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!"

Mmm. Delish

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.

Lena Dunham at the Emmy Awards

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:

Yes, Lena Dunham gets naked very often on the HBO hit Girls.

So one might think she's an unusual source for having such a strong opinion about the ongoing hacking scandal that has left the Internet littered with images of Kaley Cuoco nude, Jennifer Lawrence nude and many other female stars exposed.

But Dunham makes an important distinction in a new Twitter post that rails hard against the criminal at the center of this massive naked picture release.

"The way in which you share your body must be a CHOICE. Support these women and do not look at these pictures,” the 28-year-old writes.

“Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It’s not okay. Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they’re a sex offender."

On the HBO hit Girls, viewers often see Lena Dunham in bed.

But they've still never seen Lena Dunham like this.

The actress, who recently dyed her hair platinum blonde, has taken the no-makeup-photo thing to a new level by posting the following image to Instagram, hilariously writing on Twitter how it's "pretty depressing this look isn't even fueled by one ounce of alcohol."

The 28-year-old star later added:

"Realizing I have some of the very specific physical attributes of a woman on trial for killing her much older husband and that's hard."

Bryan Cranston might have hung up his Heisenberg hat, but if there's one thing we know after watching the 2014 Emmy Awards it's that the world can't get enough of Walter White.

Not only did Cranston and his Breaking Bad cohorts rack up an impressive 5 Emmy wins during the telecast, but he also racked up an impressive number of lip locks.

The most infamous of which will forever be that funny moment when Cranston kissed Julia Louis-Dreyfus. What can we say!? The man was excited!

Elsewhere, Sarah Silverman displayed some odd behavior, which is really nothing new for Sarah Silverman, so there's that. Oh, and shade was most definitely thrown.

In the direction of Jessica Lange, of all people. Say what now? Sit back, relax, and click through this gallery of the 2014 Emmy Awards in GIFs to relive the night's best moments:

We need your help, THGers.

Lena Dunham posted a photo to Instagram on August 15 and we can't tell: does the Girls star have a new look?

We can't tell people, can you? Does Lena Dunham have a new hair color?

The answer is actually no: the Girls star has an EXTREME new look, writing along with the above picture of herself with a blonde bowl cut that "change is good."

And she isn’t going all Kim Kardashian on us either, fooling fans with a wig just to garner attention.

Lena Dunham is no stranger to controversy. The Girls star/creator has come under fire for everything from her constant nudity to accusations that Dunham is an unfit dog owner

Lena's latest dust-up, however, has nothing to do with her personal life or her cultishly adored HBO series.

No, this time Dunham has entered a debate involving NBC's refusal to air a commercial because it contains the word "abortion."

The ad in question is a trailer for an off-beat romantic comedy entitled Obvious Child that stars Girls regulars Jenny Slate and Gaby Hoffman.

In the film, Slate plays a newly single woman who gets pregnant during a one-night stand and decides to have an abortion. 

Last week, it was first reported that NBC rejected a version of the trailer that includes Slate's character declaring her decision to terminate her pregnancy. The unexplained decision angered Dunham and many others:

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.
