Lena Dunham is adding 'editor' to her long list of titles (actress, writer, director, feminist crusader), by launching a weekly newsletter called Lenny. The Girls star is teaming up with producer Jenni Konner to create the bulletin, which according to Buzzfeed is for "an army of like-minded intellectually curious women and the people who love them, who want to bring change but also want to know, like, where to buy the best tube top for summer that isn't going to cost your entire paycheck."

The content will be contributed by Jessica Grose, a former writer for Jezebel and editor at Slate, Rookie writer Laia Garcia and editor-at-large Doreen St. Felix.

"We want people who have totally diverse interests," said Lena. "People who want to talk about radical politics but also want to talk about fashion and also want to talk about Rihanna, and also understand that all of those things can be happening at the same time."

Apparently, Lenny was inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop. "We love Goop," said Lena. "Jenni and I have always been obsessed with Goop. We feel strongly that even though some of it is aspirational, it's aspirations like 'I want to know how to take care of my body and soufflé something.'"

Lenny will launch in September this year and you can already sign up for it. On another note, Lena has talked about how she felt standing next to Taylor Swift and her gang of Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Hailee Steinfeld on stage on Monday at the 1989 concert.

"I was so thrilled to support my friend and so displeased to learn about the truth of my own height. I've been feeling pretty tall, feeling pretty sturdy, and it was amazing to me, like, 'Oh, I'm not tall, I'm chubby,'" said Lena. "But I mean, on most days, I feel really great and fine about my body, but I don't think standing next to, like, three supermodels or so is anything even the most confident woman needs to do."
