HBO Girl's Volume 2 Soundtrack

Lena Dunham is all the rage these day, and with being the star and creator of the quirky and indie comedic HBO masterpiece: Girls, it is quite warranted. Dunham took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy and Girls also won for Best TV Comedy.

There is not another show on television quite like Girls. Dunham tapped into a very specific space and boy, does she move in it oh so well. Aside from her unique writing and genuine humor that pushes the envelope while being a pretty damn perfect depiction of what 20-something college-grads trying to find themselves experience in our society today.Girls is also known for some kickass tunes. In case you need a refresher, Volume 1 included songs from Robyn, The Troggs, The Vaccines, Fleet Foxes, Lia Ices, Belle & Sebastian, Oh Land, and how can anyone forget: Icona Pop, among others.

Controversy Surrounds Lena Dunham's Untouched Vogue Photos

Although Lena Dunham looks beautiful on the February cover of Vogue, editor-in-chief of the feminist blog Jezebel, Jessica Coen, offered up $10,000 for the untouched photos of Dunham. Coen’s reasoning behind wanting the photos is to show how Vogue digitally alters their photos. Coen explained herself on ablog post on Jezebel, “Her body is real. She is real. And for as lovely as the Vogue pictures are, they’re probably not terribly real.”

Coen didn’t want the photos, shot by Annie Leibovitz, just to show how Dunham really looks without being digitally altered because as Coen wrote, “Our desire to see these images pre-Photoshop is not about seeing what Dunham herself ‘really’ looks like; we can see that every Sunday night or with a cursory Google search. She’s everywhere. We already know what her body looks like.” Coen’s point in wanting to release the photos was to show that Dunham didn’t need all the photoshopping that she claims Vogue does to actresses who appear in the magazine.

Girls Expand Dates of U.S. Tour

The San Francisco indie-pop, all-male foursome known as Girls will be expanding the dates for their U.S. tour. The band has quickly risen to concert headliner status after the unquestioned success of their debut album, Album, which is rife with the once stifled expressionism of band leader Christopher Owens, who spent his childhood with the controversial Children of God cult.

The “overflow of expression” that was released on Album continues with the music video for Girls’ latest single “Lust for Life.” After being pressured by their label to produce a “clean” music video, the group reacted to the pressure by making their own “Hardcore XXX Edit” which features, among other scenes, a man singing the lyrics to the song into another man’s penis as though it were a microphone. Shockingly, the band has revealed that this is a “cleaner” version of a video that they originally made to the label’s pressure.
