Number One Lady, Michelle Obama, graced us all with her presence in James Corden’s "Carpool Karaoke" last night and it was as incredible as you’d expect. The two jam out together, dancing and singing to Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, and Missy Elliott — who — surprise jumped into the car to groove and sing with them!! It was the best. Missy didn’t even bother to buckle up, she was strutting her moves too hard. But, groove is not all they did.

It can be difficult to find fashion bloggers that break the mold of society’s strict beauty standards – AKA, white, tall and thin, and cis-gendered – but there are plenty of beautiful, body-positive bloggers out there who are embracing their diversity and absolutely slaying the alternative fashion game.

This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music.
  Sometimes imitation is NOT the finest form of flattery. It's just stealing. Zara, better known as overpriced basicland for hipster yuppies, has just added itself to the list of brands that rip off independent artists and mass produce their work. This time, the victim is Tuesday Bassen, an LA-based graphic designer who creates these incredible images. Here are some of her awesome pieces: Erase You patch, $10 Girls Pennant pin, $10 Heart Lolli patch, $12 Keep Out pin, $10 They're pretty adorable, right? Well, it seems like Zara thought so, too.

Tameca Jones, a soul-pop songstress, hailing from Austin, TX, has a voice that will make your heart melt. She has been creating music and performing covers across Texas for years, but now, we can thank our lucky stars because Jones released an EP, titled Naked, chock-full beautiful, mesmerizing hits.

There’s some good news in the world today, everyone—no I’m not kidding—and it means a little less hate on the Internet... let's hope. Milo Yiannopoulos, AKA the notorious islamaphobic, racist, misogynist, Trump supporter who recently rallied his followers to spew racial hate at Leslie Jones just got permanently banned from Twitter. In the past couple days, the deeply offensive comments about Jones’s appearance in the new Ghostbusters forced her to leave the platform, as Yiannopoulos and company whipped hateful messages at her constantly.
Portrait of Princess Dagmar of Denmark with her Dog, 1860s. In January of 1865, a young charwoman appeared at the Lambeth Police Court in London seeking assistance from the magistrate after having been attacked by her employer’s favorite dog.  A January 7 edition of the Kentish Independent reports that her employer’s name was Miss Mary Baker, “a maiden lady of over 70 years of age.”  Two years prior, Miss Baker had inherited a substantial fortune, the bulk of which she now expended on “feeding and keeping” a large pack of dogs inside of her house.
As a writer inhabiting this world in a female body, I am SO sick of seeing lists of “must-read books” that feature predominately cis-male authors. Talented and innovative women-identifying authors deserve as much exposure as basic dudes like Tom Clancy or Dean Koontz or whatever balding white man is hogging the shelves at Barnes and Noble with the same, repetitive stories. I’m. Over. It. Chances are, as a BUST reader, you are, too. But have no fear.
