Clinton and Eltahawy made the list under the "activist" category, while Dunham made the "celebrities" list. While there are plenty of relatively apolitical Tweeps in the mix, Time made sure to make Pete Souza, the president's photographer, one of the 10 honored in the arts and photography list. Below the page break you'll see the Souza tweet they chose, along with the picture of President Obama that accompanied it, as well as the magazine's state reason for why they like Souza's feed:
If your daughter was an actress doing a sex scene in a movie or television show, would you want to watch?
On the CBS Late Show Thursday, Girls star Lena Dunham said that not only is NBC's Brian Williams often on the set for the filming of this sex-packed HBO program, the cast jokes about having a "BriWi-cam" on him to gauge his reactions to his daughter Allison's sex scenes (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Lena Dunham, famous for her awful sex scenes and pro-Obama ad which likened voting to losing your virginity is being hailed as one of Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year.”
Glamour declared the 26 year old was “immensely likable” and a “voice of her generation.” Reporter Emma Rosenblum couldn’t quite write the story without an obsessive fangirl mentality. “She [Dunham] become one of the most powerful women in Hollywood since the April premiere of her show, which she—deep breath—created, stars in, and also directs,” Rosenblum wrote.
The other day, a study came out suggesting that the advertising being released by President Obama's re-election team is actually having the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of firing up his former 2008 voters to cast their ballots again for him, the ads that Obama's people are putting out are actually firing up former John McCain voters to turn out against Obama.
It's tough to argue with that conclusion after having viewed the campaign's latest spot, a dopey attempt at humor featuring little-known hipster actress Lena Dunham comparing voting for Obama to having sex.
After ten awkward and unpleasant episodes, the first season of HBO’s critically acclaimed show ‘Girls’ has mercifully come to an end. Each week upped the ante with graphic sex, inappropriate innuendo, frequent depictions of masturbation, and even agoldenshower. Basically what we’ve cometoexpect from premium cable networks.
The season finale was no exception. In her weeklyrecap, Crystal Bell of HuffPost Entertainment detailed the storyline that featured an impromptu wedding and frank discussions of STD's. Two characters who barely knew each other decided to tie the knot. In yet another example of monogamygonewrong in mainstream media culture, the unemployed bride had ulterior motives.
Lena Dunham’s new show, “Girls” debuted April 15 on HBO, and predictably it’s the new media darling for its awkward “honesty” and incredibly feminist plot. “Girls” is all about the woes and misery of idle youth and post-collegiate despair, and if Dunham really is “the voice of a generation,” as she claimed in the pilot (while high on drugs) then our future looks bleak.
In 30 minutes “Girls” managed to casually reference abortions, show graphic nudity and sex scenes and depict characters getting high on opium. Upcoming episodes will include sexually transmitted diseases and a masturbation scene (starring Allison Williams, daughter of NBC News’ Brian Williams – Dad must be so proud!).
