We were stoked to find out a few days ago that Office writer/actress/producer/director (seriously, the girl does everything) and BUST cover cutie Mindy Kaling was getting her own sitcom on Fox for next season.

Watch it here: [video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbxYId7KsL4 425x344]  That rom-com spirit and unapologetic love for girliness is quintessential Kaling (I just read her book, so I think I have the authority to deem something "quintessential Kaling"), and for that reason, I will...
A recent survey looked into how young women and men feel about condom use, and not surprisingly, a quarter think it's a "hassle." Even though we all know how important safe sex is, sometimes we need reminders, so let's all remember the myriad consequences for having unprotected sex. Mull them over for a bit.

United Bamboo’s now infamous cat calendar is back for its third year running, and for its junior effort, the clothing company is democratizing. Your cat (yes, your cat!) could be a super(cat)model and make her cat fancy debut in the 2013 calendar.

(best hashtag ever) The shoot is scheduled for June 9th in New York, so tri-state cats may have an advantage. Don’t...
