I was taken back to childhood days of dancing and singing along to the radio with my older sister, Danielle. There is -- and always will be -- something magical about sharing the dance floor with the person who has been able to finish your sentences.
For many people, myself included, the messages in Beyoncé's new album hit home. In songs such as "***Flawless," Beyoncé sings about the unrealistic ...
The august Roseland Ballroom had Lady Gaga get all wistful over the impending closure, it was quite a moment for the music fans who have drunk on the music that was born within its walls, it was quite a moment. In that sense, the "Poker Face" musician is in for a residency program. When she ends it, Roseland would call it a day too.
I'm all for encouraging more girls to become leaders. But in my mind, the Ban Bossy campaign is focused on the wrong people for the wrong reasons.
Sheryl Sandberg knows business, media and academia, and she knows what limits women in these areas. She's putting her expertise to use where it has the greatest influence. Whether Ban Bossy effectively changes how girls are labeled for all time, or increases the confidence of just a few, it's work worthy of praise.
I've been called bossy before and I am sure I will be called bossy again. I actually take it as a compliment.
Yes, being called "bossy" is a bad thing, but that's because being "bossy" is a bad thing. It's uncomfortable behavior coming from anyone, woman or man, girl or boy.
I'm not saying bossy's a good word. It can be used to paint girls as shrill. But it isn't the same thing as leadership. It tries to make others bend to your will.
Too many websites and too many shoes too choose from! So what attracts women to purchase fashion footwear on some of the most popular online websites?
We can campaign to ban the word bossy but the most important thing we need to do is to teach girls to be a Boss. We have to teach them to walk in their God given talents, skills and abilities. By doing this we are essentially highlighting skills that will make them productive citizens in our society.
You can be bossy without being good at your job. You can be bossy without having an ounce of leadership qualities. Frankly, you can be bossy and have every right to be, because that's what bosses have to do sometimes, whether they're the head of a company or a household.
'm delighted by "Ban Bossy," which is an organized effort like our own that is devoting resources to publicly giving girls more attention and empowering them to fully realize their potential. It is long overdue and sorely needed.
Obviously, we can't all be the queen, but we can still all be flawless. Some days, I like to streak eyeliner above my lids like I'm Cleopatra, wear my favorite vintage gold lamé lacket and floral Doc Martens, and take on the world.
B, thank you for letting down your third wall, for sharing your inspiration, your fantasies, your truth with us. Even though I don't know you, I feel we have a little more in common than I realized before, and you are a stunning emblem of what it means to be a woman -- flaws and all.
Girls deserve to be the narrators of their own stories. While obstacles remain, a new generation of activists are using media to create innovative, interactive experiences that teach, inspire and give voice to girls -- and the women they will grow up to be.
The recent criticism of this influential pair can help move us toward a more complex understanding of how race, class, and gender intersect in contemporary popular culture.
