Howard Stern Slams Lena Dunham

This is interesting because I was just reading about Lena Dunham at the Los Angeles Times, "Review: Lena Dunham's 'Girls'."

"Maybe I'll check it out," I was thinking to myself. So now here comes Robert Stacy McCain reporting on Howard Stern smacking down the grind culture celebrity, "Nobody Really Likes @LenaDunham, and Deep Down Inside She Knows It, Too."

Anyway, if you know somebody like Lena Dunham, you understand what she’s doing: “I’m fat and ugly and unpopular, but maybe if I add ‘cruel’ and ‘obnoxious’ to the list, I can pretend like people who don’t like me are intimidated by my intelligence and courage.” This isn’t really an effective compensation, but it provides her an excuse — a rationalization, a defense mechanism — she can alternately cling to as a crutch or wield as a weapon, harming others without actually helping herself. The damage is never healed, because her inner feelings of worthlessness are so intense, she scorns as contemptible anyone who wants to help her: “If you like me, there must be something wrong with you.”
