Just when you thought that social media couldn’t possibly get any more invasive, there’s MyFreeImplants.com—a site dedicated to helping ladies obtain free breast implants over the Web. Well, not free, exactly. The surgical bills are footed by male benefactors (their term), other members of the site who bestow donations upon women via email.      Founded in 2005 by a couple of Nice Guys, MyFreeImplants.com has reportedly helped nearly a thousand women obtain the tits of their dreams.

Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed is making history by opening Europe’s first feminist and gay-friendly mosque. This mosque, situated east of Paris, welcomes the LGBTQ community and encourages women to lead prayer. So-called “inclusive” mosques exist in the U.S., Canada, and South Africa; but this is a first for the European continent. In 2010, Zahed helped establish Homosexual Muslims of France, a society that seeks to defend LGBTQ rights. The association has grown from six members to over three hundred in only two years. Zahed expects membership at the mosque to quickly climb as well.

This past summer, Fleetwood Mac warmed our collective heart cockles when they announced that they’d be reuniting for a smattering of shows in 2013. The promise of a few shows was enough to set Fleetwood Mac fans a-tweaking, but the reality has turned out to be even sweeter. The band will tour a full 34 cities this go-around, beginning April 4th in Columbus, Ohio.    It’s only been three years since the band last hit the road, but excitement for the upcoming tour is already skyrocketing among fans.

Today marks the release of a new remix package from Tori Amos and Peter Rauhofer. The four-track EP, Flavor - Peter Rauhofer Remixes, was culled from Amos’ most recent album, Gold Dust. Rauhofer is a club mix veteran, having created remixes for the likes of Madonna and Cher, and earning himself a few GRAMMYs along the way.    Gold Dust features new recordings of songs from Amos’ prolific repertoire, performed by the Metropole Orchestra. The Flavor EP, in turn, re-imagines these orchestral tracks for the dance floor.

It’s no secret that we love Angel Haze here at BUST. She’s one of the most versatile hip-hop artists out there, unafraid to tackle deep sadness or go ovaries-to-the-wall aggressive with her lyrics. Now she’s trying her hand at house: “Hell Could Freeze”, a new collab with London-based drum-and-bass quartet Rudimental, is a moodily gorgeous track that navigates the ups and downs of love. Angel’s rap is still on point, but her fuzzed-out hook, layered over an alternately shimmery and spazzy beat, is the gorgeous centerpiece that holds the track together.

Former House Speaker and Lunar-colony enthusiast Newt Gingrich will guest star in an upcoming episode of Parks and Recreation on NBC. Gingrich will be the latest in a recent flurry of political heavy-hitters to appear on the show. Other recent guests include Olympia Snowe, Barbara Boxer, and Senator John McCain. Even Vice President Joe Biden and his dazzling choppers have graced Parks and Recreation with their presence of late.

Jim Batt, the animator behind the Amanda Palmer music video “Want it Back”, has released a new short animation, “I Have Your Heart”. The film is a collaboration with New York artist Molly Crabapple and musician Kim Boekbinder, otherwise known as The Impossible Girl.  The idea for “I Have Your Heart” was hatched back in 2010, when Crabapple and Boekbinder decided to combine their visual and musical art forms into one project. When Batt hopped on board, the process of creating the film began.

  Sosan Firooz, the first Afghani female rapper, has recently been hit with a spate of menacing text messages and phone calls demanding that she stop performing.  “If your daughter appears on TV again,” one caller said to her mother, “we will cut off your head.” This seems nuts—but considering recent news from her home country, it doesn’t seem impossible. Sosan, 23, performs with her hair uncovered in front of both male and female audiences, and she openly criticizes the Taliban in her songs.

  A press release featuring a new line of lingerie in the style of Victoria’s Secret made its way onto the web this week, featuring a slew of slogans and phrases heralding the importance of communication and consent between sexual partners. And while it would be lovely to imagine that this is evidence of Victoria’s Secret responding to recent criticism by making an effort to push a consent-based message, the phantom line of panties appears to be an unaffiliated knockoff.
