Lena Dunham appeared on Alec Baldwin’s podcast Here’s The Thing this week and discussed everything from her favourite childhood shows (Canada’s Under the Umbrella Tree made the list), how Lena moved from theatre to TV writing and her thoughts on pop star Rihanna.
Dunham, whose HBO show GIRLS has been an overnight phenomenon, winning Lena two Golden Globes at this year’s ceremony, spoke out on the pop star, admitting that Rihanna’s private life has impacted Dunham’s feelings towards the singer’s music. Dunham explains,
“[Being a role model] is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy. She’s talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.”
Me too, Lena. Me too.Tweet
