Leave it to Girls to debut a sneak peek of a TRAILER--not even the trailer itself--and still have everybody talking. The countdown to season three is in full swing, and now you can get a tiny taste of what's going to happen in 10 magnificent gifs. What's coming up? Judging from the split-second previews, we're betting that Hannah and Jessa address their issues (see: 1), the friends take road trips upstate (see: 6, 9,10) and plenty more bad decisions (see: almost all of them). So...who's excited?!  (Buzzfeed

You might think Lorde's record-breaking track "Royals" was inspired by British dignitaries, but really, the pop star reveals the single was influenced by a baseball player.

He was a baseball player and his shirt said Royals. I was like, I really like that word, because I'm a big word fetishist. I'll pick a word and I'll pin an idea to that." (Huffington Post
