Wow, “Girls,” Lena Dunham’s critically acclaimed show about being a twentysomething in New York City, is back quicker than I expected — the second season premieres January 13 on HBO and the trailer has just hit the web. Here’s what we know is ahead: Adam still has a boner for Hannah, but she’s not sure… READ MORE »

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which… READ MORE »

“Girls” creator Lena Dunham has come out as a supporter of President Obama by recording this campaign video, in which she talks about her first time … voting, that is. “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody,” she says. “It should be with a great guy.” Dunham goes on to say that voters should cast their ballot… READ MORE »

If you haven’t fallen in love with Caitlin Moran, there is something wrong with your head. Earlier this year, the Times Of London columnist published a brilliant modern-day feminist screed called How To Be A Woman; I literally can’t keep it on my bookshelf for longer than five minutes before another girl friend wants to borrow it.

“Girls” star Lena Dunham evokes a passionate response from bloggers and journalists, especially in women’s media. So I’m a bit nervous about admitting that my thoughts on Dunham’s oeuvre is neutral, even dispassionate. She’s overexposed for a small and fairly meh body of work:  “Tiny Furniture” wasn’t that great and I got bored with “Girls” READ MORE »

No, girl, no. Just no. “Girls” creator Lena Dunham tweeted a TwitPic of herself this week, her head wrapped in what looks like a blanket as if it as an Islamic veil, with the caption “I had a real goth/fundamentalist attitude when I woke up from my nap.”

I leave it to the… READ MORE »

What might happen if the hit HBO show “Girls” was moved from New York to Los Angeles, and starred a cadre of a neurotic dudes, rather than a bunch of self-involved girls? This hilarious parody video, “Boys,” shows us the bleak truth. [YouTube] … READ MORE »

“Zooey Deschanel and I have been e-mailing all morning, like, ‘Can you believe the women that we are getting mentioned in the same breath as?’ Also, we’re planning our Emmy nails … She’s got a lot of nail style. I mean, I have a couple ideas, too … I want to shock the world with… READ MORE »

“When searching my inbox last night for an e-mail from Nora, to get the specifics of her phrasing, I came upon this sign-off to a short but sweet one thanking me for lunch: “see you somewhere… xox.” Somewhere, it turns out, is everywhere. I see Nora in the home I wouldn’t live in if not… READ MORE »

Q: One of the most talked-about new shows has been Girls. Do you watch that one?
Snooki: No.
Jenni: Never heard of it.
The pop culture zeitgeist just exploded, because “Jersey Shore”‘s Snooki and JWoww admit they’ve never even heard of “Girls.” Take that, Lena Dunham! [NY Mag.com] … READ MORE »

Spoiler alert! I am not going to tell you who got married — you’ll have to watch the video to find out — but I am going to say that I am excited about what the marriage means for the sexy quotient in “Girls” second season. As for the season finale of what has been,… READ MORE »

“My biggest nightmare is that I do something where [HBO would] be like, ‘That’s why you don’t give shows to 25-year-old girls.’ I’m always afraid that I’m being unprofessional, yet I continue to sign all my e-mails ‘xoxo.’ All my freakouts have been pretty private and directed at family pets and/or people I have been… READ MORE »

These “Girls”-themed paper dolls come with all the characters’ necessary accoutrements — like Shoshanna’s abortion snacks, Hannah’s diary and Jessa’s pregnancy test. See one more after the jump and the rest… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

“Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting. If I had one of the four girls, if, for example, she was African-American, I feel like — not that the experience of an African-American girl and a white girl are drastically different, but there has to be specificity to that experience [that] I wasn’t able… READ MORE »

I’m happy to report that despite the early backlash, “Girls” just keeps getting better and better. Last night’s episode started with Hannah being texted a photo of Adam’s penis — only to have him text her again to apologize … because it wasn’t meant for her. Then, at her new job, Hannah is expected to… READ MORE »

I have never watched HBO’s new show “Girls.”  Not because I don’t want to — I’m actually excited to see a new female-centered TV show that allows actresses to play rich and diverse characters.  But unfortunately, the current role I play in real life, that of a struggling comic/actress, does not afford me the opportunity… READ MORE »

“When we made [“Girls”]t, we always knew that it was a show you should fight about. It was built to be a show that you’d have to defend or argue about — for some people, it would make them angry — and we go over that terrain for the course of the 10 episodes. So hopefully people… READ MORE »
