Beyoncé and her newfound feminism strike again. (Hooray!)

In a new video for Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In Foundation (in partnership with Lifetime TV), Sandberg has recruited Hollywood celebrities such as Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, and Jennifer Garner (as well as people like former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) to advocate banning the word “Bossy.”

Noting the term is mostly applied to women in leadership roles as a way of keeping them down, all the people in the video point out that it’s time for change. “When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a ‘leader.’ Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded ‘bossy.’ Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys — a trend that continues into adulthood,” the new site BanBossy.com explains.

As Beyoncé notes: “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.” #Flawless.

Who would my mom cast in 'The Best of Me'? Hint... Matt Damon gets the lead

The big-screen adaptation of the 2011 Nicholas Sparks novel The Best of Me has switched hands from Warner Bros. to Relativity, the studio that ushered Safe Haven and Dear John into theaters, Deadline reports. While I have seen every Nicholas Sparks movie, I don’t actually read the books. Therefore, to help cast the film — i.e.  the  people who will inevitably be touching each other’s faces on the movie poster — I reached out to my mother, who’s read the entire Sparks canon and is currently bored awaiting release from the hospital. (She’s swooning over her doctor – she’s fine).

The story, if you are unaware, revolves around Dawson and Amanda, former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks who return to Oriental, North Carolina 25 years later to attend the funeral of Tuck, a man who supported their young, star-crossed love. Per the synopsis on Sparks’ site: “As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew — about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear — was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?READ FULL STORY
