While sitting on the L-train heading to Brooklyn, I found myself completely surrounded by images of the famous Youtubers Michelle Phan and Bethany Mota who are a part of Youtube’s latest commercial campaign to promote successful creators. With over 5 million subscribers each, these “beauty gurus” are making quite a name for themselves, but that doesn’t come without the harsh criticism from many viewers in a dastardly online ...

On the evening of June 5, 2014, the ATAS held a panel appropriately entitled "Women Ruling TV" featuring the women of hit shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Jodie Foster directed one episode of each, and Robin Wright directed an episode of House of Cards (on which she plays Kevin Spacey's cunning spouse). Taylor Schilling (Piper on OITNB) and Kate Mulgrew (Big Red) were also present, along with Netflix documentary The Square director Jehane Noujaim. ... Read More
Last night I was watching the first game of the NBA Finals when this ad came on:What?  What on Earth possessed the advertising team at DirecTV to think that this ad was acceptable?  Let’s just start with the fact that the “woman” in this ad isn’t a woman.  She’s a marionette.  Can someone say objectification?  Because this ad sure does!  Not only that, but the fact that she’s controlled by a ...

YouTube user, Wickydkewl, put out an ad on Craigslist seeking women who had never seen their own vaginas before. He compiled their reactions in a heartwarming video. Women avoiding looking and/or touching down there is not uncommon, so it makes me incredibly happy to see all of these women sharing their stories and exploring their bodies (something that we are taught not to do). A big thanks all around to everyone who participated! I am sure that they will inspire ... Read More
Our BUST-crush, musician Kelis (who's featured in our Apr/May 2014 issue), and her infamous song "Milkshake" made a special appearance at the recent Scripps National Spelling Bee.When contestant Sriram Hathwar, 14, was asked to use the word “feijoada” in a sentence, the "pronouncer" Dr. Jacques Bailly read: “While Tabitha discovered that her milkshake brought all the boys to yard …” before he was cut off by an off-camera voice. Dr. ... Read More
On Wednesday, the actress, comedian, producer and writer, Mindy Kaling returned to her hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and delivered a speech full of witty sarcasm that lead to incredibly poignant truths. Mindy Kaling is the first to admit that she does not have any sort of qualifications that scream  "Harvard Law School graduation speaker,” but her speech is so self- aware, honest, and laugh-out-loud hilarious that, by the end, it is obvious ...

I’ve been a pretty committed fan of the ABC reality television show  The Bachelor (a.k.a. the show for which I have the most-conflicted feelings)  since the first season in 2002. I was 10. Part of me loves the romantic fairy tale vibe (What?! I’m a human being! Why wouldn’t I want a Prince Charming?) and part of me gets sick about the entire concept. Hence, my conundrum with those who tote the show's female-centric spin off (The ... Read More
The one woman who shaped who I am today almost as much as my mother did, is Usagi Tsukino, also known as Serena in the American version of the anime Sailor Moon. I have faint memories of buying my first Sailor Moon VHS and staying up all night watching it during the summer while I was 6 years old. When I was 13, I bought my favorite season of the anime on a used DVD with my birthday money. As an adult, I’ve written many analytical essays about the themes of ... Read More
Retta, the comic powerhouse behind Parks and Rec’s indomitable Donna, schools us on everything from owning Twitter to surviving V-Day. If someone asks you who Retta is, and you reply “my imaginary best friend,” you’re pretty much in step with the rest of the world right now. The New Jersey native and hilarious triple threat (actor/comedian/trained opera singer) first became a household name with her portrayal of Donna Meagle, the uber-competent, ... Read More
Reality TV is best when it defies formula. No matter how hard Lifetime may try to market Little Women: L.A. into a corner, this show has the potential to put up a fight.  Little Women: L.A. is as feisty as its stars. It could be simply described as Real Housewives meets The Little Couple--more Housewives than Couple, though, so expect more cat fights than pedestrian marital issues. The beauty of the show occurs when its rudimentary premise breaks down. What's ... Read More
