A compendium of 35 incredible female pop stars whose energies, virtues, and vices make them the ideal role models for our age—powerful women who can teach us all how to discover our own inner goddess. We are living in the age of the music goddess: Beyoncé. Lady Gaga. Taylor Swift. Britney Spears. Nicki Minaj. Cardi B. Pink. Rihanna. Alicia Keys. Kelly Clarkson. Kacey Musgraves. Janelle Monae. These divas post astounding album sales, enjoy millions of radio plays, YouTube views, and social media followers, and sell out stadiums. While we are awed and inspired by their success, we worship them for so much more. Beyoncé’s dedication to work and family. Nicki Minaj’s no-bullshit attitude. Taylor Swift’s business acumen. Pink’s badass form of motherhood. Jennifer Lopez’s transformation from “Jenny from the block” to multimedia mogul. Each of these goddesses speaks to us in her own unique way. Filled with information, advice, insights, playlists, and forty gorgeous color illustrations, Pop Star Goddesses will help you tune in and turn on your own divine energy.
