In a recent interview with Rosie O’Donnell on “The View,” Lena Dunham dished on love, art, and her new novel Not That Kind of Girl.  In closing the discussion regarding her book’s dedication to both Nora Ephron and her boyfriend Jack Antonoff (lead guitarist for Fun), Dunham states, “It can be tough to share stuff that private, but I guess that’s what book dedications are for.”  In true journalist fashion, Rosie O’Donnell catches the bait and continues on the topic, one that has garnered a handful of criticism that surrounds Dunham: “A lot of people have accused you, as they've accused me, of the TMI.  That...we share too much; that we are...

Jaaason Deruloooo. Pretty soon, Bucknellians will be able to hear live the pop star infamously sing his own name in that tone you all know so well. On October 25th, 2014, co-headliners Jason Derulo and Chance the Rapper will perform at the Gerhard Fieldhouse.  With big performers such as these, many Bucknell students wonder how the Bucknell Concert Committee is able to select big artists to come to our school and how they are chosen.
