Have you guys been watching “Girls”? No, not season 2, which premiered earlier this week. You think I got money for HBO? I’m talking about season 1, which I watched over Christmas at my parents house. Yeah, I might be 9 months late to the conversation, but I’ve got a lot to say.
For those who haven’t seen it, let me get straight to the headline: the show features a lot of Lena Duhnam. And she’s naked. Oh, one more thing – she’s not “model thin,” and yet she still shows her boobs and thighs on television. Scandalous, right?
“Girls” might not be the groundbreaking show that some are making it out to be, but I support Dunham’s right to do whatever the hell she wants to do with her body, on camera or off.
Which is what makes Santigold’s video for “Girls,” which she wrote for the show, one of my current favorite things. It features girls of all ages dancing and singing and all around having a good time and it puts a smile on my face every time I watch it. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a banging track that’ll having you singing “around around around the block”:
Watch for: the girl at 1:28 whose dance moves are almost as good as mine.
