I’m on More magazine’s annual Fierce List this year. As described by More, the Fierce List is a, “pride of lionesses … who’ve most impressed us with their brave stands, bold plans, daring artistry and kick-ass commitment.” Dude.
This year’s list of 54 women includes Queen Elizabeth, makeup-artist Bobbi Brown, singer Adele, Gloria Steinem, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, women’s basketball coach Pat Summit, author Joan Didion, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, and … (gulp) … me.
I plead guilty to tooting my own horn on this one, but how likely is something like this going to happen again in my life?!?!! Probably never, I tell you! I’m in a magazine, y’all! (imagine me dancing foolishly around my office in my sweats and unwashed face, because that’s exactly what I’m doing)
Go pick up a copy of More magazine’s May 2012 issue, on newsstands now and featuring Chelsea Handler on the cover, if you’re looking for inspiration. There are a lot of great stories in the Fierce List this year, featuring both famous and not-so-famous women. And thanks to all of you, because without you there’d be no way in hell I’d be on this list.
