If you care about RuPaul’s Drag Race at all then get ready to get jealous boogers…I met the queens of Season 3, well some of the queens, at the press event before the finale! I got so close to my girl Alexis “BAM BAM BAM” Mateo that I could see the contour make-up stripes down her nose. First, I must apologize for being late with this post since everyone knows Raja took the crown by now. I had to wait until I could watch the last episode ... Read More

Before The Real World, Horrible Housewives or Jersey Shore Jerks, there was An American Family. Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters ... Read More

I won’t lie, you will definitely find Lil Wayne in my iTunes library, but these fabulous little ladies of Watoto From the Nile do make a point. In fact, most of today’s hip-hop is overloaded with misogynistic lyrics and Lil Wayne is guilty. Their song “Letter to Lil Wayne,” is recorded over his track “Single” where their innocent voices challenge his inappropriate behavior and disrespect to women.
These girls who, by the ... Read More

Director Michel Gondry, known for directing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep has created an ironically hilarious video for The Living Sisters, “How Are You Doing.” The LA-based musicians, Inara George, Eleni Mandell, and Becky Stark have a very catchy sound and made a music video that seems to contradict the happy lyrics of “How Are You Doing?” The series of catastrophic events include burning your morning ...

The movie centers around a young Alaskan girl, Vanessa, who transfers schools to get her ex-boyfriend to notice her again. There, she meets and befriends a group of lovable social outcasts, and they form a team in hopes to win the school's "Snowstorm Survivor" competition. The setup is formulaic, perhaps, but Yoonessi's script takes it past cliché ... Read More

When I heard the radio commercial for the newest Criminal Minds spin-off, Suspect Behavior, I was shocked to find that it starred none other than famed feminist comedienne (and former BUST cover lady) Janeane Garofalo. Turns out Garofalo is taking the role seriously, telling the LA Times, "I don't think I'm that funny. I feel uncomfortable saying, 'How does a funny person get involved in this?' because comedy is subjective. So how do I get involved with deadly ... Read More
