Woody Allen Says He's #MeToo's "Poster Boy" In a Monday interview with Periodismo Para Todos, notorious creep and filmmaker Woody Allen argued that he should be the “poster boy” for the #MeToo movement. “I have worked in movies for 50 years. I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one have ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all,” he said. He also added that he’s frustrated to get “linked in” with abusers such as Harvey Weinstein. Hey, Woody Allen—even if it was true (which...
That SummerDirected By Göran Hugo OlssonOut May 11 In 1972, socialite Lee Radziwill asked artist Peter Beard to help her make a film featuring her relatives, Big and Little Edie Beale of Grey Gardens. The pair hired filmmakers David and Albert Maysles to help, but the project never panned out. Three years later, the Maysles brothers returned to the house in the Hamptons and made the now legendary documentary Grey Gardens. But nobody saw that original attempt—featuring more of staunch Little Edie’s wild outfits, dance numbers, and...
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.

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....
Girl gangs are endlessly entertaining. So when Poptarts co-host Callie Watts suggested we do a show about our favorite girl gangs in pop culture, obviously the answer was yes. But very quickly, as Callie and Emily started to discuss their picks, it became abundantly clear that they had very different interpretations of what constitutes a girl gang. So instead, this episode is going to be a celebration of girl gangs (Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill!), girl crews (Hidden Figures), and girl squads (Sex and the City)....

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. Way back in 2003, Frances McDormand—then 45—was our cover star for our Spring 2003 "Age Issue." Now, at 60, she's as much of an inspiration as she was 15 years ago, recently calling for Hollywood to adopt inclusion riders as a way to increasing diversity on set.   Most of us fell in love with her as Marge Gunderson—the most likable...
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...

  Las Vegas’ Erotic Heritage Museum is a sex-positive exhibition space, operating with an ethos that sexual pleasure is an intrinsic aspect of the human experience, and that celebrations of human sexuality should be made available to all. So it makes sense for Irish-born, London-based artist and activist Clare O Hagan to utilise this unique space for her upcoming solo exhibition, Embracing Women. Embracing Women features a series of some fifty drawings and prints created over a period of two decades. Based on life drawing studies, each piece...
