Here at BUST, we love it when women we like like each other, too — so we were thrilled to see our Oct/Nov cover girl Aubrey Plaza and our upcoming Dec/Jan cover girl Mary Elizabeth Winstead interviewed together for the Los Angeles Times’ Young Hollywood roundtable.

CMJ Music Marathon kicks off in New York today, which means that from now until the wee hours of Saturday night (or Sunday morning, if you're doing it right), seemingly every band ever will be playing shows at over 80 venues across the city.

We're hoping to catch some incredible lineups over the next few days and nights, and we're pleased to ... Read More
