We're getting excited for our Dirty Dancing viewing party this weekend, where we’ll be watching the 80s classic Dirty Dancing staring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. I was assigned the laborious task of carrying the watermelon, AND creating the signature cocktail for the evening, but I persevered, and came up with the Kellerman Kooler, aka the Dirty Watermelon Margarita, which is guaranteed to get everyone loosened up for the dance ...

I love the band X. In the '70s and '80s, these California punk rock icons inspired many young people like myself, and I’ve always especially admired lead singer Exene Cervenka. But I noticed something distressing over the past few months. She's calling herself a “Conspiracy Therapist” on Twitter, writing some disturbing tweets, and posting videos like The Blunt Truth about The Trayvon Martin Case. (Which essentially complained that the uproar ... Read More

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of BUST’s June/July Summer Music Issue, featuring the one and only Dolly Parton on the cover! We’ve got an exclusive interview with the icon, in which she spills the beans on her inspiration, her childhood, and, of course, feminism.
And there’s plenty more hotness in this issue, including interviews with Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame, and smokin’ musical up-and-comers like Mary Lambert, Little ... Read More

If you've ever taken a trip with your mom to the Mall, or as in my case, taken your kids to the mall, you will no doubt appreciate this awesome clip by our favorite Mom impersonator, John Roberts. He also plays the voice of Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers, and most certainly loves his mama. Happy Mothers Day!

How many times have you passed by a homeless person, and not noticed them? Living in N.Y.C. I would venture to guess that number would be very, very high. It's not often that we stop to talk to, or even look at the homeless. It's something we'd simply rather not acknowledge. Maybe because its scary to think that anyone could be sitting there, a loved one, or possibly ourselves? Well the folks over at the New York Rescue Mission have cleverly created an incredibly ...

A bunch of BUST editors and friends were asked to judge Jonathan Toubin’s Soul Clap and Dance-Off a few weekends ago, and we had SOOOOO much fun! Above is a pic of the winner, Elizabeth Arnold (aka #66) who's moves were undeniable. The second runner up was also fantastic, but we didn't catch his name because, frankly, judging is hard work and you need to drink the entire time, so by 2 am we were pretty wasted. Sorry #100!
