Monica Lynch, Tommy Boy Records with Queen Latifah Here at BUST HQ, we're super psyched for the return of The Get Down on Netfllix. But since that show is 80% about dudes, it made us think back to an amazing article we ran in 2007 about hip-hop's founding mothers, all of whom deserve to be celebrated and recognized, too. In 'Behind The Music,' writer Sabrina Ford interviewed five women who all helped bring the beat to the street. Enjoy this longread from the Aug/Sept '07 issue of...

Samantha Bee's latest video is dedicated to figuring out what the hell Ivanka Trump will be doing these next four years. Ivanka was recently given an official government position — Assistant to the President — and an office in the West Wing. So, what exactly does 'Assistant to the President' entail? According to MSNBC, 'Ivanka will be the eyes and ears in the White House,' to which Bee responds, 'If Ivanka's supposed to be her dad's eyes, she'll be spending a lot of time staring at her own boobies.' But...

When there are so many women afraid to walk, run, or jog by themselves, Lauren Elkin takes back the streets with Fl√¢neuse. Part history of walking, places, and people, and part memoir, the book tells the tale of the fl√¢neuse, the female version of a fl√¢neur. What is a fl√¢neur, you might ask? According to Elkin: "From the French verb fl√¢ner, the fl√¢neur, or 'one who wanders aimlessly', was born in the first half of the nineteenth century, in the glass-and-steel-covered passages of Paris... A figure of...

  Cher is the ultimate chameleon. There is almost no look she hasn't rocked or style she hasn't tried, but one thing has remained consistent: she keeps it real. From men to aging to self-invention, she says it how it is. Enjoy these quotes and photos that exemplify all things Cher. Honesty makes me feel powerful in a difficult world. Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great. All of us invent ourselves. Some of us just have more imagination than others. I've had...

Like a whole lot of you, if box office numbers are anything to go by, I recently went to see the 2017 live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast last week. While overall I enjoyed it, there were a few things that bugged me, and other things that, while not bad, per say, definitely stuck out. I decided to list a few of those things for you there — warning, spoilers, obviously. The Good• Belle and the Beast both get backstories, which are interesting and help develop...

If you follow Boss Hog, then you know Brood X is their first album in many years. In perfect rebellion style, the punk-blues fivesome continues to throw everything into their musical blender and turn it on high. The album opens with the raucous “Billy,” which could be your new resistance soundtrack. Songs like “Signal” and “Rodeo Chica” demonstrate the groups’ range, with elements of funk and rockabilly. “Elevator” is a standout with its scary, hell’s sermon chorus. Boss Hog’s sound has matured, but they’re just as defiant...

It’s rather unremarkable for me to begin this feature by claiming that the art world is a world that exists in a universe that’s anything other than considerably exclusionary. I think that, with that sentiment, I’m simply stating the obvious. The world of art, as well as every other cultural crevice of society, lends itself to habitual sexism, racism, classism, etc. You get it. I’m referring to the infinite list of the “isms” with which you’re familiar if you’re reading BUST. Whether you’ve taken an...

BUST darling and all around feminist badass Beth Ditto just released “Fire,” the first single from her upcoming album Fake Sugar. Due in June, this is her first full-length solo album and we couldn’t be more excited! Combining an ebullient melodic drive with a melancholy croon, 'Fire' is pure magic. Last year Ditto told Pitchfork, “It’s gonna be my Southern record but not necessarily a country record.” The Southern inflection couldn’t be more on point, blending a soulful gospel quality with a catchy alt-country vibe that...

Jon Glaser is wearing a floral bomber jacket and very little else. Striking a pose on a ladder, he could teach Derek Zoolander a thing or two about male modeling. But once our photo shoot is over, the 48-year-old bundles up in a plaid jacket and shares tips about the best brand of insoles before settling down in a small Greenpoint, Brooklyn, cafe to chat over tea—he's trying to cut down on coffee.If you don't recognize Glaser's name, you definitely know his face. He's Jeremy...
