Last night on Full Frontal, our favorite White House critic, Samantha Bee, went after Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity who met for the second time yesterday. The mission of this committee is to investigate the 3 million illegal voters that Trump claimed caused him to lose the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Despite no evidence to support that this claim, Donald J. Trump just refuses to let this shit go. Samantha Bee cracked, “Those mythical three million illegal voters are...

  This week, the internet barfed with excitement at the news that Mindy Project mastermind and star Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child. Naturally, the entertainment world is salivating over the fact that Kaling is single and is not revealing who her child's father is. But here at BUST HQ, we're just happy for her, wishing her well, and enjoying imagining what a great mom she'll be — with or without a co-parent. The news also inspired us to revisit this cover story we did with...

By the time I finish writing this, Galen Hooks, L.A. based choreographer, producer, dancer, advocate, and more (a lot more), will likely have flown 238,900 miles to the moon, performed a killer dance routine in a pair of jet black stilettos, and made it back to New York in time to teach an afternoon intensive class. But that’s to be expected from an extraordinary dancer. For Hooks, busy days (sans space travel) packed with dance classes, intensives, traveling around the world, and helping dancers reach their full...
Based in Chicago, visual artist Laura Berger’s work emotes a space of calmness, yet playful, through her execution of balance and symmetry. Either existing in solitude or intertwined into another, all tiny naked bodies existing to serve a bigger picture, further defining and exploring the human connection. With acrylic and gouache on wood panel, Berger’s pieces explore peace and solitude, while not straying from strength in an all-female space. Berger explains, "I'm interested in and inspired by rituals, symbols, nature, dreams, travel, our quest for self-development...
There’s no right way to portray Eating Disorders in film and television, but there are many wrong ways. Netflix’s new film To The Bone, while well intentioned, brings nothing of substance to the table.

Peppermint, the recent runner-up of RuPaul’s Drag Race, said she's struck by the fact she doesn’t have any home movies. “I've had a lot of amazing experiences, and some of them I don’t even remember,” she said. “I thought, ‘What would happen if my Facebook disappeared?’” This is part of the reason she wanted to start documenting her life on film. “Project Peppermint,” a working title, is reaching the final days of crowdfunding and aims to shed light to Peppermint’s life as a drag queen and a...
