The highly-anticipated (by me, anyway) sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race will premiere February 2014 on LOGO. “It's our most outrageous and sickening cast to date," assures RuPaul. "And quite frankly, I'm scared of these queens.” Oh snap! Let's meet the 14 drag queens who will be coming to your TV (and your heart) in just a few months.   Image via Pinterest Adore Delano / Azusa, CA @AdoreDelano "I'm a mermaid and I grew up singing so that the ...

  I have a pretty kick-ass job: editing some of the creativity books is part of my job at Perigee Books. I’ve gotten to deliberately spill coffee on the publicity materials for Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal. For Michelle Taute’s Fold Me Up, I spent hours at my desk tinkering with old-school fortune tellers, making sure they all folded in a way that would do my inner fourth-grader proud. (And if I find myself with a creative block, I can ... Read More
Like a fanzine come to life, "The Punk Singer," directed by Sini Anderson, is a tender and totally absorbing documentary portrait of Kathleen Hanna—beloved riot grrrl frontwoman of the bands Bikini Kill, The Julie Ruin and Le Tigre.  The film is brimming with expertly edited archival footage and behind-the-scenes glimpses of Hanna’s private life. Viewers not only get to watch her find her voice in the feminist art-punk scene of the early ’90s, ... Read More
November 23, 2013 will be a day forever fixed in time and space for Doctor Who fans--or Whovians, as they affectionately call themselves. Saturday the 23rd marked the 50th anniversary of the dearly beloved and longest running sci-fi show of all time.  Such a special occasion was this that at precisely 2:50 P.M. (EST), the show was simulcast in theaters across 80 countries. For those who love the time lord and his Tardis (the blue police box he travels in), ... Read More
As the daughter of Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt, I was raised on the stories of grunge lore. Tales of criss-crossing the country in dilapidated tour vans full of sweaty rockstar hopefuls, record signings at legendary stores like Rough Trade in England, members of Pussy Galore being frightened when greeted by our pet pygmy goat; Kurt Cobain smashing his guitar and leaping off speaker towers. Our family photo albums show a very chubby baby on tour in Japan and ... Read More
Boobs have been big this year! No, wait, I mean it’s been a big year for boobs in pop culture. Some years, not much happens with famous racks—perhaps an ambitiously plunging dress or two, or the discovery of a new kind of cleavage, like “side-boob.” In other years, breasts are upstaged by vaginas. After all, they don’t enjoy the same urban-legend mystery that surrounds other so-called private parts. (Remember when Paris Hilton would ... Read More
Many have claimed to be “the hardest-working man in show business,” but in the case of drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the title may actually be true. “The only things I have time to do are everything I have going on,” he explains between rehearsals for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in N.Y.C., where as bandleader of the legendary hip-hop/soul group the Roots, he musically directs the coolest house band on TV. “In a ...

I know that Clare Bowen, the 24-year-old actress who plays Scarlett O’Conner on ABC’s Nashville, is a native Australian, but when she calls me from Tennessee, I’m still surprised when I don’t hear a sweet southern drawl on the other end of the line. It’s a testament to how seamlessly Bowen slips into her character, a wide-eyed singer/songwriter on the verge of blowing up on the country music scene. Along with Connie Britton (Friday ... Read More
Last Friday night, the Tinderbox Music Festival celebrated its fourth year with performances by seventeen kickass female artists at The Music Hall of Williamsburg. Founded by singer/songwriter Alyson Greenfield in 2010, the festival serves as a platform for up and coming female artists. With acts like Deerhoof, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Awkwafina (featured in BUST & a performer at our 20th Anniversary Party), this year did not disappoint. But it wasn't ... Read More
