From WNYC:

“[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.”

Yup. That’s what Lena Dunham had to say to Alec Baldwin about Rihanna, and guys, and duh. Lena Dunham is completely right, once again.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have a feeling that we’re going to be talking about Lena Dunham a lot this year. I think there’s lots of big, big things that are going to come about because of her and her very special mindset, and I’m excited.

  • I don’t know who she is or what she did to become famous, but I just fell in love with her. Such a smart lady.

  • I have a mad girl crush on her.. (Lena).and of course she is dead right about Rihanna , but Rihanna is too stupid to realize the gravity of her choices… When Rihanna’s relashionship ends very badly, I pray her little fan club will choose to not follow in her bloody foot prints.

  • It’s funny, because Lena Dunham is someone who makes fun of victims of rape and murder via Twitter so I think Lena Dunham should shut the fuck up about being disappointed by people’s bad decisions. Also, I think Lena Dunham is very lucky that she doesn’t understand the toxic dynamics of an abusive relationship such as the one between Chris Brown and Rihanna and thinks leaving your abuser as easy as deleting a phone number. All in all, I think Lena Dunham should go back to writing her overrated show about a fairytale land where New York City is an overwhelmingly white city and stop talking about others. She gets on my fucking nerves so much.

    • I love Lena Dunham. Is her show ridiculous in the way it shows spoiled white girls living in the city? Yes. Is it wonderful? Yes. This bitch is doing what SHE wants, and I think that’s awesome. You know why everything she does is so controversial? It’s because she’s not pretty. I hate to say it, because I love her, but it’s true. If this were a below average looking male comedian, nobody would care what she says or what she does. In fact, Daniel Tosh got away with a shitload of over offensive jokes until I think he finally broke the camels back with that whole rape joke towards that girl. Lena Dunham wasn’t even making a joke about Rihanna. She was being serious, and she didn’t even bash Rihanna. So I think you are being extremely oversensitive.

      • Lena Dunham indeed does get more exposure because she is a woman in a man’s world, but I’m not being oversensitive. I just am calling out Dunham on her shit because she speaks like her shit doesn’t stink. She has got as much self-awareness as a goldfish in a fishbowl, and I am sick of people praising her when there are many talented women out there who don’t have her connections and therefore can’t succeed like she has.

      • Yes, @mireee. Even if people think “Girls” is somewhat entertaining, which I do, “Tiny Furniture” was a terrible indie-film. If that was the premise for “Girls”, it’s even more obvious how much help she’s had, that wasn’t deserved, based off of her film.

    • Miree you are completely right! I think the wider problem is that people idolize celebrities too much. Why should a singer be a role model? Why not a teacher, doctor, news anchor? Every second kid is focused on being a superstar and that’s why we end up with droves of tone deaf people trying out for American idol.

    • She also happened to attempt to get young people out to vote for Obama by comparing that to sex for the first time …

      And her book proposal was heavily criticized on Gawker.

      Of course, when looking at someone, always look at Twitter.

      “I’m mad about the way some stuff on earth is going and I expressed it by putting new hairstyles on the headshots in a Playbill with wite-out”

      “Everyone else’s routine is so impressive to me. Today I saw a woman carrying a thermos to work, almost jumped out of my skin with awe.”

      … and …

      “I know what it’s like to be pulled back from death and appreciate life more since I dropped my cell phone in the toilet and it still works”

      No, I’d say she isn’t smart. At all. She doesn’t appear charming. At all.

      What you see expressed in the above tweets is a type of person I loathe … the sittin’ in front of (whichever) bookstore pretending to be knowledgeable and having no *bleeping* clue. There is a bonus if there is a guitar involved.

  • So many people HATED Lena last year – but when you see or hear her interviewed, her sweetness comes through and you can’t help but know that, (a) she is a very smart cookie, (b) she is incredibly talented, and (c) she doesn’t take anything for granted – she knows how lucky she is. I love that she’s calling Rhianna out – that is bold! She even won over Howard Stern – he was prepared to hate her because she didn’t meet his ridiculous standards of beauty, but he fell in love with her show and they had a fantastic interview last week. This IS her year!

  • Rihanna is a woman with issues. She exhibits no common sense and will inevitably have another run-in with her loser boyfriend. Goof for Lena calling her out on her bullshit.

  • Yes, to bad she can’t do awesome things like create a show where it’s totes hilarious to have your boyfriend piss on you.

  • Unfortunately most of the really big things coming from Lena this year are her dumps. Hope someone picked up a case of industrial strength Draino.
