We at BUST would like to wish a very happy birthday to the legendary Grace Jones! Jones started her modeling career shortly after immigrating to New York when she was 13. Her androgynous appearance catapulted her to international recognition, appearing on the covers of Vogue and Elle while working with fashion houses like Yves St. Laurent. She forayed into the music world in 1977, when she signed with Island Records, and went on to release many popular albums. Jones also acted in many mainstream films; her...

Here at BUST HQ, we’ve been talking about the late great comedian Phyllis Diller because we’re working on a story for our next issue about the Smithsonian’s quest to digitally transcribe all 52,000 of her meticulously catalogued jokes. Truly, she was a pioneer of the female punch line. And nobody appreciated her more than superfan Amy Poehler. When we asked Poehler back in 2007 to interview Diller on the occasion of her 90th birthday, she jumped at the chance, and the results are a bright spot...

BUST’s April/May cover gal Solange is now Teen Vogue’s cover gal, for its music issue out May 23. Side note, can we keep Solange on magazine covers year-round, every year, please? Instead of an interview, Teen Vogue features a letter/poem Solange wrote to her teenage self, and it’s beautiful. She begins with both poignancy: there will be fear. a lot of it. there will be triumph. a lot of it. there will be constellations you want to reach for but can’t put your finger on. you will trace them...
