Judging by her off-kilter lip-syncing of "Chandelier," Lena Dunham shouldn't engage in a lip-sync-off with Jimmy Fallon any time soon. But the writer and "Girls" creator showed off her pop star appeal on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" Monday when she parodied the music video of Sia's "Chandelier" with a live performance. Riffing off the original video, which features a ballerina twirling in a room and playing in curtains, she added props that included weird hole-punching, toilet paper, a loft bunk bed, another person's legs. Let's hope this is the first of many Dunham performance art pieces.
