With all of the recent controversy surrounding Lena Dunham's comments about her sister, it's easy to forget that she's still the star, head writer and executive producer of a moderately popular HBO series.

But she is, and the show that's almost as divisive as its showrunner is soon to return for a new season of white people struggling to get by in spite of their dwindling trust funds.

Yes, the first trailer for season 4 of Girls hit YouTube today, and dare we say, it actually looks...funny?

Despite the show relocating much of its main action to Iowa (where Hannah's been accepted to the country's most prestigious creative writing MFA program), it ironically looks like Girls is returning to its roots.

Lena Dunham has taken a break from rage spiraling to craft a thoughtful statement regarding the controversy around some passages in her new book.

Late last week, the website Truth Revolt cited a story in “Not That Kind of Girl” in which Dunham said she looked into her sister's vagina when she was seven years old.

The site laid into Dunham for this behavior, prompting an angry response from the creator of HBO's Girls.

A lawyer for Dunham also sent Truth Revolt a cease-and-desist letter, though the site simply went on the offensive in response, citing another passage in the book (where Dunham jokes about acting like a "sexual predator" around her sister in exchange for kisses) as inappropriate.

Meanwhile, Dunham canceled a number of appearances in promotion of her memoir while she dealt with the fallout of this scandal.

Grace Dunham is standing up for Lena Dunham.

The Girls actress has been accused of sexual abuse by the conservative website Truth Revolt, which sites multiple passages from Dunham's best-selling memoir as proof:

Dunham tells a story about looking into her sister's vagina when she was seven years old. Dunham says she sometimes pleasured herself as a child while sharing a bed with Grace. Dunham jokes about demanding kisses from her sibling like a "sexual predator."

In response to the claims, Dunham's attorneys sent a cease-and-desist letter to Truth Revolt, while Dunham canceled some appearances and went on a self-admitted "rage spiral" on Twitter.

Now, Grace Dunham is also speaking out against the charges.

Over the weekend, conservative website Truth Revolt accused Lena Dunham of child molestation based on an anecdote from her recent memoir, Not That Kind of Girl.

Dunham responded to the controversy by falling into a self-described "rage spiral" and denouncing her critics on Twitter.

Dunham described the accusations as "really f--king upsetting and disgusting" and she's since canceled two scheduled book tour stops in Europe.

Earlier today, Truth Revolt columnist Ben Shapiro tweeted that he had received a cease and desist order from Dunham's lawyers that threatened to sue the site for "millions of dollars" if Shapiro and company continued quoting from Dunham's book.

Lena Dunham has found one line of criticism she simply can't ignore.

The Girls star, who is no stranger to stirring up controversy (she started the #StoptheStigma campaign after NBC refused to air an ad that mentioned the word abortion) has fired back at critics who have somehow suggested she molested her little sister when both were toddlers.

The allegation stems from a story in Dunham’s best-selling memoir, “Not That Kind of Girl.”

An excerpt from that book reads:

One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.

Dunham was seven years old at the time and actually found multiple pebbles shoved up her sibling's private part.

Lena Dunham has gone green.

No, the Girls star isn't doing anything noteworthy regarding the environment, at least not as far as we know.

But the actress/producer/writer has changed up her hair color once again, ditching her platinum blonde bowl cut for... some kind of green creation.

"Newly minted for the Canadian leg of the tour thanks to @tanneyb @rheannewhite," Dunham wrote on Instagram along with this photo, giving a shout-out to Rheanne White Salon colorist Tanner Bassett.

In the past, when Lena Dunham was feeling starved for attention she'd just take off her clothes on premium cable. 

But these days she has a new book to promote, and apparently serious authors don't strip down at readings, so Lena's been forced to get creative with her shock value antics.

Lena Dunham Smile

We already know Dunham slept with her parents until she was 12, and that revelation didn't go viral the way Lena clearly hoped it would, so now she's pulling out all the stops. 

Yes, the woman responsible for some of the grossest televised visuals outside of Westeros has hit a new low, as Dunham has taken to publicly praising the sad online ramblings of a young mental patient:

 

Discussing - for some reason - the ongoing Amanda Bynes saga during a recent promotional event, Lena didn't express her shock at Bynes falsely accusing her father of sexual assault, or her sympathy for the mentally ill and their families.

No, instead, Dunham bafflingly praised Bynes' ability to post compelling tweets. 

"She did say something kind of similar [to Dunham's character on Girls]," Lena told a crowd in New York over the weekend. "Which was 'I'm not crazy, I'm actually the one who knows everything that's happening."

"I texted [Girls co-creator Jenny Konner] and said, 'Maybe I'm nuts but I think Amanda Bynes is actually kind of a great writer. Do you know what I mean?' She was like, 'I don't know what you mean!'"

Yeah...neither does anyone else Lena. It's worth noting that the "everything that's happening" to which Bynes was a false accusation of child molestation that Bynes later retracted and blamed on a microchip planted in her brain.

Even if the whole rant had been really cleverly phrased (it wasn't) the takeaway would still be, "Wow, that's really sad. Hopefully she gets the help she needs," not, "Damn, that girl can tweet!"

Lena Dunham's much (or at least sort of) anticipated book Not That Kind of Girl has been released, and it's everything you though it would be and then some.

Whether that's a good thing or not? We leave that to you to decide.

Not That Kind of Girl is vintage Dunham, cover to cover.

The 28-year-old Girls creator is chock full of candid, thoughtful, moving and full-on ridiculous observations, anecdotes and stories you won't even believe.

And yet you can easily believe them, because it's her.

She's paradoxical like that, Lena. Fans of Dunham should definitely pick up a copy and savor it in its entirety, because we can't do it justice here.

We can, however, compile some of its "WTF" quotes and put them into gallery form, because if there were ever a person who lent herself to that ...

What does an Oscar winner have in common with a former Jersey Shore cast member?

How can the First Lady of the United States relate to the woman who had sex with Ray J on video camera?

Aside from really weird Instagram photos and a love of revealing their skin to Internet followers, what could Rihanna talk to Miley Cyrus about for hours on end?

The answer to all these questions is one and the same: HAIR.

Nearly all famous females (and a few famous males) have undergone major hairstyle transformations over the past few months, from shortening their locks to dyeing them an unexpected color.

So, in honor of Throwback Thursday, we've collected a number (29, to be exact) of the most radical alterations in the following photo gallery and we're asking readers to consider:

Who is 'doing it right? And who is 'doing it way, way, way wrong?

Lena Dunham is soon to offer up more observations on the difficulties of being rich, white and famous in the form of her new book, Not That Kind of Girl.

Given Dunham's sexual frankness, we expect her memoir to read just like Fifty Shades of Grey, except with frequent complaints about how hard it is to find a good smoothie in Williamsburg.

Anyway, Dunham has been giving lots of characteristically quirky interviews to promote her book and as usual, in her attempt to seem relatable she comes off as the Queen of the Overshare.

(As though Dunham's "makeup free" selfie didn't already earn her that title.)

Dunham recently opened up to The New York Times about outing her lesbian sister to their parents and hallucinating that she was a basket of oranges as a child (seriously). But none of that compares with the weirdness of her childhood sleeping habits:

Lena Dunham Quotes

My mother and I have a massive fight when I choose to wear a banana-printed belly shirt and pink leggings to the Vatican.

I am 20 years old and hate myself. My hair, my face, the curve of my stomach. The way my voice comes out wavering and my poems come out maudlin.
