Last night, Adele performed "Water Under the Bridge" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and reminded us one more time why she is music royalty. Listening to her new album 25 on repeat is the norm for me at the moment, so seeing her perform live is an extra special cherry on top of my pumpkin pie. Between her flawless-every-time eyeliner and poignant performance style, plus lyrics that basically penetrate the soul, Adele's performance on Fallon just makes you feel all the feels. Read More
ADELE'S NEW ALBUM, 25, IS FINALLY OUT and this morning, I woke up nice ‘n’ early to pay the queen my respects and a crisp $10.99. Spoiler alert: it was BEYOND worth it.  In fact, I suggest you pause your life, open your preferred Internet browser and buy that shit right now. Read More
With her new album, 25, coming out on Nov. 20 and people everywhere singing "Hello from the outsideeeee" way too loudly from their showers and cars, Adele is finally emerging back into the spotlight where she belongs. In her first big interview about her new album Adele talked to Rolling Stone's Brian Hiatt and declared that she is indeed a feminist. "I'm a feminist, I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality," Adele told Rolling Stone.  "I'm a feminist," she says, sipping wine. Read More
It's been four long years, but Adele is back with her new single and music video, "Hello," from her upcoming album, 25. The long-awaited release comes just in time to get us through the dark months of rain, wind, and the holidays. Don't worry! If the "Hello" music video is any indication of what's to come, Adele will be there for us ladies with more power anthems--inspiring shower singers the world over. According to the 27-year-old songstress, 25 - out November 20 - is a make-up album, not a break-up album. Read More
Last Friday night, the Tinderbox Music Festival celebrated its fourth year with performances by seventeen kickass female artists at The Music Hall of Williamsburg. Founded by singer/songwriter Alyson Greenfield in 2010, the festival serves as a platform for up and coming female artists. With acts like Deerhoof, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Awkwafina (featured in BUST & a performer at our 20th Anniversary Party), this year did not disappoint. Read More
I’ve seen most of the nominated films, watched the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, and now the pressure is on for The Academy Awards on Sunday. This year’s nominees are filled with phenomenal women with diverse ages, looks, and levels of experience in the business. The category that is perhaps the most conflicting for me is Best Actress. Who do we root for: 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, 86 year old Emmanuelle Riva, up-and-comer Jennifer Lawrence, Bin Laden headhunter Jessica Chastain, or two-time nominee Naomi Watts? My pick is Jennifer Lawrence. Read More
  With the new James Bond film, Skyfall, opening in theatres on November 9th, it’s time for a new jam to accompany it. As one of the most successful artists to come out of the UK, Adele was the obvious choice to sing the signature theme song for this installment of the franchise. And of course, her classic lady-crooner sound works perfectly with the classy feel of the Bond films. Read More
Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Emma Watson, and now…Adele? British Vogue reports that Adele may collaborate with British luxury fashion house Burberry on a plus-size line.     According to British Vogue, Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey personally approached Adele to become a Burberry ambassador, and Adele responded by asking if Burberry would collaborate with her on a plus-size collection. Her request seems pretty reasonable. If Burberry asked Adele to represent them, they should probably start carrying more clothes that might, you know, fit her. Read More
VH1 counted down their list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music last week, and while I feel some ladies were overlooked and others given a spot they shouldn't have, I do applaud VH1 for recognizing the contributions that female musicians have made to the music industry. The list spans the past two decades— wow, has it really been that long since the 90s? Many of the ladies on this list broke musical barriers, fighting their way into arenas that were usually male-dominated, and their influence paved the way for some of this generation’s greatest performers.

I have totally and completely fallen in love with Adele, the Cockney-accented diva (or diva-to-be, as the already-celebrated songstress is only 23 years old). Though I am still mourning Whitney, I was giddy about how elegant Adele looked in her vintage-inspired dresses while winning  6 Grammys last night (including the coveted Album of the Year award for 21). My friend commented that Adele was channeling fellow foxy Brit Kate Winslet with her new blonde 'do, and I had to agree. She was f*cking fierce. Read More
