Life Lessons From Your Favourite Divas

Beyoncé Knowles

This hot mom-singer-actress-model is truly destiny’s child. She is known for her phenomenal success and has a crazy fan following throughout the world. Her every move is talked about and she is admired for her strong work ethic and immense talent.

There are a lot of things to learn from this diva, but if we had to pick one, it would have to be:

Stick By Your Girls

Despite having phenomenal success as a soloist, Beyoncé remains loyal to her Destiny Child roots. They had split up and she first reunited with the group in 2004, for the Destiny Fulfilled album. Most recently, Destiny’s Child released the Love Songs album compilation, which featured the newly recorded song, “Nuclear.” Earlier this year, Beyoncé graciously shared her big moment on the stage at the Super Bowl XLVII with Destiny Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as they joined her onstage for her halftime performance. They continue to be best friends after all that has happened professionally. They build each other up and are still going strong. Now that’s what we call Girl Power!


Friends Forever

Sushmita Sen

Closer home, this diva is my personal favourite. Her eyes dazzle as much as her solitaires and she breaks convention with every step she takes. The Newest Recipient for the Mother Teresa Memorial International Award for Social Justice 2013, this fearless femme has bought enough accolades to last this country a lifetime. She was, after all, the first Indian to bring home the Miss Universe crown. This talented model, actress and business woman is the face of progressive India. No other Indian woman in the limelight has made as much of a statement about life, relationship and choices as much as she has. In fact, that may have been the reason that audiences haven’t accepted her but this woman with her devil may care attitude has done just as her heart pleases; and for that Sushmita, a whole generation of girls say, Thank You.

Clearly I could go on and on, but if I absolutely have to pick one thing to learn from this wonderful lady, it would have to be:

Be Unapologetic About Your Decisions

In 2000, Sushmita was 25 years-old and was winning awards and praises for her supporting role in Biwi No. 1; the world was at her feet. Yet she did something that no other Indian actress would dare to do; she adopted a baby girl named Renée. Sushmita chose to take over the responsibilities of motherhood, along with her acting career. Ten years later, Sushmita repeated history by adopting a second girl child.

She gave the world a message which was loud and clear:  You don’t need to be married to feel the joy of motherhood. 


Sush And Her Girls

Angelina Jolie

When we are learning things from beautiful women, how on earth can we leave out Angeline Jolie? This gorgeous diva has been doing things her way since forever. Though this powerhouse actor-director is regarded as the most beautiful woman on this earth, there’s so much more to this woman of substance.

Reach Out. (There’s a world apart from YOU)

A devoted humanitarian, Angelina Jolie was made a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency in 2001. She has made headlines for her work to obtain aid for refugees in Cambodia, Darfur and Jordan, to name just a few.

In 2005, Jolie received the Global Humanitarian Action Award from the United Nations Association of the USA for her activism on behalf of refugee rights. She continues to travel the world to drawing attention to global issues.

Three out of her six children are adopted from Cambodia and Vietnam.

Early this year underwent a double mastectomy in an effort to prevent breast cancer in the future. This was a very bold move on her part and she chose to share this news with the world to spread awareness about the cause of breast cancer.

Respect to the lady, for who she is and everything she stands for.
