In an interview with Jezebel, baby-faced OITNB actor Matt McGorry discusses feminism, something he has spent the last couple of years learning (and tweeting) about. “For lack of a better term, I’m balls-out,” he says. 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
Last Saturday evening, the still-beloved cast of Gilmore Girls joined the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino for a reunion at the ATX Television Festival. After the theme song played with much of the audience singing along, Sherman-Palladino and the Stars Hollow gang spoke about how the show came to be, filming experiences, and where the characters are now.  Flavorwire got an exclusive interview, and here are five exciting things we learned from it: 1.

They’re made of sugar, spice, everything nice, and some Chemical X – and they’re coming back to the silver screen in 2016.

The only media released so far is the above photo, depicting the new voices of Townsville’s resident guardians: Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li and Natalie Palamides. Tom Kenny will reprise his role as the Narrator-Mayor. Read More
Will & Grace’s Karen Walker, played by the incredible Megan Mullally, is know for being rich, drunk, and pretty hot. Karen’s willing to take down anyone who gets in her way, but is also a loyal friend. Although her clever quips are more famous for their wit, she also dispensed some solid advice during her nine years on screen. If she ever did cease working for Grace (which, let’s be real, she never would), we think she would be a pretty great motivational speaker. Let the inspiration (in, of course, Karen's trademark nasally voice) commence. Read More
After weeks of speculation on how the TV series Mad Men would end—most of it glaringly wrong, some of it surprisingly close—those of us who have seen the actual finale are left to ponder the question: What did it all mean? Here at BUST, however, the answer is pretty clear. The biggest difference from the '60s, when the show began, to the early '70s, where the show wraps up, can be summed up in a single word: Feminism. And the impact of that change was made abundantly clear in each of the closing stories for the three main female characters: Betty, Peggy, and Joan. Read More
Here at BUST we have very important conversations; we question, we discuss, we argue, we throw things. But this week there was a doozy of a mystery; an anxiety-ridden, lip-biting, hair-tearing, earth-shattering question that has kept us all up at night. What will happen during tomorrow night's Mad Men finale? Here are a few of our theories. Caution: SPOILERS AHEAD!!  Don Draper Really is D.B. Cooper, and Matthew Weiner is Fucking with Us A couple of years ago, someone posited the very insightful theory that Don Draper may have been based on the real-life D.B. Read More
Last Thursday night, The Daily Show's Samantha Bee bid a tearful goodbye to the Comedy Central show. Bee, who became the longest serving Daily Show correspondent in 2012, is leaving to start her own satirical news show on TBS with her husband, fellow correspondent Jason Jones. Bee will serve as the host and executive producer of the show, which is about a family road trip to Florida and will feature her “smart and satirical point of view (on) current and relevant issues,” according to the cable network.

“From the forest… out of dirt and sticks” emerged Khaleesi dressed as Kristen Wiig. Wait, it's actually Kristen Wiig dressed as Khaleesi on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon—and it couldn't have been more hilarious. Neither Fallon nor Wiig—who have unparalleled platonic chemistry—were able to hold it together during last night's seven minute segment. And between the newest hit “Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful” and Rapid Fire Questions, it’s easy to see why. Read More
Amy Schumer killed it again in episode two of Inside Amy Schumer's third season, with the satirical music video and social media movement “Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup.”   The song opens with adoring lines reminiscent of boy-band pop sensations like One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” insisting that the Schumer doesn’t “need” makeup.
