BUST’s current cover girl Tavi Gevinson really has come into her own. The sixteen year old has gone from an adolescent fashion blogger to a mature pop culture curator (she started ROOKIE online magazine, soon to be a book this fall) in no time flat. Tavi hit the last stop on the Rookie Road Trip this Sunday, bringing her personal brand of magic to the City of Angeles. To celebrate the end of the Tavi Train, the teenage blogger held the Strange ... Read More
Hole reunited and played together in Brooklyn last week, and if you weren't lucky enough to be in the audience, don't shed mascara-filled tears--you can watch it below! The April 13th show saw Patty, Melissa, Eric, and Courtney play together again, in honor of the new rockumentary Hit So Hard, about drummer Patty's life. The band hadn't played together for 15 years, but they still made magic on that stage. Although the band members have been through plenty of ups ... Read More

Hit So Hard

BY Intern Tessa in Movies |

Patty Schemel, former drummer for Hole (among others), is a survivor. She found success in one of the biggest acts of the 90s, but along with her rock-star lifestyle came some dark moments, and while Patty played the shit out of the drums, life equally played the shit out of Patty. The story of her life and career is told in Hit So Hard, a documentary that opens in theaters on April 13th. A drummer holds every song together, and with her focused expression, steady ... Read More
VH1 counted down their list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music last week, and while I feel some ladies were overlooked and others given a spot they shouldn't have, I do applaud VH1 for recognizing the contributions that female musicians have made to the music industry. The list spans the past two decades— wow, has it really been that long since the 90s? Many of the ladies on this list broke musical barriers, fighting their way into arenas that were ... Read More
After reading a comment posted by a "shellylovelace" on a YouTube video that suspiciously sounded like our old friend Courtney Love, I followed the link back to discover internetz GOLD: Courtney's own YouTube Channel. With categories including "Guilty Pleasures" -- where we discover that Courtney enjoys watching old Go Gos videos, and the war between Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler on Howard Stern--to "Freak Assed Shit"--which includes videos of her mother, Linda ...

The greatest living lineup of Courtney Love’s ever-evolving rock band Hole was seen in public together for the first time in 13 years last night, but they weren’t announcing any future plans to play together. Instead, Love, Melissa auf der Maur, and Eric Erlandson were rallying around their estranged drummer Patty Schemel at the premiere of P. David Ebersole’s documentary about her life, Hit So Hard, which screened at New York’s Museum of ... Read More
(photo of the marquee at The (gorgeous!) Wellmont Theatre in NJ) She's a bitch, she's a lover she's a child' she's a mother, and she is back and better than ever.Courtney's new face and revamped Hole lineup shredded the Wellmont Theater with no remorse last Friday night in Montclair New Jersey.  It's safe to say that the coveted queen hot mess cleans up real nice playing a strong set of classic Hole favorites like " Miss World", "Doll Parts" and "Violet" ...

                         Watch out America, she’s clean and sober!  Regardless of how you feel about the never-ending train wreck that is Courtney Love, I promise her Behind The Music is totally worth the two hours of your time.  Speaking candidly about her messed-up childhood, custody battles, numerous stints in rehab, and what it felt like to be deemed Nirvana’s Yoko Ono, I ...

After reading the big profile on M.I.A. in the Sunday New York Times Magazine, I kept thinking that this was not going to be good for M.I.A. I love her music, and have always admired her “in your face" style, and for taking a stand for the Tamil's in the civil war in Sri Lanka, and lets face it, there is a risk in standing up for what you believe in. But the writer, Lynne Hirschberg was particularly astute at calling out the problems with M.I.A’s ... Read More
Last night I spoke on a panel at the 92nd street Y. As a way to promote the event, I was asked by the organizers to write a piece for Flavorwire on who I thought were the ten most influential women in pop culture. Since we're on deadline here at BUST and I didn't have much time to devote to this, I whipped up a list of only 7, which they published yesterday, and which I am reposting below. There's a lot more to say about each of these women and why I think they ... Read More
