You may not be aware, but you are hurting yourself. Hurting yourself by not listening to First Aid Kit, an adorable and low-maintenance two-girl ensemble from Sweden. Reverse that  damage and dig into their kit for some grade a bandaging. They have lovely voices and play their own instruments to a blend of folk and indie that's truly a tonic. They cover Fleet Foxes! They harmonize! They wear sweaters in the forest! Check them out here , and let the healing ... Read More

Power Up Your Weekend

BY Team Intern in General

  It's getting late on a Thursday afternoon, and my guess is that it's that time of the week where you start daydreaming your weekend plans. Allow us to provide some smoke and fog to keep your head in the clouds. This Sunday, July 12th, the spectacular new Williamsburg Waterfront show series (at the new Jelly Pool Party Space ) is going all out with a show featuring Ponytail and Jemina Pearl of Be Your Own Pet (who both have graced the glossy pages of ...

        Lewis' newest release 'See Fernando,' a 60's spy-themed parody video full of backdrops with splashes of neon color, car chases, and slow-mo choreographed fight scenes. Lewis herself makes a debut about halfway through the video in an adorable retro Pan Am-esque flight attendant outfit, quickly transitioning into a short trench coat with oval shades and a breezy scarf around her head that keeps her identity under wraps. Yes, her style ... Read More
This morning Bruno visited the Today Show only to have an apparent snafu on air six minutes in and have the show quickly cut to commercial. Although before that, you can hear the staff of the Today Show laugh along to everything he says behind the camera. Interestingly, two days ago Sacha Baron Cohen went on Letterman for an interview, dropping his Austrian fashionista alter ego. Why the sudden flip when just a week ago as Bruno he was giving Conan a very ... Read More
This post goes out to all our pinup loving girls, and especially Celeste, the BUST intern with a love for peep toes and pumps, sweetheart necklines and lots of leg. Painted Pinups is a photo studio based out of Orange County that specializes in recreating the classic pinup looks of the 40's and 50's through individual photo shoots or group parties . Personally, I would love to have a pinup extravaganza for a birthday or bachelorette party. At the event, each ... Read More

Yoo Hoo!

BY Brooke Moreland in General

Have you heard of Gertrude Berg? Didn't think so. Unfortunately this feminist media mogul of yesteryear has completely disappeared from our consciousnesses. Thankfully, a new documentary, 'Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg,' is premiering this Friday in NYC that brings to light the life of this admirable lady. Gertrude was best known for writing, producing and staring in her own TV show in the 40s and 50s, Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg, which was the first character driven domestic ... Read More
Get this: a specis of Amazonian ants is saying 'no thanks' to men and sex for life. That's right, the rare species, known as Mycocepurus smithii, have actually evolved beyond the need for males in their population! The ants reproduce asexually by cloning themselves, and each ant population is an exact replica of the queen. Anna Himler , the biologist from the University of Arizona who led the research on the ants, explained that there are advantages to the ... Read More
Omg, you guys, have you heard about how much straight dudes love it when girls in knee socks kiss each other? And get all pushy and slick in a pool together with blood all over their prom dresses? And look deeply into the camera while moaning 'you want it?' and unzipping their sweatshirts oh-so-slowly? Well, someone in charge of marketing Diablo Cody's new cheerleader-turns-into-mass-cannibalistic-man-killer flick sure has. Trailer NSFW. Here at BUST we have a ... Read More
 Journalist Gbemisola Olujobi asks of cosmetic genital surgery, in her recent essay titled 'Designer Vaginas' : 'what are labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction if not female circumcision?' Well, damn. I never had made a connection before between the increasing trend for women in Euro-American countries to get procedures to make themselves more 'neat, clean, and tidy' and the not-dissimilar procedures performed on infants in many African countries--and ...
