Last week we blogged those "tough as nails" pics of Frances Bean that Hedi Slimane took, and everyone seemed quite enamored with them, so in honor of baby Frances' 19th birthday today(!), I decided to post these lovely shots taken by one of our favorite photographers, Rocky Schenck, to show Frances' softer side. Enjoy, she is a beauty for sure! Fun fact: Rocky also photographed Margaret Cho for the cover of BUST in the 90's Also, if this post is making you feel old, do not fret: age is just a number, AND lets all hope Frances quits the ciggies soon so she can live a long and healthy life.

Luckily for us, Galadriel has recently launched her new web series, “In Bed with Galadriel” where she’ll be interviewing various NY luminaries (in bed, natch) and getting all up in their faces.

Amy Winehouse, Rest In Peace

BY Laurie in Music

We've all lost a great talent today, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home. While it does not come as a surprise to most, it is still shocking that someone so young and so clearly gifted is gone. I didn't know Amy, but did work with her once back in 07 on her press tour for Back in Black during a photoshoot for BUST.  When that record came to our office, it was just so superior to anything we'd heard in years, and it was instantly loved by everyone.

I like to complain that there is simply not enough new RAWK in the world these days, everything’s all wimpy electronic blips and bleeps, or slow, mellow folky beard rock – which is all fine and good, but sometimes you really just need an old fashioned, ass-kicking power pop rock record! So I was happy to hear about Kentucky based Sleeper Agent, who play fast, catchy and hard. Read More
We’re real proud to announce that we have a big, fat, new book coming out this fall.

We’re very pleased to announce the winners of the Ladies of Polaroid contest, a photo competition sponsored by and co–sponsored by BUST. The idea was to submit photos inspired by the vintage manuals from the original Polaroid Land Camera, and the results were all pretty amazing, and so adorable!            There were two categories, “reproduction” and “open” where the photographers were asked to create images inspired by the originals.

Why are Joan Jett and Cherie Currie suing Main Man records over a Runaways tribute album slated for release later this month? According to Main Man's site, portions of the proceeds of Take It or Leave It, which includes 2 cds full of prominent rockers covering Runaways classics, are going to the American Institute for Cancer Research in memory of Sandy West, former Runaways drummer, who lost her fight with cancer in 2006.

After my swift departure from Corporate America a few months ago, I found myself at a loss. Not so much a loss for the consistent paycheck I continually wasted on frivolous travel or the much-needed health benefits for “regular checkups”, but the notion I would never find a place or group of people who felt the same way I did about the word fuck. I have been blogging for three years, but only recently started taking it more seriously and actually seeing the effects in my bank account. Read More
