As an obsessive SNL watching kid, I first noticed them- somewhere between the lead singer and the band were the backup singers. Almost always, there were three, in identical black dresses. One had an afro, and they stood to the side- they obviously weren't the lead singers, they didn't play instruments, and they certainly weren't in the band.    Sometimes there to add a campy Motown vibe a la Bowie's Young Americans, or ...

Former Bust intern, Buffi Jashanmal, was one of the designers called in to help design seven dresses for Lady Gaga’s upcoming music video. Avant-garde fashion label House of Diehl was asked to make the dresses in only five days, and Buffy was called in to help complete the nearly impossible task. Some designers pay up to $100,000 for Gaga to wear their clothes, so this is a huge deal for unknown fashion designers looking for a big break. The designers ... Read More

Day 1 at Sundance

BY Laurie in Arts

I arrived at Sundance, with photographer pal Bek Andersen, (in the beautiful park City UT) to a gorgeous Friday morning, and started our Sundance experience- or what Callie likes to call "grown up spring break!"So far it's been a adventure filled with movies, parties, long lines (no not those kind), altitude headaches, hot tubs, and an occasion star spotting. After picking up our badges, I went straight to wait in line to see my first movie of the day Kaboom, ... Read More
BUST loves female comedians. Specifically, we love women who can stand up on a stage and strongly speak the truth in a straightforward, funny, and accessible way, and not be afraid to push boundaries, take chances, and be vulnerable or sexy or simply themselves. And we laugh with them because on some level we identify with the truth of their words and worldviews. No matter how strange or bizarre their stories can be, there is a level of reality that we can look at ... Read More
Want to know why you are sitting on your 'fortune'? Then I will share with you a little bit of what has been published, just two days ago, on Italy's major newspaper, the Corriere della Sera. I'm an Italian girl and I happen to find the article quite sexist...maybe you can tell me what you think! Mr Piero Ostellino wrote an editorial about the Prime Minister of Italy, Silvio Berlusconi, and his most recent prosecution. A brief overview: Berlusconi is accused of ... Read More

Mormon Swingers?

BY Katie Oldaker in Sex

We here at BUST HQ love it when people interact with us on Twitter. (You can, too: we're @bust_magazine!) So when @MormonSwingers tweeted us this week with a link to their blog, we were intrigued.  The Mormon Swingers blog itself is basically just a sex blog but it has pages that discuss, rather in-depth, the balance of swinging while also being devoted to the Church of Latter-Day Saints. I think it's most important in this day and age of black-and-white on ... Read More

Can't Stop Pimpin' Portlandia

BY debbie in TV

I've been waiting for this day for weeks--the day that the rest of the country can finally experience Portlandia, the new comedy series on IFC of which we here at BUST are already die-hard fans. Start with Carrie Brownstein, she of everyone's favorite grrrl band Sleater-Kinney (who knew she was funny?) and Fred Armisen (ex-Mr. Peggy Olson and current SNL cast member) and add a good dose of laughing-at-ourselves irony, and you get what just might be the funniest ...

On IFC's Portlandia, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein lock Steve Buscemi in a feminist bookstore after forcing him to make a purchase for using the customers-only bathroom. Picking up something embroidered with a rotary phone, he says, "I'll take this wristband." "That's not a wristband, that's a coffee cozy," they reply in earnest. From dumpster diving to ear-plugged bike messengers to the Sherlock Homies, a hipster adult hide 'n seek league, the two are funny ... Read More
