Lena Dunham may not be as talented a dancer as Maddie Ziegler but the Girls star puts on an oddly fascinating show as only she can.

Dunham performed an interpretative dance to “Chandelier” while Sia (or someone pretending to be her) sang face down on a bed. Previously, Ziegler recreated her stunning dance moves in the video for a live performance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show while Sia stood in a corner with her face away from the audience.

The Aussie singer recently told Dazed that she planned on “different types of people” to wear the platinum blonde bob wig for live performances. Let’s just be thankful that Lena wasn’t naked like every Girls episode for her appearance on The Late Show. Watch Lena try to channel Maddie below. It’s definitely a sight to behold.

Lena Dunham broke her Saturday Night Live cherry last night and did a respectable job doing so. The show wasn’t filled with wall-to-wall hilarity throughout, but there were definitely some memorable highlights.

My favorite skits featuring the Girls actress included the Scandal spoof, “Oooh Child” car sing-a-long and a biblical themed sketch based on her HBO show. Dunham played the original girl but with her signature 20-something Brooklyn angst. The Katt Williams segment was a bust, but Lena’s Liza Minelli impersonation saved it somewhat. Check out all her skits below along with performances by musical guest The National.

Archie Comics just got a little more gay-friendly. Back in 2012, the publication introduced Riverdale’s first gay teen character, Kevin Keller and now they’ve hired openly-gay Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa as their first ever Chief Creative Officer. Aguirre-Sacasa is a playwright, screenwriter, and comic book writer best known for his work for Marvel Comics and for the television series Glee and Big Love. He recently wrapped the zombie miniseries Afterlife with Archie.

“I just love the characters. I started reading Archie comics when I was a kid, and I’ve just kind of…never stopped. I mean, there was definitely something appealing about how idyllic Riverdale was, and how ‘wholesome’ all the kids were/are — much more so than me and my friends — but I always had a sense: There’s depth and darkness there, too. And an edge, especially in the older stories. I guess I always wondered what was happening between the panels.” – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

As part of his new duties, Roberto is penning a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch series. In addition, he was instrumental in bringing Lena Dunham to the fold. The Girls creator has been tapped to write a four-issue Archie miniseries scheduled for 2015. Reportedly, Dunahm’s story will follow Archie and the gang when they run into a new reality show filming in Riverdale. Check out the first illustration below.

“I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that l kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang,” Lena Dunham said in a press release. “It has so much cultural significance but also so much personal significance, and to get to play with these beloved characters is a wild creative opportunity.”

Lena Dunham Heads To Saturday Night Live

In: Donovan, TV Shows

On March 8, Lena Dunham makes her Saturday Night Live debut. I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Perhaps SNL’s hilarious Girls parody featuring Tina Fey is why I’m confused. Remember Fey playing Blerta, the older ‘girl’ from Albania? Epic. I wonder if the NBC show will do another spoof now that they have Lena at their disposal.

Joining Dunham as the night’s musical guests are The National who are also breaking their SNL cherry that night. The group snagged a 2014 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album. Their documentary Mistaken For Strangers hits theaters during the last week of March. Relive Fey’s Girls spoof below.

HBO Renews Girls For Fourth Season

If you can’t imagine life without seeing Lena Dunham’s titties on your television, you’re in luck. Even without airing an episode, HBO revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that they’ve greenlit Girls for a fourth season. I’m hoping their bullish decision is based on the quality of upcoming episodes. IMHO, it suffered a sophomore slump. Meanwhile, the network announced Boardwalk Empire would end after its fifth season this Fall.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised with the network’s decision to renew Girls. Despite mediocre ratings, the “comedy” garners plenty of press and watercooler buzz. To boot, it’s earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Just like Sex and the City, plenty of press show up for the Girls premiere party. Everyone wants to see what the girls are wearing. Much like their SATC counterparts, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke and Dunham, whether intentional or not, tend to dress like their on-screen personas. Williams is the stunning ingenue with Dunham usually in an unflattering ensemble. Check out what they wore for this year’s premiere below, along with the previous two years. Sound off on which girl has the best style in the comments section.

Check Out Girls’ Season 3 Trailer

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Technically, Girls is a comedy. Based on last season though, if you tuned in looking for laughs, you would’ve been sadly disappointed. The comedic moments were few and far in between. Am I alone in thinking Lena Dunham took it too dark and depressing? Hopefully, Dunham and her writers were in a better mood this year. Otherwise, I’m permanently breaking up with the HBO show.

In the newly-released trailer, Hannah (Dunham) is shacking up with Adam (Adam Driver) once again. Given the fact Christopher Abbott left the show, poor Marnie (Allison Williams) is toughing it out alone. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is still being Jessa, while Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky) are still driving each other crazy. If that wasn’t enough, Shosanna takes a page from Miley’s book and twerks her little heart out on some poor dead person’s tombstone. Classic Shos ;)

This year, we get a temporary change of scenery. As with most NYC-based shows like Gossip Girl and Sex and the City, the requisite trip to the Hamptons takes place. Check out the trailer below.

Taking a page from the Sex and the City gals, Lena Dunham takes her hipster Brooklyn crew to the swanky Hamptons when the critically-acclaimed series returns. HBO recently released a new behind-the-scenes featurette which gives a preview of the third season. Girls returns on Sunday, January 12.

Base on the clip, we learn Hannah and Adam are happily together (for now). On the flipside, Marnie is heartbroken because Christopher Abbott left the show due to creative reasons taking his alter ego Charlie with him. As far as the other girls, Jessa is dealing with issues (quel surpris) and Shoshanna returns with her signature quirky hairstyles. For all you Elijah fans, Andrew Rannells is back on the HBO series. Hells yah!!! Check out the revealing featurette below.

Last issue, Time Magazine put same-sex marriage front and center on their cover. This time around they look to Jennifer Lawrence and six others to grace their annual 100 Most Influential issue. From artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons, the issue highlights the most influential people in the world. Each person is profiled by an equally luminary voice. In Lawrence’s case, it’s Academy Award winning actress Jodie Foster.

“You’ll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be.” – Jodie Foster

Photographer Mark Seliger snapped Lawrence for one of seven collectible covers. Gracing their own cover are Jay-Z (artist and entrepreneur), Elon Musk (SpaceX and Tesla founder), Li Na (tennis champion), Aamir Khan (film star and activist), Rand Paul (U.S. Senator) and 15-year-old activist Malala Yousafzai. Check out their covers below, along with some of my favorite entertainment stars included on the Time 100 list.
