On Friday night, Elliot Rodger embarked on a shooting rampage, killing 6 people in I.V. Deli Market in California.  In the days following, Rodger’s 141 page manifesto, in which he described in detail his feelings of alienation and isolation from society, began to circulate on the internet.  Of course, we’ve all felt alienated and isolated before, but something drove Rodger to act on those feelings, and for some reason he felt that murder was the appropriate way to act out his anger with the world.   We...
I’ve been an intern at BUST since February and I have to say, it’s been a wild ride. When I started my internship, I knew that I wouldn’t have a difficult time finding stories to talk about (luckily women are so awesome and talented that there is always something new and exciting to share!)  But, as I’m about to finish my time at BUST, I can say I truly had no idea what I was in for.

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of BUST’s June/July Summer Music Issue, featuring the one and only Dolly Parton on the cover! We’ve got an exclusive interview with the icon, in which she spills the beans on her inspiration, her childhood, and, of course, feminism.

Plus, we’ve got killer fashion content, like the ultimate...
    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, oh my! SO MUCH SOCIAL MEDIA DEDICATED TO BABIES! I don’t know about you, but if I see one more baby picture on my newsfeed I might just go crazy. For some reason, mothers feel the need to document EVERY LITTLE THING that their precious little larvae humans do (clearly, I’m the motherly type). “Today little Johnny ate mashed potatoes- everyone must be alerted immediately!” * long exasperated sigh* Generation Z is the first generation of babies to have their lives methodically documented on...
