I have totally and completely fallen in love with Adele, the Cockney-accented diva (or diva-to-be, as the already-celebrated songstress is only 23 years old). Though I am still mourning Whitney, I was giddy about how elegant Adele looked in her vintage-inspired dresses while winning 6 Grammys last night (including the coveted Album of the Year award for 21). My friend commented that Adele was channeling fellow foxy Brit Kate Winslet with her new blonde 'do, ... Read More

One of our fave photographers, Aliya Naumoff, is in the MTV Canada spotlight and we are lovin' it. You've definitely seen her work in the pages of BUST, including a classic portrait of Kathleen Hanna for a past music issue. She has also done work with Rolling Stone, Nylon, Vice and The New York Times, including poignant portraits whose sales went to benefit victims of the Haitian earthquake.
MTV gave our girl their full "cool ... Read More

Wonderful news (for me and, I think, humanity)! Proposition 8, the human-rights violation of a California law that tried to deny same-sex couples the right to marry, has been deemed unconstitutional by a federal appeals court. That court's decision came after it spent a whole year hearing arguments from both sides. It now looks like Prop 8 may be on its way to the Supreme Court.
Prop 8, which made marriage in the state legal only between a man and a woman, was ... Read More
So I have this insignificance of an Afro that I am trying to grow out, Angela Davis-style. Lately, though, I have been getting tired of looking at it. It's not that I hate it---I love my hair---but I have dyed it every color you can think of and I'm looking for something different and fun for the rest of the winter.
Ever watch Poetic Justice? You know, the movie where Tupac and Janet Jackson make an intense love connection? Well, Ms. Jackson--cause I'm nasty--has ... Read More
Here's a bad idea from Texas, the state that has been bumming us out hardcore lately:
There should be a law that all women considering abortions in the state of Texas must have sonograms performed on them to view fetal images, hear fetal heartbeats, and have fetal features described to them...by their doctors...out loud.
You and I are probably thinking, isn't this idea fucking unconstitutional?
Well, not according to an appeals court in Texas. They have ... Read More
We love Portlandia, so we were tickled by the new Entertainment Weekly-exclusive short Portlandia: Deam of the 1890s. I wonder how they get through their takes, 'cause I can't hold back the laugh-tears. I especially love Fred Armisen's faux-bearded face in this one, and Carrie is as hilarious as ever. This could easily apply to Brooklyn, too. Go ahead, watch: It's as if President McKinley never got assassinated.

Until yesterday, I didn't know that camel toe was a problem that you needed a product to solve, but if you've been wondering how to stop your clothes from displaying your crotch crack, the Smoothgroove is here! Fashionista is reporting---with an understandable tinge of disbelief---that the front-wedgie-eliminating wonder (created by a woman named Susan Laurie) is finally available for purchase. SmoothGroove is like a sports cup that covers the vulva to make ... Read More
The BUST office has been all a-giggles at this clip from The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Apparently, Kristen Bell---star of Veronica Mars and Forgetting Sarah Marshall ---is in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with sloths; so when her boyfriend (Dax Shepard) surprised her on her 31st birthday with Bimbo the Sloth, this happened:

In a total mindf*ck for me and basically everyone interested in women's sports, sources---from The Guardian to ESPN---are confirming that the Women's Professional Soccer league has been cancelled, even though the United States National team just qualified to play in the Olympics.
The reason seems to be that team owner Dan Borislow, who has a history of clashing with WPS officials, is battling it out big-time with league owners in the court room. ... Read More
Bjork makes me believe in music. Since my first listen of Venus as a Boy, I have been entranced by what she can do with her voice, ingeniously combining it with unconventional instruments, sounds and collaborators. The genius mega-artist has released her eighth album, Biophilia, to breach the gap between nature, science, technology, and music. Not only does Biophilia feature Tesla coil instruments, it is accompanied by an education program for middle ... Read More
