Lena Dunham has revealed she listens to Taylor Swift while writing Girls.

Speaking to Glamour magazine Dunham explained, "She [Swift] writes her own destiny in a way which is very unusual, especially for a young woman in the world of pop music. I wrote half of the first season of Girls listening to her Speak Now album and wrote much of the third season listening to Red."

She added that she often calls upon Swift for advice, "Taylor is a good friend of mine. I call her and text her all the time. She helps me be stronger and make better decisions. She has amazing creative instincts. She's really a proponent of not feeling pressure from anybody else and recognising that you have a better connection to what your brand is than anybody else."
