Courtney Love has a new song out via Ghost Ramp: “Miss Narcissist” is classic Courtney, confrontational and acidic. Love is touring with Lana Del Ray this summer, part of Del Ray’s “Endless Summer” tour, and “Miss Narcissist” seems perfectly suited to the arena. Like much of Love’s best work, her new tune is both a sly commentary and an anthem, sure to be heard in bedrooms and stadiums alike. Listen here. Artwork by ... Read More
Inside Amy Schumer has been pumping out material that manages to make you laugh and make you think at the same time. The newest skit is no exception. If TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras has taught us anything, it’s that the world of child beauty pageants is not as pretty as the kids competing in it are made to be. Amy Schumer parodies the show with her own edition: Babies and Bustiers. Schumer stars as Amy Mayweather Sherman, a not so little (thanks to Fetal ... Read More
  Huffington Post’s new interactive feature, inspired by badass artist Sophia Wallace’s Cliteracy project, takes us on a mind-blowing tour of the clitoris. The feature provides readers with history, anatomy, and a discussion of the culture surrounding sex education today (plus lots of awesome videos).    “[Cliteracy] is a mixed media project that explores a paradox; the global obsession with sexualizing female bodies in a ...

Mad Max: Fury Road opened in theaters this weekend to positive reviews citing impressively strong female characters: The Independent’s critic described it as “a very unusual re-boot” in which “Theron matches [Hardy] for sheer kickass malice and resourcefulness.” But not everyone was pleased about an action movie featuring bad ass heroines who can beat up just as many people as their male counterparts: Men’s Rights Activists ...

After weeks of speculation on how the TV series Mad Men would end—most of it glaringly wrong, some of it surprisingly close—those of us who have seen the actual finale are left to ponder the question: What did it all mean? Here at BUST, however, the answer is pretty clear. The biggest difference from the '60s, when the show began, to the early '70s, where the show wraps up, can be summed up in a single word: Feminism. And the impact of that change ... Read More
Bad news for anyone who still uses their velvet-embossed, rainbow-colored Lisa Frank pencil case: The Lisa Frank corporation is not “upset so much as disappointed” that Frank’s artwork has been co-opted by the Feminist Lisa Frank blog, which is obviously an awesome explosion of bright colors, kittens, and female empowerment. The Lisa Frank Corporation has a history of messy PR: Jezebel ran a story about “the rainbow gulag” and ... Read More
  I walk into the House of Vans Brooklyn Venue on a Saturday afternoon. A spattering of bass and drums fills the drafty warehouse full of skate ramps, expansive space, and a performance stage. On that stage is Kathleen Hanna and The Julie Ruin. The band is here to kick off their summer tour and they're in the middle of a soundcheck. Hanna greets me with a casual wave that melts away any nerves about speaking with this group of feminist ... Read More
Here at BUST we have very important conversations; we question, we discuss, we argue, we throw things. But this week there was a doozy of a mystery; an anxiety-ridden, lip-biting, hair-tearing, earth-shattering question that has kept us all up at night. What will happen during tomorrow night's Mad Men finale? Here are a few of our theories. Caution: SPOILERS AHEAD!!  Don Draper Really is D.B. Cooper, and Matthew Weiner is Fucking with Us A couple of years ... Read More
