Tomorrow, our August/September 2016 issue officially arrives on newsstands — and it’s a major milestone for us. That’s right, this is our ONE HUNDREDTH issue, something we were never quite sure we’d see when BUST began in 1993. And we can’t think of a more perfect cover star for our 100th issue than Tina Fey, who we have loved for well over a decade. She first appeared on our cover back in 2004 when she was on SNL — before she created Mean Girls, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, or so many of our other favorite TV… Read more
Indie icon, musician, and writer Amanda Palmer is the latest woman to be featured in a video for "The What's Underneath Project." The project, which I was fortunate enough to discover recently, was created in 2014 by StyleLikeU, and its message is absolutely beautiful. The goal of it all is to "uncover the power of genuine self-acceptance by stripping us down to open us up." Here's how it works: the interviewee, typically an alternative celeb (like badass punk babes Amanda Palmer and Meredith Graves, plus so many… Read more

Diane Coffee came strutting into the press lounge at the annual 4Knots Festival at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan wearing red and white pinstripes and giant, circular '70s pink sunglasses. The image matches the performance — bright, retro, and flamboyant. Coffee later sported a thick stripe of metallic eye makeup across their face, as they wailed into the mic, truly putting on theatrics for the audience. A performer deemed "psychedelic Motown" by fans and friends, they truly bring an enthralling live… Read more

Gender is Over (If You Want It): BUST Interview

By Gabrielle Diekhoff  In Arts  On Jul 22, 2016

Recently, you may have seen some of your favorite artists and musicians rocking merch that loudly states “GENDER IS OVER” in bold white letters against a black mesh jersey. And, as I was, you might be wondering what the deal is with that. Where are these jerseys coming from? Who made them? What are they for? And most importantly…where can I get one??? So, I decided to do some intense research – AKA, I Googled it – in order to find out what all of the fuss was about. It turns out, the jerseys are repping a project… Read more

10 Things That Prove Patti Smith Is Goddess Of The Universe

By Madelyn Sundquist  In Music  On Jul 22, 2016

Patti Smith must be a divine gift to this world. Deemed by some the "Godmother of Punk" and others the "Punk Poet Laureate," I see her myself as "Goddess Patti." Seriously, after seeing this woman dance, chant, swear, banter, and of course, sing live on stage, I am convinced of her other-worldly nature. Check out just a few of the reasons why I think Patti is totally a deity sent to us to empower and inspire us into creative action. It's impossible to really communicate the kind of bright light in the world Patti is… Read more
Punk pioneer Legs McNeil, and author and poet Gillian McCain are the masterminds behind Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History Of Punk, a book that is largely regarded as the first and most comprehensive written piece on punk history. Please Kill Me is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a re-release and a series of readings (well, more like parties with music, alcohol, and Michael Des Barres hosting). BUST spent some time with Legs and Gillian and talked about the book, the evolution of punk, and how… Read more
As a queer woman, I’ve come to terms with the fact that it’s difficult to find a convincing lesbian film that doesn’t fall victim to the seemingly ever-present male gaze. Seriously, how many times do I have to endure lengthy pornographic scissoring scenes in order to get some sort of gay girl romance? It’s exhausting. Miraculously, however, French director Catherine Corsini’s Summertime (La Belle Saison), is an extraordinary exception to that tiresome rule. It’s the early 1970s, and Delphine (Izia Higelin) is a farm… Read more
Without much introduction or explanation, I will present a list I have compiled of songs in which myself or friends have enjoyed masturbating to. We encourage you to light some candles, put something sexy on, and get down with yourself to these choice favorites. 1. “What You Need” by The Weeknd 2. “Sex With Me” by Rihanna 3. “Anytime, Anyplace” by Janet Jackson 4. “Power Trip” by J. Cole 5. “XO” by Beyonce 6. "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" by D'Angelo 7. “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld 8. “Pickles” by Peaches 9.… Read more
Four years after Sleepwalk With Me, Mike Birbiglia is finally back with his second film as a director — and this time, it’s an ensemble dramedy. Don’t Think Twice, out today, features Birbiglia, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Keegan-Michael Key, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard as members of a veteran New York improv troupe that just can’t quite seem to “make it” — until one of them finally does, landing a job on the thinly-veiled version of SNL called “Weekend Live.” What follows is a way-too-real look at envy and… Read more
Into the Forest Written and directed by Patricia Rozema Out July 22ndRating: 4/5 Set in the near future, Into the Forest follows a family of three living in rural Canada: a widowed father (Callum Keith Rennie) and his two daughters, the studious and practical Nell (Ellen Page) and the dancer and dreamer Eva (Evan Rachel Wood). One night, as Nell is studying for a test and Eva is practicing for a dance competition, the power goes out with no explanation. Part of a continent-wide blackout, this emergency is soon followed… Read more
When I first started watching Absolutely Fabulous during the ‘90s — a British sitcom about the hilarious misadventures of two self-absorbed, mid-aged (or in Patsy’s case, Yoda-aged), boozy, unapologetic career women who happened to be best friends — I was instantly addicted. At the time, I had just started college and I wasn’t sure what adulthood had in store for me. I was a budding journalist and music VJ with a Denver TV show called "Teletunes." I also worked at my college radio station as a DJ during a time when… Read more
Bonafide creep Roger Ailes has resigned as the CEO of Fox News amid a slew of sexual harassment allegations. If you aren’t familiar with what has been happening over at the “fair and balanced” news channel, here is an update: The ex-host of “Fox and Friends” and formers news reporter for Fox News, Gretchen Carlson, was fired this past June after 11 years with the network. Carlson then proceeded to file a lawsuit on July 6th against Ailes, claiming that he had sexually harassed her on multiple occasions, propositioned… Read more

The RNC Gift Bag Has Something Worse Than Trump's Face In It

By Madelyn Sundquist  In Living  On Jul 22, 2016

You could say that a Trump-themed goodie bag alone is horrendous — sure, his grumpy orange face on his less-than-politically-correct book titled Crippled America is enough to make me gag. But the RNC goes farther this year, including an ever-so-lovely reminder of their staunch stance against a woman’s right to choose — a small, plastic fetus. Yes, mixed in between the “Make America Great Again” ball cap and the crappy plastic Trump mug is a little figure called a “Young One” manufactured by the pro-life company,… Read more
Like many female directors, Adrienne Shelly was starting to hit her stride as she turned 40. Starting out as an actress in the New York indie scene during the 90s, Shelly soon found her way behind the camera, writing and directing. Shelly, was born Adrienne Levine to Sheldon Levine and Elaine Langbaum of Queens. She grew up mostly on Long Island, graduating from high school in Jericho, New York. She enrolled in Boston University to study film production but dropped out her junior year and moved back to New York. Shelly… Read more

5 F*cked Up Things From The RNC

By Grace Easterby  In Living  On Jul 21, 2016

The last three nights have been a mess. The kind of mess only to be produced when you gather hundreds of wealthy, racist, women-hating people, stuff them into one room, and encourage vulgarity, yelling, and overall tomfoolery. There are almost too many ridiculous things happening at and in response to the Republican National Convention to keep track, but here is a list of just five things that have really blown the top off the GOP sanity lid. 1. In a pre-convention panel, a Republican Representative from Iowa, Steve… Read more

Trumpemon Go Is The Only Thing We Approve Of From The GOP Convention

By Courtney Bissonette  In TV  On Jul 21, 2016

The writers at Saturday Night Live have a long hilarious road ahead of them. And the only kinda positive thing to come out of the blood-curdling, screaming nightmare of the Republican campaign is we occasionally get some comedy out of it. With a long way to go until SNL returns in October, the writers couldn’t pass up the material of sheer comedy gold that the Republican National Convention hands directly to them. So the good people of NBC did a special Weekend Update with Colin Jost and Michael Che commentating on the… Read more
Here’s some exciting news: Kirsten Dunst will make her feature film directorial debut with an adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s classic 1963 novel The Bell Jar. The movie will star Dakota Fanning as Esther Greenwood. According to Deadline, production will begin in early 2017. Both Dunst and Fanning are deeply involved: Dunst co-wrote the script with Nellie Kim, and Fanning is a producer. The Bell Jar is groundbreaking for its portrayal of mental illness, and it’s often one of the only books by women taught in high schools —… Read more
Helen Gurley Brown: a journalist, a benefactor, a feminist. There are a lot of reasons to love this woman, whether it's because of the sexual revolution she started with Sex and The Single Girl, the many issues of Cosmopolitan that she ran as editor-in-chief, or the amazing charitable work that's been done with the Helen Gurley Brown fund. Gurley Brown died a few years ago—a true loss for the world. But what she leaves behind is the thousands of young girls whose education she's fostered through her grants, the huge… Read more

Milo Yiannopoulos's Fans Don't Understand What Freedom Of Speech Is

By Courtney Bissonette  In Living  On Jul 21, 2016

Another day, another update giving Milo Yiannopoulos an extra minute of fame that he doesn’t deserve. In response to being permanently banned from Twitter for his relentless harassment of Leslie Jones, Milo unfortunately gave a statement further polluting the world with his words. He said, “With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives.” Well, Milo, if being a conservative means… Read more
In yet another horrifying instance of police brutality directed against black men, Charles Kinsey — a therapist at a group home in South Florida — was shot in the leg while lying on his back with his arms up, trying to calm an autistic man who was holding a toy truck. The shooting occurred on Monday, and a video filmed by a bystander was released on Wednesday, writes the Washington Post. In the video, Kinsey can be heard telling police with assault rifles, "All he has is a toy truck in his hand. A toy truck. I am a… Read more

Michelle Obama And Missy Elliott Get Their Freak On

By Grace Easterby  In Entertainment  On Jul 21, 2016

Number One Lady, Michelle Obama, graced us all with her presence in James Corden’s "Carpool Karaoke" last night and it was as incredible as you’d expect. The two jam out together, dancing and singing to Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, and Missy Elliott — who — surprise jumped into the car to groove and sing with them!! It was the best. Missy didn’t even bother to buckle up, she was strutting her moves too hard. But, groove is not all they did. They talked about what Michelle will miss after leaving the White House, her new… Read more

By Gabrielle Diekhoff  In Style  On Jul 20, 2016

It can be difficult to find fashion bloggers that break the mold of society’s strict beauty standards – AKA, white, tall and thin, and cis-gendered – but there are plenty of beautiful, body-positive bloggers out there who are embracing their diversity and absolutely slaying the alternative fashion game. Luckily for you, a lot of them have Instagram, and you can follow them there for daily fashion inspo, feminist rants, and body-posi vibes.

Kesha's New Tour Is The Perfect 'F**** You' To Dr. Luke And Sony

By Gabrielle Diekhoff  In Music  On Jul 20, 2016

In a beautiful act of defiance, Kesha is going on tour for the first time since suing former producer Dr. Luke for sexual assault earlier this year, despite the fact that the lawsuit is not yet resolved. Appropriately, the tour is called "The Fuck the World Tour." The fiery, feminist pop star made an announcement on her Instagram on Tuesday, July 19th, saying, “The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and… Read more
Sometimes imitation is NOT the finest form of flattery. It's just stealing. Zara, better known as overpriced basicland for hipster yuppies, has just added itself to the list of brands that rip off independent artists and mass produce their work. This time, the victim is Tuesday Bassen, an LA-based graphic designer who creates these incredible images. Here are some of her awesome pieces: Erase You patch, $10 Girls Pennant pin, $10 Heart Lolli patch, $12 Keep Out pin, $10 They're pretty adorable, right? Well, it seems… Read more

There’s some good news in the world today, everyone—no I’m not kidding—and it means a little less hate on the Internet... let's hope. Milo Yiannopoulos, AKA the notorious islamaphobic, racist, misogynist, Trump supporter who recently rallied his followers to spew racial hate at Leslie Jones just got permanently banned from Twitter. In the past couple days, the deeply offensive comments about Jones’s appearance in the new Ghostbusters forced her to leave the platform, as Yiannopoulos and company whipped hateful messages… Read more
In January of 1865, a young charwoman appeared at the Lambeth Police Court in London seeking assistance from the magistrate after having been attacked by her employer’s favorite dog. A January 7 edition of the Kentish Independent reports that her employer’s name was Miss Mary Baker, “a maiden lady of over 70 years of age.” Two years prior, Miss Baker had inherited a substantial fortune, the bulk of which she now expended on “feeding and keeping” a large pack of dogs inside of her house. As the article relates: “The… Read more
As a writer inhabiting this world in a female body, I am SO sick of seeing lists of “must-read books” that feature predominately cis-male authors. Talented and innovative women-identifying authors deserve as much exposure as basic dudes like Tom Clancy or Dean Koontz or whatever balding white man is hogging the shelves at Barnes and Noble with the same, repetitive stories. I’m. Over. It. Chances are, as a BUST reader, you are, too. But have no fear. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite short story collections… Read more

Hit Like A Pussy: On Boxing, Strength, And Vaginas

By Hillary Savoie  In Entertainment  On Jul 19, 2016

“Don’t hit like a pussy, put your hips behind it.” I look up from my punching bag. The man speaking to me is not my teacher, and I don’t know who he is. He looks at me pointedly and then punches my heavy bag hard, his large arms demonstrating the proper technique. The chains on the bag shake. I watch him out of the corner of my eye—because I do want to know how to properly hit someone with my full strength. But, at the same time, I’m uncomfortable—and that word, pussy, momentarily magnifies my sense of powerlessness. I… Read more

These Pin-Up Ladies Are Veterans Helping Veterans

By Robyn Smith  In Feminism  On Jul 19, 2016

These women might seem like they're straight from a WWII pin-up calendar, but they're so much more than that. The veterans have visited over 10,000 ill and injured soldiers at their bedside in both hospitals and homes across 31 states in the US. From the money they've raised from their annual calendars, they've been able to donate over $50,000 for state-of-the-art rehab equipment that they've given to hospitals around the world. "We also ship morale-boosting care packages to our troops deployed around the globe, do fun… Read more
Ask any comedian what the formula for comedy is and they will tell you that it’s “Time + Tragedy.” Comedy has always tapped into dark personal matters, but does that mean any topic, no matter how horrible, can eventually be funny? If someone is a sexual assault survivor, finding humor in rape may seem difficult. However, it’s a tactic used by more and more comedians to tackle this prevalent topic both as a way to push their comedic skills but also as a way to fight against the heinous crime. Not everyone is capable of… Read more

100 Naked Women Protested The Republican National Convention

By Kailey Thompson  In Feminism  On Jul 19, 2016

Artist Spencer Tunick created his latest large-scale nude art piece at this week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland. 100 women posed nude on Sunday outside the convention center, holding up mirrors to reflect “the knowledge and wisdom of progressive women and the concept of ‘Mother Nature’ into and onto the convention center, cityscape and horizon of Cleveland.” According to Tunick’s website, more than 1,800 women signed up for the 100 spots he needed filled to complete the piece, called “Everything She Says… Read more
Ummmmm WOW...So apparently, several parts Melania Trump’s RNC speech last night were plagiarized word for word from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech. Seriously? This is hilarious. I don’t know who thought this would be a good idea, but I think it is pretty safe to assume that several of her speech writers got fired today. All I have to say is, thank you to the Trump campaign for becoming more and more of a trainwreck every single day. Please keep it coming. We’ll just sit back on the couch and eat some popcorn while we… Read more
Leslie Jones is a talented, hilarious woman, and now that she's gotten some much-deserved attention from Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live, the trolls that live under Hollywood's star-studded bridge have come out to taunt her. Thanks for the input, Nero. I think we'll put that in the jar of privileged white man tears so it can swim around until it drowns itself. Yes, clearly, feminists see themselves as victims, when you go around saying things like this in your review of Ghostbusters: "What we are left with is a… Read more
It seems that Kate McKinnon, star in the latest Ghostbusters, has always had a thing for the supernatural. X-Files star Gillian Anderson found a photograph of a young Kate McKinnon dressed as Agent Dana Scully, and every sci-fi lover’s dreams came true with a single Tweet. The future is female is right! This goes to show that represtentation really does matter. In this case, it's representation of women in sci-fi. The photo was first seen on Reddit a couple years ago, but has been brought to a new light thanks to the… Read more
Samantha Bee wittingly and comically mocked the Republican National Convention last night on her show, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee. I’m sure the writing staff over at Full Frontal was overjoyed with all the hilariously disgusting material from the Convention, seeing that the jokes almost wrote themselves. Samantha addressed a myriad of topics, like the fact that many Republican Party members turned down speaking opportunities—because who really wants to be affiliated with Trump? She mocked the GOP’s far-right party… Read more

In case you haven't heard, Ghostbusters finally came out this past Friday and it did not disappoint! Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, some of our favorite funny girls, kept me giggling from beginning to end. In celebration of this hilarious film, here are some of our favorite comedies with female leads, because women have always been funny. Bridesmaids Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, and a wedding. What could (couldn't) go wrong? Mean Girls Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and a… Read more
Viv Albertine of The Slits did just about the most punk thing ever and defaced a punk exhibit for not including women involved in the movement. Albertine was at the British Library in London on Friday evening (July 15), taking part in an event in celebration of punk, featuring an exhibit “Punk 1976-78.” On a panel that read, “Groups such as Sex Pistols, the Clash, and Buzzcocks stimulated a nationwide wave of grassroots creativity, sparking a vital cultural legacy that endures to the present day,” she crossed out the… Read more
Happy Monday! We all probably need some comic relief for the beginning of the week, so look no further than McCall's Pattern Behavior. Taking mid-20th century, vintage drawings used for fabric pattern books, the Tumblr reworks the images with funny captions about potential conversations the model girls could be having. From goofy jabs at people who don't follow the rules at "Hat Club" to a big eye roll to the images that rely on cultural appropriation, the blog can make a pretty funny break if you're having one of… Read more
On my way to Dublin last week something happened that not so long ago would have been a massive issue for me. The fact that it didn’t really phase me proved to me how far I’ve come. The incident was an airplane seat belt that didn’t fit. This is something that I actually used to fear. A while back, every time I boarded a plane, I braced myself for the humiliation of being too fat to fit. It turned out to be no big deal. I had a brief moment of panic, my thoughts raced through all the seat belts that had fit & how big I… Read more

A History Of Star Trek's Portrayal Of Women

By Lauren Saccone  In Movies  On Jul 18, 2016

When I was a kid, you were either a Star Wars fan or a Star Trek fan. For some reason, there was no overlap; the idea of liking both was inconceivable. Doctor Who hadn’t yet launched its overseas takeover, so young sci-fi fans were left with one of two options. You chose a phaser or a light saber, and you hung onto it for dear life. I was decidedly in the Trekkie camp. My father had every single episode of The Original Series, and we would bond over the adventures of Captain Kirk and the Enterprise. Even from a young… Read more

5 Reasons Mike Pence Is Terrible For Women

By Katherine Barner  In Feminism  On Jul 18, 2016

Last week, Donald Trump announced that his running mate would be Mike Pence, governor of Indiana. Pence has a history of taking legislative measures that are are terrible for women, the LGBT community, low income families, etc.. As if associating himself so closely with Trump wasn't already the perfect way to kill a political career and reputation (that, let's face it, wasn't stellar to begin with), here are five reasons why Pence is bad for women/ a terrible human. 1. He thinks Mulan is a valid reason why women don’t… Read more

Lisa Frank Has A New Clothing Line And We're All Over It

By Robyn Smith  In Style  On Jul 18, 2016

That's right, you heard me correctly. Lisa Frank, beloved provider of elementary school coolness, is now wearable. I can sport my love of unicorns and rainbows right on my chest, reflecting technicolor nostalgia and the mild odor of a felt tip marker. The brand announced the clothes on Instagram last week: For '90s kids, '00s kids, and the adults who raised them, this is very, very exciting. While no longer are the days where we sported neontastic folders labelled with our names on the inside and butterfly clips (I… Read more

Stephanie Beatriz Used BUST To Come Out And We Are Honored

By Robyn Smith  In TV  On Jul 18, 2016

Stephanie Beatriz, star of the hit sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has used BUST's post about Aubrey Plaza coming out as bisexual to reveal to the world that she's bisexual, too. It's hard to believe I'm actually awake right now—that this isn't just a beautiful dream I'm living in. Though Plaza's inspiring words were the platform for Beatriz to build upon, we're so, so thrilled that it was our outlet that was a channel of acceptance and love. Beatriz confirmed that she was, indeed, coming out as bisexual, when she responded… Read more
Qandeel Baloch—controversial Pakistani social media star—was strangled by her own brother the night of July 15. The reason for the horrific killing? Honor; that of her family, which her brother believed was being tarnished by Qandeel’s work. Qandeel described herself as a “modern feminist,” intentionally being provocative, sexual, and very much in the public eye through her videos on social media. The videos, mostly in Urdu and thus not very accessible to English speakers, covered controversial topics regarding women’s… Read more
