One of BUST’s favorite bands, The Ettes, are celebrating their 10-year anniversary with an album reissue, and we are so excited to premiere a new bonus track, “Get Out,” on BUST.com today! Way back in 2006, The Ettes’ first album, Shake The Dust, came out and set the Nashville-based band off on a long and successful career. The Shake The Dust special anniversary reissue will be out on September 30th with two bonus tracks, “Get Out” and “Eat The Night.” Both songs were previously only available as 7” vinyls and were out of print.
It’s been 23 years since the very first Xeroxed-and-stapled issue of BUST was published, and, as you can see here, we’ve come a long way on our journey to issue 100. Take me to the slideshow Case in point: the baby girl gestating inside Laurie’s belly on the cover of Issue Four just graduated from college. And many of our cover ladies have come a long way, too—some of them were just breaking into the mainstream when they first appeared on our covers, and today they are household names.
Remember those awful middle-school days when you didn't have anyone to sit with? Standing there awkwardly, wondering who to approach...hoping they won't laugh at you... Those days are definitely not filled with my favorite memories. But now, thanks to technology, teenagers may never have to experience that dread and awkwardness again. A new app, 'Sit With Us', helps kids find a welcoming group to eat with during their lunch hour. The app allows students to sign up as “ambassadors”--inviting others to join them.
the Washington Post The Catholic Church and feminist activists have always had a troubled relationship. However, a writer named Kate Bryan believes she’s found a happy medium. In an article with The Washington Post’s "Acts of Faith" column, Bryan describes how living as a 32-year-old virgin has allowed her to live the "feminist dream." She describes how she had originally planned to be married at the age of 25 and have 12 children, one for each of the disciples in the Bible.
This week, in totally-normal-no-it’s-ok-that-this-election-is-a-giant-shitstorm news, a topless effigy of Hillary Clinton has been hung on a crane parked off of Interstate 5 in Sutherlin, Oregon. The effigy was made out of a black, rubber wetsuit dressed up in a pink bra and blazer, as well as a blonde wig. It was hung by a noose, which was attached to the crane — an effective image, if one lacking in subtlety.
In 2014, the mainstream media was introduced to director Ava DuVernay, who directed and co-wrote the critically acclaimed historical film Selma. After unveiling the film at the American Film Institute festival, Ava DuVernay soon captured the attention of both critics and the public alike with her revolutionary narratives told through black characters by black actors. Selma In February of 2016, DuVernay accepted her biggest directorial role yet, spear-heading the Disney remake of A Wrinkle in Time.

It’s always been challenging for women to excel, but it’s particularly difficult to be a Superwoman in the United States in 2016. Some Americans are being merciless about keeping a lady from leading the country. What are they afraid of? Change? There have been women leaders all around the world, but for the United States, which continues to hold onto the traditional roles, a woman in the White House would mean a change in the social fabric. Despite the backlash, Hillary Clinton still rises above it all.
Mara Wilson is used to people recognizing her — in fact, in college, she had a one-woman show called "Weren't You That Girl?" As a child, she starred in classic ‘90s movies including Mrs. Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street, and, possibly best known of all, Matilda. But as a young teen, Mara quit acting — and went on with her life, attending boarding school, then NYU, then entering the world of professional writing and storytelling. Now 29, Mara is taking control of her story with her engaging new book, Where Am I Now? True Stories Of Girlhood And Accidental Fame.
