Jens Lekman to Become Roller Derby Demigod

Drew Barrymore is kind of adorable. Jens Lekman? Also kind of adorable. So we thought maybe they already knew each other from some Secret Adorable People Club we weren't invited too, but at least we now know for a fact they can hug and the universe doesn't like explode into kittens playing with dangling objects or anything.

Drew is directing the upcoming indie-buzz film Whip It that takes on roller derby culture, and apparently wanted a few of Jens' songs in the film so bad she flew him out to L.A. to talk about music and monkeys over coffee. Don't believe us? Hear it from the man himself on his blog.
