In case you missed it, late last week, a man’s Instagram post about how much he loves his “curvy wife” went viral — first, for being so “inspirational,” and then, because people were making fun of how this dude thinks that being attracted to a woman who isn’t a size zero makes him a Feminist Hero (TM). Here’s the post, by Robbie Tripp, who describes himself in his Instagram bio as “Husband to a curvy goddess”: Instagram/Robbie Tripp The text reads: I love this woman and her curvy body....
When I wrote my first memoir, I’m With the Band, there were very few “unknown” women out there penning their life stories. But I knew I had lived widly and well, and wanted to share the tale of a young woman caught up in the ’60s rock ’n’ roll revolution, smack dab in the thick of the madness. A few years later, I penned a second memoir, Take Another Little Piece of My Heart: A Groupie Grows Up, an unrepentant chronicle about what comes after...

Jenny Slate’s track record in entertainment is proof that she is versatile and brilliant. She seems to approach interviews as conversations with friends rather than carefully analyzed responses that would be functional rather than genuine. In her interview with Marie Claire, she takes a step further in that direction and discusses her last interview with New York magazine, which led to a lot of publicity she wasn’t expecting. With Slate’s growing list of noteworthy roles in movies like Landline and Obvious Child, she has been moving...
Lolita Files, African-American author, screenwriter, and producer, is cool as fuck. She hustled in the corporate world for almost 10 years after college, then gained overnight success after sending her work to an agency on a whim, just because she had researched that they were John Grisham’s agent.She’s now a New York Times Best-Selling author, and her book Child of God (for which Kanye once had the rights, Lolita has them back) is now in the curriculums of high schools and universities across the country....
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Sicario and Hell or High Water) completes his loosely linked American West trilogy with his directorial debut, Wind River. Travelling deep into the mountains of Wyoming, this film has all the traditional makings of a thriller. Though, more importantly, Wind River highlights the issue of undocumented violence against Native American women. In short, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) discovers the body of a young girl buried deep in the snow-covered wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation....
Halle Berry's new road-bound thiller, Kidnap, opens with a montage of home videos of a baby boy, Frankie, (narrated by an off-screen Berry) as he grows from squishy infant to super cute and still squishy toddler. No one else makes an appearance in the clips, and it becomes evident that the baby and his mother are on their own, with the child's father nowhere to be seen.  During an outing with her son, Berry’s character, Karla, literally takes six adult steps to the side to answer...
Multidisciplinary artist Carolee Schneemann is a fearless feminist force. Considered one of the most groundbreaking artists of the second half of the twentieth century, Schneemann (interviewed by BUST for our April/May 2017 issue) has created “groundbreaking paintings, photographs, performance-art pieces, and installations that expose deep female secrets, pleasures, fears, and taboos.” From extracting and reading a scroll tucked inside her vagina to powerfully protesting the Vietnam war to dancing with other nude performers while playing with various substances, including wet paint, raw chicken, and sausage, Carolee...
“All good nights begin with karaoke and they also end with karaoke.” - Jimmy Fallon We already loved actress and comedian Bridget Everett, but now we love her even more after she kept it real and fun on NBC's The Tonight Show earlier this week. She appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk show for the first time on August 1, and talked about her career – first starting in karaoke and then moving up to the cabaret/alt-comedy scene of New York City. She also elaborated on her life...
