So Lena Dunham with all her “I am woman, hear me roar” wisdom decided to do a literary analysis of Justin Bieber's new song “What Do You Mean”, which tbh is at a 3rd grade reading level. Like yes, I've been playing it on repeat for the past week, but I'm not pretending it's poetry.
Anyway, Lena clearly had some free time between whining about her life and being naked for Girls, so she tweeted, “Let's do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes when she means no and vice versa, k?” No, it's not “k” Lena. Basically, she was trying to say that Justin's lyrics hinted at issues of consent – think no means no and yes means yes.
But like, the whole point of the song is that Justin is in a complicated relationship where he can't figure out what his gf means when she says she's fine. They're way way past the “Netflix and chill?” text. Plus, this is like the first productive thing that Justin has done since he cut his swoosh bangs.
Then Lena tried to apologize and Instagrammed a comparison shot where she and Justin basically have the same horrific hair cut. Kind of a “who wore it better,” and by it I mean the worst hairstyle since the mullet. She captioned it “how could anyone think I have an issue with Bieber?” Probs because he looks better with that haircut than she does.
Now pretty much everyone is asking Lena, “WTF did this accomplish.” Which might complete Bieber's song trilogy with “Where Are U Now” and “What Do You Mean.”
