■ Lena Dunham has a problem with Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean.” She Tweeted, “Let’s do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes when she means no and vice versa, k?” We imagine she’s hinting at sexual consent, but that might be a stretch. Bieber said earlier this summer of the song, “Girls are often flip-floppy. They say something, and then they mean something else. ‘What do you mean? I don’t really know, that’s why I’m asking.’”
Let's do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes when she means no and vice versa, k?

Long story short: Brandy was in NYC for her extended stint on Broadway, and asked to hang out with the host since she tapes her show in the city. Wendy’s reaction was nothing short of condescending.
