This is why the husband tells me not to put things on the stove #whoops #whichknobgoeswithwhichburner
Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.
Um, why did I not realize until last night that the director of True Directive, Cary Joji Fukunaga, looks like a delicious blend of Johnny Depp and Matthew McConaughey?!? It’s almost enough to make me forgive him for that horribly cerebral season finale.
Very excited to finally share the news! Mat leave is over and it was back to work today BUT it was across the dial, doing mornings at 102.3 Clear FM.
Believe me, it was a really tough decision to leave 92 CITI. But when the big bosses at 102.3 Clear FM came to me about doing a morning show for smart, strong, funny women…I was intrigued. It’s always bothered me how media downplays that many of us ladies have careers that we’ve worked really hard for and are proud of; they act like our partners are all bumbling oafs that can’t run a vacuum or change a baby when most women I know like & respect their spouse (not to mention enjoy getting naked with them). Instead of playing to the stereotypes, I’ve always wanted to be part of a show aimed at the varied, kickass, real women I know. Plus, when they told me that I’d be doing the show with my old co-host, Joe Aiello, and I’d have another female, Brittany Paulhus, to trade opinions with too, I signed on the dotted line.
I’ve loved my time at CITI and am really going to miss everyone who listened to the Backseat Drive. But this is an opportunity that I’m incredibly excited about and hope you’ll tune in Monday to Friday, 5:30 - 9 a.m. on 102.3 Clear FM.
