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...
The Obamas Are Coming To Netflix Yesterday, Netflix confirmed on Twitter that Barack and Michelle Obama signed a “multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.” In a statement, the former president said he hopes to share more American experiences with a wider audience.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Stands Up Against Harmful Supreme Court Ruling The U.S. Supreme Court recently declared that employers can bar their workers from taking collective action in the case...

"Is this ladder safe?” Samira Wiley asks before gamely climbing up the rickety rungs leaning against a lemon tree on location at our L.A. cover shoot. The 30-year-old actor is almost unrecognizable in a pair of soaring geometric heels and a strapless green mini dress that makes her ladder climbing even more impressive. But then she flashes her unmistakable smile, the one that makes her eyes crinkle and twinkle and is familiar to anyone who watched the first four seasons of the Netflix series Orange...
Cynthia Nixon is currently running for governor of New York, but way back in 2002 she graced the cover of our Summer 2002 issue. In it, she talks about motherhood, her love for New York, and how Sex and the City fought the virgin/whore dichotomy.  We're bringing this piece online as part of the lead-up to our 25th anniversary this July. In real life, Cynthia Nixon isn’t very much like her Sex and the City character, Miranda Hobbes—the career-driven, independent-to-a-fault, smart, sarcastic girl most of us are afraid...
Every episode of Westworld’s second season has been replete with twists and shocking reveals—but last night's went above and (creepily) beyond. (Warning: Spoilers below!) The Man In Black’s daughter is in the park. Logan is dead. Delos is trying to upload human consciousness into hosts, and God (or Ford?!) only knows what will happen next. But for Westworld’s most devoted fans, the most important of last night’s surprises was the return of Elsie, our favorite fearless programmer who disappeared late last season. After a long, unpleasant stint...
Samantha Bee wants you to know that the future is female—or, at least, it had better be, because she’s “done with this shit.” In a segment last night on the host’s TBS show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bee tore into Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general who resigned earlier this week after The New Yorker published allegations that he had hit, choked, and threatened four women. Back in November, Schneiderman was a guest on Bee’s show. The former attorney, Bee mentioned last night, “positioned himself...
Spoilers Ahead! Where to begin with Season Two of Dear White People? It is leaps and bounds better than Season One, in my humble opinion. As we know, Season One of Dear White People was beholden to the original film, written and directed by Justin Simien, from which the show gets its name. Because the first season has covered the events that take place in the film, this season is allowed to plot its own course. Season Two takes on Twitter trolls, media personalities, secret...
Fans know Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie on Sex and the City—or more recently, as Frances on HBO’s Divorce—but behind the scenes, Parker is working to help other women’s stories get told. She runs her own production company called Pretty Matches (after her one-and-only line in the 1974 TV movie The Little Match Girl), and her publishing imprint, SJP for Hogarth, which will release its first novel, A Place For Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza, this summer. In conversation with sportscaster Mary Carillo at Tribeca Film Festival last...
This Saturday, comedian Michelle Wolf performed at The White House Correspondents' Dinner, lambasting Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, and, of course, Trump. She spoke for nearly 20 minutes, and criticized liberals and conservatives alike. But for some, yet unexplained reason, the internet lost its collective mind over one simple joke about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “I actually really like Sarah,” Wolf said. “I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe...
    At a Tribeca Film Festival event, Drunk History co-creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner talked about the process of creating the show after showing a series scenes from upcoming episodes (including a brilliant one about the creation of modern-day Halloween). In a talk moderated by frequent Drunk History guest Josh Charles, the Drunk History creators said that they feel a responsibility to tell stories about historical figures who aren’t all straight white cis men. “We want stories to be more inclusive, and as we’ve been finding more stories...
