Am I the only one who’s felt there was a huge void in the universe since Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard split up? Now, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and go back to browsing Etsy for hand-embroidered bicycle baskets because Us Weekly reports that Girls writer/creator/star Lena Dunham is dating Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff. Quirky, multi-talented girl and horned-rim glasses wearing musician? Yes, please!
“They’re trying to keep it a secret,” a source told the magazine. But they’ve already collaborated on a video for the New Yorker and she’s allegedly asked to use a Fun. song on Girls next season.
Another clue to their relationship, Dunham tweeted about Antonoff’s recent interview with MTV News, in which he shared a photo he took of himself and Fiona Apple when he was a kid at the 1997 VMAs. “Best thing that’s happened yet in America,” she wrote. Well, maybe that time Shoshanna smoked crack might have this moment beat. But it’s a close tie.
Crossing fingers for them to appear together at the VMAs tomorrow!
