Beyoncé On Her Career: "I'm Not Bossy. I'm The Boss."
Aside from generally being queens in their respective fields, Beyoncé has something else in common with Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Garner and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg: all of these women hate the word "bossy." This strong fleet of ladies has joined forces to promote a new campaign to ban the term "bossy," which conjures up images of goody two-shoes in schoolgirl skirts, for the purpose of changing the dialogue of female leadership from elementary school and beyond.
Officially dubbed Ban Bossy, this movement is sure to gain major traction thanks to its star-studded cast of supporters—and more importantly, an incredibly empowering cause. "We need to recognize the many ways we systematically discourage leadership in girls from a young age—and instead, we need to encourage them," said Sandberg. "So the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy? Take a deep breath and praise her leadership skills, instead."
Beyoncé chimed in too, stating: "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," followed by this gem: "I'm not bossy. I'm the boss." Hell yes you are, Bey.
