While maintaining the air of mystery she’s created for herself, Leikeli47 released a music video to accompany her recently-released song "Miss Me." In the video she keeps her face covered and works in a bodega where all of the products bear her name or face. She first entered our radar when her song “F**k the Summer Up,” which Jay-Z co-signed, was included in his playlist on Tidal and he named the playlist after her song. Leikeli47 has managed to keep her full name, age, and...

Songwriter, choreographer, and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul has finally dusted off her dancing shoes and graced us all with her presence and talents after a long 25 years. The last time she went on tour was in 1991-1992 for her international Under My Spell Tour, which was named by a fan from an MTV contest submission. Now she is opening up for boy band New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) on their current Total Package Tour – and it’s nothing short of awesome. The announcement...

Céline Dion is a queen. Whether it’s recently posing naked for Vogue Magazine or racking up those dollar signs with her choice of wardrobe ensembles ($108,000+), Dion knows how to slay, even without a microphone in hand. But if you still don’t believe me, watch and listen to some of her on-stage performances – such as “The Power of the Dream” at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, “That’s The Way It Is” with *NSYNC during her “All the Way... A Decade of Song” TV special...

We couldn't be more excited to announce the latest member of the BUST fam, Emily Nokes who is stepping in to be our new music editor. She's the singer/tamborine queen of Tacocat, the Seattle-based "Easter-egg-hued pop-punk-pop" band, and she was previously the music editor for The Stranger, an alternative newspaper in Seattle. She's smart, she's feminist, has impeccable taste, and she gives no fucks about expressing herself, whether it's through her rainbow locks or her girl-powered music. We're thrilled that she's bringing that energy with her to BUST.  Follow...

  I have a funny memory of being 14 in an Express Peter Pan collar dress, standing on my Sailor Moon bedset, screeching weird poetry. Sure, I had been inspired before during my elementary school Robin Hood peasant blouses and archery phase, begging my mum for Celtic jewelry at the Renfaire. Feeling very profound in my newfound angst when my middle school wiles kicked in, the world suddenly felt less whimsical. Consequently, my teen development happened at the peak of “grunge” on ‘90s Gen X MTV,...

You know that almost-but-never relationship you had (or have, bless your heart) that kept you coming back for more as it unraveled your sanity (and, in my case, elicited a nine-month stream of subtweets)? So do Brooklyn-based “queer country trailblazers” Karen & the Sorrows, and their single “I Was Just Your Fool” from their upcoming album, The Narrow Place (out August 25th), will have you swaying back and forth in solidarity with that heart-wrenching feeling.  The sound aligns with old-school country but incorporates an alternative undercurrent...

I just started playing saxophone in this soul/folk band (I’m really bad at describing music). We were invited by an artist collective organization called Artery to play a secret apartment show. Artery was started by music lovers with the intention of bringing artists, performers, and audiences together in an intimate way, with the hope of sparking a connection that could inspire further collaboration. I enter a tiny Bushwick apartment and am warmly greeted by fellow performers. We huddle together drinking beer while trying not to bump...

BUST has the exclusive premiere of Kim Boekbinder’s video for “Head Bitch In Charge (H.B.I.C.),” and this is sure to be your power anthem and fashion inspiration for the summer. Within the first 30 seconds, I was ready to throw on the weirdest shit I could find in my closet, sashay over to a warehouse party, and bless the dancefloor with limb-swinging moves. (So I’ve never actually been to a warehouse party, but I did watch that episode of Girls. I think it is my...

Annie Hart has announced her first solo album, Impossible Accomplice, to drop July 14. One of the album's eight tracks, "Run To You," can be heard for the first time here: “I am really pleased with how it turned out," she says of the track. "For me, it really combines that soft comfortable feeling of being with someone, and there’s music playing and this push and pull of emotions, the quiet of when they send you positive signals, and then the storm of torment that erupts when...
