Three in 10 women will have an abortion by age 45, so there's a good chance you either know someone that’s had one, or you’ve had one yourself. Despite its commonality, abortion is still a controversial topic, and the current administration has further escalated the debate over women’s reproductive rights — for example, Trump's suggestion that women who have abortions should be punished (which he later took back), and Pence's pledge to overturn Roe V. Wade. One of the ways that a society’s view of abortion...
Earlier this year, Simon & Schuster announced that Hillary Clinton publish a book about the 2016 election. This morning, more details were released, and they kinda feel like a punch to the stomach. The book is called What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton (I’m glad she kept the Rodham in there, because she took it out for her campaign book Stronger Together), and the cover is very simple. The title is in blue on a white background, while the byline is white on a blue background,...
We can all relate to quickly reading through those choose-your-own adventure books that let us make our own decisions as kids, without any adults telling us what was right or wrong. Now there’s a humor-based, illustrated grown-up version of the very same book type – In a Daze Work: A Pick-Your-Path Journey Through the Daily Grind, written and illustrated by Siobhán Gallagher. Just released earlier this week, the 160-page book covers the everyday decisions and scenarios that make up our lives as adults, from awkward small...
The California-based dark post-punk/deathrock band Ötzi is back with their first-ever LP (ready to be released this fall), and we are thrilled to premiere one of their songs, “Charms.” “Charms was inspired by fading fear-based traditions and how we still relate to them in our lives,” band member Gina Marie tells BUST. “In the video we decided to focus on the flip side of fear, and asked our friends to show off their own good luck charms and symbols of hope.” Their official music video shows people showing...
Wonder Woman was the first superhero movie directed by a woman, and that rare superhero movie to star a woman, and it completely dominated the box office. So it’s not a complete surprise that Wonder Woman 2 is happening, but we are excited, nonetheless! Variety reports that Warner Bros. has announced that Wonder Woman 2 will premiere on December 13, 2019. (We know, it's a long wait!) Patty Jenkins will again co-write the script with Geoff Johns, who oversees the DC film universe for Warner Bros.  Here’s what...
Lana Del Rey inspires pretty mixed reactions among BUST readers and staff, but a recent interview in which she says that she uses witchcraft in attempt to rid the world of President Trump may make you like her a little more, if you’re not already a fan. Del Rey released her latest album, Lust For Life, on the waning crescent moon...the same day that witches worldwide took part in a binding spell intended to prevent Trump from doing harm. On a previous waning crescent moon on...
Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen has become known for her snarky, funny tweets — and one of her favorite targets is Donald Trump. Which is understandable, because he is truly, truly terrible.   But unlike many Trump tweeters, Teigen is playing the long game here. BuzzFeed points out that she was trolling Trump as far back as 2011. Behold, Teigen's first Trump tweet: Teigen talked about her Trump tweets in an interview with USA Today earlier this year. She said: "I've actually been a big Donald Trump hater (for...
Patient H69 by Vanessa Potter is a sensory experience, which might surprise some. Losing the our most dominant sense, sight, gave Potter a whole new world to explore. With a form of synesthesia coming into play, readers are granted a whole new way to look at things. Potter noted down all these differences and experiences in her blog called Patient H69, which would eventually become this memoir. One day in 2012, Potter — a very successful producer — wakes up and suddenly can’t see. Everything is...
If you know your punk history, you know the name Alice Bag is one of significance. As a Latina, and as frontperson and vocalist of the iconic band the Bags, Alice Bag pioneered the Los Angeles punk scene in the 1970s. Breaking into an underground scene, which predominantly consisted of sweaty white dudes thrashing about, Bag was confrontational, political, and brazenly feminist. She paved the way for artists, particularly women and people of color, who aspired to make music that deviated from and aggressively defied...
  Instagram star Bunny Lucille is bringing curvy pin-up cartoon Hilda (illustrated by Duane Bryers) to life with beautiful, body-positive photos that recreate the 1950s illustrations. While she modernizes some of the pictures, like swapping out a mirror for an iPhone selfie, she gets other details down to a T, like bikinis made of flowers, a slice of watermelon with exactly two bites, and an unbuttoned red onesie. Even though she has 50,000+ followers, she still has to deal with the criticism from trolls. When one hater...
