I love the band X. In the '70s and '80s, these California punk rock icons inspired many young people like myself, and I’ve always especially admired lead singer Exene Cervenka. But I noticed something distressing over the past few months. She's calling herself a “Conspiracy Therapist” on Twitter, writing some disturbing tweets, and posting videos like The Blunt Truth about The Trayvon Martin Case. (Which essentially complained that the uproar over that case belittled all the other terrible things happening in the world. Read More
Can you hear that? It’s the sound of BUST’s June/July Summer Music Issue, featuring the one and only Dolly Parton on the cover! We’ve got an exclusive interview with the icon, in which she spills the beans on her inspiration, her childhood, and, of course, feminism. And there’s plenty more hotness in this issue, including interviews with Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame, and smokin’ musical up-and-comers like Mary Lambert, Little Dragon, Angel Olsen, Lizzo, and Tuneyards.

If you've ever taken a trip with your mom to the Mall, or as in my case, taken your kids to the mall, you will no doubt appreciate this awesome clip by our favorite Mom impersonator, John Roberts. He also plays the voice of Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers, and most certainly loves his mama. Happy Mothers Day!   Check out his YouTube page for more awesome videos by John. Read More

How many times have you passed by a homeless person, and not noticed them? Living in N.Y.C. I would venture to guess that number would be very, very high. It's not often that we stop to talk to, or even look at the homeless. It's something we'd simply rather not acknowledge. Maybe because its scary to think that anyone could be sitting there, a loved one, or possibly ourselves? Well the folks over at the New York Rescue Mission have cleverly created an incredibly heart wrenching new video that asks, Have the Homeless Become Invisible? and sadly, the answer is yes. Read More
A bunch of BUST editors and friends were asked to judge Jonathan Toubin’s  Soul Clap and Dance-Off  a few weekends ago, and we had SOOOOO much fun! Above is a pic of the winner, Elizabeth Arnold (aka #66) who's moves were undeniable. The second runner up was also fantastic, but we didn't catch his name because, frankly, judging is hard work and you need to drink the entire time, so by 2 am we were pretty wasted. Sorry #100! Special guest DJs  Jon Spencer (Pussy Galore) and Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog) kept the bodies moving. Read More

At the NY premiere of Beth B's latest documentary, EXPOSED–which pulls back the curtain on the NYC Burlesque scene–there was a touching moment during the Q+A that followed the screening: A young audience member revealed that she had grown up in a very closed-minded family, and wept as she thanked the performers for their bravery.
