This American filmmaker and actress created a famous HBO show that narrates the inconsequential problems of a group of twenty-something friends living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
In a mega-glam cover interview, Lena Dunham told Marie Claire UK that she's confident about her body. U guise know that?
"This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I’d be like: 'I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me. And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.'"
And on the women's magazine industry's slow acceptance of various body types:
"I do think it takes fashion magazines a minute to be comfortable with variations of any kind. Adele is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but every time I see her on the cover, it’s like a crop of her face and it’s just so boring at this point. It’s such a boring conversation."
Sean Kingston is being sued along with two members of his posse by a now-22-year-old woman who claims to have been gang raped by them in a hotel room in 2010.
After being invited to Kingston's room following a concert, "the bodyguard picked her up and placed her on top of Kingston, and all three of the men proceeded to gang rape her while she was 'obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent.'" The case was thrown out in 2010 for lack of credibility. [TMZ]
Lindsay Lohan has her first real sober gig! She's been asked to host Saturday Night Live's season premiere. While SNL is slightly risky because it's hardly a bastion of teetotalers (listen close enough and you can still hear Belushi and Farley snorting and asking people if they could borrow money), yay.

I know we're all sick as fuck of Miley Cyrus but I think this is worth it — the guy who invented the foam finger is appalled and disgusted that it has been used for such a purpose:
"She took an honorable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it. If I had a choice between Julie Andrews singing 'The Sound of Music' and Miley Cyrus doing 'Can't Stop,' I'd go the Julie Andrews route. Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident."
