As part of (Queen) Oprah's "Where Are They Now?" series, RuPaul dished on the ins and outs of his drag career. "If I never did drag again, honestly, I wouldn't care!" he says. "The only time you will ever see me in drag is when I'm what? Getting paid." Let me be the first to say thank you to whoever has been paying him, then. Where would we be without RuPaul?! He also touched on his 19-year relationship with his partner, Georges. And yes, he totally gets that ... Read More
Ahh, the age-old "I'm SO bad at math!" line. For many people, this declaration is almost like a reflex when anything to do with numbers comes up in conversation. Calculating a tip at a restaurant? "Don't look at me! I'm so bad at math!" Grocery shopping? "So, so bad at math!" Talking about nothing math related? You get the idea. A recent piece by Kim Z. Dale in Chicago Now's "Listing Toward Forty" said what we all need to be thinking: Every time we say "I'm bad at ... Read More
This weekend, amidst my hectic schedule of clicking "Next Episode" on Netflix, I was introduced to the app ThirdLove. The just-launched app promises to fit the user for the perfect bra. I have been fitted for a bra in the past--a Victoria's Secret "professional" with a measuring tape and really cold hands curtly informed me I had a wide back and small boobs. But hey, my bras fit.  Nevertheless, I was intrigued by ThirdLove. Thanks to all the reported ... Read More
So much crazy...so little time. It's been one of those weeks where the world is just especially out of whack. Someone tell me if it's still Mercury Retrograde? Is the apocalypse from Melancholia happening for real? I want answers, people!! In the mean time, here's all the frustrating jibber-jabber you need to know:   • Kat Von D's makeup line came under fire for a shade of lipstick charmingly titled "Celebutard." I used to wistfully wonder what it ... Read More
"We Gonna Take It," the latest track from crazy-cool F.O.B. (Friend of BUST) Eaves, is going to be my jam for a looong time. Eaves says the track is "Dedicated to my sisters in pussy riot who remain unjustly incarcerated. #freepussyriot." Three members of Pussy Riot, a Russian punk band, have been imprisoned for months and continue to face oppressive conditions. Most recently, one member, after a disappearance, has been transferred to a Siberian Gulag. Eaves' ... Read More
ALL HAIL IKEA! I mean Sweden, right...Sweden. The land of moderately-priced decor, beautiful people, and delightful meatballs is out to make the world a better place. Swedish movie theaters are now incorporating the Bechdel Test into their ratings system, giving moviegoers the opportunity to know in advance which films treat women like, you know, humans and stuff.  If you're just tuning in, the Bechdel test "asks whether a work ...

Claire Meyer and Alan Linic have been dating for eight-ish months. Like any couple, their relationships has its ups and downs. Unlike any couple, every "fight," from minor spat to all-out war, is documented on their Twitter account: We Fought About. The updates come roughly every other day, with a general balance between the aggressor and the offended. According to an interview with The Cut, no fight goes undocumented, regardless of content or severity.  My ... Read More
Founder of Lululemon and resident bald dude Chip Wilson has always been a bit...off. In a 2009 blog post, he suggested this sigh-inducing theory: "Breast cancer also came into prominence in the 1990's. I suggest this was due to the number of cigarette-smoking Power Women who were on the pill (initial concentrations of hormones in the pill were very high) and taking on the stress previously left to men in the working world." Who knew giant piles of money also ... Read More
Nikki McClure, known for her intricate paper-cut art, will be displaying the original works featured in her 2014 Calendar, "Home," tonight at Land Gallery in Portland.  "Home" juxtaposes McClure's strong signature style with the delicacy of pastoral life, creating a somewhat eerie and nostalgic sensation. The artist creates her works using only a single sheet of black paper and an x-acto knife, making the pieces that much more awe-inspiring to witness in ... Read More
M.I.A.'s much-anticipated fourth studio album, Matangi, is set for release tomorrow, November 5th. But you don't have to wait another 24 hours to hear the new tracks--Matangi, in its entirety, is currently streaming on YouTube.  It's everything you would expect from M.I.A.--heavy beats, witty rhymes, references to political movements you have to look up on Wikipedia later, and last but not least: a serious dose of bad-ass-ery. The album, which she describes ... Read More
