The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has released its list of nominees and we are stoked to see three slots with women in them this year. Chaka Khan and Janet Jackson, as well as two members of Chic (Norma Jean Wright and Luci Martin), represent for the ladies this year but only make up about 21% of the nominees. This slim margin is unfortunately pretty standard for the RRHF, who only inducted ten women/women’s groups in the past ten years. That averages out to around one winning slot out of the four to six people/groups inducted as performers into the Hall of Fame each year. Read More
  There are many different ways to express and get hyped about sexuality. Knowing yourself, knowing your body, and knowing what feels gooooood is part of growing up, and it can be a never-ending process. Along with that process is the music you can jive to that uplifts you, boosts your confidence, and helps you realize, "oh, yeah, I like that." Whether you like your music fast, slow, dirty, or just beautifully honest, there is a bit of all of that here. Thanks to wonderful BUSTies sharing their favorite sexual confidence songs that they can get down with, you can rock on with them, too. Read More

It may or may not make you do a weird shoulder-jerking dance while you’re sitting on the train by yourself! Thanks to Gawker for the link. It makes me sad to think that some people’s main association with Janet is the Nipplegate incident at the Super Bowl back in 2004. Read More
So I have this insignificance of an Afro that I am trying to grow out, Angela Davis-style. Lately, though, I have been getting tired of looking at it. It's not that I hate it---I love my hair---but I have dyed it every color you can think of and I'm looking for something different and fun for the rest of the winter. Ever watch Poetic Justice? You know, the movie where Tupac and Janet Jackson make an intense love connection? Well, Ms. Jackson--cause I'm nasty--has these beautiful braid extensions in her head. Read More

Got Nips?

BY Olivia Saperstein in Feminism

If anyone was watching the Emmys on Sunday, you may have noticed Glee star Heather Morris' nipple slip on the red carpet.  This is hardly shocking news, as these fashion faux-pas seem to happen constantly in Hollywood. If you search "nip slip" online you can find pictures of various celebrities accidentally flashing some boob.  What I don't understand is why human beings are shocked over a little nudity these days.
