On IFC's Portlandia, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein lock Steve Buscemi in a feminist bookstore after forcing him to make a purchase for using the customers-only bathroom. Picking up something embroidered with a rotary phone, he says, "I'll take this wristband." "That's not a wristband, that's a coffee cozy," they reply in earnest. From dumpster diving to ear-plugged bike messengers to the Sherlock Homies, a hipster adult hide 'n seek league, the two are funny ... Read More
In totally adorable news, the next Muppet movie (set for release in February 2012) will see a totally different side to everyone's favorite muppets—Animal's in an anger-management clinic, Fozzie's started a tribute band—including Miss Piggy, who will, in Muppet world, be the new plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris. I can only hope the film with feature a fashion spread with Miss Piggy as the model—she's looking pretty cozy with Marc Jacobs ... Read More
Admittedly, tru TV's reality show Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel doesn't exactly broadcast a feminist tone, from the internet tagline "Sexy women in teeny bikinis hang poolside at Las Vegas' hottest party." to the near-constant clips of gyrating ladies and screaming, beefy, tribal-tattooed, shants-clad men. It's probably not the sort of show you'd see a promo for and think, "Gee, that looks worth checking out!" However, we all know that we can find ... Read More
 In 2010, HBO premiered Afghan Star, a documentary about Afghanistan's version of "American Idol." The movie featured the story of Setara, a young woman whose head scarf slipped off while performing on the show. As you can imagine,  the quick reveal of her hair  sparked a controversy in the country.  On January 26th, HBO2 will debut their new documentary Silencing The Song: An Afghan Fallen Star, which follows Setara as "she deals with ...

Look at the TREE!!

For me, I really don't get into the Christmas spirit until I've watched this gem at least 3x. I know, I know, I post it every year, BUT, much like a Rankin-Bass Xmas shows, you can never get enough of John Roberts! And now that we have thankfully shipped our Feb. issue off to the printer, I can relax and finish my shopping. But first, who wants Bailey's?

Here at BUST HQ we're racing to get our latest issue to the printer, then take a well-deserved and much-needed break. Wanted to leave our viewers and fans with a nice little holiday message, and I don't think there's anyone, or anything, that can convey that happy, joyous holiday spirit better than Henrietta and Myrna here. Enjoy! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
When BUST TV's Lauren Mooney decided to go guitar shopping recently, she figured the talented and insanely cute Matt Costa would be the perfect person to bring along. And how! With three albums under his belt, he has contributed songs to the Curious George and I Love You, Man soundtracks, and his song "Mr. Pitiful" was recently used in an iPhone commercial. In the video below, the musician proves himself to be chock-full of good advice. First thing is ... Read More
I love what Oprah Winfrey has to say about her best friend Gayle King in the clip on ABC.com released today from her upcoming Barbara Walters special. I feel lucky to have friends in my life I'd say the same about. But what this clip has people asking is--why the tears? As if the waterworks belie the truth in what she's saying. If you watch this unfold you'll see that she actually cries when she talks about Gayle, not when she states the nature of their ... Read More
Jack Black is said to be developing a new show about adolescent girls with the foreboding title of Tiny Monsters. (Apparently, the working title was Little Bitches, but, unsurprisingly, that one never got off the ground.) Working with him is Ali Rushfield, who previously wrote for Fox’s Undeclared, which was a pretty funny show with pretty weak female characters.   Why be wary? Consider the facts:-It’s on Fox, home to the sad, sad, 21st ... Read More

So Long, Billy Crystal

Not only have the holidays arrived, but the equally glittery awards-show season lurks just around the corner. Say goodbye to the classic comedian host, though, because word on the street's (meaning, of course, the internet) that Anne Hathaway and James Franco will be MCing instead. Both are potential 2010 Oscar nominees- James Franco for that movie where he has to cut off his own arm, and Hathaway for Love and Other Drugs, the movie which she promoted on this ... Read More
