Get ready for some heavy duty LADY DRAMA folks, the new bio pic about Piaf is out today and it is a must see! Marion Cotillards performance is stronger than an over-ripe Epoisse, and I mean that in a loving way. Even die hard fans will be amazed by the crazy life of La Mome, from her childhood years spent in the circus and then a whorehouse, to her later years as a full blown junkie. Go see this immediately and you will have "no regrets.

 This past Tuesday night, BUST celebrated the release of our June/July issue the best way we know how- with a party! It was such a success that some of us are still recovering and finding bruises. BUSTies started lining up as early as 6:30 to get their hands on one of the 200 BUST goodie bags which disappeared in under just 10 minutes! First, our very own Emily Rems' punk band, Royal Pink, got things going right by completely packing the show area and getting people on their feet.

It's no surprise that BUST readers know how to get down. Last night's issue release party at Union Pool in Brooklyn was a smashing success full of fresh beats, sick jams, and lots o' BUSTy love. Today at HQ, we relied on a few key elements to get us through the day: too-good-to-be-true mac n cheese and Iggy Pop on repeat. Dawn will be blogging all about the party tomorrow but until then, feast your eyes and ears on this awesome snippet of gospel singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe. She was a hit in the '30s and '40s, shakin' up the music world with her rockin' soul.

 Last Sunday, Associate Editor Lisa Butterworth (above left) and I (above center) went to the UH-MAZE-ING Mode Merr Fashion Brunch, held by feisty fashionista Angela Zampell (above right) at the delightful Marion's Continental. As we sucked down pink drinks and gorged ourselves on french toast, a bevvy of impressively-clad models, including BUST faves Angie Pontani (below left) and The World Famous  *BOB* (below right), worked the runway to hoots, hollers, and plenty of appreciative cheers from the heavily tattooed audience of glamour grrrls and rockabilly boys.

 Today was a sad day at BUST HQ, three of our working-hard-for-no-money BUST-ies are leaving. With such a small staff, we rely on our interns for everything. From fact checking to fashion shoot pick-ups, these labies have their youthful paws in everything. We get them for at least 3 months at a time and for at least 3 days a week. It's revolving door of dank-ness, constantly changing. Poor Deb Stoll has seen so many ‘terns through the years she has trouble remembering them all.

I recently had the pleasure of being invited by the folks in ANFAO and the Italian Trade Commission to check out all the smashing new eyewear in Milan at their annual trade show.

  Welcome to summer ya'll.

If you're a Brazillian woman and you wind up with an unintended pregnancy, you're SOL—abortions are illegal in this South American country, although 800,000 are performed illegally every year, and result in the deaths of 4,000 women annually. However, now there's some good news: President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva yesterday announced to his thong-clad nation that he's going to subsidize birth-control pills so that they are affordable to anyone who wants them.

I just got off the rag. That means all this week has been about cravings. More specifically, chocolate cravings and the box of “Lady Pink Banana Milk Graffiti Bars” that rolled through BUST HQ from Alison Nelson at Chocolate Bar NYC. At $4 a bar it costs as much as a box of tampons but who cares because bananas have potassium and I heard that helps put some stop to your cramps. Also, we all know chocolate helps with everything. So, this week has been painfully delicious! I was internetting Lady Pink to give you a hot pick of her hand-style.
