   The Queen of Rock & Roll herself – Stevie Nicks – praised Queen Bey this past Sunday saying, “Beyoncé’s great. She’s got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite. She’s a good role model. She’s not skanky. I’m glad we have her.” Nicks originally met Beyoncé in 2001 during the recording of the pop anthem and (more ... Read More
I’ve never been an avid reader of the magazine Cosmopolitan (except that time I gained 15 pounds while I was abroad and the “Lose 10 lbs. in 10 Hours” headlines sucked me in – it doesn’t work by the way).  My roommate however, happens to love Cosmo and reads it religiously.  One day after work, while I was taking a short break from my very intense love affair with Netflix, I picked up a recent copy of Cosmo.  In ...

Just 10 hours ago, Beyoncé Knowles debuted (via her Instagram) her new look to the world: a short, blonde pixie cut. I’m really diggin this cut, y’all, 'cause it’s nothing really over the top, but it IS just perfect for her face. I mean, Queen B looks great in anything, and this haircut is super cute! While some fans aren’t as enthusiastic about her cut, and keep referring to Miley Cyrus’s head-turning pixie, I think it looks great on her! The ... Read More
The pop star, wonderwoman and possible goddess Beyoncé recently posted this photo of herself posing as an eight- or nine-year-old to her Tumblr. In the photo, she’s decked out in a gold lamé one-shoulder dress and matching beehive turban, with huge, dangly earrings, possibly getting ready for a school play. (Or, if you ask me, just dressing up.) It’s a look lacking the subtlety of the star’s later wardrobe, but, hell – ... Read More
  Holy Mother of Blue Ivy, this is genius. Ever find yourself staring into the depths of a gorgeous, iconic painting, only to wonder: "what the hell does this mean?" Unless you've studied works by everyone from Hyacinthe Rigaud to Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (uhh, nope), it can be really hard to puzzle out the messages behind their masterpieces. Queen B knows your pain. Or at least Leigh Silver does - she's carefully curated an impressive collection ... Read More
If anyone is going to bring fierceness to fundraising, it’s Beyoncé. This weekend, she took the stage with other pop stars and celebrities at Sound for Change Live at the Twickenhem Stadium in London. The massive concert event was set up to raise money for Chime for Change, an organization started by her, Salma Hayek and Frida Gianini (of Gucci fame.) Chime for Change’s mission statement is to help combat serious issues and crimes against women ... Read More
Ring the alarm! Can you believe this? Somebody smacked Beyonce’s Bey-hind while she was performing in Copenhagen. Yes, a complete douchebag reached his hand out from Beyonce’s audience and slapped her on the butt. Dude, what were you thinking?! Beyonce’s ass is Beyonce’s ass. No matter how much you spent on your concert ticket, you cannot buy the right to touch her bootylicious self. Or anybody’s self for that matter, ... Read More
Oh Beyonce, you can do no wrong! But are you a fierce feminist? That's been hotly debated for a while now, and Ms. Magazine's new cover is adding fuel to the fire. Ms. has made Queen Bey covergirl for their upcoming Spring 2013 issue, with the headline “Beyonce’s Fierce Feminism.” Disappointingly, it looks like they used a (relatively demure) stock photo, and Ms. has not interviewed the Queen herself.  But the mere fact she is on ...

In our last post about B, we raised an eyebrow at her reluctance to call herself a feminist. Why? Because we believe she is a feminist and she should own it. That’s why we did a serious double-take at what Rakhi Kumar wrote about her in the Huffington Post last week. In “An Open Letter to Michelle Obama”, Kumar reprimands the first lady for recognizing Beyonce as a role model for her two daughters: “...I think it's time to stop suggesting ... Read More
The word “feminist” has a carried a bad rap for years.  Women often shy away from the term because they fear it carries negative, radical, and anti-male connotations.  Here at BUST we try to promote the positive reality of feminism and what it actually means to be a feminist.  However, feminism is once more in the negative spotlight as female celebrities are shying away from the term as well. In the most recent issue of British Vogue, ... Read More
