Weekend News Roundup! Our Favorite PSA

Published March 10, 2014


YOU TELL ‘EM, BEY


Happy Monday! Here’s our compendium of pop-culture news you may have missed while you were doing more important things over the weekend.   

• The True Detective finale crashed HBOGo, which we know both from attempting to watch it on HBOGo ourselves and having a Twitter account. If you’re still waiting to see the episode and are in need of spoiler-free distractions, we recommend reading our interview with True Detective director Cary Fukunaga or Andy’s interview-from-beyond with Matthew McConaughey. If you are lucky enough to own a real HBO account and saw the episode, shhhhhhh.  [Twitter]

In the best PSA ever (seriously, even better than those “I’m a girl!” subway adverts), Beyoncé, Diane von Furstenberg, Condoleezza Rice, Jennifer Garner, and friends encourage girls to be leaders and not worry about being dismissed as “bossy.” We assume “bossy” is a stand-in for “bitchy” and other less pleasant things, because when’s the last time someone tried to undermine you voicing your opinions as a woman by calling you “bossy”?

300: Rise of An Empire won the box office, though Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel did pretty for  its four-theater release. [BOM]

Somewhere in Texas, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had breakfast together. [People]

And in London, Drake and Rihanna had dinner. [E!]
