2014 has proven to be a pretty cool and empowering year for women…so much so, that it’s kind of starting to creep me out. There have been tons of ads going around referencing the power of girls and women, and re-asserting everything we can do. I'm happy about this, buuuuut I am a little concerned about the agencies behind some of these viral videos. Are they really 100% invested in the wellbeing of women, or are they jumping on some kind of ... Read More

I’m not sure about you, but I was super psyched about the latest SNL with Host Lena Dunham and Musical Guest The National; a double win in my book. The promos for the episode - featuring Lena and Kate McKinnon - had me for-real cry-laughing. I thought I would never get over the departure of Kristen Wiig in 2012, but I think I'll be alright if this comedic genius continues. 2014 has been a pretty awesome year for Dunham: she released ...

The episode begins with a cheeky shoutout to the world of Wes Anderson: a montage of Marnie preparing a spooky-yet-eleganza beachside manse for a girls-only weekend, complete with a banana-yellow title frame and chipper, and Tenenbaums-y strings in the background. It’s already clear that shit’s gonna get weird.
Now settled in that strange place where quirk meets melancholy, the crew arrives. Jessa has decided to ride in the back of the bus “for ... Read More

The old-as-time question of the feminist killjoy: Should I be enjoying this? I’ve found the answer is, typically, not really. Unless of course it’s 30 Rock, or Wanda Sykes standup.
Girl Code is the MTV show that echoes VH1’s I Love the 80’s/90's in set-up and production. The show provides a litany of interview sound bytes from a variety of funny women, and a couple of dudes for “the male perspective.” *eye roll*
What can be ... Read More

Margaret Cho has been brought on to co-star in Tina Fey's upcoming sitcom about a women's college going co-ed.Cho, the hilarious and brilliant comedian, will play Laura Thibault, the college president responsible for the new inclusivity. Apparently, Thibault is a "divisive figure on campus" (a.k.a probably a badass) struggling with her decision to bring on the men, as she is easily frustrated with their boyish ridiculousness.
I smell a new ... Read More

The rumors are true-mors. Finally, after nine years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally got their act together and decided to bring back Ellen DeGeneres to host the 80th Academy Awards which will broadest live on Sunday, March 2.Since I have apparently been living under a rock for the few months, I was surprised (as I hope some of you were, or else this post is redundant) by the new promo pics for the 2014 Oscars showing DeGeneres ...

It looks like everyone's favorite tight rope walker, Janelle Monae, will be dancing and singing through the beloved sets of Sesame Street. We love this former BUST cover girl, and we're kinda losing our minds with excitement!
In this great behind the scenes clip, we see Monae singing "The Power of Yet," a song that teaches kids and adults alike the importance of perseverance, with cast favorites like Big Bird, Ernie and Cookie Monster. There is even a ... Read More
