Despite all the criticism, Lena Dunham has emerged triumphant. Her hit HBO series, Girls, just won two Golden Globes on the same night that season two premiered. It’s safe to say that she’s hitting a pretty sweet streak right about now. She spoke to Vulture about the criticism, Donald Glover and why people have to understand that Taylor Swift is a role model. Seriously.
Like three quarters of the girls that follow me love Taylor Swift, and one quarter are hipster doofuses who think the fact that she is … here’s the thing. Anyone who thinks Taylor Swift isn’t good for the girl cause has to be crazy, because any woman who’s dominating the charts, the creative director of her own empire, and made whatever millions of dollars last year is only lifting us up. Killing it. And she’s super-creative, an amazing role model, beautiful.
Also, she’s just slightly obsessed with Drake.
Once I spent, like, honestly a week of trying to figure out the chronology of all of Drake’s ex-girlfriends online. It was the saddest week of my life — I was on websites that I’d never even heard of before, like videobitches.org. I had a real moment with him, and it wasn’t reciprocated. But if I run into him now, I’m gonna be nice.
It wouldn’t be her first rodeo with a rapper? Not only is Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino in the new season. Her old boyfriend from summer camp was also quite the MC. He even gave her a mixtape.
He only had one of his own tracks; the rest of it was, like, De La Soul. He was a big freestyler, and he performed in a mechanic suit with another guy who also wore a mechanic suit. He was actually awesome.
Not to mention, the show has a pretty decently-hipster soundtrack, complete with a new track from Santigold, aptly titled, “Girls.” Via Pitchfork:
The casual, triumphant clip feels like a joyous victory lap for the show and for girls everywhere: the camera jumps between women and girls across New York city as they lip-sync the lyrics, having the time of their lives.
