TV

As we get closer to BUST's 25th anniversary this July, we're bringing some of our favorite pieces from the past online. In Spring 2004, Tina Fey appeared on our cover—an experience she later recalled in Bossypants, writing, “Feminists do the best Photoshop, because they leave the meat on your bones. They don’t change your size or your skin color. They leave your disgusting knuckles, but they take out some armpit stubble. Not because they’re denying its existence, but because they understand that it’s okay to make...

  If you’re wondering how Karrueche Tran made the leap from gossip blog mainstay to starring on Claws—one of the wildest dramas on television—you’re not the only one surprised by her remarkable transition. “I never expected to become an actor, to be honest,” says Tran.  She almost makes it sound easy. But the 30-year-old Los Angeles native is so sunny and relaxed she can make anything sound like a walk in the park. The truth is, however, she put in work. As a Hollywood stylist and model...

Last night on Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee addressed last week’s “feckless cunt” comment and the backlash she received. She apologized again for her language, but joked, “I should have known that a potty-mouthed insult would be inherently more interesting than juvenile immigration policy. I would do anything to help those kids. I hate that this distracted from them.” Watch her full segment below: Tennessee Hardware Store Refuses Entry to Gay Couples  Following the recent Supreme Court ruling on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, Amyx...

 As we get nearer to our 25th anniversary this July, we're bringing some of our favorite BUST stories out of the archives and onto the internet. Back in 2011, we talked to Wendy Williams about family, food and feminism. At 46, Wendy Williams has achieved the American dream. She’s got a killer career in TV, radio, and publishing. And her husband of 16 years, Kevin Hunter (who’s also her manager and producer), and their 10-year-old son keep things from getting lonely at the top. The consummate...

Dolly Parton is coming to Netlfix, and we couldn't be more pumped. On Monday, Deadline reported that Netflix has greenlighted an anthology series about country music icon Dolly Parton. According to Parton’s website, each of the eight episodes will be centered around one of her famous songs and are set to premiere on the platform in 2019. Deadline also detailed that Parton will make an appearance in various episodes of the series, as well as being its executive producer. Parton’s own production company, Dixie Pixie Productions, will be...

Samantha Bee Apologizes To Ivanka After Pressure From Trump Administration Earlier this week on Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee shared a picture Ivanka Trump recently posted with her son. “You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child,” she commented, “but let me just say from one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless cunt.” Immediately, Trump’s administration jumped on Bee. After comments from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Trump on Twitter, TBS and Bee both released statements apologizing....

Many people have been asking about BUST's position on the cancellation of Roseanne in the wake of Roseanne Barr's racist tweets about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Our response is that we're saddened by Barr's tweets but not surprised, and we think canceling the show was the right thing to do. This is a painful process to observe because we had a deep love and respect for Barr for so many years. Most of BUST's editors were big fans of the original run of Roseanne, and...

If you’ve seen Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, when you think of Tituss Burgess, you probably picture the scene in which his character, Titus Andromedon, pulls off his coveralls to reveal a sequined top and gold leggings as he sings, “Pee-no noir” (“an ode to black penis”). Or maybe you remember the scene in which he dresses up as Beyoncé and goes “Lemonade-ing.” It doesn’t take long after I meet the real Burgess, 39, in a coffeeshop in New York’s West Village, for him to inform me that...

Roseanne Gets Canceled In Response To Roseanne Barr’s RacismIn a surprising but encouraging move, ABC canceled Roseanne yesterday after Roseanne Barr sent out a racist tweetstorm comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, a black woman, to the Planet of the Apes. Channing Dungey, the president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.” But in a New York Times op-ed, Roxane Gay reminds us, “For once, a...

As we prepare for BUST's 25th anniversary, we're bringing some of our favorite cover stories online for the first time. Here's our cover story with Natasha Lyonne from our Summer 2001 "Living Single" issue. Natasha Lyonne personifies the modern single gal. She is a woman with a vision. She knows who she is. She has romantic notions and she has realistic expectations. She knows what she wants, and she is determined to be as exacting as she can about it all. Plus she has a fabulous...
