As BUST intern Michelle previously wrote, Amy Poehler (BUST cover girl in our DEC/JAN 2009 issue) keeps getting more awesome, and I have to agree.  Even in the midst of her recently announced divorce from Will Arnett (something most of us here at BUST are devastated about), Amy was able to give some more amazing advice to girls who are experiencing body image issues. In the latest “Ask Amy” video, a young girl wants advice because she feels like her body issues are preventing her from loving herself.

Add some punch and pizazz to your boring white dress shirt with collar clips, my must-have accessory of the year. Most collar clips are easy to put on and take off (providing a quick and temporary way to get two shirts out of one), and you can find some reasonably priced ones at consignment stores, etsy.com, and ebay.com (tip: search for "collar tips" in addition to "collar clips"). For even more punch and pizazz, try putting collar clips on patterned dress shirts. Vintage Gold Tone Collar Clips, $2.68, jolasvintagefinds.etsy.

About Cherry is a lot of things. Part porno, part love story, and part coming of age story, it leaves the viewer caught in its jumble of tones. About Cherry tries to cover too much territory in just an hour and forty minutes, leaving dangling story lines and underdeveloped characters. Cherry is the porn pseudonym of high school dropout Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw). At home, Angelina deals with an alcoholic mother and a boyfriend who walks around the apartment looking annoyed, but is probably supposed to seem threatening.

If you’ve ever read the comments on an article or blog post even slightly related to feminism, you’ve probably come across plenty of troll-y arguments.      “Feminists hate men!” “You just enjoy being offended.” “You’re being silly and overemotional.”     Now, you can turn all your comment-induced rage into fun with the Interactive Feminist Bingo Card! The card places troll-y comments on a five-by-five bingo card. When you click on a comment square, you mark it with a female gender symbol.

If you’ve ever been turned down from a shitty food service job you found on Craigslist…  If you’ve ever programmed your ex into your phone as “Don’t Pick Up FO REALZZZ THIS TIME”… If you instantly hate anyone who asks what you do for a living… In short, if you’re in your twenties, then this book is for you.   F*CK! I’m In My Twenties by Emma Koenig, based on the popular blog fuckiminmy20s.tumblr.

The three members of Pussy Riot who are currently imprisoned (Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich) are fighting against being relocated from Moscow to a remote penal colony somewhere hundreds of miles away.  There’s a possibility of the three women being set free on October 1 when they’ll head back to court to find out if their two year prison sentence has been repealed.  The women don’t seem to think this is a likely outcome considering the government is still upset with their past brazenness.

Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Emma Watson, and now…Adele? British Vogue reports that Adele may collaborate with British luxury fashion house Burberry on a plus-size line.     According to British Vogue, Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey personally approached Adele to become a Burberry ambassador, and Adele responded by asking if Burberry would collaborate with her on a plus-size collection. Her request seems pretty reasonable. If Burberry asked Adele to represent them, they should probably start carrying more clothes that might, you know, fit her.

    The Interwebs is all a-flutter about these new photos of Amy Poehler with a maaaaan, out on the town in what, at first glance, is some sort of sexy late-night social situation. But while we love to see our comedienne girl crush Amy P. hitting the town, we're pretty sure this "mystery man" is NOT a new flame--it's fellow comedian and internet star, John Roberts.

  She’s baaaaack… The one and only Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott is about to return to the scene with her seventh studio album, tentatively titled Block Party.  Missy gave us a little taste of what is to come via “9th Inning” and "Triple Threat," tracks from the upcoming LP featuring her longtime friend and collaborator Timbaland.

A lot of things come to my mind when I think of James Cameron. Kickass director. Deep-sea explorer. But defender of female action heroines? Not at the top of my list. Maybe it’s because of his notorious hair-trigger temper on set, or perhaps his string of infidelities and failed marriages--the two most high profile being to Katherine Bigelow and Linda Hamilton--but somewhere along the line I forgot that this was the man responsible for such legendary badass female characters as Ellen Ripley (from the Alien series) and Sarah Connor (Terminator).
