  You heard it here! This stylish songstress is BUST's August/September cover girl - AND she's releasing her highly anticipated album The Electric Lady on September 10, effectively making her the Q.U.E.E.N. of the world. We’re all thoroughly excited for her reign. It’s no surprise that we’ve been in love with the starlet’s smooth croons and funky tunes since day one. Our affair reignited when she partnered up with Erykah Badu in early May for the song that made us dance to all of its feminist, hair-whipping, confidence-boosting...
Recently, there’s been an all-out Twitter war between two of our favorite feminist women: Jezebel writer and comedian Lindy West, and BUST columnist and comedian Roseanne Barr.   The debate focuses on the subject of rape jokes—when it’s appropriate to tell them, and what the appropriate response to them should be.   The flames started after Lindy posted a story on Jezebel, called, “If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting So Many Rape Threats?” It was about the response she received after...

In fact, I've discussed this at length over many mojitos: What defines a creep? According to a recent article...
  Woah, Nellie! We’re in the future! A few years ago I discovered 3D printing - some friends of mine got into it, printing their own jar lids, toys, bolts, and even their own parts to build their own printer. But personally, I think new inventions gain their validity when they can be used to better the world. Like when they can print a new foot for a one-footed duck. Meet Buttercup, a young, fluffy duck who was born with a backward foot. He had immense trouble walking...
