Whew! What a weekend!  We had such a great time, we’re STILL recovering! (dancing is hard work). BUST Magazine was live and in full effect at AfroPunk Brooklyn - we were blown away by the nonstop talent and fashion a-game. Special props to Laura Mvula, who sang like she was the patron goddess of song in that fire gown. To Skin from Skunk Anansie for putting the 'Punk' in AfroPunk for sure. To the Suffers and their live sound that set the mood.  Thank you...
One year to the day after I was raped, I stood alone, smashed between groups of giggling girls and their friends. The line to meet Demi Lovato before that evening’s concert twisted endlessly through Bankers Life Fieldhouse. I concentrated on keeping my back facing away from the people around me, pleading with my mind and body not give in to the flashbacks that had been increasingly plaguing me lately. Surviving and recovering from sexual assault is a roller coaster of emotions. More often than not, you’re...
I'm sure you have heard the sad news that the amazing, admirable, legendary Gene Wilder passed away at 83 years old. His nephew said he died from complications of Alzheimer's disease.  The comedic genius was famous for roles in films such as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Stir Crazy, The Producers, and of course, one of my favorite movies of all time, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Wilder's Willy Wonka character had a few notable songs that have been covered by some amazing artists through the past few decades. To celebrate the...
Björk opened the London part of her Björk Digital exhibition in a spectacular way. The Icelander came to the London press conference as a live avatar that used motion-capturing technology to mirror her movements. Human Björk was really 1,200 miles away in Reykjavík, Iceland. A computer graphics and media team in Iceland captured her voice and movements, which were then streamed into London. She accompanied Director of the Somerset House Trust Jonathan Reekie for a Q&A discussion. According to a statement on Facebook, the artist wore a special "mocap" (motion capture) suit,...

Last weekend (August 20-21), Full Moon Fest came to Governor's Island, New York City, for a full weekend of music, art, and parties. The festival included a diverse mix of acts, with DJ sets in between musicians, keeping the crowd buzzed and moving from the afternoon until the sun was long gone. Oh, and there were booze buckets and part of the island was turned into a beach. It was glorious, and the perfect send-off to summer. If you missed the festival this year, trust me, you...
To no surprise, Beyonce's surprise VMA performance was quite literally the most amazing thing we have ever seen, hands down. No exaggeration. With a night complete with a rambling Kanye West, Jimmy Fallon dressed as Ryan Lochte, and let's face it, a whole lot of weirdness, Bey was our saving grace.  She started off by dropping jaws and tugging at our heartstrings when she hit the red carpet with her daughter Blue Ivy, both looking stunning and glam with complementing gowns. To give us even more feels, she...
       AfroPunk Fest is back in NYC with full force, and you don’t want to miss this year’s amazing lineup!  If you have never been, AfroPunk is an annual high style, weekend long music festival and market that celebrates beautiful black voices, art and culture in Brooklyn. Last year BUST was blown all the way away by the indomitable Grace Jones, whose set included a bloody lipped crowd surf while rockin' a giant porcelin plume and topless hula hooping throughout the entire performance of 'Slave to...
 via Macy Gray's facebook It’s not often you find a cover that’s better or at least on par with the original, but there are those moments of pure sonic heaven when you realize you haven't fully appreciated a song until you hear it performed by another artist. Well, Macy Gray covered Metallica’s "Nothing Else Matters," and let's just say that I’m trying to keep my cool but I’m fiendin’. Gray brings her signature raspy voice and bluesy style to the cover, managing to turn a song...
Against Me! led by Laura Jane Grace, defeats a Darth Vader-like character with lightsaber guitars (you heard that right) in this hilarious low-budget video.  The band dons comical face paint, looking like a punk rock KISS, while jumping and dancing around the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia.  The room is decorated in a plethora of Christmas lights in an otherwise dark room, creating a DIY outer space-like vibe.  "This was one of the most difficult videos we've ever made because it was filmed in outer space," drummer Atom Willard...
