There’s nothing more clichéd to me than “PREACH!”. And yet, reading Mindy Kaling’s excerpt from her upcoming book in Glamour, about how to achieve confidence, there’s no other word for it. Let’s cut to the chase here: “Confidence is just entitlement…entitlement is simply the belief that you deserve something. Full Story
The interview with Vanity Fair happened in London a few weeks ago, well before Nicki Minaj gave her some real talk on Twitter. At the time, if you recall, she was girl squading all over her stage.
