train.

It’s so great to see Antonoff back in front of the mic and fans should check out Bleachers when they roll through a town near you this summer/fall.  Also, be sure to pick up a copy of Strange Desire out now.

If you’re still not convinced you should give Bleachers a shot, then allow me to present the following five-point case. Keep reading »

Dance It Out

Lena Dunham graced “Late Night with Seth Meyers” with an interpretive dance to Sia’s “Chandelier.” Complete with a blonde wig, Lena offered her own hilarious take on the song’s music video while Sia just kinda chilled out face down on a bed onstage. Can Lena do a dance like this to every hit song? Something tells me that would make music way more entertaining. [Entertainment Weekly]

Lena Dunham Posted A Picture Of Her Bloody Panties On Instagram, Because Why Not?

Lena Dunham Posted A Picture Of Her Bloody Panties On Instagram, Because Why Not?

Does it make you feel better or worse to know Lena Dunham’s butt is bleeding from a dog bite and not a monthly visit from Aunt Flo gone wrong? Not that I have anything against period blood, but I am a little relieved that we haven’t gotten to the Sharing The Fruits Of Our Menstruation Era of social media just yet. Lena captions this pic, “My dog bit me on the ass and Jemima Kirke captured the image of a life time #hopelessromantic#therewillbeblood.” That’s quite the dog bite, Lena. I can’t wait for the “Girls” episode about it. [Instagram.com/LenaDunham]

What If Hannah From “Girls” Hung Out With Dorothy From “The Golden Girls”?

Leading Lady Drama

Ross Mathews wondered the same thing on “Hello Ross,” so he presented us with this spoof in which Dorothy (played by Jackie Beat) says some choice words to Hannah Horvath that we’ve all longed to say ourselves. Whoa, between the ugly outfit, the hand gestures and the vocal intonations, Ross has his Hannah impersonation down. Is it just me or do “Girls”/”Golden Girls” mashups sound like a thing that needs to happen more often? [Queerty]
