It’s Wednesday, which means our pal Jarvis has the pleasure of ambushing celebrities in the elevator… again. Between juggling his music for fun. and Bleachers, our August You Oughta Know act Jack Antonoff is a busy man. But not too busy to hang out in the elevator at VH1 HQ.
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!
