Bad Bitches Who Need to Write a Book

nicki bad bitchNow that Amber Rose has announced  her book and released the cover art, we’re thinking about all the other Certified Bad Bitches™ we’d like to read an entire book about.

We’ve listed our favourite powerful female role models and listed their BBCs (Bad Bitch Credentials).

GWEN STEFANI
’90s/2000s icon, mother, fashion designer

RIHANNA
pop sensation, record holder, fashion icon

There are a million reasons why RiRi is the ultimate bad bitch, but she deserves a book on her fashion merit alone.

Fashion Bad Bitch Credentials
• Wore a completely transparent dress to last year’s CDFA Awards and twerked in it.
• Made “top butt” the new underboob at the 2014 Met Gala after party
• Rocks a bucket hat like it’s nobody’s business

Bad Bitch Credentials
• Created her own website Rookie, for teenage girls
Dissed a male adult two times her age:

That young people don’t have valid thoughts about the world because they haven’t been alive long enough is sadly a very popular and, frankly, unoriginal sentiment. When I think about that time, I was just responding to the world around me. And I was perceptive enough that I felt like I could make connections to things in my life. I don’t think it was abstract. And I am basically skeptical of any adults who have those kinds of things to say about young people because it seems to always very transparently stem from fear and insecurity. And to be honest, the fact that he’s shorter than me in real life.

• Sits front row at fashion events
• And did this all before the age of 20

NICKI MINAJ
Rapper, Feminist Hero, Businesswomen

Bad Bitch Credentials
• Was featured on a track with rap music’s biggest and baddest (and definitely out-rapped them all)
• Broke the Internet with the “Anaconda” music video
• Continually encourages women and promotes feminism

MIA
Rapper, Mother, All-Around Badass

Bad Bitch Credentials
Clapped back when the NFL fined her for sticking up her middle finger during the Superbowl halftime show in 2012

It’s a massive waste of time, a massive waste of money, it’s a massive display of powerful corporation dick-shaking. They want me on my knees and to say sorry so they can slap me on my wrist. Basically, so they can say it’s OK for me to promote being sexually exploited as a female than to display female empowerment through being punk rock.

• Gave us the quintessential bad bitch anthem: Bad Girls
• Has been an activist for women of colour, bringing attention of the oppression of Tamil people in her native country Sri Lanka

Sometimes I repeat my story again and again because it’s interesting to see how many times it gets edited, and how much the right to tell your story doesn’t exist. People reckon that I need a political degree in order to go, ‘My school got bombed and I remember it cos I was ten-years-old’. I think if there is an issue of people who, having had first hand experiences, are not being able to recount that – because there is laws or government restrictions or censorship or the removal of an individual story in a political situation – then that’s what I’ll keep saying and sticking up for, cos I think that’s the most dangerous thing. I think removing individual voices and not letting Tamil people just go ‘This happened to me’ is really dangerous
