“[Being a role model] is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy.

She’s talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.”

Lena Dunham speaking to Alec Baldwin (he has a radio show!) on the tenuous relationship between fame and being a role model — especially in the case of Rihanna. Dunham makes a valid point that Rihanna isn’t simply living Rihanna’s life — she’s also a public figure that lots of little girls look up to. What do you think Rihanna’s responsibility is to her fans? [WNYC]

“Hannah acts like she has a political issue with [Sandy, the black Republican she is sleeping with], but what she actually has an issue with is him disliking what she does. Because she feels like she should receive universal praise, and the fact that someone’s sleeping with her should also mean that they respect her prose style. … I’ve had one boyfriend who I knew had an active … not dislike, but some issues with what I did. It wasn’t even like he was like, ‘I think you’re pushing a weird agenda.’ He just didn’t think I was that great a writer. It was right when ‘Tiny Furniture’ was coming out, and I didn’t love it. It’s important to me to receive constructive criticism and I don’t want to be with a yes man, but I want to be with somebody who at the very baseline level thinks that I’m talented and takes what I do seriously. I couldn’t be attracted to someone if they made work that I found absurd.”

Lena Dunham explains to New York magazine’s Vulture blog why she cast Donald Glover on “Girls” as a dude Hannah dates briefly before they get into a fight about their differences. It turns out she once had her own Sandy, but he didn’t like her movie “Tiny Furniture,” not her essay. I guess we can assume this means Dunham’s real life BF Jack Antonoff is on board with her work?

Attempting to wrest their laurels on the “Girls” juggernaut, a bunch of reality TV producers have come up with the hideous/genius idea of casting a “real-life” version of the hit HBO show. Reads the producer’s Craigslist pitch:

Ever feel like life in the big frantic city is just too much? Are you a twenty-something young woman seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential? How do you get from here to there when you can’t even get a seat on the L train! [Ed Note: Nobody gets a seat on the L train because people on the L train don't know how to ride the subway] Come to a casting call with our Emmy-winning production company and tell us your dreams and woes, your highs and lows, your tales of *** in the city and the outrageous opportunities that have come your way. Is your circle of friends bound together by not just the parties, fights, and brunches but frequent bouts of commiserating over your struggles? It isn’t easy taking the road less travelled [sic], but making it as a writer, designer, entrepreneur, actress/model or glorified dog walker never is! Keep reading »

The Heels Lena Dunham Couldn’t Walk In During The Golden Globes Were Louboutins

Can’t walk in heels? We feel you, girl. Especially for a red carpet event so high-profile and fancy, you want to feel confident, beautiful, and traditional — especially if it’s your first time there. It’s no surprise that Lena Dunham went with the safe choice in terms of red-carpet footwear — a black, peep-toe Christian Louboutin pump with a bit of a platform and a heck of a heel. However, the mix of nerves, Moët, and an unwieldy skirt probably made a precarious situation even worse. Read more…

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Golden Globes

Okay, honest: There wasn’t that much actual dreckitude at this year’s Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that’s just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don’t think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It’s just that … they could have done better. It wasn’t that, for instance, Lena Dunham looked awful — it’s just that we would have picked something else for her. Maybe something not so heavy and drapery-like. And it’s not that Kristen Wiig didn’t look like a knock out. It’s just … the belly cutout on that dress was a bit too “pregnant high school girl at the prom.” But Julianne Hough? Sorry girl, your dress was tres terrible!

So we give the “bad” rating with those caveats in mind. Everyone there last night was a winner, and way better dressed than you or me, sitting on the couch watching at home (okay, maybe just me).

And who knows … maybe by this year’s Academy Awards we’ll be able to give some of them a mark for Most Improved.

"I'm not nuts! I just want to feel it all."

Let’s see, what does this trailer tell us about the upcoming season of “Girls”? Jessa is still married to Chris O’Dowd, though it seems his parents don’t approve. Hannah is spending more time with her gay ex-boyfriend and potentially fighting with him over dudes. Marnie is still kind of sort of pining after that hot boyfriend she broke up with and then immediately wanted back, but he’s still dating the girl he took up with after her. Shoshanna is crying about something. Oh, and Hannah is still taking baths with her friends. So not much has changed except where the hell is sexy/sleazy ex-boyfriend Adam?

Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and then decide: “Hey, I’ll throw every other funny person I know in this movie! And also Megan Fox! She’ll take her top off! And swim in a bikini! And I’ll give my kids roles, too! Even though they’re not good actors!” Keep reading »
