HBO’s Girls aired his second season finale on Sunday night with the reassurance of yes, Hannah Horvath will be back to terrorize Brooklyn once again.
We all love how Girls attempts to portray how real women look, sound and act like. It’s not perfect but it does try to depict a lot of the issues young females face when trying to settle down in their careers and relationships. It shows the expectations of females, and how hard it can be to live up to your parents expectations, and more of all the expectations young women have for themselves.
The latter is most evident in the the show’s protagonist, Hannah Horvath(as played by the show’s creator/writer Lena Dunham). While she wants everyone to think she has it all figured out (in terms of what she wants from men, herself, and her career), realistically Hannah is the one most lost.
Sometimes Hannah says and does things that really make us question her sanity. She has a tendency to go on a crazy downward spiral when things confuse her or don’t go her way. She never seems to know what she wants, and has had really unhealthy reactions to things over the course of the shows two seasons. Basically, she has us scratching our heads and going, “WTF?” way too often.
HERE ARE THE 12 BIGGEST “WTF, HANNAH” MOMENTS OF HBO’S GIRLS
1) She spends a season chasing Adam only to not want to date him after all
2) That time she thought murder was sexy
3) When She bares her heart to someone she’s known for a day
4) When she thought she was going to get an STI from “the stuff that gets on the sides”
Good try, girls! Really, I do mean it. While some of you didn’t really put any effort into it, I do appreciate those who tried to capture Schwarzenegger’s gravitas and manliness. Brava!
We all have those nights. Those very, very blurry nights where you wake up in the same clothes you went to sleep in and when you complete the phone, wallet and keys check, at least one of the three is missing.
Usually, you can gather the troops and piece together enough of the previous night’s adventures to find whatever it is your looking for. And sometimes, the conversations get equally confusing and hilarious.
Local Empire decided to summarize the beginnings of these conversations in their most recent video, “Phone Girl.” Every girl can admit that they have said at least one of the things in this video. If you haven’t, you’re lying (or you have one of those really cute cross-body phone purses).

Ever wonder what Lena Dunham’s audition tape would look like if she was casted in the Oscar-nominated film, “Zero Dark Thirty?” Well, wonder no more!
In this spoof, New York comedian Chelsea Davison is spot on with her impression of Lena Dunham’s self-absorbed Girls character Hannah. Chelsea gives us a glimpse into what the audition tape could’ve looked like. From strip teases to cupcakes, this impersonation is too funny and dare I say:
Davison nails all of Dunham’s (well I guess Hannah’s) quirks. Too bad Lena didn’t audition for the role. I mean sure Jessica Chastain did a pretty kick-ass job playing a CIA agent, but imagine if Lena’s character Hannah had auditioned. The film about Osama bin Laden’s capture would’ve been totes different. Hey, I’d watch it!
Being a girl is hard. Learning proper haircare is is a tedious task full of fails and almost successes.
Aspiring YouTube guru, Tori Locklear, learned the hard way when she burned her hair off trying to style her hair with a curling iron. Learn from Tori, girls, and make sure you curler isn’t set to high heat.
Now that Gossip Girl is over, are you wondering where you’ll get your weekly T.V. fashion fix? The end of Gossip Girl has left a big fashion hole in the land of television so we’ll be going through a couple of options for you to try. Some of these shows might fill the void, but only time will tell.
The Carrie Diaries
This is the most likely successor to fill the space Gossip Girl has left on our T.V. schedules. Probably because Gossip Girl was the show that succeeded the fashionable and iconic Sex and the City. So with The Carrie Diaries being a prequel to SATC, this new show has all the elements of being your new T.V. fashion fix. As viewers we’ll get to witness the young Carrie Bradshaw (played by the excellent AnnaSophia Robb) discover her voice and love of fashion and we’ll get to see how she became the style icon that we know and love (i.e. Sarah Jessica Parker).
Pros: Fun 80s fashion and a glimpse of a wilder, funkier, and grittier New York City that is long gone. Plus Carrie Bradshaw is back in our lives!
Cons: NYC = fashion and the city was a character in itself for SATC and Gossip Girl but The Carrie Diaries only partially takes place in NYC. Plus being stuck in the 80s means less chances for modern and fashion forward moments.
The Beverly Hills 90210 reboot has somewhat lived in the shadows of Gossip Girl. The original 90210 was a major fashion fix in the 90s, making the Californian ZIP Code the most fashionably coveted place to live during its early run on television. The show put sunny Hollywood Californian style on the map but in the fashion world the West Coast is not actually the Best Coast. NYC is couture while L.A. is Hollywood glam. The new 90210 has all the elements of taking the fashion reigns from Gossip Girl but those are quite big shoes to fill and the window for viewers to get on board on already established show is small (you’re going to have to play a lot of catch-up).
Pros: Its young, beautiful, and stylish cast. Plus the show’s a fashion fix legacy (never forget the amazing shoulder pads of Brenda, Kelly, and Donna).
Cons: The shadow from Gossip Girl still looms, while The O.C. set the standard high for young Californian style in the new Millennium.

A bit of an oldie, but you wouldn’t expect this all-girls prep school choir do a killer cover of Dr. Dre’s “Bitches Ain’t Shit.”
Looking dressed and just about ready to go play some tennis at the country club, it’s hard to believe how these girls look so calm and collected while busting out a pretty dope-ass cover.
The guys from Allstar Weekend suffer from a serious disability – LA-D-D. That’s a disease where a guy can’t keep focused on one girl. The boys discuss what it’s like living with this disability.
It’s hard to believe Allstar Weekend would have lady troubles. Even though they have thousands of girls willing to beat each other with flat-irons for a date with one of them. The guys told us about the girl that inspired their new video for Blame It On September.
A Mexican newspaper report on this matter has been roughly translated by Uproxx:
The black market of the Internet to get tickets for the concert of Justin Bieber on the Internet has reached the point of offering the first sex in exchange for a concert ticket, as published by the portal sdpnoticias.com.
Real scenes of hysteria were posted on YouTube by girls who could not get a ticket. Now things have gone to another level. According to that reported by the newspaper El Norte, a girl has even offered its first time in exchange for a ticket to see the Canadian artist.
“My virginity for a ticket to Justin Bieber, urgeee me,” wrote a user’s social network Facebook.
In addition, some “vivales” have used to seek to change tickets in exchange for the company of a girl, the same newspaper reported.
Below is a TV report of crazy Mexican girls crying after they couldn’t get tickets. This is Biebermania on a new level.
“He’s an extraordinary man,” Martin says of his son to Sky News, “He’s doing well, we pray for him. If he had cancer, how would you treat him? This disease of addiction is a form of cancer. You have to have an equal measure of concern and love and lift him up.”
With all do respect to Martin, we wouldn’t call Charlie’s disease the equivalent of cancer. The guy brought this on himself because of an addiction to sluts, booze and drugs. Not exactly the equivalent of cells growing out of control in your body.
Several young girls fainted and were trampled by a crowd of about 5,000, reports New Zealand Herald. Paramedics were forced to deal with a huge crowd of unruly girls in order to help the injured. All of those who suffered injuries were treated at the scene.
The free concert was cancelled after concerns over further injuries. Many of the fans had slept there overnight for Bieber’s only Australian gig, due to be held at 7.40am (AEST).
Beibers has tweeted that he is “just as disappointed as everyone else.”
“I woke up this morning to the police cancelling the show for safety reasons.”
“I love my fans … I love it here in Australia … and I want to sing.”
