Comedy Central officially announced today that outspoken comedian Roseanne Barr is next in line to be Roasted, joining the list of the network's former Roastees which include Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and Betty White. Not only has the feisty feminist delved into the world of reality television, sitcoms, and film to name just a few, but she’s also BUST's very own advice columnist with an endless supply of sass under her belt.  In regards to the highly-anticipated roast, Roseanne remarked, “All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of...

Joan Rivers has been making us laugh while criticizing everyone (and their mom) since the 1960’s. She’s made a career of calling the stars out on their appearance and poor fashion choices in the least delicate way possible. No one is safe—we all get it, it’s her shtick. Read More
Growing up in the late 60s, one of my feminist heroes was Batgirl from the Batman TV show. The character Barbara Gordon,  librarian by day, quickly morphed into her alter ego Batgirl when trouble arose. She was sexy, tough, rode a motorcycle, got to wear a fabulous costume, and kicked major butt. Played by  Yvonne Craig (seen here), check out this PSA demanding equal pay for women. Read More

New Girl's New Grille

BY Intern Christina in TV

Just in case Zooey Deschanel's presence on your TV screen on Fox's fall hit New Girl, iPhone Siri commercial, or SNL as a host was not enough adorkability for you, her face now may be on a bus in a city near you. Today the New Girl Facebook page announced the "True American" bus tour, which will kick off labor day weekend in Boston and move on to New York. The tour's name clearly comes from the show's infamous patriotic drinking game, to which the rules are still unclear. Perhaps we can learn on the tour, since it looks like every major city in America will be getting a dose of Zooey and Co. Read More
Summer in the city is perfect for bicycle rides to work or to the park. The wind gets all breezy and you’re going so quickly you don’t have to worry about weird extended eye contact with anyone. I didn’t think bike rides could get much better, until I saw Ninian Doff’s short, “A Professional Display of No Handed Bike Moves.” Set to the infectious song “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks, a few experienced lady and gent cyclists perform a variety of impressive, expressive, and hilarious hands-free gestures.

“I think most people haven’t seen sexy in a wheelchair” –Mia  The Sundance Channel’s new series, Push Girls, documents the lives of four friends living in Hollywood--Angela, Auti, Tiphany, and Mia. No, they aren’t rich housewives, celebrities with a sex tape, or former B-list actors trying to make a comeback: they are paraplegic and quadriplegic women, and they are out to dispel any of your previously contrived notions about life in a wheelchair with in-your-face confidence.

Timeless Seasons is a new shopping network that has all of the products you could ever dream up: powerful pepper grinders, convenient teeth whiteners, portable entertainment systems, and more! Except the grinder makes flatulence sounds when you twist it, the whiteners kind of turn you into a zombie, and the entertainment tablet causes high-pitched interferences. In fact, it isn’t a shopping network at all. Timeless Seasons is a comedy trio of three funny ladies who sell fake products in hilarious skits posted on their website. Read More
In my head, the executives of movie and TV studios are conniving, soulless people who tap their fingers together while squashing creative ideas and forcibly removing the soul of every good show. Turns out, they are less "evil Mr. Burns from The Simpsons" and more "Ministry of Truth from Nineteen Eighty-Four," carefully misleading the public with euphemisms and propaganda. Read More
Anderson Cooper did not light any children's dolls on fire, but he did kick a Barbie off his show. A real life Barbie.   On Tuesday, Sarah Burge, dubbed the "real life Barbie" because of her extensive plastic surgeries, chatted with Cooper on his show. Cooper, known to most to be a pretty nice guy, and even known to break down from time to time in a fit of adorably contagious giggles, became visibly angry when the two began to discuss Burge's daughters.

We recently spread the word that HBO's Girls was changing up its season 2 cast by adding comedian/rapper/actor/pretty much everything ever Donald Glover, and now we have news that they're changing up the cast even more. This time, it's with hipsters.   Not exactly the kind of diversity the critics were talking about, but still a change of pace. It's pretty expected for the show when you consider its location (New York) and cast (post-grads and college kids). Read More
