Check it out and follow 'em here! ... Read More
Newsflash: the mainstream media isn't always kind to women, particularly when it comes to their physical appearances. Thankfully, some celebrity ladies use their fame as a platform to fight the media’s (and our culture at large’s) damaging obsession with women's waistlines and butt sizes–Ashley Judd’s totally awesome rallying cry against tabloids comes to mind. And now Scarlett Johansson, in the Huffington Post, has attempted to join the ... Read More
And the year continues to be totally excellent for funny ladies. Earlier today it was announced that Ellen DeGeneres would be receiving the 15th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Her "unique brand of humor" and ability to find "hilarity in the mundane" has helped her join the ranks of past winners like Whoopi Goldberg, Lily Tomlin, and Steve Martin. She acknowledged the honor in her typical Ellen-ish way, saying, "To get the same award that has been ... Read More

BUSTies, Mother's Day is upon us, and it's time to honor all of the mamas in our lives--both real and fictional. Here, for your reading pleasure, are five of our favorite TV moms. Enjoy!   Clair Huxtable, The Cosby Show In my humble opinion, Clair Huxtable is the perfect TV mom.

To say that there’s been cultural debate about HBO’s Girls would be a major understatement. Journalists, TV critics, and bloggers alike have all put in their two cents about its shortcomings–its apparent lack of racial and ethnic diversity in particular. Girls, which is written (and directed and produced) Lena Dunham, focuses on the lives of four close twenty-something friends as they live and attempt to make their way in New York City. Those ...

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute benefit gala is unofficially one of fashion's biggest nights - Ralph Lauren declares it the "Super Bowl of fashion." A-listers, armed with their $25,000 tickets, came together Monday night in their most adventurous outfits to make an impression and celebrate fashion as an art at the Vogue-sponsored event.

Just a few days after Vice President and lovable uncle Joe Biden announced his support of same-sex marriage, and a day after the North Carolina amendment banning same-sex marriage was passed, the POTUS himself declared that his views on the issues have "evolved." In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, he described his opinions and how they have changed over the years, and the conversations with his wife, daughters, openly gay service members, and staffers that ...

  Yesterday, the state of North Carolina voted in favor of Amendment 1, a constitutional civil rights violation of a bill that bans same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state. The amendment formally defines marriage as between a man and a woman, but the rest of the language of the bill is notably vague, leading to concerns that the rights of unmarried straight couples would also be in danger. The concerns stem from the line stating, "Marriage between one ... Read More
The temperatures continue to rise and the sun is making its way out from behind the April clouds, meaning it's nearly time to bust out your raddest sunglasses. There's no better way to avoid eye strain, hide a hangover, or masquerade as a reclusive famous person. Below are some of our favorite options for this summer, and since we tend to go through pairs pretty quickly (read: accidentally sit on them in the car), they're all ultra-cheapies.
