This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that “dumb double standard” in the TV industry that’s got so many ladies’ feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one … or the leading actress/actor ratio one… or the one where “30 Rock” isn’t on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)  These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D. It’s true! For every time we ... Read More
In anticipation of the upcoming red carpet gala, the Girls mastermind has had a few things to say about the HBO show's nominations. Just now finishing filming the third season of her hit show, (not that anybody's counting the days or anything...) Dunham revealed that she's most excited for co-star's Adam Driver's comedy nomination. Although she's received three noms herself, his gave her a "shriek-y, joyful, amazed sensation." Dunham stated, "It means so much to ... Read More
  Who IS that girl?  We know all about how kids’ toys are divided by gender in really icky ways. Why can’t a boy use an Easy Bake Oven? Why aren’t girls playing with those trucks in the commercials? And the issue goes far beyond surface advertising – “boy products” often encourage building, activity, and adventure, while “girl products” usually emphasize appearance and foster skills like nurturing and cooking. These are all great ... Read More
It's rare to hear such sincere honesty and openness from an icon scrutinized by the public eye, but impressing us is something Kim Gordon does best. In a recent interview the feminist punk rock star continues to prove that Gordon is a strong, classy lady we at BUST will never stop fangirling over. She's been featured in BUST numerous times over the years, so you can imagine our excitement to read about her life now, as she works with her new band to appease our ... Read More
Lily Tomlin has been a feminist longer than I’ve been alive, so when she says things have changed for women in terms of comedy, character acting, and raising girls to be feminist, I believe her.  While talking to Vanity Fair, Tomlin commented on Girls, Tina Fey, and shifts in feminism. She joked about getting scolded in the early ‘70s for saying “boner” on stage during a bit and laughs off old memories of audience reactions to her ... Read More
This season, LD and her motley crew have tested the boundaries of the gals-in-the-city genre: we’ve seen elements of family drama, buddy comedy, and horror (yes, I’m still having Q-Tip nightmares). This episode, we go full-on rom-com. Where’s Shane West when you need him? (Hint: not here.) “I can like your cock and not be a whore.” I’m loath to re-open the box of shittiness that was last week’s episode, but I feel ... Read More
  Constantly in the media spotlight, always controversial and ever-addicting Lena Dunham sat down for an interview with Playboy.  Interviewer David Rensin talked to Dunham about feminism, Girls, men, and, of course, sex. In 20 questions, Rensin explores how Dunham first learned about sex, how she would react if she woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, and her role as the writer/director of Girls. Girls is my current TV ... Read More
Pictured: the face I'm making right now.  Guys, we need to talk about this episode. Real talk. Help me work this through, because whoa, Nelly, am I having trouble doing it on my own.   Shoshanna confesses her misdeeds to Ray. Kinda. “I held hands with a doorman!” she exclaims. SURE, Shosh. We’ve all held hands with a doorman, ifyaknowwhaddamean. Ray thinks it’s cute and kisses her patronizingly on the forehead. Shoshanna is still filled with ... Read More
It’s hot in the city. Tempers are flaring, milk is spoiling, and deadlines are approaching—and it appears that everything’s about to come to a head. Shosh, Ray, and Marnie discuss Jessa’s disappearance. Nobody seems to be all that worried, which is convenient, because neither am I. Marnie is wearing stupid-looking pigtails. It’s not a good look—but then again, neither is stalking mournfully off into the sunset when Shoshanna ... Read More
Hannah and Jessa take a break from their exhausting lives as Professional Semi-Depressed and/or Painfully Writer’s-Blocked Persons to go frolic in the woods upstate. Specifically, they’re going to visit Jessa’s estranged father, because what we all need right now is more forced drama in Jessa Land. Père Jessa, a paranoid, addict-y mess, eventually appears and hauls them back to the family abode. Ka-POW! Suddenly we’ve apparated into ... Read More
