"The title Public Speaking means that I endorse that I speak publicly," Fran Lebowitz says in the sneak peek of Martin Scorsese's doc about her career, "it's not a general directive… For a general directive, I really advise public listening." I think Fran's on to something. Check out the trailer and her interview with Joy Behar after the jump, and be sure to check out the premiere of Public Speaking, tonight on HBO at 10 PM EST. {source} <object ... Read More

It’s never been confirmed, but Nicki Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday sounds like a reference to the film Mean Girls, where the Plastics wore pink every Friday (maybe it was Wednesday). One may have nothing to do with the other, but on Nicki’s first album, she has a perfect balance of both mean and girly. While female rappers have spent decades swimming the mainstream in the hopes of never drowning, Nicki Minaj may have discovered the only working ... Read More
If there's one thing I'm known for around BUST HQ, it's my devotion to the one and only Boss--Bruce Springsteen.  So my delight was palpable when, during his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Tuesday, he and (Jimmy's impression of) Neil Young covered Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair." My favorite thing about this clip is that Bruce Springsteen is playing Bruce Springsteen. Enjoy (and whip your hair!)   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser ... Read More
  In the trailer for the new medieval (first of many mistakes!) stoner comedy, Your Highness, James Franco plays a straight man for some reason, Danny McBride plays the slovenly stoner brother, while Natalie Portman a sexy sex object who can beat up guys which is funny because she’s little and stuff. And Zooey Deschanel plays that classic female character, the one who appears to be held captive/bound for a good part of the movie, awaiting rescue. (If ... Read More

Congratulations to my favorite artist of all time, Patti Smith, who won the National Book award last night for her memoir, Just Kids. If you have not read this book, go get it! It's thoroughly entertaining and very inspiring. Here's a quote from the Times: "“I dreamed of having a book of my own, of writing one that I could put on a shelf,” she said. “Please, no matter how we advance technologically, please don’t abandon the book. There is ... Read More
Show and Tell, a new storytelling series based upon the classic kindergarten activity, combines storytelling elements with props to fill in the visual blanks. Founded and hosted by Brooklyn writer (and former BUST staffer) Colleen Kane, the first topic will be a juicy one: sex ed. Once a Playgirl editor, Kane has plenty to say about the unexpected things people find hot, telling Time Out, “My visuals will be mixed media of three varieties, and the audience ... Read More
