In a move that must be doing wonders for sales, Lane Bryant's new lingerie ads have been banned from the airwaves by ABC television. Reps for the company claim that network execs deemed the commercials too sexy to run, which is kind of unbelievable since they've had no qualms showing Victoria's Secret ads in the past. The snowball does get rolling, however, as we learn that Fox News (which had no problem showing the below Victoria's Secret spot) also denied Lane ... Read More
If you didn’t catch Glee (or aren’t a fan, somehow) last night, you missed an awesome episode. And I say that as an admitted flip-flopping fan of the FOX show. Something about the Material Girl’s spirit really translated in the show, making for a female-empowering hour of song and dance. It managed to, in its fun way, touch on some serious societal issues, including the way (high school aged) men treat women. One of my favorite things about the ... Read More
"Green Porno," the uber weird and wonderful series by Isabella Rossellini, now has a follow-up in "Seduce Me." Like its predecessor, "Seduce Me" demonstrates the bizarre mating rituals of animals--including bedbugs (ew!), ducks, salmon, and snakes--with Rossellini costumed up and acting out each of the various roles. It's crazy entertaining. How something this whimsical made it in this economy beats me. There's no upsell to this thing, except maybe a line of ... Read More
Aziz Ansari will be sure to unleash his ace stand-up on the MTV stage this June at their 19th Annual Movie Awards, and we can’t wait! Ansari has had ‘em rollin’ in the aisles (or couches rather) with his new sitcom, Parks and Recreation; sharing the night along with BUST’s April/May cover man, Tracy Morgan of 30 Rock. Essentially locking in Thursday nights as a sure-fire date with the boobtube. Ansari joked with Entertainment Weekly about ... Read More
The Sutton family recently competed on Family Feud and got the category "Something Everyone Knows About Ellen DeGeneres."  And clearly, the first thing people think of when they think of Ellen is that she's HILARIOUS, right?  Nope, it's that she's gay.  Good lord.  Even more bizarre is the weirdo who guessed that something everyone knows about Ellen is that she "doesn't like our country very much?"  Uh, what?  Is it her adorable smile ...

Created by Dave Willis (Aqua Teen Hunger Force), the program also features the voices of ... Read More
