Women out-earn men only in the “personal care” sector of the workforce. Even though the pay gap is currently the smallest it’s ever been in the US of A, it’s kind of baffling that this imbalance...

Do you love Draw Something, the Pictionary-esque smartphone game, as much as we do here at BUST? I started strong in the game, trying to draw recognizable pictures, but at a certain point, I just gave up trying. But Sarah Sitkin is a player who doesn't take this game lightly.

In my head, the executives of movie and TV studios are conniving, soulless people who tap their fingers together while squashing creative ideas and forcibly removing the soul of every good show. Turns out, they are less "evil Mr. Burns from The Simpsons" and more "Ministry of Truth from Nineteen Eighty-Four," carefully misleading the public with euphemisms and propaganda.
