Musician Kate Nash has dipped her toe into acting before. She appeared in 2013 British indie film Powder Room, which was written by a woman (Rachel Hirons, based on her play When Women Wee), directed by a woman (MJ Delaney), and featured an all-female cast including the superb Sheridan Smith. Soon after, in 2014, following a sleepless night in LA, Nash devised an online community via a YouTube channel titled Girl Gang, which was concerned with “outside empowerment” and giving women and feminist men a...
This week, we can't get enough of the new Netflix show GLOW, starring Alison Brie as a struggling actress who gets her big break when she's cast as one of the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. Watching Brie give her all on the mat inspired us to revisit this story we did with her for our Dec/Jan 2012 issue, back when she was still lighting up the small screen on Mad Men and Community. Enjoy this Flashback Friday reprint of our chat. Then prepare to Netflix 'n' chill. Uptown Girl from Mad Men to Community, Alison Brie lights up the most beloved shows on...
The X-Files has been confirmed for the 11th season that’ll be out in 2018, and they're already running into problems. Unfortunately, Chris Carter, X-Files creator, has filled the writer’s room entirely with men. That means that the fate of the iconic Dana Scully is in the hands of a bunch of male writers. On top of them all being men, a few of the writers seem a bit under-qualified. Chris Carter, Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong, veteran writers of the show, will be joined...
RuPaul’s Drag Race season nine had arguably the most competitive finalists in the show’s history, and perhaps the most diverse. Trinity was hilarious and quick-mouthed and stood out as a southern pageant queen with a killer body. Peppermint was outgoing and strong, always standing up for herself and dominating every lip sync challenge she was in, and proved drag is for trans women. Shea Couleé had a wide skillset throughout the competition and quickly became a judge-favorite through her impressive acting, dancing and sewing talents....
Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience. For our latest episode, we recorded in front of a live audience on Saturday, June 10, at Kinfolk...
Look, if you have a BFF, you know that even though you love that bitch, sometimes you need to get some things off your chest. And what better way to air out the dirty laundry than via passive-aggressive smoothie making? Need some guidance? Broad City has you covered. We see our favorite babes mixing up millennial ingredients like kale, bee pollen (so you live forever), coconut water (like Rihanna, bitch), and maca. Don’t know what maca is? Neither does Abbi, despite the fact that Ilana...
Though I’m sure we’ve all managed to binge season five of Orange Is The New Black by now, let us not forget about this little gem that Netflix teased us with before its release on June 9th. Two of Netflix’s most popular dramas, Orange Is The New Black and Black Mirror, came together for a parody of Black Mirror’s “San Junipero,” starring none other than Litchfield’s own Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Taystee (Danielle Brooks). In the video, Taystee falls asleep and is reunited with Poussey, in...
We adored the first season of Issa Rae’s HBO series Insecure, and the first teaser trailer for season 2 has us counting down the days til it returns to our TV screens/HBONow.com tab. (It’s 38 days, btw: Season 2 premieres July 23.) The trailer doesn’t give too much away: We see Issa wandering a dreamscape as “Slide” by Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean and Migos plays. She sits next to Lawrence on a couch that says “hella confused”; she looks Daniel up and down by a...
I thought Harlots, Hulu’s costume drama about the sex industry in 18th century London, was going to be another pissing match between high-powered men with sex workers as eye candy, victims, and pawns, as they are typically portrayed on TV. Boy, was I wrong. In addition to being a super fun, raunchy costume drama, Harlots is one of the first shows I’ve ever seen that portrays sex workers as having actual agency and humanity. This, among many other surprises, should put it atop any feminist...
We didn’t think that we could get even more excited for the next season of Broad City, but it turns out, we can. Because Ilana Glazer has announced that Broad City will bleep out Trump’s name in the upcoming season 4. "There's no airtime for this orange (person)," Glazer told USA Today. "We bleep his name the whole season.” Broad City released an Inauguration Day clip that did, in fact, bleep out Trump’s name: “We are T-minus 60 seconds until [BLEEP] is inaugurated.” (Not bleeped: “Woman-hating, fucking...
