  I’m surprised it took me this long to write my first cute baby animal post at BUST, but I’ve finally made it! And I’ve saved myself for something that is epic levels of precious, so brace yourselves: it’s a kitty in little knitted costumes. STOP, MY HEART! This poor little baby, named Wasabi-Chan, got attacked by a crow in early June, resulting in a split tongue, fractured jaw, and had to be fed via catheter tube. SADFACE! Luckily, Wasabi-Chan’s rescuer found an innovative way to limit the kitty’s...
    Amanda Seyfried rose to prominence as the girl who was blessed with ESPN boobs in Tina Fey’s brilliant Mean Girls.      She was just shy of 20 when the movie blew up, and now, almost a decade later, her career has all but followed the same progression.  Between her turn as flaxen-haired, honey-voiced Cosette in the critically acclaimed Les Miserables, and her upcoming role as porn star Linda Lovelace – Ms. Deep Throat herself, Seyfried is unquestionably killing it.      With such audacious roles under her belt, it’s refreshing to...

Lee donated her stool to her Gene (not his real name). Yes, you read that correctly. Her stool. Gene had been suffering from ulcerative colitis—and when I say suffering, I mean it: a colon ridden with bleeding ulcers, causing intensely painful cramping, bloody diarrhea, and...
For those of you who don’t know Carla Bruni, she is a quick-witted Italian-French songwriter, musician, model and the former First Lady of France. I randomly came across her music about 8 years ago while working on a short film about a French girl in New York and I loved it without even knowing who the hell she was. It’s a little jazz, a little pop, a little romance and a little wild. For me, I don’t need to understand the words to get down...
