Molly Ringwald has a new book out. It’s called Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick and though I haven’t read it the title alone kinda triggers my gag reflex.

Which is exactly what drew me (and ... Read More

Over the last ten episodes, the ladies of RuPaul’s drag race made us laugh, made us cry, made us know fierce. And while they learned from Ru, they taught us about teamwork, self-respect, and how to make your country outfit really transition with a rip-away skirt. On Monday, a new drag superstar was born. Tyra Sanchez was the controversial choice for queen of the queens, and below, she lets us know she’s here. Work.

I'm not really into sports. And I'm not really into Nike either. And I don't really pay that much attention to sports endorsements BUT when Nike endorses sexual assault offenders even I'm like, "What the hell, Nike? You managed to not meet the exceedingly low expectations I have for you."

Found this awesome video of Patti Smith on an episode of the late-70's/early-80's TV show "Kids are People Too," via Lesley's blog who found it on Kathleen's blog.
I love how Patti explains punk rock by saying that "Rock 'n roll's gettin' back in the hands of the people, it belongs to the kids again, not the big business guys" and the host just kind of mumbles in response, "We can go for that, I think..." Also, what kind of a kid wants to be a missionary when they ... Read More

Monday, for the first time in NYC, federal prosecutors utilized the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act to convict two men with blocking the entrance of a Planned Parenthood in Manhattan.
Both men will be sentenced June 10th. They will face a maximum of six months and a maximum $10,000 fine.
In light of the circus in Oklahoma, it's nice to know that some government folks are working to make access to abortions easier.

Oklahoma is well on its way to becoming the most restrictive state for women seeking abortions. The two most recent bills are bad enough–one forces a woman to have an ultrasound and then listen to a detailed description of the fetus' limbs and organs, while the other prevents a woman for suing a doctor who fails to mention if the fetus is disabled. I don't even get how these two bills can actually work together, but apparently that doesn't matter in ... Read More

We're still waiting for the new Hole record to arrive here at BUST HQ (??) so since it's out this week, and in the interest of punctuality, I've decided to re post our good friend and music columnist Everett True's in-depth (and funny) review of Courtney's latest Nobody's Daughter. Everett has successfully attempted to do a "live review" of the first time he laid ears on the CD. For more of the awesome Everett, you can check him out here or in the pages of BUST ... Read More
