I’m going to make a blanket statement: any time Amy Poehler is on TV, I want to be watching. Live, recorded via DVR, or streamed online –  it doesn’t matter. Everything she does gives me life. Which brings me to her appearance on Wednesday's episode of Late Night, where Poehler and current host Seth Meyers joined up to revive their infamous segment “Really!?!

We will assume you’ve finished binge-watching season three of Orange Is The New Black by now (I haven’t, so no spoilers or I’ll cry) so you must be as madly in love with Ruby Rose as we are here at BUST.

Calling all broads! In a recent video interview, the women of Broad City Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer dished about the making of season two of their hit Comedy Central show. The duo discussed taking the show to absurd levels, achieving a recognizable New York City, and most importantly of all, pegging.

We all know how it felt when Beyoncé dropped an album straight from heaven into our laps without advance notice in 2013. The shock and unbridled joy of that moment can never be replicated, but when Netflix released the third season of Orange Is The New Black six hours early during primetime last night, our reaction was just as joyful. The news first broke via an announcement by Netflix bigwig Reed Hastings during last night’s invitation-only Orange Con event, held in New York City. Read More

Feminists do what they want, so we’re going to wax poetic about her SOME MORE.

He tells Jezebel that we need to make it “okay for people to fuck up” when talking about feminism and intersectionality, particularly in conversation with people who are new to these social justice issues. “It’s this dangerous, slippery slope where, sometimes if you aren’t an expert, people want to crucify you, you know?” he says.

Like most of us, Jemima Kirke, of Girls fame, has had her fair shares of struggles with body image. She may be on a TV show where characters are known for getting naked, but that's not where her body concerns began: In an interview with Kelsey Miller of The Anti-Diet Project in Refinery29, she talked about her struggles with body image and self-acceptance. Kirke recalls, “‘My mom used to say to me, 'I think you’re beautiful. I think you’re perfect. I just want you to be happy.'" ... "That's such a mixed message, though... Read More
