Jennifer Lawrence was just named Associated Press's Entertainer of the Year. The recognition doesn't come as a surprise. She won an Oscar, SAG Award and Golden Globe for her role as the widowed Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook beating out Meryl Streep (and she wasn't afraid to, jokingly, let everyone know it!). While winning that Oscar, she fell up the stairs to the stage and we still loved her. She killed the red carpet during awards season, wearing Dior each time. Handled a wardrobe malfunction flawlessly at the SAG Awards. She's the star of The Hunger Games trilogy, which is proving to be much more than your average novel-turned-film. She was on the cover for Vogue's September issue. She's also received a 2014 Golden Globe nomination for her role as the comedic, yet psychotic, wife to Christian Bale in American Hustler, and another Oscar nod on the horizon. This year is already shaping up to be a good one for her!
The thing I like the most about the two girls is that they aren't afraid to speak their minds. They're sassy and honest, a trait we can all appreciate. They don't care what people think about them and don't hide who they are just because they're at an event or being interviewed. This is something we can all learn from! Take note readers: be yourself and say how you feel. Simple enough, right? Let's not forget the major leap they each made in chopping off all their locks!
Miley Cyrus is my age and maybe that's the reason I cannot stop rooting for her. In the last few years she has (not quite in this exact order) fallen in love, gotten engaged, been cheated on (and by the lyrics in her new album, she found out herself she had been cheated on), fired her entire management team and handles almost everything herself, broke off her engagement, dressed up as a teddy bear and twerked on Robin Thicke (it was a joke, people!), released a beautiful album, swung naked on a wrecking ball, smoked a blunt on stage, commanded the twittersphere, landed the cover of numerous magazines like Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Cosmo and Rolling Stones (she did, however, lose the cover of Vogue after her VMA performance. whomp.), had the most views of a music video on VEVO, sang with a cat crying diamonds and had one of her dogs die all while being in the public eye. We may not understand all of her motives, but she is a strong girl and even a smart business woman! She's recreated herself to the public with her appearance and social media platforms all on her own. No matter if you love her or hate her, you are talking about her! You are waiting to see what she does next and she doesn't care if you are booing or cheering because she got you to watch her. You don't have to agree with what she does, but she does it with power and confidence. Can you say the same for yourself? (I smell New Year's Resolutions..)
ALL HAIL THE QUEENS!
