Jennifer Lawrence (AKA everyone’s fantasy BFF) spoke with the press after her Best Actress Oscar win and was, obviously, wonderful. Lawrence’s perpetual goofy sarcasm and flat refusal to engage in any media nonsense make her a favorite not just of the Academy, but of us all. Who else could trip up the stairs on the way to retrieve an Oscar and, by doing so, make us love her even more? Since her first Oscar nomination for Winter’s Bone, Lawrence's endearingly frank personality has made her...

OK. We get it. Seth MacFarlane is super audacious and doesn't give a crap who's offended by his comedy. A lot of the time, we love him for it. But seriously, what was with all the sexist nonsense at last night's Academy Awards? It seemed like every other punchline out of his mouth was engineered to be as smugly degrading toward women as possible. And it wasn't just sexism—for good measure, he sprinkled in some racism and homophobia, as well.  Before the telecast had even drawn...

Iceland, a famously web-savvy country, could become the first Western democracy to instate a national ban on internet porn. The nation’s interior minister is working on new legislation that would make it impossible for citizens to access porn on the Web, and Icelanders are understandably outraged.  Proponents of the legislation say that their aim is to protect the children of Iceland. They assert that what they take issue with is not necessarily sexual content, but violence. “[The legislation] is anti-violence because young children are seeing porn...

Every once in a while, a cookbook will make its way into BUST HQ that makes me go, Holy Shit! I need to make something in here IMMEDIATELY! This was definitely the case when I got a look at The Lotus and the Artichoke, a gorgeous new recipe compendium by Justin P. Moore.  An amalgam of Moore’s three main passions: travel, photography, and vegan cooking, Lotus dazzles with over 100 exotic recipes culled from time spent in over 40 countries. And unlike most cookbooks on the...
