Wow. This song is almost ten years old. I find that mildly alarming.
Background: she and her boyfriend solemnly swore that they would not get married until same-sex marriage became the law of the land. Lo and behold! – It did. And then Lena brushed up against the Great Revelation: when she said something like that, she meant This is the excuse that I’m using for not getting married right away. And when he said that, he meant This is the excuse that I’m using for not getting married at all.
Not that Lena Dunham has actually had this revelation yet: that’s going to wait for another five years. You see, first her boyfriend will dump her in about two years or so. After that, it’ll take another three years for the guy to find a younger girl with perkier breasts, a firmer backside, and more of a waist to marry. And then the guy will – inexplicably! – send her a notification of the happy event. Because they were ‘still friends.’ (more…)
…so, yeah, I actually sat down and watched it. Good song, good video; I can see why people liked it. Not worth Kanye West imploding his career over… actually, no, it was so totally worth Kanye West imploding his career over, but that’s because I agree with the President that Kanye West is a jackass.
