Calling all broads! In a recent video interview, the women of Broad City Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer dished about the making of season two of their hit Comedy Central show. The duo discussed taking the show to absurd levels, achieving a recognizable New York City, and most importantly of all, pegging. As any fan knows, the most important feature of the show is the absurd situations the girls find themselves in. Like when Abbi turns out to have a drunken alter ego named Val would...
I love few things more than I love free speech. I have the First Amendment memorized, people. That’s why I feel pretty confident in saying that Reddit’s decision to remove five harrassing “subreddits” (sort of like a forum, for those who aren’t familiar with Reddit) is not censorship, but vital for creating a safe online community. The most prominent removed subreddit is called Fat People Hate, which had more than 5,000 subscribers. The forum’s users posted and demeaned pictures of fat people or fat-acceptance/body-positive activists. Why did...
We all know how it felt when Beyoncé dropped an album straight from heaven into our laps without advance notice in 2013. The shock and unbridled joy of that moment can never be replicated, but when Netflix released the third season of Orange Is The New Black six hours early during primetime last night, our reaction was just as joyful. The news first broke via an announcement by Netflix bigwig Reed Hastings during last night’s invitation-only Orange Con event, held in New York City. I’m a...
In an interview with Jezebel, baby-faced OITNB actor Matt McGorry discusses feminism, something he has spent the last couple of years learning (and tweeting) about. “For lack of a better term, I’m balls-out,” he says. He tells Jezebel that we need to make it “okay for people to fuck up” when talking about feminism and intersectionality, particularly in conversation with people who are new to these social justice issues. “It’s this dangerous, slippery slope where, sometimes if you aren’t an expert, people want to crucify you,...
Like most of us, Jemima Kirke, of Girls fame, has had her fair shares of struggles with body image. She may be on a TV show where characters are known for getting naked, but that's not where her body concerns began: In an interview with Kelsey Miller of The Anti-Diet Project in Refinery29, she talked about her struggles with body image and self-acceptance. Kirke recalls, “‘My mom used to say to me, 'I think you’re beautiful. I think you’re perfect. I just want you to be happy.'" ... "That's such a mixed...
In the “Assault Swim” segment on Monday’s episode of The Daily Show, Senior Texas Aquatics Correspondent Jessica Williams managed to call out not only the police violence in McKinney, Texas, but many other relevant manifestations of racism—all in less than three minutes. We see her wearing a pink string bikini over full body armor, sarcastically dubbed a “McKinney bikini,” which she donned to prepare herself for a Texas pool party. She enumerates the “lessons” learned from what happened in McKinney (which we talked about in an...
Fine, we admit it: BUST loves witches. We consider Sabrina and her aunts our homies. The potential Charmed reboot is already our new favorite TV show despite the fact that NO ONE HAS CONFIRMED WHETHER IT’S ACTUALLY HAPPENING *shakes fist at sky*. The definite remake of The Craft remake has us waiting on pins and needles for updates. We can sing the entire Wicked soundtrack, with or without music. Our very own Craft Lady Callie even made a two-month foray into the world of modern witching not...

Last Saturday evening, the still-beloved cast of Gilmore Girls joined the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino for a reunion at the ATX Television Festival. After the theme song played with much of the audience singing along, Sherman-Palladino and the Stars Hollow gang spoke about how the show came to be, filming experiences, and where the characters are now.  Flavorwire got an exclusive interview, and here are five exciting things we learned from it: 1.) “Oy, with the poodles already!” Amy Sherman-Palladino finally explained the origins of Lorelai’s oft-quoted,...
It was an idyllic afternoon in Central Park. Sun streaming through the trees overhead, Joseph Turnage and Brandon Moore were wrapped in a loving embrace, posing during an engagement photo shoot with photographer Alisha Siegel. But then, without warning, a vaguely sweaty figure enters the frame – none other than beloved comedian/noted photobombing legend/prank master general Amy Schumer. Jogging nearby, Schumer shrieked upon spotting the couple and immediately asked to join. "She took off her sunglasses, we snapped a quick picture, and then she says, 'You guys know...
They’re made of sugar, spice, everything nice, and some Chemical X – and they’re coming back to the silver screen in 2016.
