“Florals and groovy prints are popping up all over the place! Blouses, dresses, and even coats all seem a little bit funkier now that the ‘60s have returned. What do they want from us? Weren’t the ‘90s enough for them? Will it EVER be enough for them?” - The ‘60s Are Back! Why Won’t They Just Leave Us Alone?
I recently took over as the Music Editor of BUST Magazine, which is proving to be an amazing gig! Today I posted an interview I got to do with Orenda Fink about her new album; we talked about Jungian dream therapy, sexism she faced in Azure Ray, and what losing her dog taught her. It was one of my favorite interviews that I’ve ever done and actually made me cry, which was extremely professional.

It got off to such a great start with the authentic batshit crazy of #BookGate but it feels like it’s been struggling to pick up momentum ever since. And we’ve barely even seen Heather.
“Remember to avoid the SHAYs: Smart, Hot, Ambitious and Youngerthanyou’s. These qualities are almost always a deadly combination found in women who want to destroy you for their own gain. Instead, look for PLODs: Plain, Lazy, Old, and Dumb. There’s little chance they’ll repurpose your ideas as their own to gain visibility. How could they? They don’t even understand what the company does. Hell, they can barely read. And they can’t steal your man if they don’t fit into your clothes!”
