This exclusive interview is from BUST's Feb/March 2015 issue, on stands now! Female fans around the world are downright obsessed with 
Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s hit comedy series Broad City. Here, the pair gets real about Girls, plays “Fuck/Marry/Kill,” and recalls how Amy Poehler made them freak out Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are two of comedy’s hottest stars, and they are about to drive a convertible off a cliff. Rather, they are sitting in a borrowed convertible and they are not driving it at all,...
  Put every collaborating musician from super producer Emile Haynie’s We Fall into one room, and it would be music’s version of 2015’s “SNL 40” special. At first glance, the list of guest appearances in the Saturday Night Live special seemed ridiculous, hyperbolic.

A 19-year-old male college student cited "Fifty Shades of Grey" when he was charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old female student.

And the fact is that your job is to keep babies healthy...and you can’t keep a baby healthy that has gay parents?” The family...
A Dutch nonprofit called the Mars One Project announced in 2013 that they were accepting applications for a one-way ticket to—wait for it—Mars. Over 200,000 people jumped at the opportunity, putting together their audition tapes and answering questions. Many of them were surely under the impression they wouldn’t make it through the first couple of rounds. Now there is a small pool of just one hundred applicants, and Sonia Van Meter is one of them. In a recent Time opinion piece, Van Meter speaks candidly about...
