In its ninth year, Notorious MSG is a rap group “with a hip hop brain and punk rock heart.” Members Hong Kong Fever, Down-Lo Mein and most recent addition Hunan Bomb met in Chinatown in Manhattan and formed the trio to rap about women, the gangster lifestyle and Chinese cuisine and restaurant culture. Formerly featured in BUST’s Men We Love issue, the Original Chinatown bad boys are dropping their new album, “Heavy Ghetto,” on May 24. Read More
In its third season, French police drama Engrenages, known as Spiral to English-speaking viewers, is another gritty police drama teeming with all the usual installations: murder, drugs, corruption, sex, violence, but with one kick-ass leading female character: police captain Laure Berthaud.   Newly instated as France’s newest pinup, Caroline Proust’s character Berthaud doesn’t wear makeup, doesn’t wash her hair and wears the same clothes multiple days in a row, which by French standards makes her a total babe.

  The Lonely Island have joined forces with Snoop Dog to bring us their latest single, “Turtleneck & Chain,” the title track of their new album.

The Lonely Island tell us all about how fancy turtlenecks, thin gold chains, and drinking light beer in public improves both their public persona and their sex lives. Read More
I don’t know how many times I’ve almost tripped on broken sidewalks and holes in the ground. It’s not only annoying and possibly dangerous, it’s not very pretty! Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to change that and create some adorably unusual (& colorful!) street art. Read More
The 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival has finally screened it’s last flick, and as the dust settles, it’s time to look back and appreciate some of the female directors whose films were among the fest’s most exceptional work.

I’m not embarrassed to say that as a kid the character of Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls” was a hero of mine. I’ve also clocked in a fair amount of time watching old “Mary Tyler Moore” reruns in awe of Sue Ann Nivens. I was entirely convinced that I could learn all I needed to know about being a lady by letting Betty White teach me. At 89, Betty White is still killin’ it. Last year she received a lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild. She’s won seven Grammies. Read More
 As much as I loved the excitement of McQueen on Middleton, the fashion from last night’s opening of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in conjunction with the annual Met Gala is more exciting to me than all the royal wedding dresses or oscar gowns in the world! You see less celebs playing it safe and instead bringing real glamour to the red carpet. I’m glad to see that just because it’s spring, the time of simple, flirty frocks, everyone still brought the drama. Read More
Whenever a movie with a girl protagonist comes out, I try to see it. Usually, I get excited that it might be good/actually about an adolescent girl, and come home pissed off, or, at best underwhelmed. In the past few years, it has become almost a trend to have little girls as the unlikely focus of a film (Note the tagline in the poster above: "Young. Sweet. Innocent. Deadly.") Sometimes the young girl's innocence serves as a foil to her crazy, violent surroundings a la Pan's Labyrinth or Tidelands or Let the Right One In. Read More
I’m not sure where this came from in the tumblr universe. I traced it back as far as tumblr blog, kayliafisher, but I thought the creative readers of BUST would enjoy this fun D.I.Y. nail project! One blogger, Lost In Drawers, gave it a try with some really cute results. She also noted what she would do different in her blog post. In an attempt to find the originator of this idea I’m glad I found one more cute blog to add to my blogroll! (A Texas one at that!). Here are the D.I.Y. Nail Directions: cut squares of newsprint larger than nails. apply a base coat of polish. Read More
  Ever wonder where that sexy lady silhouette via trucker mudflaps came from? Fashion designer Ed Allen has come forward as the guy who called her Mom. Now trademark owner, Allen claims that his father, Stewart, a long-haul trucker originally created the image to decorate his rig with his wife, Rachel Ann’s likeness.  The original photo was a vacation picture of Allen's mom in a bathing suit on the beach.
