A few days ago, HuffPo Entertainment posted an interview with Evangeline Lilly from the premiere of the third and last Hobbit installment. She has a lot of nice words about working with Peter Jackson and being fortunately typecast in kick-ass female roles. She spoke of wanting to continue filling roles in which her characters are “strong because of their compassion, they’re strong because of their vulnerability, they’re strong because of their ...

If you haven't heard by now, singer-songwriter Annie Lennox has called out fellow performer Beyoncé for not being a "true" feminist. In a September interview with PrideSource, Lennox stated:
“I would call [Beyoncé] feminist lite… It's tokenistic to me. I mean she's a phenomenal artist... but I'd like to sit down (with her)... and hear what [she] truly think[s]. I see a lot of it as [artists] taking the word hostage ... Read More
Beyoncé slaying a variety of Topshop looks
Make way for the Queen! Make room in your closet! Beyoncé is officially partnering up with London-based clothing company Topshop for a new activewear line.
The collection, which is set to hit stores in Fall of 2015, will consist of clothing, footwear and accessories for dance and fitness, though stylish enough to wear on the street too. This is pretty ideal because my favorite look is dressing like I just ... Read More
“Have you ever been to Paris? Neither have I. Neither have I.”
Those are still the lyrics to Lizzo’s LIZZOBANGERS track, “Paris,” but they are not longer true for the rapper, whose debut album was named #1 Album of 2013 by us here at BUST.
With roots in Houston and Detroit, but now based in the Twin Cities, Lizzo told Jay-Z’s Life+Times that when she wrote the song, she had never in fact been to Paris. A year after her album ... Read More

Music is a very male-dominated industry, and when women do rise to prominence they are often pitted against and compared to each other, despite the fact that each queen is a unique snowflake and should be treated as such.
But once in a blue moon, all the stars align and three or more female powerhouses collaborate to create a club-banger that reminds the boys that these divas are not only fierce, but borderline superhuman when they work together. You better work, ... Read More

This week, did the Emmys put women on a pedestal, or did they knock them off of it?
Thanks to Queen Bey’s VMA performance this past Sunday, feminism is the f-word on everyone’s lips. A word that normally warrants skeptical and dismissive looks, Beyoncé and other celebrities are making it “trendy” through efforts to mainstream it. With that taste still fresh in our mouths, Sofia Vergara being displayed on a rotating ... Read More

It’s really frustrating that it sometimes takes super depressing PSAs to make us address our unsafe behavior and do something about it, but you should watch this one, even though it will make you cry your eyeballs out.
DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE BUSTETTES! Not that I’m accusing anyone of doing it, but I know firsthand that if you live in an area where you have to drive, you will most likely text and drive in your lifetime, and we're asking you ... Read More
