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”
Watching HBO’s Girls now is becoming kind of painful. It’s like kind of like Lena Dunham just doesn’t want her characters to ever succeed. Seriously, this season’s whole plot feels like it’s one step forward, two steps back for everyone.
Case in point: Marnie’s (Allison Williams) recent quarter life crisis where her latest gaffe was this horrible cover of Kanye West’s “Stronger.”
Yeah, she became that girl at the party and she doesn’t even seem drunk (full disclosure: I didn’t watch it yet. Will HBO On Demand it later tonight). It’s like second-hand embarrassed bad.
Dammit, Lena Dunham! Can anyone be happy on this show?!
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
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!
Three words: short, blonde and shaved. These were the hair trends this year rocking the celeb world. It’s kind of hard to tell who inspired who this year with all these similar and daring hair cuts. However, what I love about these celebrity do’s is that they can sometimes have meaning and inspiration behind them.
Here are 10 awesome celebrity hair makeovers:
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous makeovers, but this one has quite a bit of meaning behind it. The singer shaved a portion of her head in memory of Terry Richardson’s mom, Annie Lomax. Gaga tweeted a photo of her new hair with a special message to her friend.
2. CeCe Frey
CeCe Frey shocked “X-Factor” viewers when she debuted her new platinum blonde look. CeCe isn’t new to daring looks as she often paints leopard print spots on her face. Fierce!
3. Anne Hathaway
Bless Anne Hathaway’s soul. I fell in love with Anne Hathaway this summer because she was a total babe in The Dark Knight Rises. When I saw her with her pixie cut, courtesy of her role in the upcoming film Les Miserables, my heart was sent into flutters. She really can rock anything.
4. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus sent the twitterverse into a buzz of love-hate feuding with her new do. Despite what anyone says, I think it’s awesome that Miley’s new haircut was able to give her a lot of confidence.
5. Marina and the Diamonds
Marina and the Diamonds completely transformed her entire wardrobe for her new album, Electra Heart. In her video for “Fear and Loathing,” Marina is seen chopping off her thick, black hair and opting for a cute bob. The move was daring, but her transformation totally goes with the theme of her album.

Spoiler!! Katy Perry planned her Halloween costume early this year. The casual purple hoodie comprises the wardrobe element but once she gets a short brown wig, fast food (as a prop) and a wing woman to act as Selena Gomez, it’ll all come together.
Never Say Never (to attending a Justin Bieber concert even if you have the soul of a fat goth)

See? Take is from Lena Dunham (because she’s a genius) that Justin Bieber isn’t just for young and sprite teen girls (and Katy Perry) who all keep a poster of him on their ceiling. There’s a little Justin Bieber in everyone — even the black-cape-wearing, tattooed, wannabe goth who lives next door.

— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) October 4, 2012
Ever since we heard Ed Sheeran’s folksly cover of Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” we’ve been dying for him to serenade us with his sweet, sweet voice again. And Ellen always gets the luck, doesn’t she? The ginger-haired singer performed “Grade 8″ on the talk show for a select group of lucky audience members, basically telling each lady in the audience that their body is a ball point pen and their mind is his new best friend. Needless to say, they all went home and broke up with their boyfriends, professing to hunt down Ed Sheeran to MAKE HIM COMMIT.

There’s something different about Snooki in this photo… I guess motherhood means you just don’t have time to put on that extra layer of spider black mascara and giant falsies.
