Most people who indulge in shows like The Bachelor and Jersey Shore don't take them seriously. In fact, most people I know who watch reality TV, watch it  almost sadistically, as they are enjoying the act of hating it. New Research from the Girl Scout Institute is proving that these popular TV shows may have more of an effect than we may think. The study took middle school and high school aged girls and asked reality tv viewers and non viewers questions about their lifestyle, behavior, and mentality.

The BUST book tour is officially kicking off this weekend and we're very excited to be heading out to Bushwick on Sunday afternoon to visit Mike Edison and Judy McGuire and to talk about our new book on The Mike and Judy show.We'll be streaming live at 2pm on this crazy thing they call the internet radio.

"It's impossible," observes Nigel Slater, "not to love someone who made you toast."   So begins Toast, an odd, colorful new film about food and love, and based on the English chef's memoir of the same name.  Slater's observations on both topics, read in voice-overs, bring humor to what is otherwise the story of a very sad childhood.   The story opens in a grocery store, where young Nigel (played by Oscar Kennedy, then Freddie Highmore when he grows up) is following around his lovely mum (Victoria Hamilton).  Mum is a wonderful person and a horrible cook.

                 Every teacher I’ve had since I was about ten years old has been giving me the plagiarism speech. It’s ingrained in my brain. Never steal someone’s words without giving them credit. In print the rules seem clear, but what if it’s something like a dance move? It seems like copyright gets a little more difficult to define.

It is rare to attend a concert that is truly life-changing. Last night I had the honor and privilege to attend "An Evening with Patti Smith," at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, and can honestly say that I left the show with the desire to become a better human being.  The show was being held in conjunction with her accompanying exhibition Patti Smith: 9.11 Babelogue at the Leubsdorf Art Gallery. Smith was joined on stage with 40-year accompanying guitarist Lenny Kaye, as well as her daughter Jesse Smith on piano.

  Japan is always releasing cool things, but probably one of the coolest and trippiest is Hatsune Miku--Hatsu (first), Ne (sound), and Miku (future) is a name meaning "the first sound from the future". Miku is a Japanese Pop idol and she isn't even real! But, that doesn't stop her from having sold out concerts in Japan, L.A., and an upcoming concert in Singapore.She sings, she dances, and she does all this with an awesome set of flowing aquamarine pig tails. The "girl" can own an audience. Just watch in the video below of her single "World is Mine": [video:http://www.youtube.

Ryan Gosling is the hot ticket of the moment and with good reason. After seeing Half Nelson, Drive, and..even The Notebook, I was not only impressed with his acting, but also quite smitten with his charm so it's no surprise that I'm totally obsessed with the hilarious memes of Fuck Yeah! Ryan Gosling and the adorable video below of Ryan Gosling himself reading the "hey girls" out loud.

Dita Von Teese, in my opinion, is one of the most stylish women in the world so it was only a matter of time before she started designing. She is set to launch her debut limited edition five-piece collection, Muse, later this month. The collection will feature couture-inspired detailing and, best of all, will be available in sizes 8-20. “Offering a collection that caters to women of all sizes is very important to me,” Dita explained. “Muse is designed to complement a multitude of body shapes, so every woman can celebrate her natural beauty and feel sexy in a gorgeous dress.
