If you're anything like me (and since you are reading BUST I'm guessing you are), you've been spending these cold months binge watching episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race, waiting and longing for its return on February 24. I've re-watched these episodes so many times, my dreams (maybe nightmares?) have been overrun with lace-front wigs and and pieces of foam shaped like Africa. What if you could watch the new season, right now, for free?
The awesome people ... Read More
“I am just utterly fascinating… At least that’s what I tell myself.” So reads the caption of the Instagram account belonging to Mathu Andersen, the hair and makeup artist of the legendary drag queen RuPaul. In addition to creatively producing RuPaul’s Drag Race and serving as creative director of Drag U, Mathu is indeed utterly fascinating.
His Instagram is filled to the brim with delightful and enchanting ... Read More

The highly-anticipated (by me, anyway) sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race will premiere February 2014 on LOGO. “It's our most outrageous and sickening cast to date," assures RuPaul. "And quite frankly, I'm scared of these queens.” Oh snap!
Let's meet the 14 drag queens who will be coming to your TV (and your heart) in just a few months.

OK, So it's not quite Halloween, but watching this video gave me the spooktacular warm fuzzies.
Let me start out by saying, RuPaul has a web series in which he interviews celebrities while driving. This week he interviewed Elvira, a.k.a Cassandra Peterson. She is out of costume, and he is out of drag.
The world is going to explode, I swear.
In the spirit of Halloween, RuPaul and Cassandra dig in about how ... Read More

Yet another great message cheering on yesterday's marriage equality win! The moment the ruling came back on the unconstitutionality of DOMA the Internet exploded. You’ve probably seen all the awesome signs, or that sassy response from Nancy Pelosi directed toward Michelle Bachmann. But have you seen the most fabulous one yet?
RuPaul, queen of queens, released a special video with the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race, thanking SCOTUS for their ... Read More

fASHLIN was founded by designer, stylist, and photographer Ashlin Choate. I am completely obsessed with this girl, based on all the amazing stuff she is producing with this self-made company. fASHLIN is a self-described cult-fashion label, with heavy influences from 90’s grunge, punk, nu-goth, mysticism, and general badassery. (If you like Daria and slime text, you will like fASHLIN. Bear with me.) fASHLIN operates through its Etsy, which sells insanely ... Read More
Xelle, “The girl group with something extra” is at it again. The pop trio has officially released the video of their newest song, Hologram. Is it a music video? Is it a video game? It’s a little bit of both! Directed by Zach Adam, Hologram is a “choose your own adventure” music video with guest appearances from Janeane Garofalo, Kevin Allison, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Michael Musto, and Martha Wash. Yes, you read ... Read More
This week, in a spectacularly well-timed episode, RuPaul's Drag Race was all about lip synching—both the normal kind, and the kind where you lip synch to spoken dialogue, like dubbing a movie in reverse. If you thought, "Ru made that up—no one does that," then join me in being wrong, because he also told us about performance artist Lypsinka, whose act consists of lip synching to audio clips of people like Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. The more ... Read More
Good day, Shantay! It's time for another season of RuPaul's Drag Race, America's favorite parade of glitter-drenched pageantry, wigs, and cat fights. Last night, 14 new contestants gathered in RuPaul's lair to show off their C.U.N.T.—charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. As usual, it was hard to focus on anything other than RuPaul's insanely amazing clothing (a flawless baby blue suit with white satin trim and matching shoes), but I'll give it a ... Read More
Leave it to RuPaul to make a reunion special interesting. I’ve been watching reality TV since the original New Orleans season of Real World, when Julie the Mormon got kicked out of Brigham Young University for co-habitating with men. Yet I’ve only tuned in to a reunion special once or twice (and one of those occasions was when I needed to see what Teresa would say after she flipped that table on Real Housewives of New Jersey). On last night’s ... Read More
