RuPaul, of all people, should know the value of a climax. So why then was last night’s "finale"of RuPaul’s Drag Race so unbelievably anti-climactic? Because they didn’t announce a winner! Ugh, this show. I think we all sort of saw this coming, because the title of the episode was "The Final Three," but still. If the prospect of finally finding out what Willam did wasn’t enough to drum up an audience for the reunion episode next week, this definitely is.  For the final challenge, the remaining contestants starred in a music video for RuPaul’s song "Glamazon.

Ladies: Don’t you love it when you're on your way to work or the hardware store, or just taking a relaxing stroll on a nice day, and someone approaches you to express his desire to boink you? You don’t? Me neither! Instead of using your just-purchased screwdriver to dole out some street justice, you may soon be able to use a new iPhone app to deal with these annoying a-holes.

It’s no secret that we love us some tough ladies here at BUST. So Melanie Fiona’s latest video for her track “Watch Me Work” is right up our alley. The video is a jarring, fast-paced mash-up of TV and movie clips. It features iconic ladies in pop-culture like Pam Grier in Coffy, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in Kill Bill, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in their “Bitches get stuff done!” clip from SNL, and Tracie Thoms in Death Proof, making the video practically scream female badassery.

  If you own a computer with an Internet connection (as we assume you do, since you are, in fact, reading this blog) you are aware that today marks the birth and death of William Shakespeare. In honor of the birth of the Bard, here are five movies that take a page from his book. 1. 10 Things I Hate About YouBased on: The Taming of the Shrew Julia Stiles was my alt-girl icon in this 1999 film. And the scene where Heath Ledger serenades the football stadium? Nine-year-old me was in Swoonsville, USA.   2.

Tonight could be your lucky night, BUSTies. It's World Book Night in the UK, Ireland, and the United States. The daytime will see UNESCO's International Day of the Book, which falls yearly on April 23 in honor of Shakespeare and Cervantes' deaths. When the sun sets though, self-appointed "givers" will take to the streets and pass out books to lucky unsuspecting passersby. The givers registered with the World Book Night organization and received 20 specially-produced, not-for-resale paperbacks prior to tonight's celebration.

When the New York Times does a trend piece, it sometimes comes about 3 months too late. Remember their string of pieces about Brooklyn in 2010? Apparently it's a cool place to live! Young people like it there! Or their February 2012 article about living alone? We do crazy things! Like singing in the shower! And eating peanut butter from the jar! Yesterday though, the Times went for cool and hit it right on the head.

Did y'all know one of the biggest discussions when Earth Day originated in 1970 was the now-taboo population boom? It's true! Since the 60's, the world's population has doubled to over 6 billion and the environmental, social, and humanitarian crises we're facing today can be largely attributed to unchecked growth in our numbers. This topic is uncomfy for people to talk about because all the issues surrounding it: access to family planning, religion, and gender inequality. The documentary Mother: Caring for 7 Billion aims to end this silence before it's too late.

This week has changed my life-no joke. It’s been the best week of my life so far. - Camper, age 13 I really learned how to rock out for real and it felt awesome. - Camper, age 13 Are you a young girl ready to rock? If so, now is the time to break out your… pen and paper (to apply!). The Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is now accepting applications for their July and August rock camp sessions in Brooklyn (July 2 – July 7) and Manhattan (August 20 – August 25).

Jack White really is playing up his upcoming album. Titled Blunderbuss, his first-ever solo album is currently streaming for free on iTunes. (For anyone baffled at the title, you’re not alone; I had to Google it, and a “blunderbuss” is a kind of gun. So there you go.) Now, I’m a huge fan of White and all of his musical ventures (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), so my opinion is probably super biased, but Blunderbuss is freakin’ awesome.

With Earth Day fast approaching, the internet is all abuzz with sustainable crafts designed with our beloved planet in mind.  We're all taught at a young age how reduce and reuse should come before recycle, but somewhere along the way I think a lot of us forget the first two. Here are a few projects that reuse former trash. They are so simple, the laziest person in the world (yours truly) can do them, so you have no excuse. C'mon. Don't you love your Mother Earth? You never call, you never write….
