‘Tern the Beat Around

BY Callie in General |

 Today was a sad day at BUST HQ, three of our working-hard-for-no-money BUST-ies are leaving. With such a small staff, we rely on our interns for everything. From fact checking to fashion shoot pick-ups, these labies have their youthful paws in everything. We get them for at least 3 months at a time and for at least 3 days a week. It's revolving door of dank-ness, constantly changing. Poor Deb Stoll has seen so many ‘terns through the years she has ... Read More
I recently had the pleasure of being invited by the folks in ANFAO and the Italian Trade Commission to check out all the smashing new eyewear in Milan at their annual trade show. They flew some writers from the US on a private jet for the weekend, and we even got an in-flight fashion show of, you guessed it, eyeglasses!

If you're a Brazillian woman and you wind up with an unintended pregnancy, you're SOL—abortions are illegal in this South American country, although 800,000 are performed illegally every year, and result in the deaths of 4,000 women annually. However, now there's some good news: President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva yesterday announced to his thong-clad nation that he's going to subsidize birth-control pills so that they are affordable to anyone who wants ...

I just got off the rag. That means all this week has been about cravings. More specifically, chocolate cravings and the box of “Lady Pink Banana Milk Graffiti Bars” that rolled through BUST HQ from Alison Nelson at Chocolate Bar NYC. At $4 a bar it costs as much as a box of tampons but who cares because bananas have potassium and I heard that helps put some stop to your cramps. Also, we all know chocolate helps with everything. So, this week has been ... Read More

BUST's "Pop Tart" columnist Wendy McClure came through N.Y.C. last weekend on a visit from her sweet home Chicago, so I made sure to grab a pineapple full of liquid sunshine with her at one of my fave bars, Trailer Park. As one of the few people on earth I will concede knows more about pop culture than I, Wendy in person didn't disappoint, and in fact dazzled me with this little gem of ephemera she picked up on her visit to the Museum of Television and ...
