There have been many responses to the highly offensive (and incorrect) essay by Christopher Hitchens called “Why Women Aren’t Funny” that ran in Vanity Fair in 2007, and this oral history is the most comprehensive. We Killed chronicles the rise of female comedians ranging from the days of Mary Tyler Moore, up to the present successes of Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig. Some highlights from the earlier years include behind-the-scenes dirt about the ... Read More

Tomorrow marks the official start of the fall season, and I, for one, am super excited, and not just because my birthday is two weeks away. I live for fall: smelling pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate wafting through the air, while wearing my favorite leather jacket, black jeans and boots. Oh, how I adore boots!
To celebrate the start of fall, the ladies here at BUST shared their favorite (and for some, their least favorite) things about the ... Read More

Here in New York, the first signs of fall manifest in our wardrobes. Temperatures have dropped out of "sweat torture" territory, and cardigans are creeping out of our closets as things cool down. The pinnacle of cool, though, has got to be the World Maker Faire; on September 29 and 30, the grounds around the New York Hall of Science in Queens will transform into the world's largest DIY festival.
You are cordially invited to join us at the third annual BUST ... Read More

We've been keeping a secret from you: we have an illegal BUST employee. He isn't on the payroll. We do pay him with love, a place to hang out during the day, and scraps. Truth be told, though, Wally the office dog is probably our most valuable staff member. He's constantly pitching original content, posting blogs, and chatting it up with cover girls for the magazine. We thought it was time we fessed up and introduced you guys to our creative center, so we asked ... Read More

Montreal's Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) seemed a bit shy on stage in front of a sold out crowd at NYC's Bowery Ballroom recently. She confessed that she hadn’t played a show in a while and was forgetting songs. Well, I didn’t notice. Here’s what I did notice: Grimes’ songs are basically the perfect soundtrack for a f*ed up Grimm Brothers Fairytale. It’s that tense "Hansel & Gretel lost in the woods after being coaxed to the ...
