    Lena Dunham may be 28 years old, but she's wise beyond her years.

    To promote her forthcoming memoir, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned," the creator and star of HBO's Girls answered fans' questions in a series of 12 YouTube videos. In the clips, Dunham addressed topics ranging from from feminism to how to handle unfunny friends.

    Asked about how she learned to love the skin she's in, Dunham replied, "I went through all of college dressing like a lunatic, wearing neon and raving around and secretly hating myself. I know it's a really, really complicated thing because you sort of want to project the confidence that you don't have to sort of beat people to the punch and critique yourself before they can critique you." The two-time Golden Globe winner continued, "For me, confidence comes from feeling happy with my habits, feeling like I can be proud of my life, feeling like, 'I read a book this week, I ate food that I knew was going to give me energy, I slept enough and I know that I am the best version of myself that I can be.' And that doesn't mean losing 30 lbs. That means taking care of myself and treating myself like precious cargo."

    "I've been a bunch of different weights, and being temporarily 135 lbs., I was so obsessed with food," Dunham admitted. "I was so obsessed with, like, counting almonds that I don't think I got laid that entire time, whereas when I was at my biggest and running around Brooklyn in a romper, it was raining men."

    Dunham, who has been dating fun.'s Jack Antonoff since 2012, discussed bad sex.

    In fact, it wasn't until a few years ago that Dunham asserted herself in the bedroom.

    "I don't think I even thought about whether I was enjoying sex until I was, like, 25, because I was so worried about whether other people were enjoying sex with me that it never would have occurred to me that it was an act I was supposed to receive any pleasure from," the author said. "And then what I realized was having good sex takes two people who want to make each other feel good. There isn't a person who's 'good at sex' because it's an alchemy, it's a thing that happens between two people."

    Michael B. Jordan, The Fantastic Four’s Human Torch, has release his directorial debut, a video created in conjunction with AXE. The video unveils the source behind all temptation by going behind-the-scenes of the “AXE Temptation Lab,” where they have discovered the Temptation Gland.

    “I thrive off collaboration and love having a hand in various aspects of a project, so directing was a natural extension of my career,” said Jordan. “Working with AXE to help them launch the Gold Temptation line and bring the ‘AXE Temptation Lab’ to life was a great opportunity to showcase my directing chops and have a little fun while I was at it.”

    During the “AXE Summer of Temptation” guys and girls interacted with #TemptationTuesday and opened up about what truly tempts them. Feedback revealed 64 percent of people say the color red makes anything more tempting and, perhaps more interesting to readers, 80 percent of TV and film viewers are tempted to read a spoiler alert before watching the corresponding episode or movie. Findings such as these served as the inspiration behind the Temptation Lab video and scenarios depicted in the content.

    Check out Jordan’s video below:

    The “AXE Summer of Temptation” was launched in conjunction with the brand’s first flanker fragrance, AXE Gold Temptation. As part of the Temptation Line, AXE Gold Temptation is based off of the successful core formulation of the brand’s top selling global fragrance, AXE Dark Temptation.

    It’s been a few years since Joanna Newsom last released an album — 2010′s triple-album Have One on Me, for those keeping track — but it’s not like she hasn’t been busy. In fact, she’ll be starring in Inherent Vice, the new Paul Thomas Anderson-directed film based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Newsom’s character in the film is Sortilège, an “earth-goddess-like” character who acts as the narrator for the film. Hmmm… Newsom as an “earth goddess.” Yeah, we can see it.

    Inherent Vice — which is set in the 1970s and is described as a “stoner detective film” by the New York Times— is also stars Joaquin Phoenix, who plays a Southern California detective who investigates a conspiracy, plus Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short and Jena Malone. The film debuts Oct. 4 at the New York Film Festival, which runs from today to Oct. 12.


    Making a film debut in a Paul Thomas Anderson adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel is audacious. It feels like it's been ages since she last released music, though

    In this nerve-ratcheting haunted house tale by way of Roman Polanski's "Repulsion," Essie Davis gives a breakthrough performance as a woman struggling to cope with-- and even love -- her disturbed six-year-old son.

    What begins as a gloomy mother-son drama with etchings of "We Need to Talk About Kevin" goes horrifically bat-shit after he opens a creepy children's book portending doom and bloodshed for both of them. And that's all I'll say.

    Watch the official US trailer below. This 2014 Sundance knockout most recently picked up a bevy of prizes at Fantastic Fest.

    Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic is coming soon, whether fans like it or not, and the network is beginning to ramp up promotion for the TV movie.

    A brief trailer featuring lead actress Alexandra Shipp aired this week, showing the 23-year-old dressed in Aaliyah’s classic baggy jeans and crop-top outfit, showing off some of her dance moves.

    Actress/singer Zendaya was originally set to play Aaaliyah in the biopic, but she dropped out, explaining that she wasn’t comfortable with the production.

    “I just felt the project wasn’t 100 percent there. I feel [that] production wise everything just felt a little rushed,” she told MTV News back in June. “And I think because she’s someone I admire and I love so much, it can’t be done halfway, or not to the standards I think it should be done at, so I just decided not to do it.”

    “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B” debuts on Lifetime on Saturday, November 15.

    That Olivia Pope really ignited something. Since her debut on ABC April 5, 2012, television hasn’t been the same. And, now, the Kerry Washington icon-turning vehicle is the lead-in for Shondaland’s latest coup, How To Get Away with Murder, starring Viola Davis as law professor and legal mastermind Annalise Keating.
    Talk about a Thursday night Scandal! Remember the last time network television ran two back-to-back dramatic series starring black actresses produced by a black woman in primetime? Big tip: it has never happened. Earlier this year, Teresa Wiltz asked “Does this mean that 2014 is the year of the black woman on TV?” in her appropriately titled OZY piece “The Year of Black Women on TV.”

    If ABC is answering the question, the response could very well be a resounding “yes.” Ask folks like New York Times writer Alessandra Stanley, who began her ill-advised September 18 post-racial offering “Wrought in Rhimes’s Image” circling around the unprecedented event with “When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called ‘How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman,’” and the resistance is very clear.

    Oh never mind that Murder, like almost every other series on TV, even in this great age of black female engagement, was created by, gasp, another white male. The only difference here is that its acknowledged star is a black woman and, of course, that other “angry” black woman co-produces it. But who has time for those pesky facts?

    True to character in a good way, other networks have attempted to duplicate Scandal’s success, in hopes of striking the ratings gold ABC has been mining. NBC tried with Meagan Good and Deception. CBS appears to have fared slightly better with this past summer’s Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi series Extant, starring trailblazing Oscar winner Halle Berry. BET even got in on the action with Gabrielle Union as a capably problematic cable news star in Being Mary Jane. Angela Bassett didn’t star in FOX’s third season of American Horror Story: Coven, but she acted out enough to garner an Emmy nom. Nicole Beharie co-stars in last year’s breakout hit Sleepy Hollow on Fox that recently returned for sophomore duty. So why wouldn’t ABC take a page from its own game-changing playbook and not do it again with Murder and Rhimes, who still amazingly has Grey’s Anatomy on the air in what seems like its three-thousandth season?

    Being in a historic moment doesn’t guarantee television success, however. Nor maxim cultural impact. Ultimate fixer Olivia Pope may be her lead-in, but that doesn’t mean that Davis’s Keating is working with the same ammo. Unlike Washington’s Pope, who has amazingly replaced Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw as television’s ultimate fashion orgasm, Davis is not quite the center of attention her top billing suggests. Keating’s eager minions, in contrast to Pope’s gladiators, work hard to overshadow her in the show’s debut. Whereas Olivia Pope struck awe, Keating appears to strike dread, and not in a particularly noble way. One young man in particular, Wes Gibbins, played by Alfred Enoch, recognizable from his ka-chinging Harry Potter role as Dean Thomas, rivals Davis in screen time, arguably banking even more scenes than she does. While it may be a win for young black male actors, Enoch isn’t helping ABC stick to the “black woman, hear me roar” script.

    Even when Washington is not on the screen in Scandal, she is forever looming. Too often, Murder evokes an ensemble feel, not that “we can’t really go without Davis” promise that many articles, even Stanley’s unfortunate one, have proposed. Despite her many accomplishments, which include two Tonys, Davis is best known for her “You is kind. You is smart. You is important,” quotable from her Oscar-nominated role (her second actually following Doubt) as maid Aibileen Clark from 2011’s much-side-eyed (from this half of the racial divide at least) film The Help that nabbed her co-star Octavia Spencer that Oscar as the sassified maid Minny with a penchant for baking one unforgettable pie. Murder is not as bad as Disney promoting The Help as the stories of the black maids but not quite admitting that those stories were filtered through the white female protagonist. But it’s not as good as Davis really being the estrogen center of it all.

    Last season, Scandal could have conceivably ended with Olivia and Jake jetting off to sandy paradise, leaving Fitz behind to be there emotionally for his wife and kids after losing their son, not to mention run a country. ABC has been so hushed about the season premiere that it’s hard to know if the thrill is back at full throttle. For Davis, Kerry Washington’s lead could be a blessing or a curse. Olivia Pope’s white coat is a hard act to follow. For history’s sake, let’s hope Analise Keating has more than that red leather outfit in her closet. Because we certainly need more “bad ass sistas” to join the party.

    As you'll see, Sam's back scars (from flogging) are shown pretty often. Which means he actually spends the most time out of anyone in the makeup chair. "Sam has the unfortunate task of having a prosthetic back applied every time his 'taps aff!' as the Scots would say," makeup supervisor Kendrick explains. (‘Taps off' means to take your top off in Glasgow, by the way.) "The whole process for Jamie's back scars and many other scars is 2 hours 30 mins and it takes three of us to do. There are two large prosthetic pieces to apply and some smaller ones, and every single section needs to be glued onto Sam's skin, blended and coloured up. However the upside of having scars on, is getting the scars off at the end of the shooting day, this takes roughly 45 mins with oils and lavender flannels, Sam usually enjoys this process!" Somehow we can't feel too sorry for the makeup artists either…

    The 34-year-old native Scotsman admits he was "desperate" to get cast on Outlander, in part because of executive producer Ronald D. Moore's work on Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica, and he even managed to get some time on the lunch break during his screen test to talk to Moore about Captain Kirk. Heughan is also obsessed with another little time travel franchise known as Back to the Future. "I think that is one of the best trilogies ever made," he told us, and Caitriona added, "Sam tries to talk about it every day, if he can."


    Producer Ronald D. Moore admits that finding Sam Heughan for Jamie, and Catriona Balfe for Claire, did not go as expected. "At the outset, I told everyone that we would find Claire first and then Jamie would be the last one cast, and of course it was exactly the opposite," Moore tells us. "It was really hard to find Claire. Sam came in really early in the process and he was literally the first one we cast. We saw the tape and we were like, 'Oh my god, there he is. Let's snatch him up now.' And then Claire just took a long time. A lot of actresses, a lot of tape, looking for really ineffable qualities. She had to be smart, she had to have a strength of character, and really, she had to be someone that you could watch think on camera. But then suddenly Caitriona's tape came in and we had that same light-bulb moment."

    "There's this group, The Outlander Bakers," Catriona tells us, "and I do not know how they do this, but we shoot in the most remote locations up in the middle of mountains in the highlands. And they will find us and they will bring us not only amazing cakes and cookies but gluten-free stuff. It's quite amazing." And apparently they take orders! "Sam has been very smart about it," Catriona says with a laugh. "He just sort of tweets his love of all things peanut butter and there it arrives!"

    "All of our actors wear their kilts just a bit differently from each other," Outlander's costumer Terry Dresbach tells us. "They personalize them and make them very much their own. We are talking about 12 yards of fabric that has to be belted and tucked by each actor, and they have developed their own ways of wearing them that belongs very much to them. It is incredibly important that they FEEL like their character, and helping them to find that place is an essential part of our job."


    Are you guys ready for tomorrow? I'm getting Claire level drunk to cope with it being the last episode for 7 months.

    20-Somethings Still Scream: A Review of the Nick Jonas Concert

    Just in case you’re not on the Radio Disney mailing list, or haven’t had the unfortunate fate of hearing me whimper in despair for the past year, I’ll catch you up: The Jonas Brothers are no more (we’re going to skip right over the discussion about me being way too old to be affected by this). The reason is that Nick Jonas, the youngest, couldn’t bear the constraints of his squeaky clean sugar mold any longer, and, like the Hulk, busted out and tasted an even sweeter freedom. I’m still kind of mad, but this has not stopped me from giving him all my money, so when I heard he was coming to San Francisco, I promptly bought a ticket.

    Historically, there are a few routes for teen heartthrobs to take once they grow out of their sugar-pop shell. A) Disappearance, in which their female fandom is left in despair for a decade or more, until a greyed, sleepy version of the band reunites to the hysteria of thousands of mom-haircuts in sparkle tops; B) Growth, in which the heartthrob evolves musically, broadening his fanbase and growing a permanent five o’clock shadow; and C) Alienation, in which the heartthrob makes terrible decision after terrible decision until the only fans he has left can arguably be considered clinically insane.


    Naturally, Nick has taken Avenue B. He’s been in the business since pre-pubescence, and after a decade has seemed to figure out how to appeal to his fanbase at any stage of his career. He’s taken on heavier topics, opted for a stripped down stage show, and to be honest, none of that matters as much as the fact that he started weightlifting and saying the F word. There’s just something about witnessing a previously zipped-up and polished pop star say “Fuck it,” literally, and behaving in an unfiltered fashion. It’s like hearing your grandma swear for the first time. It’s magnificent.

    And his fans have changed too, kind of. They make fewer signs and write on their faces less. They order from the bar. They dress with a youthful sexiness fitting of twenty year olds that I’ve never been able to pull off (this isn’t false modesty, I wore an outfit from Ann Taylor). The number of dads at this most recent show has dropped considerably, replaced with boyfriends, whom, despite their wilting girlfriends surging toward Nick Jonas like the tide to the moon, are relatively upbeat, most likely because they’ll surely get laid for the favor.

    They do, however, still scream. This is somewhat rectified by the fact that there is a mere fraction of screaming fans allowed in the venue as the arena tours of past. But it bursts forth, for sometimes no reason, and without warning. And it’s the literal worst.

    And that brings me to the review of the actual show. Assuming I haven’t lost you all already, I’m going to keep it short and sweet, so here it is, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:

    The Good:

    1. The venue was very intimate. I got to pretend I was apathetic about the whole thing and stand in the back near the bar (Dad-town), but could still see everything, and notice the details that normally only the first few rows absorb, like how Nick Jonas unironically bites his bottom lip as only wildly attractive famous white guys can manage.

    2. The mashups. A setlist that consists of 90% new music gets unengaging real fast. Thrilling little surprises like Sam Smith snippets were peppered throughout the entire show, making a song you’d normally forget as soon as the next starts stand out.

    3. This little dancey thing.

      Nick takes himself pretty seriously and that means always looking like he’s working through a really tough crossword puzzle. The lighthearted things are like spotting a unicorn.

    4. The signature falsetto voice. It’s like adult Nick Jonas ate kid Nick Jonas, but kid Nick Jonas refuses to be upstaged, and so he fights through at the end of a song when adult Nick Jonas gets tired.

    She’ll be old enough to run for president in 2052.

    Chelsea Clinton gave birth to a baby girl Friday night, tweeting out the happy news early Saturday morning.

    “Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky,” she tweeted.

    Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky.
    — Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) September 27, 2014

    MORE AFTER THE CUT Bill and Hillary Clinton both retweeted the loving message.

    Clinton, 34, had waited to find out the sex of her baby until she gave birth because, “There are so few mysteries in life… in which any answer is a happy one,” she told CNN in September.

    “My husband and I decided we would enjoy this mystery for, you know, the nine-plus months that we were granted,” Clinton said.

    “And we are eager to find out what God will have given us.”

    Chelsea is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s only child and the new arrival is their only grandchild.

    There had been hints the bun would soon be leaving the oven.

    “I can’t wait. We’re on watch now,” Bill — who must have been breaking out the cigars when he got the good news — said to CNN on Sunday.

    “I hope by the first of October I’ll be a grandfather.”

    President Obama had even gotten in on the fun, jokingly offering his motorcade to Chelsea at a Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City on Tuesday.

    “I was just discussing with President Clinton that if Chelsea begins delivery while I’m speaking, she has my motorcade and will be able to navigate traffic,” he said, ABC reported.

    Chelsea announced her pregnancy in April at the Lower East Side Girls Club.

    It was unclear where Chelsea gave birth, but she spent the week in New York City for a climate change summit at the UN General Assembly.

    She and her hedge fund manager hubby Marc Mezvinsky, the son of two former members of Congress, live in a $9.25 million apartment on Madison Square Park.

    Chelsea left her $600,000-per-year NBC News gig to focus on motherhood in late August, telling People Magazine that she was quitting “to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation … as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child.”

    The new grandmother, former first lady and former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is widely believed to be preparing for a 2016 presidential bid.

    The infant Charlotte will pass the minimum age of 35 in time for the 2052 presidential elections.

    Earlier this week, Kylie – now famous enough to drop the Minogue surname – confessed to anxieties about her return to live performance. You can’t help wondering what someone who has been at the top of pop for more than 25 years can possibly have to fear. That her mammoth Kiss Me Once European tour only includes one night in Lithuania? Or that one of the confetti cannons employed on this opening night will malfunction and blast her into the Mersey? In fact, the only hint of a departure from the script comes when the singer misses a vocal cue and instantly improvises: “How do you feel, Liverpool?”

    Liverpool feels great, because the star is whisking them to the biggest disco in town, complete with dancers in foam robot outfits, lasers and trapdoors. One minute, Kylie’s singing in a hot tub and emerging wearing a little red heart; the next, she reappears sporting what looks like a weather vane on her head.

    The show’s sex factor – in the form of leather boots and nearly-nude male dancers – is delivered with an eyebrow raised knowingly at the ludicrousness of it all. “Let me see you Sexercise!” yells Kylie, bouncing on a gym ball and sounding as if she’s just been employed by a shopping channel to sell a particularly painful-looking fitness contraption.

    However over the top it gets, the show is minimal enough to focus the attention on her charisma and music. There are genuinely great records (Spinning Around, Slow, Can’t Get You Out of My Head), under-heralded stompers (the Abba-esque Your Disco Needs You), and she’s not too snobby to ignore I Should Be So Lucky, the Stock, Aitken Waterman-era bubblegum that started it all. It defies belief that she is 46 and has endured a bout of cancer, but the secret of her longevity is obvious: everyone, including the artist, exits grinning from ear to ear.

    After charges of diva behavior by the singer, her supporters list alleged transgressions by former friend and choreographer Isaac Calpito.

    Criticizing Ariana Grande is a dangerous game.

    The “Problem” singer has been battered in the press lately by a string of stories that paint her as a brat and a diva.

    Now her camp is mounting a campaign to discredit her former best friend and choreographer, Isaac Calpito, because Grande’s people believe he is the main source of the unflattering tales.

    After the latest wave of stories hit the papers this week, Grande confidants sent unsolicited, bullet-pointed lists of Calpito’s supposed transgressions. They claim, among other things, that there have been “numerous complaints by many women working around (Grande’s) team for inappropriate behavior” by Calpito while he was working for the singer.

    The snitches also claimed that he was suspended and later resigned after a “lengthy investigation” into the alleged behavior.

    Grande and Calpito had their falling-out over the summer, but Calpito is trying to stay above the fray.

    After rumors first began to circulate that he was behind some of the stories, he tweeted, “I wish Ariana the BEST and even if I had a story to sell ... I wouldn’t.”

    The pair were once thick as thieves. As recently as five months ago, Grande posted on her Instagram about Calpito, “thank u for the endless inspiration and for pushing me to grow as an artist and to shake my booty I love u.”

    Unfortunately for the former Nickelodeon star, if her former friend is telling tales about her, he isn’t the only one. Earlier this month, an Australian newspaper reported that Grande will only be photographed from the left side. Since then a slew of negative reports have come out, including one story that she was a “monster” on a Marie Claire magazine shoot.

    Even E! host Giuliana Rancic has jumped on the bandwagon, complaining that Grande’s team demanded that Rancic switch places with the singer before an interview on the American Music Awards red carpet last November so that only Grande’s left side was on camera. “You know it was like, ‘You either get on the other side or we don't do an interview,’ ” Rancic said.

    And multiple sources have told Confidenti@l about the now-legendary autograph session, which ended with Grande slipping into an elevator and saying of her giddy fans, “I hope they all f—ing die.”

    A rep for Grande declined to comment on our story. Calpito told Confidenti@l, “I haven’t been the source of any stories about Ariana and I wish her nothing but the best.”

    As promotion for "The Judge" kicks off this weekend, I feel the need to run the risk of over sharing.....

    My mom passed away early this week....I wanna say something about her life, and a generic "obit" won't suffice...

    Elsie Ann Ford was born outside Pittsburgh in April of 1934, daughter of an engineer who worked on the Panama Canal, and mother who ran a jewelry shop in Huntingdon, where they settled....a bona fide "Daughter Of The American Revolution."

    In the mid '50s, she dropped out of college and headed to NY, with dreams of becoming a comedienne. In '62, she met my dad, (who proposed at a Yankees/Orioles game). They married, had my sister Allyson in '63 and me in '65...

    Replace my missing front tooth!

    My name is Amanda Swafford. I am a disabled single mom of a 12 year old boy and I work only part time.

    When I was 6, I lost both of my front teeth in a bike accident the first week both my teeth came in. My dad was so poor he had to take me to Baylor dental school... More ongoing trauma... skip forward to 18 years old when I smiled for the first time and I had the current (former) teeth put in. Fast forward 18 more years and BOOM fried chicken bone takes off my tooth at the root, now we have the current toothy grin.

    I have no insurance (most doesn't cover cosmetics anyway) and more importantly to the dentist, no money.

    The procedures I need just for this one tooth (extraction, bone graft and surgical implant) are going to cost 5000 dollars.

    If I had money like that I would have replaced my glasses when they broke 2 years ago and started a savings account for my son to go to college or buy a car to drive his blind mom around.

    But I need to buy a front tooth now.
    ...all I want for Christmas is my front right tooth!

    if you know me, smiles and laughter are my two coping mechanisms to deal with my uncurable blinding eye disease. Maybe one day I can ask to be funded to help my vision, but for now can you just help me smile?


    Ok, anyone who has watched me make a fool of myself on #antm or if I have made you smile and laugh in real life... Here's a chance to own a part of me.

    You can point to my mouth and say "I did that!"

    To replace this wayward tooth, it will be more expensive than my boys first car. I work part time for a tiny amount per hour. Alas, I don't have enough credit for the medical credit card that is offered. So please, if you can, help... $5, $20, a couple grand...whatever you might have laying around to write off as a tax deduction.

    I like smiling. A lot.

    If you know me, you know I have a hard time accepting help. I have an even harder time asking for it. If I had options, I wouldn't be doing this.
