  In what we can only guess is an attempt to put together the most effing amazing awards show ever, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes. These funny ladies only get funnier when they’re together. Remember Tina photo-bombing Amy at the Globes last year? Or the 2011 Emmys? Or Baby Mama? Or SNL? The list of times the two have been brilliantly paired together goes on and on. The Golden Globes will air on January 13, 2013. Cannot freakin’ wait.      Image via hollywoodreporter. Read More
There have been many responses to the highly offensive (and incorrect) essay by Christopher Hitchens called “Why Women Aren’t Funny” that ran in Vanity Fair in 2007, and this oral history is the most comprehensive. We Killed chronicles the rise of female comedians ranging from the days of Mary Tyler Moore, up to the present successes of Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig. Read More
  What’s better than Amy Poehler? Amy Poehler rapping? Amy Poehler rapping with Tina Fey and Lindsay Lohan dancing in the background? Yep. This exists. This clip of Amy Poehler trying to rap the infamous "Kevin G" rap from Mean Girls during rehearsal for the movie recently surfaced on YouTube. Although Poehler is adorable, she fails to complete the rap again and again. (Which some may argue makes her more adorable.) Fey and Lohan’s back up dancing performance is strong. There is also an unidentified girl dancing backup who we’re incredibly jealous of. Read More
Tonight, I will be doing one of three things: high-fiving a million angels, working on my night cheese, or crying out of my mouth. I might even do them all at the same time. Why? Because tonight, the first episode of the final season of 30 Rock airs. While I'm looking forward to the new season, I'm devastated that it's over. In times of great strife like these, I feel that I must turn to music and/or dairy products for consolation. Luckily, BUST covergirl Tina Fey provided us with plenty of hilarious musical stylings over the past few years, both for her and her castmates. Read More
On a scale of one to obsessed, my love for the friendship that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey share would be labeled as “straight up obsessed.” So, you can only imagine my excitement when Vulture released this vintage picture of the two ladies hugging it out circa nineteen-ninety-something. According to Conan writer Brian Stack (via Vulture), it was taken at Lake Michigan in Chicago when the two did improv with Second City. Read More
They say what goes on the internet stays on the internet, and it's true: the stars of today were the dorks of yesterday, making silly videos of themselves and posting them to youtube only to have them haunt them for the rest of their days. As for those who were around before youtube, well, their videos have been posted there by other helpful celebrity sleuths. Here are our top 10 favorites, featuring some of our favorite lady celebs.   1.  Kat Dennings' video blog from 2006!     2. Madonna auditions for Fame, the TV Show, in 1982!   3. Read More
If you didn’t already know, Childish Gambino is the rapping alter-ego of Community star Donald Glover. His newest mixtape, Royalty, dropped yesterday, and it features RZA, Ghostface Killa, and Beck. But it's the voice who ends Royalty that really has us BUST-ies excited.  The fabulous Tina Fey appears on the final track, “Real Estate,” spitting some sick rhymes. Read More
Last week, we heard that the next season of 30 Rock will be its last. What’s more, the season will be short—only 13 episodes. But don’t worry: if you are experiencing the early stages of Tina Fey withdrawal, The Nerdist podcast has the remedy. This week, host Chris Hardwick shared an hour-long interview with Fey, which can be streamed online or downloaded for free on iTunes. Fey is possibly the most famous guest to ever appear on the weekly podcast, and Hardwick is notably fanboyish. Read More

30 Rock Gets Live

BY Intern Tessa in TV

Tonight, 30 Rock will take another crack at a live episode, meaning that we'll be biting our nails while we watch Tina and Alec perform without the benefit of sweet, sweet editing. According to the NBC plot synopsis, the show will center around TGS airing live shows vs. pre-taped ones-- very meta: "When their Kabletown bosses announce they will no longer pay for TGS to be a live show, Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy realize their lives will actually be easier if they shoot canned episodes fast and cheap.

  Remember that time when Christopher Hitchens wrote that whole ridiculous thing about how women aren’t funny? Yeah, I forgot about that too since I’ve been too busy laughing along with all the funny ladies who are staking their claim on the comedy scene. From Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who get us lizzing every Thursday night to Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and rest of the bridesmaids who made the prospect of getting food poisoning a lot more hilarious, women are proving comedy isn’t just for the boys.
