Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience. In Episode 7, "The Handmaid’s Tale!" available now, the gals dig deep into the...
The viral and creepy phenomena of Two Sentence Horror Stories is transcending to the big (short film) screen. Director Vera Miao says she was inspired by the popular Reddit thread to create a series of short films, the first of which is MA, featuring a strained mother-daughter relationship that complicates a blossoming romance with another woman.  The Internet trend dubbed "Two Sentence Horror Stories" is exactly what it sounds like, two sentences that tell a spooky story. Miao's series follows the same format with one sentence appearing on...
The Wonder Woman movie is almost here! So why haven’t we heard about it? Marketing for Wonder Woman has been astonishingly low in comparison to some of the other DC-Warner Bro films. Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, which is almost one month away and yet there are only three trailers on Warner Bros’ Youtube page. Let’s compare that to Marvel’s upcoming Justice League film, which has six videos. The Justice League movie is set to come out in November of 2017 and yet...
In 2014, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o sat front row at Miu Miu's show during Paris Fashion Week. Last weekend, this photo of them from the event went viral on Twitter.  It all started when k, or @1800SADGAL, wrote that—with her yellow fur, dark shades, and blunt bangs—Rihanna looked "like she scams rich white men." And Lupita, who wore chunky glasses and a collared shirt,looked like Rih's "computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans [sic]." https://twitter.com/1800SADGAL Lupita was immediately down for this. So was Whiplash producer Helen Estabrook,...
Here at BUST HQ, we’ve been chatting a lot about actor Elisabeth Moss lately. First, we jubilantly extolled the many feminist virtues of her new Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale, on this week’s episode of our Poptarts podcast. But we were subsequently startled and dismayed when we heard about the show’s panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Fest, in which Moss seemed to cavalierly dismiss the show’s feminist thesis despite the fact that at its core, The Handmaid’s Tale is a cautionary fable about what happens...

  Mumbai-based photographer Victoria Krundysheva's project "The Witch Hunt" has us entranced. In a series of haunting photographs, Krundysheva creates a modern-day exploration of medieval-era witch hunts. She photographs women along with captions about how to spot a witch — for example, "You need to know – they don’t drown, so be on lookout for women who even after you threw them in the water and pushed them under are still emerging, stronger than before." In her artist statement, Krundysheva writes, "Photography to me is my personal...
Three powerful new memoirs by women have caught our attention for their common theme — and vastly different perspectives. Ayelet Waldman explores the benefits of microdosing; Cat Marnell writes about addiction; and Kelly Osbourne writes about growing up in the spotilght and dealing with substance abuse.   A Really Good Day: 
How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life
By Ayelet Waldman(Alfred A. Knopf) Ayelet Waldman’s A Really Good Day is an account of the author’s month-long experiment using minuscule amounts of LSD to...
It’s no secret that the film industry, in particular, documentary making, is heavily dominated by men. When the credits roll after your favorite documentary, more often than not a man’s name will follow under the title of “filmmaker” or “producer." That is not the case for Sylvia Frances Films, the production company started by documentarians Joanna Sokolowski and Kate Trumbull-LaValle. Both women met in a graduate film program. “We both had an interest in making films about women and women’s experiences,” Kate told BUST. While...
A Madonna biopic called Blond Ambition was recently picked up by Universal Studios. The problem? Madonna herself is not so happy. The singer took to Instagram to express her distress over the production, posting, “Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society.” The post included a picture of herself from her early...
The crowds of C2E2 were roaming the floor dressed as some of their favorite superheroes, meanwhile, I was upstairs at a press conference with some real-life superheroes who just happen to be the biggest names in lucha. If you are unfamiliar with lucha, lucha is a form of wrestling that brings in all the theatrics of WWE with a dash of Latino culture, and El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground is king of lucha TV. Launched by Robert Rodriguez and producer Mark Burnett in 2014, Lucha...
