Say goodbye to sadsacky-turned-sexier Zuckerbergian Charlie, Marnie's (Allison Williams') chewtoy on Girls (have you guys even heard of this show? Because like NOBODY talks about it). Actor Christopher Abbott and the Prince mustache he sports in his downtime have "abruptly" departed from the HBO show shortly after Lena Dunham and co. began working on Season 3.
"Chris is at odds with Lena," a source said. "He didn't like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map."
What was the offending storyline for Abbott? Does Charlie live-tweet his own late-term circumcision? Let Marnie attempt to shoot an apple off his head with a bow and arrow? Commit hara-kiri for not inventing Snapchat? Says his rep:
"[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire ‘Girls' cast and crew, but right now he's working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show."
It's the biggest in some shakeups for the show's next stretch of episodes, among them the shift of the writers room to over 50% male. [Page Six]

A tattoo artist named Keith McCurdy a.k.a. Bang Bang inexplicably asked his friend non-tattoo artist Justin Bieber to ink him up last summer. It went how you'd expect.

Bieber may be fined up to $2,000 for operating as an unlicensed tattoo artist. Refer above for McCurdy's punishment. [NYDN]
The day before former Nickelodion teen star, current Twitter-abusing cautionary tale Amanda Bynes turned 27, she was spotted on the streets of New York looking bedraggled with purple hair and those Adidas sandals people wear in public showers. OR WAS SHE.

Holy crap, how long has Topanga been making YouTube dating advice videos?
